BILLUND, Denmark (November 20, 2018)
– The LEGO Group today revealed an exciting collection of 16 building
sets inspired by “The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part,” the
much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office
phenomenon that started it all, “The LEGO Movie.” LEGO The LEGO Movie 2
building sets offer something for the entire family – from a LEGO DUPLO®
set for the youngest of builders, to LEGO System sets for boys, girls
and even adults – the collection leverages the entire LEGO System of
Play, featuring minifigures and minidolls, to enable fans of all ages an
opportunity to recreate the action and adventure of the film.
“LEGO bricks have both inspired and been the medium of creative storytelling around the world for more than 60 years, so it’s no surprise that there is such anticipation for the sequel to our very first LEGO theatrical film,” said Matthew James Ashton, vice president of design at The LEGO Group. “The team had a blast collaborating with filmmakers to imagine new characters, vehicles, models and scenes that showcase the power of creativity and imagination throughout the film, and we can’t wait to see what LEGO fans of all ages create as they build and re-build the film’s adventures.”
Building sets will be widely available in toy, discount merchandise and specialty stores and online channels, as well as at http://shop.LEGO.com and in LEGO Stores worldwide. The collection launches in waves, with select sets available starting December 1, with others following on December 26. Sets include:

action-packed adventure to save their beloved city. It’s been five years
since everything was awesome and the citizens are facing a huge new

everything faster than they can rebuild. The battle to defeat them and
restore harmony to the LEGO universe will take Emmet, Lucy, Batman and
their friends to faraway, unexplored worlds, including a strange galaxy
where everything is a musical. It will test their courage, creativity
and Master Building skills, and reveal just how special they really are.
