NEW ON DVD AND BLU-RAY
Everything is not so awesome in the sequel to the 2014 animated hit. In fact, everything is bleak in the sequel. 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 (Elizabeth Banks) and friends will have to journey to unexplored worlds and make interesting new allies. And Emmet may have to discover his inner hero.
