The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part – Budget Unknown – 1 hour and 46 minutes
Emmet tried to make peace with the aliens from the Systar System. But every time something new or shiny appears in Bricksburg, the aliens destroy it. Five years later, Bricksburg is now Apocalypseburg. Everyone’s spirits are down and they have become hardened. Except for Emmet. Lucy tells him he must change and stop pretending that everything is awesome. His spirits maybe up but he had a horrible dream. He dreamt that at 5:15 the abyss of StoreAge would take all his friends into a dark hole. Lucy worries his dream is a premonition. He has built a small home on the outskirts of Apocalypseburg for him and Lucy. It’s not long before the aliens find it and destroy it. They run to safety in the Batcave but a star’s cries implore Emmet to save it. Emmet obliges, opens the Batcave, and lets in General Sweet Mayhem. Mayhem invites everyone to a wedding ceremony at 5:15 for Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi and Batman (without his consent). Lucy gives a sound ‘NO’ with a kick but Mayhem kidnaps Lucy, Batman, Princess Unikitty, and Benny. Lucy believes this is the start of Emmet’s premonition. After seeing his friends being taken away, Emmet flies to the space unknown called Upstairs galaxy. Emmet flies off course and is saved by Rex, the space cowboy archeologist raptor trainer. He will fly Emmet to the Systar system and help save Emmet’s friends. In order to save his friends, Rex knows he must teach Emmet to become a Master Breaker.
