First Batman, now ninjas. A new trailer has come for another “LEGO Movie” spinoff film, titled “The LEGO NINJAGO Movie.“ This time, it centers on the titular island, Ninjago, that is defended by mystical mech-using ninja-warriors.
In the film, teenagers and Master Builders Lloyd (Dave Franco), Jay (Kumail Nanjiani), Kai (Michael Peña), Cole (Fred Armisen), Zane (Zach Wood), and Nya (Abbi Jacobson) make up the team of defenders. Led by Sensei Wu (Jackie Chan), they fight Lord Garmadon, the Worst Guy Ever (Justin Theroux), while dealing with high school. However, there’s one problem: Garmadon is Lloyd’s absent dad. Now, Lloyd must deal with his feelings towards Garmadon while preparing for a final showdown for the fate of Ninjago.
The film also stars Olivia Munn as Koko, Lloyd’s mom. Charlie Ben directs the film, with Dan Hageman, Kevin Hageman, Kevin Chesley, and Bryan Shukoff writing the script. “The LEGO NINJAGO Movie” comes out September 22, 2017.
