Back in 2014, Warner Brother Pictures released the critically acclaimed animated feature The Lego Movie. Met with overwhelmingly positive audience reactions, and almost $500 million in total global revenue, it was only a matter of time before the studio decided to release the next chapter in the Lego Universe. While many had expected a direct sequel to the 2014 hit, it appears that Warner Brothers has decided to create a spin-off focusing entirely on one of The Lego Movie‘s most popular characters, Lego Batman himself.
The Lego Batman Movie stars Will Arnett as titular character Batman. Set in the city of Gotham, Batman has always been a one many army in protecting his city. However, with the Joker (voiced by Zach Galifianakis) plotting a hostile takeover, Batman just might have to learn to work with other superheroes, if he wishes to save Gotham from his least favorite clown’s clutches.
The Lego Batman Movie is currently set to release on February 10, 2017. Be sure to watch the teaser trailer below and let us know if you’re excited to see Lego return to the silver screen.
