The Lego Movie Makers Pledge to Do Better on Female Characters in Sequel

I’m not sure our movie passes the Bechdel test entirely and I think that it’s important. We have a lot of producers [who] were female who had concerns and we were always constantly saying to ourselves: ‘Are we just a bunch of white guys sitting here making this movie from our own myopic point of view?’ We were constantly responding to that question and that helped us make Wyldstyle a better character and Unikitty a more interesting character. I think it’s forcing us to look at how we make a sequel and turn that into something that’s more powerful and special.Chris McKay to The Daily Mail.

Heartening words from the co-director of The Lego Movie and sole director of its greenlit sequel!

Kung Fury Is the Writhing Core at the Heart of All ’80s Action Films

Look, I’m not going to try to explain or excuse the ’80s other than to say that they produced me, so let that stand in their favor. This was a Kickstarter, FYI.
