After Universal had gotten themselves in the lead for the film rights to future LEGO movies, they appear to have gotten the job done. According to Deadline, Universal Pictures has gotten a five-year deal with LEGO that will have them developing and distributing upcoming LEGO movies. This includes all film rights for theatrically released films.

The LEGO films have grossed a combined $1.1 billion dollars globally ever since The LEGO Movie shocked the world in 2014 with how entertaining and imaginative it was. Since then, it had led to a sequel, a Batman spinoff movie, and the LEGO Ninjago Movie. These films were all under Warner Bros. before their deal with LEGO expired.

Universal Pictures is hoping to have LEGO movies that are new and imaginative while crossing over with their own titles. The studio is banking to launch new franchises and hopes that this gives the LEGO movies more of a resurgence. The hope for a resurgence is probably due to the box office numbers indicating that each LEGO movie becomes less successful.

Despite their numbers not being very good recently, these LEGO movies still have the potential to become box office hits and great children's content for theaters. If LEGO finds a comeback, this will be a great move for Universal.
