"The Lego Movie" was no slouch in terms of cool female characters, but writers Phil Lord and Chris Miller are planning to give the sequel even more of a girl-friendly vibe.

Stop now if you haven't seen the first "Lego" flick! Seriously, stop, go watch it, then come back and read the rest of this.

Okay, welcome back. Lord and Miller sat down with the BBC to talk about their empire of awesomeness and had some interesting things to stay about what they have planned for the sequel. Although they only have a plot outline, they're taking cues from "Frozen," "Brave," and other popular femme-centric animated films.

"It's important to us that the movie plays broadly and that we inspire young women as much as we inspire young men," Lord said, later adding, "You can feel that the whole movie culture is now starting to wake up to the fact that half the audience are women. 'Frozen' is reflective of that - and I think we are all going to find a great flourishing of women film makers and subject matter in the future."

Miller didn't divulge too much about what they have in mind, but he did say that "there will be more female characters and more female stuff" in the sequel.

"The Lego Movie" was a hit with fans across the board, regardless of age and gender, but it's great to see two of the most creative minds in the business make a concerted effort to appeal to a female audience. And given how much dough "Frozen" has raked in, it's also financially savvy.
