‘The Lego Movie 2’ Cant Capture The Surprising Magic Of The First Movie Warner Bros. Remember way back when the original The Lego Movie was announced? People were skeptical! Phil Lord and Chris Miller did had some goodwill built up between Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, but, mostly, people just assumed there’s no possible way a movie about LEGOs could be good. Looking back, The Lego Movie just may have been a miracle – the perfect storm of everything and everyone coming together at the right time to make something glorious. I adore that movie. Now, it kind of feels like something that just can’t be recreated.
