LEGO Movie Franchise Picked Up by Universal

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor 

“Everything is awesome…” for Universal Studios, at least.

LEGO movies will leave the hands of Warner Bros. and land in the hands of Universal.

“Universal’s commitment to unique storytelling from diverse voices makes the Studio the perfect partner as the LEGO Group enters this new phase of filmmaking,” said Jill Wilfert of LEGO entertainment.

Warner Bros.’ contract to the rights of the LEGO movies has come and gone. Deadline reported that the deal with Universal to expand the movies will last five years.

Thus far, the LEGO movies stand at a total of four releases: THE LEGO MOVIE (2014), THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE (2017), THE LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE (2017) and THE LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART (2019).

Featured voices in the LEGO movies so far include, Chris Pratt, Will Arnett, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks and more.

Movieguide® recognized THE LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART as the Best Family Movie in 2019.

In fact, THE LEGO MOVIE 2 has a very strong Christian/biblical worldview.

Take a look at our exclusive interview with the director of THE LEGO MOVIE 2, Mike Mitchell.

Until the new movies make their debut in theaters under Universal, we’re sure that LEGO will provide countless hours of fun during the waiting period.
