The Lego Movie 4D at Legoland, and other sequel updates

Merlin Entertainments, who operate the Legoland parks and Discovery Centers, have announced they will releasing a new 4D sequel to The Lego Movie, exclusively at their Legoland attractions around the world. The new film promises the return of characters from The Lego Movie, as described in the press release:
Using elements such as wind, water, smoke and special lighting effects, the larger-than-life experience brings the film’s main characters, Emmet and Wyldstyle, back together with their friends for another awesome adventure.
There is also news from the regular The Lego Movie sequels in the works. The Lego Movie Sequel does indeed appear to be the title of the film that will be the direct, follow-up, to The Lego Movie, and The Hollywood Reporter have now revealed it will be directed by Rob Schrab - This seems like a good bet, with Schrab having a strong comedy background, directing episodes of Community, The Mindy Project, and The Sarah Silverman Program, among many other credits. Writers and Directors of the first movie, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, are returning as writers and producers, working on a story by co-created with Jared Stern and Michelle Morgan, and working alongside returning producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee.
