The Lego Movie 2 to feature more female characters

Good news for equality in the Lego-verse, The Lego Movie 2 is set to feature more female characters! In a recent interview with the BBC, the writers and directors of The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller commented on their efforts to have a bit more gender balance in the next chapter, with Miller noting:
I don't want to give spoilers but there will be more female characters and more female stuff.
Lord put it this way:
It's important to us that the movie plays broadly and that we inspire young women as much as we inspire young men.
Lord also expressed a feeling the film culture is finally moving in the direction of better gender representation:
You can feel that the whole movie culture is now starting to wake up to the fact that half the audience are women. 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.
Whatever the inspiration, sounds like a good move to me! I wonder if the Ninjago and Batman Lego movies that are set for release before The Lego Movie 2 will also manage to incorporate more female characters.
