"Well I don’t want to give you spoilers,†Miller said, when asked about what he and Lord are hoping to explore in the sequel, “but we were really interested in what happens to that boy who’s in the meta story in the first movie when he’s four years older. When he’s an adolescent how does that change his point of view?â€

 

“Emmet, for example, was in an existential crisis of having seen another dimension and was questioning the whole point of his existence,†Miller says.

Well, that was abandoned pretty quickly.

“Emmet, for example, was in an existential crisis of having seen another dimension and was questioning the whole point of his existence,†Miller says.

Goodness, so now Emmet is coping with PTSD. To quote Batman in TLM, "Seriously?"

On a side note, my immediate reaction was to skim for mentions of Johnny Thunder.*

*alas, none yet. :(

If he was questioning why he was being watched by many people sitting in rows of seats in a dark room I would totally spend my money for this film as that Fourth Dimension magic would be enough to blow my mind.

Intriguing, it's a concept I hadn't thought to explore. So long as they keep the movie primarily LEGO I'm looking forward to it, it'd be a shame if they brought the reality side of things more and more into the main focus.

They didn't want to go into spoilers, but they did say that they're writing the second Lego Movie right now and that it will focus on Emmett and his sister in a “weird, dystopian version of Bricksburg.†The time frame is gonna be a few years after the events of the last movie as well.

Emmet and his sister.

 

Finn and his sister.

 

Finn gets older, enters his dark ages, and Bricksburg becomes dystopian.

 

Makes sense, if that's what they're going for.

But wasn't Bricksburg already dystopian, just in a rather insidious manner? The poor city doesn't get any rest, it appears (not that that's terribly surprising, unless Finn is an especially huge fan of City.)

"Toy Story 4 but with Legos"?

That's not PTSD. That's having your whole existence put into a different perspective. It could allow for a lot of lampshading and meta-humor, or it could go badly.

 

Or they could just go whole hog and make Emmet the Kwisatz Haderach :P 

. Of course that would literally make him literally "the special", which is something TLM purposefully avoided.

As others have noticed on that Twitter post, "THE SECOND PART" is not made out of Lego bricks...

The trailer was released today! Everything is not awesome since the DUPLO invasion and it looks like the plot is going to revolve around Finn's sister now being allowed to play with the LEGO town, probably grown up out of DUPLO now and is playing with with her minidoll sets.

We gots another trailer!

 

 

How do I know? While bingewatching a YTer this came up as one of the ads. :P It's the only ad in existence that I haven't either hammered Skip Ad immediately or turned the volume off.

Yes, I have an adblocker, but I turned it off for YT so I could support the three YTers I actually like to watch

 

Looking cool!

The plot seems to mostly involve invasions of some not-entirely-Duplo aliens (note 1) from OUTER SPEEEEES (note 2) that kidnap Wyldstyle (node 3) and a bunch of the Master Builders.

 

Note 1: Funny, I was expecting the villains to all be Duplo things. Maybe that's why everybody's basically living  in a post-apocalypse that Wyldstyle mentions at the start.

Note 2: Everything's better with speeeeees

Note 3: Apparently now Lucy. Emmet and Wyldstyle seem to be actually quite close. I'm hoping like mad this won't turn into a romcom :/ Com, yes, please yes, but lay off the rom.

 

EDIT: Oh and note 4, the movie is coming sometime in Feb, not sure when.

EDIT2: note not node ; I've got engineering on the brain

Hope the whole movie doesn't take place in "post-apoc land", "space", and "sister's LEGO land"; wonder what locations they aren't showing in the trailer
