The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is the sequel to 2014's The LEGO Movie - but does it have a post-credits scene setting up another movie in Warner Bros' LEGO franchise? The first film was such a success for Warner Bros. that the studio quickly greenlit a whole slate of LEGO films. Spinoffs The LEGO Batman Movie and The LEGO Ninjago Movie have already hit theaters, while The LEGO Movie 2 is the latest installment in the series. Another spinoff, Billion Brick Race, was greenlit but doesn't yet have a release date and the film lost its director last year.
Though the larger franchise has had its hits - with The LEGO Batman Movie especially - fans were no doubt most looking forward to The LEGO Movie 2. The film sees original writer-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller return to pen the screenplay, though Mike Mitchell takes over directing duties. Reviews for The LEGO Movie 2 have been largely positive, so the film could potentially be as successful as its predecessor, even if early box office projections aren't quite so positive.
Now that The LEGO Movie 2 is hitting theaters around the world, fans heading out to see it may be wondering whether it has any extra scenes or stingers at the end of the credits. The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part does NOT have a post-credits scene, but it does have a credits sequence that's absolutely worth watching. While it's always worth watching the credits of a movie to see who's involved in the making of that film, The LEGO Movie 2 has a particularly fun credits sequence.
Without spoiling The LEGO Movie 2 credits, there's a new song by The Lonely Island, Beck and Robyn called "Super Cool" that works as a perfect followup to "Everything is Awesome!!!" from The LEGO Movie. Plus, the sequence includes plenty of visual gags that fans of both films will find funny - including one poking fun at Will Ferrell's role in the sequel. So The LEGO Movie 2 may not have a standard post-credits scene, but the movie's credits sequence is a bit of added fun for those who want even more LEGO Movie-style jokes.
As for whether the credits set up a sequel, they don't. But that doesn't necessarily mean Warner Bros. is done making LEGO franchise films. As previously stated, Billion Brick Race is still in development, and given the critical and financial success of The LEGO Batman Movie, it would be surprising if the studio didn't at least consider making a sequel. Further, depending on how The LEGO Movie 2 does in terms of box office, the studio may also pursue a third film in the series. However, what exactly Warner Bros. plans to do with its LEGO franchise remains to be seen.
For now, all moviegoers checking out The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part need to know is that it doesn't have a post-credits scene, but it does have a credits sequence worth sticking around to watch.
