This is the first news that a sequel to The LEGO Batman Movie is in development. So far, the slate that follows The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is unknown – The Billion Brick Race was expected to follow, but after going through a few directors, that project seems to have been quietly shelved.

McKay is also attached to direct a Nightwing live action movie for Warner Bros. Brick Fanatics spoke to the filmmaker in an exclusive interview back when The LEGO Batman Movie was released last year.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part will be released in February 2019.
