It's been four years since The Lego Movie hit cinema screens, and proved that toy lines could be successful film franchises without having to involve Michael Bay and his explosion fetish. Naturally the film spawned a direct spin-off, a spin-off that isn't really a spin-off, and a sequel that's due next year. That sequel is what we're interested in now, since it's just been given a new title and an official logo.
Originally called The Lego Movie Sequel, the film is now officially called The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part. It's a weird choice, really emphasising the fact that it's the second film, though it does seem to be poking fun at all those young adult book adaptations that insist in splitting up their final story into two pieces. There's also a new logo:

We don't know a great deal about the sequel, other than the fact Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, and Elizabeth Banks will be returning as Emmett, Batman, and Wyldstyle, alongside Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum who will be playing Green Lantern and Superman for a third time. Tiffany Haddish has also been cast as one of the film's leads, though there are zero details about her character.As for the plot, we literally know nothing.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller have written a script, alongside Raphael Bob-Waksberg and Michelle Morgan. Directing duties have fallen to Mike Mitchell who was involved with such classics as Shrek Forever After, Deuce Bigalo: Male Gigalgo, Sky High, and Alvin & the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked. It's due to be released on 9th February 2019.
