Blocks magazine talks to the key creatives behind The LEGO Movie 2 to get the inside scoop on the animated film, while taking a look at the sets it inspired.

With The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part playing in cinemas, Blocks magazine speaks to Director Mike Mitchell and Co-Director Trisha Gum, as well as other key storytellers who worked on the much-anticipated sequel.

Illustrated with exclusive concept art and behind-the-scenes images, this deep-dive looks at how the film was developed, why the core relationship was so important and how the new worlds were conceived.

To celebrate the creativity the new animated feature inspires, Blocks presents a unique version of Emmet and Lucy’s Escape Buggy with full instructions. That is not the only build this month, as the final theme park ride in Steve Guinness’s pirate themed series is presented.

As well as a review of the movie itself, all of the key sets in The LEGO Movie 2 theme get an in-depth Blocks review – from 70840 Welcome to Apocalypseburg! to 70841 Benny’s Space Squad. Brickpicker considers whether the sets are worth investing in, for those who are considering buying extras.

That is far from everything in the magazine this month, with Family Tree taking a look back at the LEGO Star Wars theme, Top Ten counting down LEGO dragons and Technique demonstrating how to build realistic insects. Regular features include Month in LEGO, Month in MOCs, Piece Perception – and most importantly, the return of Brick Wife.
