Warner Bros, The LEGO Movie, was such a huge hit that the studio moved forward with spinoff films and a sequel. Since the film’s release, three spinoff films have been announced; the first will focus on Batman’s character; the second will center on Ninjago; the third and most recently announced one will be written by Jason Segel and Drew Pearce.
