Wait there are going to be 2 LEGO movies this year? Everything is awesome! Here is the trailer for the latest LEGO spinoff film and it looks just as funny as you expect it to be. This will be a interesting test for LEGO and Warner Bros. as this is the first movie using an existing IP product line from LEGO which is also a cartoon series “LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu“. “The LEGO Movie” was a massive success and it is looking like “The LEGO Batman Movie” is going to be the same so I don’t think this film will have any issues but it will be interesting to see if it performs as well. The other thing to note is this looks a soft reboot of the first season of “LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu” with the story arch of Lord Garmadon as the villain which I guess they are doing to introduce new people to the Ninjago Universe / product line. Overall it looks great and we can’t wait. Hopefully someday we will get a LEGO 1980s Space Movie because we all love “SPACESHIPS!”
Here’s the official synopsis for The LEGO Ninjago Movie:
The LEGO NINJAGO Movie stars Jackie Chan (Kung Fu Panda) stars as Master Wu, Justin Theroux (HBO’s “The Leftovers”) as Garmadon, Dave Franco (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) as Lloyd, Fred Armisen (IFC’s “Portlandia”) as Cole, Abbi Jacobson (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) as Nya, Kumail Nanjiani (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”) as Jay, Michael Peña (Ant-Man) as Kai, Zach Woods (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”) as Zane, and Olivia Munn (“X-Men: Apocalypse”) is Lloyd’s mom, Koko.
In this big-screen NINJAGO adventure, the battle for NINJAGO City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret ninja warriors. Led by Master Wu, as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon, The Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd’s dad. Pitting mech against mech and father against son, the epic showdown will test this fierce but undisciplined team of modern-day ninjas who must learn to check their egos and pull together to unleash their inner power of Spinjitzu.
The LEGO Ninjago Movie hits theaters on 22nd September 2017.
