It’s time to go where no brick has gone before! Okay so I’ll probably get yelled at over this but I hated the first Lego Movie. I fell asleep for almost the entire movie and do so each time the kids turn it on. However, there are a couple of great lessons that can be learned from it. These lessons include standing up for yourself, being creative in the means that you find best creative and that parents need to listen to their kids. Now we have the Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.
The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part – In Theaters February 8
The much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office phenomenon that started it all, “The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part” 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 strange galaxy where everything is a musical. It will test their courage, creativity and Master Building skills, and reveal just how special they really are.
