Opening in theaters everywhere in less than three weeks, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part features a host of all-star cameos, but among the most surprising new additions is a mini-figure of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
"We were thinking, 'Who’s the last person you would think to see in a LEGO film as a minifig?' Ruth Bader Ginsburg!" revealed director Mike Mitchell in an interview with USA Today. "We’re all huge fans. It made us laugh to think of having her enter this world."
After securing the Supreme Court Justice's positively enthusiastic approval to appear in the film in a cameo, the filmmakers confirmed plans to create a tie-in LEGO figurine for fans to stage their own adventures with Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
"There will be a real Ruth Bader Ginsburg toy that boys and girls can play with," continued Mitchell. "It will even come with a gavel."
Directed by Mike Mitchell, The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part reunites Chris Pratt as Emmet, Elizabeth Banks as Lucy (aka Wyldstyle), Will Arnett as Batman, Nick Offerman as Metal Beard and Alison Brie as Unikitty. They're joined by Tiffany Haddish as Queen Watevra Wa-Nab, Stephanie Beatriz as Sweet Mayhem and Arturo Castro as Ice Cream Cone. The film opens on February 8, 2019.
