The LEGO Group is building up to the launch of The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part with a range of new construction sets that includes a LEGO Duplo SKU for younger children, as well as LEGO System sets featuring minifigures and minidolls inspired by characters and scenes from the film.
Select sets will launch globally on December 1, with the rest of the line following on December 26. The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part sees fan-favorite characters Emmet, Lucy and Batman reunite to defeat LEGO Duplo space invaders. The film will hit the big screen worldwide in February 2019.
The LEGO Group continues to focus on content, partnering with Universal Brand Development and NBC earlier this month to roll out a LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit animated special, and recently launching fact-based educational STEM series Explained with LEGO Bricks on its LEGO Discover YouTube channel.
The company reported a 5% decline in revenue for the first half of fiscal 2018, to the tune of US$2.21 billion. Its operating profit fell 4% to US$651 million, and net profit dropped 10% to US$465 million.
