Batman Lego Movie, ‘Lego’ Sequel Get Release Dates

Warner Bros. has set the release dates for the next three “Lego” films through 2018, with the first an untitled Batman Lego movie that will bow on Feb. 10, 2017.

Warners has also moved the Lego spinoff “Ninjago” from fall 2016 to Sept. 22, 2017, and dated “The Lego Movie Sequel” for May 18, 2018.

“We are very excited about dating our upcoming Lego animated features, which already have a worldwide fan following, built on the foundation of the first film,” said Dan Fellman, president of domestic distribution at Warner Bros. “These three films already in the pipeline are just the beginning of a creative and diverse animation slate that will be delighting audiences for years to come.”

Last October, Warner Bros. chairman-CEO Kevin Tsujihara unveiled a slate that included 10 DC pics, three “Harry Potter” spinoffs and a slew of “Lego” features and made it clear that these franchises would play a major role in Warner Bros.’ model for the next half decade.

“The Lego Movie,” released last year, was a hit both critically and commercially, grossing $468 million worldwide.
