Spoilers

  • The lego movie 2 doesn't have live action scenes but just short live action sequences like the lego batman movie
  • Rex Dangervest (Chris Pratt), the main antagonist, says he is a "galaxy defending archaeologist, cowboy, and raptor trainer". To which Emmet (also Chris Pratt) is confused. These are allusions to Chris Pratt's live-action past roles as Peter Quill/Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Josh Farady in The Magnificent Seven (2016), and Owen Grady in Jurassic World (2015).
  • When the Justice League go to fight the alien invaders, someone asks where Batman is, to which Superman replies that he's off on a solo adventure. This, along with comments made by Batman later in the film, seems to indicate that the events of 'The Lego Batman Movie' took place before the events in this movie.
  • During one of the early live action scenes of Finn and Bianca fighting over their Lego, Finn can be heard to say "I'm crafting a narrative involving time travel..." foreshadowing events in the movie.
  • When Maya Rudolph (as "Mom") steps on a brick, she comments that the level of pain is close to that of childbirth. Obviously, she's joking, but studies have shown that the pain of stepping on Lego bricks is actually higher than that of walking across hot coals or broken glass.
  • Rex seems to have some level of meta-awareness as he says to Emmet that everything that's happening isn't real and is just a metaphor for the loss of imagination in the mind of an adolescent.
  • At the very end of the film, Will Ferrell says (off screen), "Honey, where are my pants?" This was the title (and catchphrase) of Emmet's favorite show from the first movie.
  • Rex Dangervest's voice (Chris Pratt in a dual role) sounds remarkably similar to and heavily based upon the speech patterns of actor Kurt Russell. Russell previously played Ego, the Living Planet in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with Pratt. This is an interesting parallel as Ego was Star-Lord's (Pratt's character) older, more grizzled, secretly antagonistic father, and Rex is an older, more grizzled, secretly antagonistic version of Pratt's character Emmet in this film.
  • At one point in the movie, Emmet says "let's go save our friends" to Rex Dangervest, but at this point Rex hasn't met any of them yet. Since the audience have yet to learn that Rex is Emmet from the future, meaning this could be a foreshadowing of that reveal.
  • There is a Unikitty stuffed toy (that can be bought in Real Life) from the Unikitty Spin-Off series from Cartoon Network in the Background of one scene. This seems to explain that Unikitty was a show in this Universe before it was even a show in Real Life. considering the character was original to the Lego Movie brand & how well made the Toy is, it could imply The Boy, Finn, most likely got her from a LEGO Unikitty Box Set instead of making her Himself.
  • While he is talking about his past to Emmet, Rex (Radical Emmet Xtreme) is almost formed when he goes to someone's glasses as a mirror. Aside from him at the left of the glasses is the LEGO model of General Motors' Chevrolet Silverado. Chevolet is the automobile partner of the promotions of the theatrical releases of this and The Lego Batman Movie (2017).
  • In the scene near the wedding, Emmet jumps over the rim of the pyramid shaped planet while Rex stays on it while they're talking. This makes it appear as Emmet is standing at a lake talking to its mirror image, which foreshadows the story, that both are one and the same person.
