AceShowbiz - Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the director-screenwriter duo behind "The Lego Movie", have shared the setting of the movie's follow-up. Speaking to Empire magazine, Lord and Miller who are now writing the next installment reveal that "The Lego Movie 2" is set to take place four years after the events in the first movie.
"Well I don't want to give you spoilers but we were really interested in what happens to that boy who's in the meta story in the first movie when he's four years older. When he's an adolescent how does that change his point of view?" Miller told the magazine. "And it's nice to have the characters start in a different place from the first movie. Emmet, for example, was in an existential crisis of having seen another dimension and was questioning the whole point of his existence."
"The Lego Movie" featured voices from Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill and Morgan Freeman among others. It raked in $257.8 million domestically after it was released last July.
Following the success, the Warner Bros. and Lego are preparing two other movies in addition to "The Lego Movie 2". There will be "Ninjago" which is set for September 23, 2016 and "The Lego Batman Movie", voiced by Will Arnett, which is set for a 2017 release date.
