There's plenty more LEGO movies headed our way

11 months agoby:

Yesterday Warner Bros. dropped a whopper of a release schedule in regards to its DC line-up. Between DC and Marvel (and even Sony), comic book fans have a lot to look forward to for the rest of the decade. Going by almost unnoticed was its future plans for LEGO movies. THE LEGO MOVIE, featuring a stellar ensemble cast led by Chris Pratt and Elizabeth Banks (among others) brought in $468 million worldwide on roughly a $60 million budget. Given those numbers it's only a matter of time before more LEGO is brought in and it looks we have some dates to go along with 'em.

The next LEGO flick in the works is that of the Ninjago variety which is currently slated for a September 23, 2016 release. After that would be a sequel to THE LEGO MOVIE on May 26, 2017. The next two dates are for unspecific Warner Bros. animation projects but word on the street is that if the LEGO flicks keep bringing in those numbers, we can expect a second Ninjago move on May 25, 2018 and an end to the LEGO trilogy on May 24, 2019. That is, of course, barring any Marvel LEGO flick that might pop up on the same day, in which case they would push it up to March.

If nothing changes, expect THE LEGO MOVIE 2 on May 26, 2017.

Extra Tidbit: Do you think Warner Bros. can keep the momentum with LEGO going, or do you think THE LEGO MOVIE was a fluke?

Bring them On!

Not sure how I would handle the NinjaGo movie, as i can only assume it would have to stay more within whatever universe these blocky ninjas live in and be a bit more serious, did I just say that about Legos!? But I had not idea how much I would enjoy the Lego Movie, its a favorite of mine now. Just goes to show you if they have a good story and writing, and don't dumb it down then it can be enjoyed by all ages.

Everything is Awesome!

Yes, can't wait for more Lego movies. This was hands down my favorite film of the year so far (with X-men being a close 2nd). Hell I'll even give that Ninjago movie a fair shake when it comes out.

Meh, while the Lego Movie had some sweet ideas it consisted mostly of characters falling and screaming which was pretty annoying in the end.
Of course a giant corporation like Lego wants to produce more movies aka advertisement. I personnally don't feel the need for more movies

If they keep on exploring new worlds in the Lego brand, while maintaining the heart that made the first one work so well, I think it can continue to be both successful and fun. The first Lego movie did get some rightful criticism for skewing almost exclusively toward the male demographic, even down to youngsters (my niece was surprisingly meh about the movie, and she usually loves anything animated). I think that's something that could be improved upon with a sequel. If they keep the Toy

If they keep the Toy Story-esque twist, it would be interesting to see what happens when the boy and his sister both try to play with it.

Good observation and I'm not one to argue with your niece but I don't know, I thought Unikitty's arc would've been a hit with lots of girls.

Lego Movie was good because it passed that line of childish.

I wasn't psyched for the Lego Movie. It looked like another stupid kids movie, like Frozen (I hated Frozen, because I'm not 10 or a mentally challenged man child.) But the Lego Movie did something that really made it stand out, it had some adult humor but it also had a meta joke about the real world that just blew everyone's mind. It was the smartest thing I have seen a kids movie do in ages.

You always find a way to cross that line from just stating an opinion that you have every right to have to insulting everyone who does not share the same point-of-view. You don't like Frozen? That's fine, but don't act like your opinion is final and call anyone who disagrees with you "mentally challenged" and a child. There is plenty of value in that movie for all ages to appreciate. I will not disparage your thoughts on the film; don't make cruel statements about other dissenting views.

Also, it may be possible that some mentally challenged children have a better brain capacity than you, but I won't make that assumption, because that would serve no purpose.

Extra tidbit: No, it wasn't a fluke. I think the screenplay has a lot going for it. I was surprised, very much surprised, in the third act and came out of theatre with a big smile. Part of The LEGO Movie success is that you get to see all sort of LEGO characters in one movie, not just specific group of characters say LEGO Ninjago or the new Chima. I'm looking forward to The LEGO Movie's sequel which hopefully would recapture the magic of the first movie once again.

Tidbit: I don't know. I loved the 'Lego Movie' but I think one of the reasons it worked was Miller & Lord's involvement.

I loved the Lego Movie and I want more but I think it's very easy to lose sight of what made that movie a success in the race to build a highly lucrative franchise. The Lego Movie was made by people who evidently clearly loved and still love Lego. It was also made with a whole bunch of care and attention to detail and its script was not only funny but had further layers examining themes such as conformity, creativity and the importance of self-expression and play. It's very, very easy to fall

It's very, very easy to fall down the chute into Cars territory with this, so I'm hoping against hope WB will keep that from happening and that Phil Lord and Chris Miller are continuously involved in future movies, even if just as consultants.
