The LEGO Movie Franchise Plans: Revealed in Full!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Earlier today Warner Bros. and DC announced plans for their superhero movies through 2020, including solo Wonder Woman, The Flash and Aquaman movies. And they’re not done with the announcements. Now we have a clearer picture of what to expect from the follow-ups to The LEGO Movie.

The LEGO Movie Chris Pratt Is Emmet

Charlie Bean will direct The LEGO Movie: Ninjago, arriving in 2016, which will be produced by the original movie’s directors, Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

Then in 2017, the Chris McKay-directed (he was the art director on The LEGO Movie) The LEGO Batman Movie will land in 2017, with the true sequel to The LEGO Movie, The LEGO Movie 2, arriving in 2018.

Given that The LEGO Movie banked over $468 million on a $60 million investment, it’s hardly a surprise that Warner Bros. has turned this thing into a franchise. And given how much people have a passion and seem to think that Everything is Awesome in the LEGO world, it seems a no-brainer that they would give us more.

But, what is surprising is how much they are looking past just a simple sequel and seeking to expand the LEGO movie world, almost exponentially. We here at Movie Fanatic, for one, could not be more excited.

While we wait for more LEGO brilliance, watch The LEGO Movie online and check out our favorite quotes from the flick in the slideshow below!
