Given how well The LEGO Movie did in theatres, it’s really no surprise that multiple spinoffs have been ordered up. The LEGO Batman Movie and The LEGO Ninjango Movie are just two of those spinoffs and now, we know the voice cast of the latter.
Headlining the film will be an exciting roster of talent, with Jackie Chan, Dave Franco, Olivia Munn and Justin Theroux leading the way, with support from Zach Woods, Kumail Ninjiani, Abbi Jacobson, Fred Armisen and Michael Pena. Charlie Bean will be making his directorial debut here, with a screenplay from Hilary Winston, Bob Logan and Paul Fisher.
Considering the actors involved in the project, it’s fair to say that this is going to be one hell of a funny film, and while it’s unfortunate that Phil Lord and Chris Miller aren’t back behind the camera, we’re confident that the spinoff is in good hands.
For more on what to expect, you can consult the official plot summary below:
In this big-screen “Ninjago” adventure, the battle for Ninjago City calls to action young Lloyd (Franco), aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret warriors and Lego Master Builders. Led by kung fu master Wu, who’s as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon (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 LEGO Ninjango Movie opens in theatres on September 22nd, 2017.
