Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Alison Brie, Charlie Day and more team up to save their Lego world from peril.

Five years after the 2014 box-office hit The Lego Movie, Chris Pratt and Elizabeth Banks are back for another adventure in The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.

Emmet (Pratt) and Lucy (Banks) are joined by more characters from the first film including Unikitty (Alison Brie), Benny (Charlie Day), Batman (Will Arnett) and Green Lantern (Jonah Hill).  Newcomers include Tiffany Haddish and Stephanie Beatriz.

After the downfall of the tyrannic President Business (Will Ferrell), a ruthless new threat arises to the city of Bricksburg — LEGO DUPLO® invaders from outer space. It is up to Emmet and the rest of the Lego crew to defeat the intergalactic invaders.

He is also voicing the character Rex Dangervest, who was inspired by Pratt's role in the Jurassic World and Avengers movies. He recently got engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger, and will soon be starring in Jurassic World 3.
