In this day and age, it seems like the release of new trailers for upcoming films are awaited with the same intensity as for the movies themselves. Viewers of these trailers, who are anticipating the films, tend to want to see more details of the plot and events, sometimes without regard for potential spoiler alerts. Now, Warner Animation Group’s The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part has already gotten a few trailers out. We have a general gist of the plot (Bricksburg turning to a wasteland after the attack of the Duplons, Emmet chasing a Systar General who have kidnapped his friends), and this time the LEGO Movie 2 international trailer seems to “fill in the blanks”, as it were.
New scenes featured in the LEGO Movie 2 international trailer flashes back to the end of the first movie, where Emmet and the gang first encountered the innocent-looking Duplons. Emmet tries to make a peaceful first contact (creating the ‘Piece Offering’ we see in the same-named Emmet’s ‘Piece’ Offering polybag). Obviously, it fails and we get to see its result later on.
Other scenes that elaborate on the storyline include fight sequences during the Duplon invasion of Bricksburg, plus Emmet asking Rex Dangervest to “teach him how to be tough”. Good luck, Emmet.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part stars Chris Pratt (Emmet and Rex), Elizabeth Banks (Wyldstyle), Will Arnett (LEGO Batman), Stephanie Beatriz (Sweet Mayhem) and Tiffany Haddish (Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi). It premieres February 8, 2019.
