The first trailer for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is here, and everything is not awesome in Bricksburg.

Taking place five years after the original movie that stole our hearts, the brick town has turned into something straight out of Mad Max: Fury Road after “the horrific events of Taco Tuesday.” But an alien invasion throws everything into disarray once Lucy (Elizabeth Banks) is kidnapped and the very ordinary Emmett (Chris Pratt) has to rescue her and everyone else taken.

With plenty of callbacks, familiar block faces (including Lego Batman), and taking shots at itself, it’s setting itself up for an even bigger, more epic build.

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part will head into theaters Feb. 8, 2019.
