According to the website Deadline Hollywood, the new movie — which has made some $363 million worldwide (on a reported $60 million production budget) — will be directed by Chris McKay, the guy who served as animation co-director on the first film, which was co-directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Lord and Miller are writing the sequel's treatment.
You may be familiar with McKay's work if, that is, you've ever watched "Robot Chicken" on the Cartoon Network. He's apparently directed more than 40 episodes of that adult-comedy series.
Everything truly is awesome — at least in Legoland.
