A Lego Movie sequel will find its way to cinemas in 2017, Warner Bros has confirmed.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller’s The Lego Movie has racked up $275 million worldwide in under three weeks on release.
The film has a hugely impressive 96% “fresh” rating on the review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, indicating almost universal acclaim.
Little is known about the planned sequel other than a release date: May 26, 2017. There is no word as to whether Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will return for the second film, nor whether voice talent such as Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill have signed up for another outing.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, a Lego Ninjago movie, based on the Danish company’s popular Japanese-themed line, could be first into cinemas.
Latest reports do not confirm whether The Lego Movie sequel will be a straight follow-up, or a Ninjago spin-off.
