Chris Pratt Makes Fun of ‘Jurassic World’ in the New ‘LEGO Movie 2’ Trailer
Master Builder Emmet might not get the joke, but we sure do. When he encounters the galaxy-defending archaeologist and raptor trainer Rex Dangervest, it’s a fun poke at Emmet voice actor Chris Pratt’s other famous movie roles, including Star-Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy and the raptor-loving preservationist from the Jurassic World movies. (I don’t remember that character’s name. Owen Something? Maybe his last name is Dangervest too.)
That’s just the sort of meta humor we’ve come to expect from these LEGO Movies. The first direct sequel to the hilarious and inventive LEGO Movie — following the spinoffs The LEGO Batman Movie and The LEGO Ninjago Movie — takes Emmet and Lucy (Elizabeth Banks) into outer space. Here’s the full official synopsis:
The much-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed, global box office phenomenon that started it all, “The LEGO® Movie 2: The Second Part,” reunites the heroes of Bricksburg in an all new action-packed adventure to save their beloved city. It’s been five years since everything was awesome and the citizens are facing a huge new threat: LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space, wrecking everything faster than they can rebuild. The battle to defeat them and restore harmony to the LEGO universe will take Emmet, Lucy, Batman and their friends to faraway, unexplored worlds, including a strange galaxy where everything is a musical. It will test their courage, creativity and Master Building skills, and reveal just how special they really are.
The LEGO Movie 2 opens in theaters on February 8, 2019.
