Everything is awesome because there's a new trailer for "The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part."

But everything is not so awesome in Bricksburg. In fact, everything is bleak in the sequel, as Lucy (Elizabeth Banks) grimly notes. Of course, Emmet (Chris Pratt) is as naively upbeat as usual, but their world has turned into a "Mad Max"-like dystopian wasteland after the arrival of LEGO DUPLO invaders from outer space.

To fight back, Emmet, Lucy, and friends will have to journey to unexplored worlds and make interesting new allies. And Emmet may have to discover his inner hero.

The sequel looks like a worthy follow-up to the 2014 animated hit, with witty jokes and winking pop culture references. The voice cast includes Will Arnett, Channing Tatum, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, and Tiffany Haddish.

"The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part" opens in theaters February 9, 2019.
