LEGO Movie 2 will feature more female characters and more female role models, the film’s director and writer has revealed.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller told the BBC that the sequel to this year’s blockbusting animated film based on the popular construction toy will aim to inspire young women as much as young men.

“It’s important to us that the movie plays broadly and that we inspire young women as much as we inspire young men,” said Lord.

“I don’t want to give spoilers, but there will be more female characters and more female characters and more female stuff,” added Miller.

The writer and director noted that the idea to introduce more female characters for the upcoming film is a nod towards to the shifting culture in movie-goers.

“You can feel that the whole movie culture is now starting to wake up to the fact that half the audience is women,” said Lord. “frozen is reflective of that, and I think we are all going to find a great flourishing of women film makers and subject matter in the future.”

Miller added: “There’s been a real shortage of female protagonists in recent years and I think that the near future will be very different.”
