Given the financial and critical success of both “The Lego Movie” and “The Lego Batman Movie,” it’s reasonable to assume that we will be seeing a lot more Lego themed movies in the near future. The newest addition to the Lego Universe (who would’ve thought that’d be a thing?) is “The Lego Ninjago Movie” (check out the previous trailer here). The film follows a young master builder who has to fight off an evil warlord. Read the official synopsis below:
The battle for NINJAGO City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd (Dave Franco), aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, also secret ninja warriors. Led by Master Wu (Jackie Chan), as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat the evil warlord Garmadon (Justin Theroux), who also happens to be Lloyd’s dad. Pitting father against son, the epic showdown tests these fierce but undisciplined modern-day ninjas as they learn to check their egos and pull together to unleash the inner power of Spinjitzu.
In addition to Franco, Chan, and Theroux, the rest of the voice cast includes: Olivia Munn, Michael Pena, Fred Armisen, and Abbi Jacobson. The story was developed by “The Lego Movie” writers Dan and Kevin Hagerman and looks to include the same type of humor and awareness from that film. “The Lego Ninjago Movie” will be released on September 22nd. Let us know what you think of the trailer below.
