This may not sound like awesome news.

Variety.com recently reported that Warner Bros. have decidedly rearranged the release dates of some of its upcoming films, including the sequel The LEGO Movie 2. Originally slated for a May, 2018 release the follow-up to the multi-million success film was pushed for another year to have an adjusted summer release date of February 8, 2019 adopting the same opening weekend as that of the first LEGO movie back in 2014.

The good thing though, is that two LEGO-inspired films seem to be right on schedule as their release dates for next year remain unchanged: the LEGO Batman movie is expected to hit theaters on February 10, 2017 while the LEGO Ninjago movie is slated on September 17, 2017. That’s two LEGO theatrical releases to expect next year.

If you recall, the LEGO Movie was a pleasantly surprising success, with an opening weekend gross of $69 million domestically, trailblazing to bring home the bacon earning a total gross of $470 million worldwide. Its success spurred similarly themed theatrical films such as  the LEGO Batman movie, LEGO Ninjago, and a fourth movie that we scantly know about, The Billion Brick Race which is co-written and co-directed by Jason Segel and Drew Pearce with an originally announced release date of May 24, 2019. However, this may likely be pushed back as well given the adjustment that was done on the LEGO Movie 2.
