Briefly: Just before The LEGO Movie hit theaters and dominated the box office for two weekends in a row (it could be three after this weekend), we got word that Warner Bros. had already tapped Jared Stern (The Internship) to write the script, and he'll also have help from Michelle Morgan (Girl Most Likely). Though we don't know if the original film's writers and directors Phil Lord & Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs) will return, the studio has announced a May 26th, 2017 release date for the animated sequel, which is big because that's the huge box office Memorial Day weekend. We just hope the sequel can deliver more originality and creative brilliance like the first film. Stay tuned for more.
