Everything is not awesome for Lego Movie fans.

The sequel to the 2014 animated blockbuster has been pushed back nine months and will now hit theaters Feb. 8, 2019, Warner Bros. announced Friday. The Lego Movie 2 had originally been slated to open May 18, 2018.

Fortunately for Lego fans, the studio still has the spinoffs Lego Batman and Ninjago opening in 2017.

In addition to Lego Movie 2, WB also delayed the release of the Gerard Butler-starring disaster film Geostorm by nine months. It will now open Oct. 20, 2017, instead of Jan. 13, 2017.

Swapping dates with Geostorm, and therefore arriving much earlier than anticipated, is Live by Night, writer-director-star Ben Affleck’s adaptation of the Prohibition-era crime novel by Dennis Lehane.

Finally, Warner Bros. bumped back the comedy Bastards, starring Ed Helms and Owen Wilson, by a few months. It will open Jan. 27, 2017, rather than Nov. 4, 2016.
