Once The LEGO Movie debuted to critical acclaim and surprising commercial success Warner Bros. decided to double down on the building toys as a film franchise. Since then a number of LEGO films have been announced and set for release including The LEGO Batman Movie, The LEGO Movie Sequel, and The Billion Brick Race. Another LEGO movie was also put in development, The LEGO Ninjago Movie, based on one of the popular lines from the toys themselves, which itself has already spawned a TV series on Cartoon Network. Few details have been revealed about the film but we now know who we can expect to hear in the film when it debuts.

Brickset (via SlashFilm) discovered the voice cast for the film at the Licensing Expo and revealed that it includes Jackie Chan as Master Wu, Dave Franco as Lloyd, Michael Peña as Kai, Abbi Jacobson as Nya, Kumail Nanjiani as Jay, Zach Woods as Zane, and Fred Armisen as Cole.

An official description of the film was also revealed, which reads: “Inspired by the wildly popular LEGO line of toys, Ninjago is the story of six young ninja 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.”

The LEGO Ninjago Movie will be directed by Charlie Bean (Tron: Uprising, Robotboy) and written by Ninjago: Mastes of Spinjitsu scribes Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman. The LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will produce with Roy Lee and Dan Lin. Look for the film to debut in theaters September 22, 2017.

The LEGO Batman Movie will be the next LEGO movie to hit theaters, featuring Will Arnett in the title role, which will be released on February 10, 2017. The Lego Movie Sequel, directed by Rob Schrab (Community), will be released on February 8, 2019. The Billion Brick Race, set to be written by Jason Segel (The Muppets, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3), was originally set for a May 24, 2019 though it remains to be seen if it will hold onto that date.

So is this supposed to be canon to the Lego Movie universe like Lego Batman Movie or is this just a big screen movie featuring Ninjago characters in its own separate universe?

New LEGO Ninjago Movie Poster Brings the Team Together

SuperHeroHype

Jun 19, 2017

Warner Bros. Pictures has released a new The LEGO Ninjago Movie poster, which you can view in the gallery below! Let us know what you think about the poster in the comments.

A new animated adventure in Warner Bros. Pictures’ LEGO franchise, The LEGO Ninjago Movie stars Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Olivia Munn, Kumail Nanjiani, Michael Peña, Zach Woods, and the legendary Jackie Chan.

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.

Jackie Chan (Kung Fu Panda, The Karate Kid) stars as Master Wu; Justin Theroux (Megamind, The Leftovers) is Garmadon; Dave Franco (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) plays Lloyd; and Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse) is Lloyd’s mom, Koko. Making up the secret ninja crew, Fred Armisen (The Jim Gaffigan Show, SNL) voices Cole; Abbi Jacobson (Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising) plays Nya; Kumail Nanjiani (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates) is Jay; Michael Peña (Ant-Man, The Martian) is Kai; and Zach Woods (Silicon Valley) voices Zane.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie marks the feature film directorial debut of Charlie Bean (TRON: Uprising). The screenplay is by Hilary Winston & Bob Logan & Paul Fisher, story by Kevin Hageman & Dan Hageman and Hilary Winston & Bob Logan & Paul Fisher, based on LEGO Construction Toys.

The LEGO Ninjago Movie is produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Roy Lee, who previously collaborated on the worldwide box-office phenomenon The LEGO Movie, along with Maryann Garger (Flushed Away). Serving as executive producers are John Powers Middleton, Seth Grahame-Smith, Chris McKay, Jill Wilfert, and Keith Malone.

The film is slated to open nationwide on September 22, 2017.
