It’s suppose to be raining all week and going into the weekend so I decided to plan a movie night for the girls. LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part was at the top of my list to watch them. I had heard so many great things about it and knew they would love it! The below was provided to me to help facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and honest.

About LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part
The heroes of Bricksburg are back in an epic action-packed adventure to save their beloved city! It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are now facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than it can be rebuilt. The battle to defeat the invaders and restore harmony to the LEGO universe will take Emmet (Chris Pratt), Lucy (Elizabeth Banks), Batman (Will Arnett) and their new friends to faraway, unexplored worlds, including a strange galaxy where everything is a musical. It will test their courage, creativity and Master Building skills, and may just reveal how special they really are.
The movie continues right where the last one left off, with conflict erupting with the citizens of Bricksburg, who are under constant threat from Duplo and soon, a mysterious visitor from the Systar system. Firstly, the movie is absolutely hilarious and travels at a quick pace. The movie flings references at you at high speed, hitting you with everything from classic movie nods, 80s nostalgia, tons of LEGO references! What sets this movie apart from the other lego movie is the number of risks it takes. The plot goes places that I completely thought it would. My girls LOVED the music. It was not a let down from the first movie Everything is Awesome. Over all this movie is great! It’s funny, has new songs, great graphics, new lovable characters and a tight, fast-moving plot that doesn’t try to talk down or dumb down its narrative for the viewer.
You can purchase LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part on Amazon for Blu-Ray for $29.99 or DVD for $17.99.
