The Lego Movie sequel gets a release date

24 February 2014

Already in the starting blocks.

The Lego Movie continues to dominate the worldwide box-office - and now the sequel has a release date.

The first feature film based on everyone’s favourite plastic blocks remains at number 1 in the US box office, approaching $300m in global takings after just three weeks.

The sequel - announced by Warner Bros before the first film was even released - will hit cinemas on May 26th, 2017.

As well as being a huge commercial hit, the animated adventure has won near-universal critical acclaim, including five stars from this esteemed outlet.

It’s currently unclear whether original directing team Chris Miller and Phil Lord (Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs) will return for the second film.
