'The LEGO Movie' was a huge, huge success for both Warner Bros. and LEGO (over $225 million and the highest-grossing movie of the year, so far) and both parties moved quickly to make sure 'The LEGO Movie 2' was happening. That's the good news. The bad news is that it will be happening without Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who wrote and directed the original.

How confident is Warner Bros. that 'The LEGO Movie' will be a huge hit? They're already started working on 'LEGO Movie 2'. Yep, the upcoming animated feature hasn't even graced theaters yet, but with box office predictions through the roof and nearly every review a rave, everyone realizes that they might as well strike while the iron is hot.
