The Justice League Comes to the Rescue in The LEGO Movie 2 Trailer
The first trailer for The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part was kind of bleak and despairing. Bricksburg was destroyed and there were super cheery alien invaders wreaking havoc. Fear not, though. All hope is not yet lost. There are still superheroes in Bricksburg, even if they don’t seem particularly super.
Our LEGO pals are not going to just stand by and let their friends be kidnapped by shapeshifting extraterrestrials. When Lucy (Elizabeth Banks) and others go missing, Emmet (Chris Pratt) calls in for backup. They arrive in the form of Batman (Will Arnett), Superman (Channing Tatum), Wonder Woman (Cobie Smulders), and Green Lantern (Jonah Hill).
One of the most fun aspects of LEGOs is that the toys have partnered with just about every major franchise including the Justice League. The LEGO Movie and the DCEU both being under the Warner Bros. umbrella created a fun mashup in the first film. It’s good to see the plastic heroes back for more.
Among the kidnapped appears to be Batman himself who is seen being carried through space by a Duplo kitty unicorn. Superman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg all suit up to save him and other LEGO buddies. Just don’t forget the Green Lantern, although almost everyone does. The oft-mocked superhero nearly gets left behind despite being, well, a lantern
Although the residents of Bricksburg appear to be in peril for much of the film, the allegory is much less fearsome. The new characters are part of a LEGO Duplo set designed for 2-5 year-olds. They belong to Finn’s (Jadon Sand) younger sister. Yet, anyone who has ever had to play nice with their sibling knows that sharing toys can feel like all-out war. Here’s hoping there will be peace and awesomeness in Bricksburg once more.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part opens in theaters February 8.
