Everyone doubted The LEGO Movie when it was released back in 2014, citing that it would simply be a cash-in on a popular brand. We were all proven wrong after its critical and commercial success, cementing it as one of the best-animated films of the decade. The film even spawned two spin-offs, The LEGO Batman Movie which was released earlier this year and the upcoming The LEGO Ninjago Movie.
Chris Pratt, the actor who voiced Emmett in the first film, is aware that it’ll be hard to top the first film. During the press tour for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Pratt told io9 some of the difficulties regarding the sequel.
The first movie is a very difficult movie to create a sequel to because, as all the best movies do, it paints itself into a corner. Especially by tearing down the fourth wall in the final act. That’s a major jump, so they’ve got some really awesome ideas on how to deal with that and I can’t wait for people to see it.
Pratt also revealed that he’ll get into doing his work on the sequel in the near future.
“I’ve done some work on it but we really haven’t done the bulk of the work yet. I’m about to get the newest draft of the script and really dive into it in about two weeks. I’ve got my major record in about two weeks.”
The LEGO Movie Sequel is directed by Mike Mitchell and will be produced by original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller.
The LEGO Movie Sequel hits theaters on February 8, 2019.
Things We Would Like To See In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol….
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is almost upon us, but we’re already talking about what’s next for our favorite ragtag group of cosmic heroes. It’s already been announced that writer/director James Gunn will return for a third outing in the Marvel franchise, with the upcoming sequel getting positive buzz on social media based from early screenings. Of course, the Guardians are also due to return for the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War films as well, teaming up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes against Thanos as he gathers the Infinity Stones together to wield ultimate power.
Gunn commented on Facebook that the third film will “conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond.” While Phase 4 hasn’t been officially announced, it’s assumed that this third film will be Marvel Studios’ kick-off movie for their next batch of films, most likely eyeing a May 2020 release.
With a third Guardians of the Galaxy film on the horizon, where could they possibly go for the next movie?
