The First Lego Movie Sequel Will Be Even More Meta

Illustration for article titled The First Lego Movie Sequel Will Be Even More Meta

2014’s hit film, The Lego Movie, was destined for sequels. And those will be coming in a few years. But next year in January, you can see Wildstyle, Unikitty, MetalBeard and Benny on the big screen–exclusively at Legolands everywhere.

Those characters are returning for a new film called The Lego Movie 4D: A New Adventure, debuting January 29, 2016 at Legoland Florida. It will open February 6 at Legoland California, and then go to the other locations later in the year.

The new movie is co-written and directed by Rob Schrab, who is doing the real Lego Movie Sequel in 2018. It’s described as follows:

The Lego Movie 4D: A New Adventure follows a new journey for Emmet, Wyldstyle, Unikitty, Benny and MetalBeard after they receive a mysterious invitation leading them to a new theme park where all of the rides are based on the characters’ adventures in “The LEGO Movie.” But not all is as it seems as the heroes are once again thrust into the middle of an evil secret plot, only this time, it will be up to the audience to use their Master Builder skills to help save them! Using elements such as wind, water, smoke and special lighting effects, the larger-than-life experience brings the film’s main characters, Emmet and Wyldstyle, back together with their friends for another awesome adventure.


Oddly enough, while the news mentions returning voice talent like Elizabeth Banks, Alison Brie, Nick Offerman and Charlie Day, along with a new character named Risky Business voiced by Patton Oswalt, there’s no mention of Chris Pratt.

Still, this seems like a nice appetizer as we wait for Ninjago later in 2016, The Lego Batman Movie in 2017 and finally The Lego Movie Sequel in 2018.
