The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Trailer
If you remember in 2014, I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED "The LEGO Movie." I liked it so much more than I thought I would. I loved how clever the movie was, and how it had something very interesting to say adults strange relationship with their toys and how potentially dangerous it can be living in a world full of nostalgia. There is some discussion in certain films about how potentially damaging nostalgia can be, and I think "The LEGO Movie" did a fun, wonderful job exploring that. "The LEGO Batman" movie took some liberties making a parody about The Caped Crusader and as a life-long Batman fan, I really loved it.
I thought that maybe a second LEGO movie would be more of the same, but I am not so sure that is the case. This looks to be in a dystopian future, after Taco Tuesday. It seems like the little sister from the first movie's LEGO's began to take over. I love that this looks to be a direct sequel to the first film, and its funny that the movie is going "Mad Max" in terms of style. It looks like this is going to be a Man On A Mission movie instead of A Chosen One sequel, and I am curious to see if the team behind this movie will slyly and hilariously lambast the Man ON A Mission genre, just like they did with The Chosen One style movie.
