The Lego Ninjago Movie trailer

It took Warner Bros. a while to get out a follow-up to 2014’s The Lego Movie, but now we’re getting two of them in one year. This weekend marks the debut of The Lego Batman Movie, featuring the return of the tiny plastic minifig version of the Dark Knight. Then this fall we’re getting The Lego Ninjago Movie, centered around an entirely new cast of characters based on a distinct Lego toyline.

Dave Franco voices Lloyd, a young secret ninja who’s friends with a bunch of other young secret ninjas. When his dad, the evil lord Garmadon (Justin Theroux) poses a threat, Lloyd and his friends must take him down with the guidance of their mentor, Master Wu (Jackie Chan). Olivia Munn plays Lloyd’s mom Koko, and Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Kumail Nanjiani, Michael Peña, and Zach Woods round out the core cast as Lloyd’s buddies. Click through to watch the first The Lego Ninjago Movie trailer.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie

This week brings The LEGO Batman Movie to theaters, but it’s not the only spin-off from The LEGO Movie we can look forward to before The LEGO Movie Sequel arrives in 2019 (which just got a new director). There’s also The LEGO Ninjago Movie, and our first look at the animated martial arts flick has just arrived.

The first LEGO Ninjago Movie photos have just arrived, showing off the team of teenage ninja heroes voiced by Dave Franco, Michael Pena, Zach Woods, Fred Armisen, Kumail Nanjiani and Abbi Jacobson. We also get a first look at the villain voiced by Justin Theroux, and a new look at the master voiced by Jackie Chan. Check out The LEGO Ninjago Movie photos after the jump.

UPDATE: We have a LEGO Ninjago Movie trailer tease which you can also watch below.  Read More »

Lego Ninjago short clip

Jackie Chan has shown off a lot of impressive moves and battled a lot of formidable foes over the course of his career. But in the first clip from The Master: A Lego Ninjago Short, his tiny plastic counterpart meets his match… in the form of an annoying little chicken voiced by Abbi Jacobson.

The short film, which premieres in front of Warner Animation Group’s Storks later this fall, looks plenty fun in its own right. But it also represents our best look yet at The Lego Ninjago Movie, the Lego Movie spinoff featuring Chan as a kung fu master who must lead his mentees against the evil warlord Garmadon. Justin Theroux narrates The Master, although you won’t hear him in this particular scene. Watch the Lego Ninjago short clip below.  Read More »
