Rewind a few years ago: Many scoffed at the idea of there being a film about LEGO, or something even worth talking about.
Yet, 2014’s “The LEGO Movie” and the recent “LEGO Batman Movie” were huge blockbuster success. It’s hard to imagine how director Chris Miller could possibly top those films. But he already has 2 things in mind – space + musical.
During his recent podcast interview with Shanilan On Batman, Miller spoke about the behind-the-scenes development in regards to “The LEGO Movie” sequel. “‘LEGO 2’ is going to be this big musical and space action movie. They need a lot of the writing, a lot of development, not only with script development, but development with songwriters. So it was very ambitious to get that movie out,” he said.
Although the first “LEGO Movie” wasn’t a musical, it did produced a super catchy Oscar-nominated theme song “Everything is Awesome”, sung by The Lonely Island together with Teagan & Sara. If the popular earworm became everyone’s favourite song, surely they’ll look forward to more right?
“LEGO Movie 2” is slated for release on 8th February 2019, so hopefully a LEGO musical with space action will worth the wait.
