May 21st, 2014 by Marc Comments

No-one can argue that The LEGO Movie was a massive success this year and the announcement of a sequel wasn’t really a shock, however, this is… interesting news.

It seems that, while The LEGO Movie 2 is still waiting for a release date to be penned in, Warners and LEGO are keen to create a LEGO movie universe – sort of like what Disney are doing with Marvel. only squarer.

The next movie to be released under the LEGO banner will be Ninjago on September 23rd, 2016.

According to Darkhorizons, “Charlie Bean (“Tron: Uprising”) will make his feature directorial debut on the film which “The LEGO Movie” writer-directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will produce alongside Dan Lin and Roy Lee.2

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
