The Lego Movie 3 was a proposed sequel to The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part that would have been a future installment in The Lego Movie franchise and would have been made by Warner Bros.

Plot[]

Unknown, but set after the events of The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.

Why They Were Cancelled[]

  1. The Lego Ninjago Movie and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, (despite receiving mixed reviews for the former, and positive reviews for the latter) underperformed at the box office compared to their predecessors.
  2. Warner Bros. decided to terminate their film deal with The Lego Group in December 2019 after The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part underperformed at the box office, with Universal Pictures acquiring the film rights with Lego in April 2020.

Results[]

  • The Lego Movie 3 will most likely never see the light of day, thus making The Lego Movie and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, the two mainline Lego movies from Warner Bros., a duology.
  • The Warner Bros. era of The Lego Movie franchise came to an end in August 2020 with the series finale of Unikitty!, a short-lived spin-off TV series featuring the titular character from the franchise. However, Warner Bros. still owns the rights to their run of the franchise and they still work with Lego on making video games and some licensed direct-to-video productions.
  • Majority of the voice actors, most notably Chris Pratt, Stephanie Beatriz, Charlie Day and many more, decided to move on with other projects, such as In The Heights (2021), Hazbin Hotel (2024), and many, many more.
  • In December 2019, Universal Pictures entered early negotiations to distribute upcoming feature film properties based on the Lego toys, with Dan Lin expected to remain as producer through his company Rideback. In April 2020, the deal with Universal was set for a limited 5-year film deal with Warner Bros. still owning the original Lego Movie characters and films.
  • On August 5, 2022, in a podcast interview with The Ankler, Dan Lin revealed that a new Lego film in the series is in development, saying "We know we have to switch it up and take to a different art form that's still true to LEGO." Lin promised that the creative team had "reinvented" the LEGO world for the film, but it does not yet have a release date. On July 18, 2023, Aaron and Adam Nee were announced to be directing the film.
  • Will Ferrell reprised his role as "The Man Upstairs"/Finn and Bianca's father, who is revealed to be the CEO of Mattel, in the 2023 live-action Barbie film, which offered some closure to his character following the events of The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part (although made no mention of his wife or children Finn and Bianca). Following a number of fan theories surrounding Ferrell's role in Barbie, Christopher Miller, the co-director of The Lego Movie, confirmed on Twitter that Ferrell's role as the CEO of Mattel in Barbie had been a reprisal of "The Man Upstairs" from The Lego Movie and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, with the CEO sporting the same hairstyle and suit-and-tie combo he had worn in those two films.
    • Coincidently, Barbie was released on July 21, 2023, three days after it was announced that Aaron and Adam Nee would be directing the new Lego movie for Universal.
