Tiffany Haddish will be joining Chris Pratt’s Emmet Brickowski and Elizabeth Banks as Wyldstyle in 2019’s The LEGO Movie sequel.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Haddish will continue the meteoric rise that has seen her steal Keanu, Girls Trip, and this year’s Academy Awards, by voicing an important new character in the Mike Mitchell (Trolls, Shrek Forever After, The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water) directed sequel.
The writer/director duo behind the $450 million grossing original, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, wrote the first draft of a sequel script that was most recently re-written by BoJack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg. They will remain on board as producers.
Next up for Haddish are hosting duties for the 2018 MTV Awards, before starring in Night School alongside Kevin Hart.
The LEGO Movie Sequel will be released on February 8th, 2019.
