The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is ringing in the holidays with a special short film, “Emmet’s Holiday Party.” The two and a half minute short shows that not even living in Apocalypseburg can get the always optimistic Emmet down. Lucy, however, is still all broody and prepared for the worst case scenario to unfold in any given situation.
Emmet wants to spread a little joy among the Apocalypseburg residents by throwing a gigantic holiday party, complete with a huge Christmas tree that can be seen from space. Of course, the massive tree and its lights draw the attention of unwanted visitors from outer space. Fortunately, they’re only paying the little town a visit to add a star to the top of the tree.
The holiday short ends with a chorus of “Everything is Awesome” breaking out as happy skaters circle an ice rink. The only citizen not in a joyous mood turns out to be Batman who’s depressed his sweater only has eight abs.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part features the voices of Chris Pratt as Emmet (as well as Rex Dangervest), Elizabeth Banks as Lucy (aka Wyldstyle), Will Arnett as LEGO Batman, Charlie Day as Benny, Alison Brie as Unikitty, and Nick Offerman as Metal Beard. New voice cast members include Tiffany Haddish as Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi, Stephanie Beatriz as Sweet Mayhem, Arturo Castro as Ice Cream Cone, and Maya Rudolph.
Mike Mitchell directed from a screenplay by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, Roy Lee, and Jinko Gotoh produced, with Jill Wilfert, Keith Malone, Matthew Ashton, Chris McKay, Zareh Nalbandian, Ryan Halprin, Will Allegra, and Chris Leahy executive producing.
Warner Bros Pictures will release the animated sequel in theaters on February 8, 2019 in 2D and 3D.
The much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office phenomenon that started it all, The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part, reunites the heroes of Bricksburg in an all new action-packed adventure to save their beloved city. It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are now facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than it can be rebuilt.
The battle to defeat the invaders and restore harmony to the LEGO universe will take Emmet (Pratt), Lucy (Banks), Batman (Arnett) and their friends to faraway, unexplored worlds, including a strange galaxy where everything is a musical. It will test their courage, creativity and Master Building skills, and reveal just how special they really are.
