Warner Bros. have confirmed the official title of the sequel to 2014 blockbuster The LEGO Movie, as well as teasing the first poster.

In 2014, The LEGO Movie took the world by storm, earning largely positive reviews and earning $469 million on a $60 million budget. It was such a hit that Warner Bros. quickly got to work on putting together an entire LEGO cinematic universe, and last year alone saw the release of both The LEGO Batman Movie and The LEGO Ninjago Movie – though the former was a far more successful, both critically and financially, than the latter.

A sequel to The LEGO Movie has been in development since the first film’s success, but with ongoing rewrites on the script, the release date has been pushed back to 2019. However, the sequel has taken a big step forward this week, releasing the first official artwork for the project.

The official LEGO Movie Twitter account released the sequel’s logo, which also confirms that the film’s title will be The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, likely poking fun at the blockbusters that split their movies into first and second parts (e.g. Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games):

Though original writing-directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller did the most recent rewrite for The LEGO Movie 2, the pair will not be returning as directors, with Trolls Mike Mitchell taking the helm. Based on what the producers have already said of the sequel, it will pick up some time after the events of the first film, and will feature the Duplo toys that represented the little sister of the boy in The LEGO Movie. As a result, the film will deal will gender differences in these toys, making for a compellingly relevantly topic for a sequel.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is slated for released in February, 2019.
