Before Chris Pratt was Star-Lord in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, he was the Lego Movie's lovable lead, Emmet. Pratt will be returning as the character for the sequel, and he talks how tricky it was to make Lego Movie 2 seeing that they broke the fourth wall by the end of the first movie.

In an interview with io9, Pratt says:

"The first movie is a very difficult movie to create a sequel to because, as all the best movies do, it paints itself into a corner. Especially by tearing down the fourth wall in the final act. That's a major jump, so they've got some really awesome ideas on how to deal with that and I can't wait for people to see it."

Original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller won't be returning to helm the movie — what with them directing the Han Solo spinoff for Lucasfilm — but they did provide the script for the sequel, with rewrites coming from Bojack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg.

On the director's chair will be Mike Mitchell, who directed movies like Sky High, Shrek Forever After, and The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.

With such solid people behind the story, I'm sure Mitchell could make this Lego Movie sequel just as fun as the first one. Let's also not forget the charisma and magnetism that Chris Pratt brings to his roles.

Chris Pratt will be starring in Guardias of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which comes out May 5, but The Lego Movie 2 is set to release on Feb. 8, 2019.
