LEGO fans will rejoice. Because the beloved LEGO characters from The LEGO Movie are back in the much-anticipated sequel, “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.“
The film takes place five years after the heroes of Bricksburg faced those super cute (but evil) LEGO DUPLO invaders – who have turned their beloved city into a post-apocalyptic wasteland, now called, Apocalypseburg.
But there’s a new threat…in a form of a musical.
LEGO DUPLO invaders from outer space are wrecking things faster than they can rebuild. It’s up to Emmet (Chris Pratt), Lucy (Elizabeth Banks), Batman (Will Arnett) and their friends to test their courage in a strange galaxy called the “Systar System” to restore harmony to the LEGO universe.
We watched an early screening of the film and its a definite must-see for LEGO fans of all ages. And here’s why…
3 Reasons Why It’s Awesome
Meet New Characters
Regardless whose side you’re on, I guarantee those LEGO DUPLO invaders will win your heart. Characters like Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi (Tiffany Haddish) and General Sweet Mayhem (Stephanie Beatriz) bring girl-power to a whole new level. There’s lots of glitter, song & dance, and catchy new tunes. Plus a “Glampire” who happens to also be a DJ! The “Systar-System” is filled with cameos…so don’t blink!
Action-Packed, Funny & Scary Cute
This film is all of that and then some! It’s filled with action as our heroes try to defeat the space invaders. BUT those invaders are scary cute with their big, sparkly eyes…its hard to resist the level of cuteness. No joke. Adults will also appreciate the humor, especially between Emmet and Rex Dangervest, a rugged adventurer, who is also voiced by Chris Pratt.
Like the original, the movie reflects real-life. This time it’s the relationship between Finn and his younger sister, Bianca. There is conflict between the siblings due to an age and gender gap which parents of multiple kids can relate to. You see how it pans out metaphorically in the LEGO world.
The film ends with a heartfelt message of Peace.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part opens in theaters February 8 and if you’re in the Los Angeles area, be sure to check out The LEGO Space Hollywood!
