The LEGO Batman Movie is not the only 2017 LEGO film, there’s also something called The LEGO Ninjago Movie, and you can watch the hilarious first trailer below.
“Six young ninjas Lloyd, Jay, Kai, Cole, Zane and Nya are tasked with defending their island home, called Ninjago. By night, they’re gifted warriors, using their skills and awesome fleet of vehicles to fight villains and monsters. By day, they’re ordinary teens struggling against their greatest enemy: high school.”
So it’s basically Power Rangers, but they’re ninjas, at least that’s what I got. Anyway, smart of Warner to put this trailer out in front of The LEGO Batman Movie, as I’m pretty sure the Ninjago name doesn’t carry as much weight on its own. Now a lot more people will probably want to see it and that means this LEGO thing Warner has going on will continue to grow. One day we might even see them making two of these a year, every year.
The LEGO Ninjago Movie was directed by Charlie Bean with help from co-directors Paul Fisher and Bob Logan, who also penned the film’s screenplay with Hilary Winston. Voicing some of the animation’s characters are Dave Franco, Jackie Chan, Michael Pena, Justin Theroux and Olivia Munn.
The LEGO Ninjago Movie is scheduled to open in the US on September 22nd. The LEGO cinematic universe will continue with The LEGO Movie 2 on February 8th 2019.
