It was announced a few weeks back that a sequel to The Lego Movie will hit theaters on May 26, 2017. The Lego Movie received overwhelming success, popularity, and positive reviews after the initial release this past February and it's all been uphill since then.
We now have confirmation that the sequel will be directed by Chris McKay. He served as animation co-director for the first film. Directors/writers Chris Miller and Phil Lord will only return as producers for the sequel while Michelle Morgan and Jared Stern will take over the screenwriting. It is unclear whether the next one will follow the same characters and plot line or if it will just expand the popular "Ninjago" Lego universe.
McKay has worked on animated shows such as Robot Chicken and Titan Maximum and directed the Robot Chicken Star Wars: Episode III special. He will make his feature film directorial debut with The Lego Movie 2.
