Warner Bros. has released a bevy of new high-resolution images from The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part. The follow-up finds Mike Mitchell (Trolls) stepping into the director’s chair, although Phil Lord and Chris Miller are still intimately involved as the film’s writers and producers. The project wasn’t without its difficulties, as it cycled through two other directors before landing on Mitchell, and a number of writers (including Bojack Horseman’s Raphael Bob-Waksberg) took a crack at the script. In the end, Lord and Miller are the sole credited screenwriters with Matthew Fogel receiving a “story by” credit, and Mitchell brought this thing home as director.
The story takes place five years after the events of The LEGO Movie and finds the world of Briskburg under invasion by DUPLO characters. The context here is that the DUPLO characters represent the toys of the young boy from the end of the LEGO Movie’s sister.
These images offer a closer look at the film, but no doubt plenty of twists and turns are in store. I do love that Channing Tatum’s Superman and Jonah Hill’s Green Lantern are back.
