‘The Lego Movie 2’ release on hold

Johannesburg : People waiting for the ‘The Lego Movie’ sequel needs to wait a bit more.

The animated follow-up to the 2014 film was expected to hit cinemas in May 2018 but Warner Bros. has decided to push back the release date by nine months meaning the eagerly-anticipated flick won’t open on the big screen until 2019, reports Channel24.

Reportedly, the film was initially expected to be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller but ‘The Mindy Project’s Rob Schrab will now take over the reins.

Although they’ve stepped down as directors, Lord and Miller are still on board to act as producers and are also co-writing the forthcoming film’s script.

‘The Lego Movie 2’ will follow on from ‘The Lego Batman Movie,’ which features the voices of Will Arnett and Mariah Carey, when the latter hits cinemas on February 10, 2017. (ANI)
