LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - After becoming the top-grossing movie released in 2014 so far, The Lego Movie will be reassembling for a sequel scheduled for May 26, 2017, movie studio Warner Bros said on Friday.

The Lego Movie, voiced by an all-star cast including Will Ferrell, Will Arnett and Elizabeth Banks, opened with US$69.1 million (S$87.6 million) in its first weekend earlier this month and is expected to top the box office for a third consecutive time this week.

So far, the film has grossed more than US$150 million in US and Canadian ticket sales. No further details on the sequel were given.

The computer-animated Lego Movie brought to life a universe made entirely from Lego's interconnecting construction blocks, as plastic characters including Batman, a pirate and an astronaut come together to save their world from being permanently glued together.
