Lego Batman steals the show in The LEGO Movie

'Trolls' Director Mike Mitchell Takes the Helm on 'The LEGO Movie Sequel'

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell Warner Bros. has a full blown LEGO universe on their hands. The LEGO Movie made a huge splash back in 2014, though we won't get the sequel until 2019. That's only because the studio has fast-tracked two other LEGO-built films, one the upcoming Batman picture, the other Ninjago.

The latest on The LEGO Movie Sequel is that it's had a change of director, with Rob Schrab being replaced by Mike Mitchell, who helmed Trolls most recently and may bring the comedic element that we can all expect from the new film. While last summer, Raphael Bob-Waksberg was reportedly rewriting the script, with the latest bout of news comes confirmation that Matt Fogel (Big Mommas) has penned the most recent draft.

Mitchell's experience in animation beyond Trolls is Shrek Foever After, while he's also done work with family-friendly films such as Chipmunks: Chipwrecked and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water. That, compared with the outgoing director, which Schrab's resume boasting of work on The Mindy Project, Parks and Recreation, Community, not to mention The LEGO Movie 4D, an attraction for LEGOLAND.

Original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller penned the first draft, and are still producing, so things aren't looking terrible, but they are a little ambiguous. Let's wait and see what comes of all this.
