THE LEGO MOVIE Sequel Set for May 26, 2017 Release

Everything will continue to be awesome.  With the incredibly impressive box office hold of The LEGO Movie, it was inevitable that Warner Bros. would be moving forward with a sequel.  The studio began developing a follow-up with screenwriter Jared Stern (Mr. Popper’s Penguins) weeks before the film’s release, and now Box Office Mojo reports that Warner Bros. has slated the untitled sequel for release on May 26, 2017.  It’s unclear who will be spearheading the film behind the scenes, but LEGO Movie writers/directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller previously said that they would probably produce the follow-up, so one imagines they won’t be returning as directors; they’re no doubt fielding a flood of offers for other projects at the moment.

After opening to $69 million and overwhelmingly positive reviews, The LEGO Movie’s current worldwide gross already stands at $202 million after just two weeks in release, and it’s expected to maintain its hold on the box office again this weekend.  WB is also developing a Ninjago movie and a recent report suggested that it might hit theaters before a LEGO Movie sequel, but it appears that the further adventures of Emmet and Co. will instead come first.
