‘The Lego Movie Sequel’ Gets Rewrite From ‘BoJack Horseman’ Creator

- Advertisement -

The Lego Movie Sequel just got a little more awesome. Raphael Bob-Waksberg, the comedian best known for creating Netflix’s sensationally good BoJack Horseman, will lend his talents to the upcoming animated sequel, rewriting the 2019 release. There’s no word yet on how much soul-crushing anguish he’ll add to the film.

Variety got the exclusive on the update. Bob-Waksberg will work from a draft previously written by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the filmmakers behind the original 2014 film. They’re busy at the moment with a little Han Solo spin-off for Disney, so Warner Bros. decided to hand writing duties onto the man with one of the best animated comedies made today. Miller and Lord will still produce alongside returning producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee.

The Lego Movie Sequel is the first movie Bob-Waksberg will co-write since creating his acclaimed series. However, he also previously worked on 2012’s under-appreciated The Exquisite Corpse Project with his comedy trope, Olde English Comedy. The third season of BoJack Horseman is set to premiere on July 22 on the streaming site. Bob-Waksberg also recently sold his first short story collection, Someone Who Will Love You in All Your Damaged Glory: Bang-Your-Knee, Bust-Your-Heart-Open Love Stories. There’s no word yet on when that’ll hit shelves.

The Lego Movie Sequel will be the fourth animated Lego movie released by Warner Bros. They also have The Lego Batman Movie and The Lego Ninjago Movie set to hit theaters on February and September of next year, respectively.
