After receiving superb ratings for The Lego Movie in 2014, expectations are high for the Lego sequel.
In addition to pushing back the release date of The Lego Movie Sequel to Feb. 8, 2019, creator of BoJack Horseman Raphael Bob-Waksberg is also rewriting the script, reports Variety.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who wrote the script for the first Lego Movie, also wrote the script for The Lego Movie Sequel. The sequel will be directed by Rob Schrab and produced by Lord, Miller, Dan Lin and Roy Lee, who were all involved in producing the original Lego Movie.
Lord and Miller are currently preparing to direct the Han Solo stand-alone movie instead, so to introduce a new perspective to the series, Warner Bros. is bringing in Bob-Waksberg.
The Lego Movie Sequel is the fourth part of the Lego franchise. Before The Lego Movie Sequel is released, both The Lego Batman Movie and The Lego Ninjago Movie will premiere in 2017.
