THE LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART Gets An Underwhelming Teaser Trailer

This does not bode well.

The first LEGO Movie came along and shook the world for how surprisingly good it was, a level of quality we should have expected given the involvement of Lord & Miller, two guys known for making greatness out of bad ideas (like Han Solo prequels).

Then The LEGO Batman Movie came along and might have been even better from a pure comedy standpoint, something I also didn’t expect as Lord & Miller weren’t as involved.

And now we have a teaser trailer for The LEGO Movie sequel. The surprise this time is that it looks unfunny and even a little obnoxious:

Maybe the focus on plot here means better jokes are still to come. Or maybe the February release date means those jokes have yet to be written. But right now I’m just not feeling very positive about this one.

What do you guys think? Am I just a grump who has lost touch with my younger self? Should I focus my attention on starting a “Give LEGO Movies to Zack Snyder” petition because clearly that’s all I want? Sound off in the comments below!
