Get ready for everything to be awesome ... again! Ahead of the debut Tuesday of the first trailer, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part has released the film's first poster.
As teased in the final scene of 2014's The LEGO Movie, the poster shows a Duplo alien approaching returning characters Emmet, Wyldstyle, Batman, Unikitty, Benny and Metalbeard. The returning cast seems wary of this extraterrestrial visitor, with Batman, Unikitty and Metalbeard sporting armored outfits while a ruined Statue of Liberty -- straight from 1968's original Planet of the Apes -- looms in the reflection of the alien's visor.

Originally scheduled to arrive this summer, the sequel's release date was delayed after director Rob Schrab (Community) was replaced by Mike Mitchell (Trolls). Additionally, the original script by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, who wrote and directed the 2014 film, was rewritten by BoJack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg. Miller and Lord are still credited as co-writers for the sequel, which they also co-produced
