LEGO Movies Move From Warner Brothers to Universal

LEGO Movies have signed a new deal with Universal Studios securing a five-year contract. This means more movie productions of LEGO! Donna Langley of Universal Studios and  Jill Wilfert of the LEGO group signed the deal. Universal finally penned down LEGO last year and defeated other studios in the race.

The LEGO franchise

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.

The first movie from the franchise made its appearance in 2014 with The LEGO movie, followed by The LEGO Batman movie. The movies were a hit with wholesome content of humor, wit, and entertainment. But the original movies grossed about 1 billion. Furthermore, this was followed by the failure of The Ninjago Movie 2017. The Lego Movie: The Second Part‘s failed box-office effect had them thinking about switching production houses.

What can we expect in the future?

However, the contract shows great promise for new imaginative films by Universal Studios given their history of great movies. Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit and the 13-ep LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar is one of the finest examples of the same.

The company has been on the lookout for a new production studio ever since their contract with Warner Brothers expired. “Universal’s commitment to unique storytelling from diverse voices makes the Studio the perfect partner as the LEGO Group enters this new phase of filmmaking,” said Wilfert. Well, we look forward to the LEGO movies in the coming years.
