Warner Bros have released a LEGO Movie 2 short to jumpstart the most awesome holiday celebration that Apocalypseburg ever had. Even after the unfortunate events of Taco Tuesday (and in spite of Lucy’s constant brooding), there will always be a reason to celebrate the season. Emmet’s Holiday Party plan is simple: bring all the townsfolk together in the townsquare, create the coolest skating rink ever (pun intended), decorate the town for the most tinseltastic holiday party ever and light up an enormous Christmas tree that can even be seen from outer space. Sounds impossible? Well, this LEGO Movie 2 short film shows that it really isn’t. Watch the clip below and see how the gang brightens up the place.
We also see a lot of familiar characters as revealed in previous trailers: we have a chest-ridden MetalBeard, Wasteland Batman, and Benny with his new mechanical arm just to name a few. As it turns out, Lucy’s fears of calling unwanted attention from the Duplon invaders were not unfounded. We see once again the character of Sweet Mayhem and Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi watching from afar, and seemingly bent to ruin the town’s festivities. But as it turns out,they just want to give their share of holiday cheers, and to add the finishing touches to the town’s largest Christmas tree. After all, like what Emmet says, everybody deserves some peace and happiness during this holiday season.
The LEGO Movie 2’s Emmet’s Holiday Party short clip also gives us a first look at Apocalypseburg Alfred and a Christmas Sweater Batman. It will be great if they turned out to be actual minifigures, and I certainly hope that LEGO will eventually release them in future TLM2 waves or sets.
But for the meantime, be sure to do your share of spreading some good holiday vibes and to watch The LEGO Movie 2 in cinemas on February 8, 2019. The LEGO Movie 2 tie-in sets are now listed at LEGOShop@Home so be sure to check these out as well.
