Three more LEGO films will hit theaters during the next three years, Warner Bros. announced Monday.
The release for The LEGO Movie Sequel has been set for May 18, 2018. Before that Ninjago will premiere on Sept. 22, 2017, while an untitled Batman LEGO movie will arrive on Feb. 10, 2017. The Lego Movie follow-up and the Batman project were both pushed up, while Ninjago was delayed from a fall 2016 opening as it remains “under construction.”
“We are very excited about dating our upcoming LEGO animated features, which already have a worldwide fan following, built on the foundation of the first film,” Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. President of Domestic Distribution, said in a statement. “These three films already in the pipeline are just the beginning of a creative and diverse animation slate that will be delighting audiences for years to come.”
Last year’s The LEGO Movie grossed more than $468 million worldwide, and garnered Grammy and Oscar nominations for its song, “Everything is AWESOME!!!”
Added LEGO Vice President of Licensing and Entertainment Jill Wilfert, “It’s truly amazing to see how the big screen lends another dimension to the rich Lego world, and offers new ways for fans to be engaged and entertained by these characters.”
