(USA TODAY) The minds behind the animated hit The Lego Movieare building another movie about the toy bricks.

Warner Bros. studios announced Friday that the new untitled Lego sequel will be released May 26, 2017.

It was almost a foregone conclusion a new film would be made after The Lego Movie has made more than $200 million in universal box office and looks to dominate the nation's box office for the third weekend in a row.

Writer-directors Christopher Miller and Phil Lord were the first to bring the popular toy to life in a major theatrical release. It was considered a gamble.

"All we do is stuff that would seem to be terrible, and we count on low expectations," Lord joked at the time of release. "And we exceed those expectations."

The filmmakers brought on board for the sequel will not have the benefit of these low expectations. Besides the box office dominance, The Lego Movie has been one of the best reviewed movies of the year.

Producer Dan Lin told USA TODAY about Lego story ideas: "There are certainly more worlds to explore."
