It’s been nearly five years since The LEGO Movie introduced the world to the irresistible earworm “Everything Is Awesome”, and the sequel The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part aims to introduce another, even catchier song to audiences. The follow-up takes place five years after the events of the first movie as DUPLO invaders from outer space wreak havoc on Emmet, Lucy, Batman and the gang’s world. It’s up to them to save it, but no doubt plenty of twists and turns are in store thanks to the screenplay by Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
As the movie’s release date looms closer, Warner Bros. has released a new featurette for a new original song called, appropriately enough, “Catchy Song.” The song is also available for download and streaming, which reveals it features T-Pain and That Girl Lay Lay. You can hear a snippet of it in the video below, along with footage of the film’s voice actors like Chris Pratt and Alison Brie lamenting the catchiness of the tune.
I’m really excited to see what The LEGO Movie 2 has in store for audiences. The sequel went through a pretty lengthy and evolving development, with a couple of directors coming and going and a number of screenwriters taking a crack at the script. The finished screenplay is credited to Lord and Miller only, which tells me that the LEGO Movie writers/directors were heavily involved in crafting the finished story that will be making its way to screens next month.
So get a preview of this new earworm in the video below, and click here to listen to the whole thing. Directed by Mike Mitchell, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part hits theaters on February 8th.
