Lego Movie 2 to Have More Female Characters.

November 17th, 2014 by Todd Black Comments

If you paid attention, there were only a few female characters in Lego Movie. Many of which did not have lines. In fact, the only four I can think of who did talk is Wildstyle, Good Cop/Bad Cop’s mom, the cat, and one of the construction workers. Well, if the directors are anything to go by, there’s going to be a lot more in Lego Movie 2.

“It’s important to us that the movie plays broadly and that we inspire young women as much as we inspire young men… There’s been a real shortage of [female protagonists] in recent years, and I think that the near future will be very different.

You can feel that the whole movie culture is now starting to wake up to the fact that half the audience are women. Frozen is reflective of that – and I think we are all going to find a great flourishing of women film makers and subject matter in the future.”

Now, if you’re wondering who might show up…they don’t know. No, seriously, they don’t know.

“You would think there would be be more pieces in place but all we’ve written is ‘Fade In’…”

I’m sure we’ll get some more info soon as the script unfolds. In the meantime, who do you think should have a big role in the sequel?
