The Lego Movie turned out to be a much better movie and a much bigger hit than anyone expected. As a result Warner Bros. has been looking to other places they could take animated Lego. We’ve already had the very funny The Lego Batman Movie, and a Lego Scooby Doo release is going straight to DVD.
They’ve also got a big screen Lego Ninjago Movie in the works. To tie in to Comic Con, a new trailer has been released, which suggests this could be an awful lot of fun and just as tongue-in-cheek as earlier Lego animated films.
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 UK cinemas in October.
