Last month, we reported that the studio was mulling over whether or not to make The Lego Movie 2 or Lego Ninjago first. The studio is still considering plans for a Lego Ninjago movie, but nothing has been set in stone yet. Chris McKay has signed onto direct a straight sequel at this time. We reported last month that this sequel was moving forward with a script by Jared Stern (The Internship) and Michelle Morgan (Nancy Drew), with Warner Bros. setting a May 26, 2017 release date. The Lego Movie has made over $360 million worldwide since its release on February 7.
