In a world of bricks and blocks, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part has a lot to live up to. The first film was such a pleasant surprise from the team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller, utilizing a special brand of humor with one of the most instantly recognizable toys ever.
This morning, the first trailer for the The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part hit, and it’s pretty great. The announcement tweet reads “it’s been five years since the horrific events of Taco Tuesday”, and the Mad Max of it all is brilliant.
