Sequel To THE LEGO MOVIE Gets A Summer 2017 Release Date

This month saw the release of the brilliant animated film The LEGO Movie. The toy adaptation – which features DC superheroes such as Batman, Superman and Green Lantern – has already grossed over $200M worldwide, and its reception has been almost unanimously positive. So, it’s unsurprising that a sequel would be announced sooner or later. And today, Warner Bros. has announced a release date for the follow-up: May 26th, 2017. There are currently plenty of open slots in the summer schedule that year, with Despicable Me 3 and untitled Marvel and Pixar films dated. The live action Justice League movie is also rumored to be making its long awaited debut that summer.
The untitled sequel to The LEGO Movie will be written by Jared Stern (Mr. Popper’s Penguins) and Michelle Morgan (Girl Most Likely). It’s unknown if directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord will return, as well as cast members such as Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, and Will Arnett. More details should be confirmed soon. Hopefully, we’ll see bigger roles for other DC heroes such as Wonder Woman and The Flash in the follow-up.
