New Delhi, Jan 23 (IANS) Chris Pratt’s “The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part” will release in India on February 8.
Warner Bros. Pictures is bringing the film to India. It will also release in IMAX, read a statement.
A standalone adventure, the film builds on the existing narrative from the original “The Lego Movie”.
The film reunites the eclectic gang of Lego, the heroes of Bricksburg, to save their city.
In the movie, Pratt is returning to voice Master Builder Emmet Brickowski along with new character Rex Dangervest. The unfailingly optimistic Emmet has been searching the galaxy for Lucy (voiced by Elizabeth Banks) after her abduction by a malevolent, alien force.
Tiffany Haddish is voicing the shapeshifting Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi along with Will Arnett as Batman, Channing Tatum as Superman, Jonah Hill as Green Lantern, and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Stephanie Beatriz as Sweet Mayhem.
The battle to defeat the invaders and restore harmony to the Lego universe will take Emmet, Lucy, Batman and their friends to faraway, unexplored worlds, including a strange galaxy. It will test their courage, creativity and building skills.
On the sequel, director Mike Mitchell said: “There is a lot of crazy action and one of a kind characters, and the same irreverent, out of bounds comedy.
“Emmet sets off with courage and total commitment but not any real idea where he’s going. It’s everything you loved about the first movie and more.”
To this, Pratt added: “There are themes about coming together and working together that are really relevant. There’s also a through line about not losing that childlike sense of wonder and the willingness to use your imagination.”
