Today, we’re pleased to debut an exclusive poster for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. The upcoming sequel takes place five years after the events of the first movie and the citizens of Bricksburg are now in a Mad Max-esque dystopia after fighting off invaders from LEGO DUPLO. Mike Mitchell (Trolls) directs alongside co-director Trisha Gum, working from a screenplay by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who became much more involved in the making of the sequel after they departed Solo: A Star Wars Story‘s production last summer.
I love the look of this poster, and I’d be excited to see how it looks under a real blacklight. It’s unusual, it’s eye-catching, and helps to continue to sell these movies as bright, colorful, and unusual. You know that with a LEGO Movie at this point you’re going to get something that’s not only funny, but surprisingly heartfelt as well. It goes without saying that this is one of my most-anticipated movies of the year (the original was my favorite film of 2014), and I really dig what they’re doing with the marketing campaign.
Check out the new The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part poster below. The film opens February 8th and features the voices of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Tiffany Haddish, and Stephanie Beatriz.
