The trailer for "Lego Movie 2: The Second Part" shows that life has changed for our Lego star bricks.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is taking on a new role: a minifigure with a deck in "The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part."
Lego Ginsburg, with his Supreme Court gown, will naturally be shown in the new trailer spot released on Sunday for the sequel to "Lego Movie" that will be released on the screens on February 8.
"These movies are so full of surprises, and we were thinking," Who is the last person you think you see in a Lego movie as a minifig? "Ruth Bader Ginsburg!" Says director Mike Mitchell. "And we're all big fans, she made us laugh when we thought about her entering this world."
Ginsburg fits into the story, which presents brothers playing with a Lego universe. The brief pioneering role of the Supreme Court is part of the younger sister's creative universe, says Mitchell.

Producers / writers Chris Miller and Phil Lord, who directed the movie "Lego Movie" in 2014, agreed that Ginsburg fits perfectly into the world. The duo said in a statement: "We were just trying to think of people who should be immortalized in Lego and who seem to have fun at weddings."
The filmmakers approached the Ginsburg office to seek approval of the apparition.
"She said:" Of course, I would love to be a Lego figure, that would be great, "says Mitchell.
Ginsburg was operated on December 21 to remove two cancerous growths from his left lung. She was released five days later and has been recovering at home.
Your new role has Lego advantages. Ginsburg will become an official statuette of "Lego Movie 2".
"So there will be a real Ruth Bader Ginsburg toy that boys and girls can play with, and it will even come with a hammer," says Mitchell.
