In the wake of “The LEGO Movie” scoring critical acclaim and commercial success, Warner Bros. Pictures has set up a whole new slate of LEGO-themed films with a direct sequel in the works along with next year’s “The LEGO Batman Movie”.
But there’s another one in there, “The LEGO Ninjago Movie” which is based on the popular toy line which has already yielded a TV series on Cartoon Network. Very little has been revealed about the film until today as Brickset has uncovered the voice cast for the film whilst attending the Licensing Expo.
The cast includes: Jackie Chan as Master Wu, Dave Franco as Lloyd, Michael Pena as Kai, Abbi Jacobson as Nya, Kumail Nanjiani as Jay, Zach Woods as Zane, and Fred Armisen as Cole. There’s also an official synopsis which you can see below:
“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.”
Charlie Bean helms the film from a script by Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman. The movie is currently slated to hit cinemas on September 22nd 2017.
