lego movie sequel release dateWarner Bros

Whether it follows the continuing adventures of Emmet or features high-flying ninjas, the sequel to "The Lego Movie" has a release date: May 26, 2017.

Warner Bros. announced that the untitled follow-up to its massive blockbuster hit will hit theaters on Memorial Day weekend in three years.

As we noted earlier this week, the studio is considering greenlighting both a traditional sequel as well as a "Ninjago" spinoff.

Turning "The Lego Movie" into a franchise is a no-brainer. The film has grossed over $200 million worldwide in just two weeks, and is expected to top the box office again this weekend.

We'll be seeing Legos on screen for some time to come.
