Before the release of The LEGO Batman Movie, Warner Bros. has released the trailer to the next LEGO movie, The LEGO NINJAGO Movie.
Here’s the synopsis from Warner Bros:
“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.”
The movie stars Jackie Chan as Master Wu, Justin Theroux as Garmadon, Dave Franco as Lloyd, Olivia Munn as Lloyd’s mom, Koko, Fred Armisen as Cole, Abbi Jacobson as Nya, Kumail Nanjiani as Jay, Michael Peña as Kai, and Zach Woods as Zane.
This trailer was actually really fun! It seems like a great third movie to add to the LEGO cinematic universe. I really like that they are going to play with the father/son relationship between Lloyd and Garmadon. As long as they don’t overuse it, it could be really funny.
The animation looks really good, but that’s not really surprising. You kind of expect that from these movies, but that’s not to take away from it. The action looks cool, the hand to hand combat and the robot combat both look impressive for a LEGO animated movie.
I’m curious to whether the movie takes place within the universe of The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie, or not. I personally hope it does, because Warner Bros. has a really good idea with the LEGO movie franchise.
I really hope this movie is good, I loved The LEGO Movie and I will be seeing, and reviewing, The LEGO Batman Movie and I want this franchise to succeed.
Also, The LEGO Batman Movie review will be late, because I will be gone from Thursday to Sunday, so it’ll come later along with a John Wick Chapter 2 review. I’ll try and get some posts up while I’m gone.
