The Lego Movie sequel in the works

The Lego Movie is about to release in theaters this Friday, and it looks awesome. Combining all of the best Lego worlds, playsets and characters, it's going to be a sure hit with kids and adults alike. We've got police officers, pirates, 80s astronaut, Batman, the wild west and more, all combined for an awesome adventure. 

So, obviously, a sequel is already in the works. Warner Bros. has hired Jared Stern (The Internship and Mr. Popper's Penguins) and Michelle Morgan (Girl Most Likely) to work on the script for the planned sequel. There's no word if Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will return to direct, or if any of the voice talent will as well, but our guess is that they will. 

The Lego Movie's official synopsis is: An ordinary guy named Emmet (Chris Pratt) is mistaken as being the Master Builder, the one who can save the universe. With the aid of an old mystic Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman), a tough young lady named Lucy (Elizabeth Banks), and Batman (Will Arnett), Emmet will fight to defeat the evil tyrant Lord Business (Will Ferrell) who is bent on destroying the universe by gluing it together.
