The LEGO Movie 2 Is Gonna Be A Musical

01 March 2017

The first Lego Movie wasn't a musical by any stretch of the imagination, but producer Chris McKay says the sequel will most certainly be.

Fans who saw the first Lego movie will still remember "Everything is Awesome" after seeing the movie just once, and even the Lego Batman movie had its own catchy song with "Who's the (Bat) Man". Before that, moviegoers will see The LEGO NINJAGO Movie released in September this year.

That's according to Lego Movie Sequel director Chris McKay in a recent podcast interview for Shanilan On Batman.

McKay was replaced as director by Rob Schrab, but he later left the project over the old "creative differences". There was a lot of assembly required, though: "They need a lot of the writing, a lot of development, not only with script development, but development with songwriters".
