Bricksburg is in Ruins in the First The LEGO Movie 2 Trailer

As common wisdom dictates, one can never have too many Legos. The same logic applies that one can never have too many Lego movies. Emmett (Chris Pratt) and his energetic plastic pals are back for more building block adventures in the first trailer for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.

Everything was once awesome in Bricksburg, but nothing is ever built to last. An extraterrestrial threat in the form of LEGO DUPLO has turned the town into a wasteland. They big, they’re bad, and they have apparently knocked everything down. Every kid knows there’s nothing less cool than destroying an awesome Lego creation.

The double sized blocks come with some deceptively evil invaders. They may look adorable and innocent, but they seek Lego domination. Among the colorful new characters joining the sequel, Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi (Tiffany Haddish) is a standout. The shapeshifter tries to manipulate her subjects by taking the most appealing form including, of course, a rainbow unicorn. Working in the most jokes, however, is Rex Dangervest. Pratt pulls double duty voicing the suave hero who happens to be a cowboy, space explorer, and raptor trainer. Sound familiar? The irresistible hunk is a mash-up of Pratt’s most masculine roles from Guardians of the Galaxy, Jurassic World, and The Magnificent Seven.

The action looks like it will take us beyond the safety of Bricksburg into an outer universe. In all of Emmett’s earnest and wholesome goodness, he accidentally lets the bad guys in. Lucy (Elizabeth Banks) is ultimately kidnapped and the rescue mission begins. Of course, there is a bigger force behind all of this. Presumably, Finn’s (Jadon Sand) younger sister has introduced the double sized DUPLO’s as they are designed for smaller children.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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 facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than they can rebuild. The battle to defeat them 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. Reprising their starring roles from the first film are Chris Pratt as Emmet, Elizabeth Banks as Lucy (aka Wyldstyle), Will Arnett as LEGO BatmanTM, Nick Offerman as Metal Beard, and Alison Brie as Unikitty.
