Everything is about to be very, very awesome once again.
The LEGO Movie was perhaps one of the biggest surprises of 2014, the movie becoming an instant fan-favorite that was both a commercial and critical success. It's no wonder then that a sequel was eventually confirmed -- and here we are now four years later, and a new trailer for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is only a day away.
The confirmation that a new trailer will drop tomorrow, Nov. 20 comes courtesy of actor Will Arnett, who famously voices the LEGO version of Batman. On his Twitter account, Arnett shared a new poster for The Lego Movie 2, giving us a first look at the returning Dark Knight in what appears to be a new, rather bulky, costume.
"Swapped the batarang for the tires," Arnett wrote in the post's caption, referring to Batman's new tire-shaped shoulder pads.
After becoming a standout in The LEGO Movie, the LEGO version of Batman became the star of his very own movie in 2017's The LEGO Batman Movie. Now, the character will once again leave the crime-ridden streets of Gotham City behind to lend a helping hand to Chris Pratt's Emmet and Elizabeth Banks' Lucy. This time, the merry band of LEGO characters will take on the might of an invading alien force.
Here is the full synopsis of The LEGO Movie 2:
"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 facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than they can rebuild. The battle to defeat them and restore harmony to the LEGO universe will take Emmet, Lucy, Batman 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."
