The Lego Movie turned out to be a much better movie and a much bigger hit than anyone expected. That got Warner Bros. excited and they didn’t just put a sequel in the works, they also developed The Lego Batman Movie, which hits cinemas this week, and also The Lego Ninjago Movie.
The trailer for the latter has now arrived, suggesting this will keep the rather tongue in cheek tone of the franchise so far, while introducing new audiences to a part of the Lego world that’s previously only been the preserve of youngsters.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘In this big-screen Ninjago adventure, the battle for Ninjago City calls to action young Lloyd (Dave Franco), aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret warriors and LEGO Master Builders. Led by kung fu master Wu as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon (Justin Theroux), 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 true power.’
The film will be in cinemas in October.
