At Comic-Con today, Warner Brothers hosted a panel with the cast of the upcoming The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part including Jurassic World’s own Chris Pratt. He voiced the lead character Emmet Brickowski in the hit 2014 film, The LEGO Movie, and returns for the 2019 sequel. But Emmet won’t be the only character Pratt will be voicing in the sequel, he will also be voicing a new character named Rex Dangervest. Based on footage screened at Comic-Con today, Rex Dangervest appears to be a hybrid of a character between Owen Grady and Star Lord from The Guardians of the Galaxy.
Emmet ventures into space on his own and we meet a brand new character: Rex Dangervest, also voiced by Chris Pratt. Rex is a galaxy-saving archaeologist and, uh, raptor trainer. In other words, he is the “cool” version of Chris Pratt, while Emmet is the nerdy, Parks and Recreation version. Still, they quickly become buds – Rex has heard of “the special” and is ready for a team-up. They even have a similar fashion sense, which Rex’s raptor buddies pick up instantly. “Vest friends!” one of them growls in subtitles.
While the Owen Grady character himself won’t be appearing in the LEGO Movie sequel, Rex Dangervest sounds like a great parody character that Jurassic fans should check out. The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part hits theaters on February 9, 2019.
