The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is a 2019 computer-animated comedy film produced by the Warner Animation Group and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. Directed by Mike Mitchell, it is a sequel to The Lego Movie (2014), the fourth film in the franchise following the releases of 2017's The Lego Batman Movie and The Lego Ninjago Movie. The film stars Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Charlie Day, Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, and Will Ferrell reprising their roles from the previous film, while new cast members include Stephanie Beatriz, Tiffany Haddish, and Maya Rudolph. In the film, Emmet Brickowski attempts to rescue his friends from the Systar System, while dealing with a coming cataclysm known as "Armamageddon".

Plans for a sequel began in 2014 and was announced to be in the works on February 3, 2014. It was announced a few months later that the film was being directed by Chris McKay while Phil Lord and Christopher Miller remained as writers and producers. The film since underwent many changes, such as rewrites, directors, and release dates.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part was released in the United States and United Kingdom on February 8, 2019, in 3D, RealD 3D, Dolby Cinema, IMAX, IMAX 3D, and 4DX formats. It received generally positive reviews from critics, who commended its humor, animation, soundtrack, and voice acting, although some said it was not as "fresh" as the first film. Despite grossing $192 million worldwide against a budget of $99 million, the film became the franchise's second box office disappointment after The Lego Ninjago Movie. As a result of this, Warner Bros. sold the film rights of The Lego Movie franchise to Universal Pictures, which was later set for a five-year deal.
