Joining Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Alison Brie and Will Arnett will be Stephanie Beatriz, Will Arturo and Tiffany Haddish voicing new Lego characters.

"The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part" is set to be in cinemas next February.  Take a look at the first teaser trailer right here and let us know what you think in the comments!
