With The LEGO Batman Movie in cinemas later this week – you can find our review here – there’s now some news on the upcoming sequel to The LEGO Movie.

As per The Hollywood Reporter, the film, simply known as The LEGO Movie Sequel, has seen director Rob Schrab depart the project. Schrab, who was actually making his feature directorial debut with the sequel, has left over the ever-familiar creative differences.

Not wasting any time, The LEGO Movie Sequel has moved to bring in Mike Mitchell as Scrhab’s replacement. An animation veteran, Mitchell has worked on the likes of Shrek Forever After, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water and Trolls.

Phil and Christopher Miller, who wrote and helmed The LEGO Movie, penned the initial draft of The LEGO Movie Sequel, and that has more recently been re-written by BoJack Horseman’s Raphael Bob-Waksberg.

At present, The LEGO Movie Sequel is set for a February 8th, 2019 release.
