More details are coming in about The LEGO Movie 2 as we enter the last quarter of the year. Thanks to Amazon UK, we are now introduced to one of the new minifigure characters of the franchise. A new LEGO Movie 2 tie-in book entitled Little Library has just been listed via Amazon’s UK portal, and we have a first look at our new LEGO character, Rex Dangervest.
Rex joins Lucy, Emmet, Unikitty and the rest of the gang as a cool archaeologist off in a mission to save the world. Based on his rugged look, I say that he might be the film’s smart, cool guy – a sort of an alter ego for the always optimistic, but hopelessly naive Emmet Brickowski.
It will be interesting to hear a conversation between Rex and Emmet considering that both of them are voiced by none other than Chris Pratt. It’s also reasonable to assume that we will see Rex Dangervest included in one of the fifteen (15) or so LEGO Movie 2 sets said to be revealed by next year. For the record, we already have our first wave of set reveals from The LEGO Movie 2 theme which were announced just in time for the San Diego Comic Con. There’s also a LEGO Movie 2 Collectible Minifigure Series rumored to be released by February next year in line with the film, so that’s something to watch out for as well.
Here’s a quick rundown of the book’s description courtesy of Amazon UK.
