The much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office phenomenon that started it all, “The LEGO® Movie 2” reunites the heroes of Bricksburg in an all new action-packed adventure to save their beloved city.
It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are now facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than it can be rebuilt.
The battle to defeat the invaders and restore harmony to the LEGO universe will take Emmet, Lucy, Batman and their friends to faraway, unexplored worlds, including a galaxy filled with fantastic planets, strange characters and catchy new songs. It will test their courage, creativity and Master Building skills, and reveal just how special they really are.
Reprising their starring roles from the first film are Chris Pratt as Emmet, Elizabeth Banks as Lucy (aka Wyldstyle), Will Arnett as LEGO Batman, Alison Brie as Unikitty, Nick Offerman as MetalBeard, and Charlie Day as Benny. They are joined by Tiffany Haddish and Stephanie Beatriz as new characters Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi and General Mayhem, respectively, and by Maya Rudolph.
“The LEGO Movie 2” was directed by Mike Mitchell (“Shrek Ever After,” “Trolls,” “Sky High”). It was produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Roy Lee, the team behind the LEGO film franchise since “The LEGO Movie,” and by Jinko Gotoh.
The screenplay was written by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, the Oscar-nominated producers of “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” with a story by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller and Matthew Fogel, based on LEGO Construction Toys. Trisha Gum was the animation director.
Serving as executive producers were Jill Wilfert, Keith Malone, Matthew Ashton, Chris McKay, Zareh Nalbandian, Ryan Halprin, Will Allegra, and Chris Leahy. The production designer was Patrick Marc Hanenberger, the editor was Clare Knight, and the music was composed by Mark Mothersbaugh.

“THE LEGO MOVIE 2” MAIN CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS
Emmet Brickowski is still the most positive, caring guy in town, and the only one who still believes everything is awesome. But his sunny disposition might not be enough for life in the dark new world of Apocalypseburg. The “Special” from the original story, Emmet may need to toughen up and change with the times if he wants to build a perfect, happy life with his special best friend, Lucy.
Lucy, also known as Wyldstyle, is a strong, kick-butt Master Builder. A fierce leader, she always fought for what she believed in. Lucy loves everything that makes Emmet special, like his kindness and optimism, and the fact that he puts 25 sugars in his coffee, but since LEGO® DUPLO® invaders left her city in pieces she fears those qualities won’t help him survive in these heck-ish times. In fact, she’ll need to rediscover those qualities in herself if she is to become the hero everyone needs her to be.
Rex is an ultra-cool, tough-guy hero, flying through space in his own over-the-top battle ship, the Rexcelsior, with his raptor crew. Rex is everything Emmet is not: confident, brash and experienced in the ways of the world. He claims to have invented the phrase “no regrets,” though he regrets not trademarking it. Also the inventor of the deconstructionator punch, Rex is a Master Breaker.
QUEEN WATEVRA WA’NABI
As queen of the faraway Systar System, Whatevra Wa’Nabi is a strategic, shape-shifting ruler with a secret plan that could change the lives of Emmet, Lucy and all their friends. When things don’t go her way, she’s not averse to breaking into a catchy song and dance number to get her point across.
GENERAL or SWEET MAYHEM
A masked space pilot from the Systar System, General Mayhem is Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi’s self-assured commander, who captures Emmet’s friends. She shoots ammunition in the form of stickers, stars and hearts that utter cute phrases in the tiniest little voices before exploding. Her name may be “Sweet” but this war has toughened her up.
Just as dark, sarcastic and self-centered as ever—and just as loveable—this super-cool Super Hero is always ready to save the world. Batman is slightly better at being a team player than he used to be…as long as everyone understands he’s the leader, and that he’s perfect and totally awesome in every way. Obvs.
UNIKITTY / ULTRAKATTY
This wide-eyed unicorn-feline mashup still loves glitter and everything sweet and fluffy, even though she has cultivated her own hard–edged Apocalypseburg side. Accessing her inner rage transforms Unikitty into her ferocious alter-ego, Ultrakatty: an oversized, roaring, fighting machine.
Salty as ever, this battle-ready pirate still has a good head on his shoulders – or wherever it happens to land when it gets knocked off. MetalBeard is constantly rebuilding his body, which is part pirate ship and part multi-purpose utility knife, with lots of useful accessories like a cutlass, double-barreled cannons and a sidearm shark launcher.
Fun-loving, resourceful and always ready to help his friends wherever it takes him, Benny is still one space-y dude with a cracked helmet. Benny is happiest when he’s in a spaceship, building a spaceship, talking about spaceships or just thinking about spaceships.
ICE CREAM CONE
Ice Cream Cone is Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi’s royal assistant and party planner. With so much to do and organize throughout Watevra’s vast empire, the super-efficient Ice Cream Cone can sometimes be a little short-tempered, and no one is better at stopping a conversation cold when he’s heard enough.
