The space is just the beginning for Emmet, Wyldstyle, Batman, Benny and Unikitty in The Lego movie 2: The second part, who has just launched his second trailer.
The film begins almost exactly five years after the first movie came out. Which, conveniently, is how much time has passed in the movie. Now, however, our heroes will have to go to another galaxy to help save their world once more. You saw a bit of that in the trailer, but now, the whole universe opens up a lot, much more.
After Wyldstyle and his friends are kidnapped by a group of Lego Duplos, led by Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi (Tiffany Haddish), it depends on Emmet (Chris Pratt) to save the day. But he will not go alone! While traveling through the cosmos, Emmet encounters a Galaxy Defender / Archaeologist / Cowboy Trainer / Raptor named Rex Dangervest, which is also voiced by Pratt, in a clear nod to many of his previous action films.
Emmet goes to the land of musicals, brilliance and uninterrupted tenderness while trying, and fails, to be "super tough" with his new best friend, Rex. This carries the risk of falling into the gender stereotypes of "traditional masculinity", but I think that will be the point. The film will focus on gender issues, specifically on how toys tend to be marketed differently to boys and girls, so the addition of Rex Dangervest (and Emmet's relationship with him) feels like a movement aware.
Stephanie Beatriz and Arturo Castro also join the cast of voices in the sequel, which also brings back Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie and Charlie Day. Directed by Mike Mitchell, The movie of Lego 2 It opens on February 8, 2019.
