We know you’re probably focused on the fact that The LEGO Batman Movie comes out this week (Friday, February 10th), but now there’s another LEGO film coming your way. Yes, the first trailer for The LEGO Ninjago Movie was released today (Feb. 8) by Warner Bros. and it’s awesome.
We’ve fallen in love with all of the LEGO movies and its leading characters like, Chris Pratt’s Emmett in The LEGO Movie, and Will Arnett’s Caped Crusader aka Batman in the latest Batman spin off. Now it’s all about Dave Franco as Green Ninja Lloyd.
So what can we expect from the next toy inspired movie? Lots of action, for starters.
The trailer begins with a bunch of LEGO people fleeing the city on Ninjago, because an evil warrior is attacking it.
There are fights, dragons — lots and lots of dragons — and of course the Green Ninja, who plans to save the day as the newest Master Builder.
“In a far away land, threatened by darkness, defended by honor, the forces of good and evil are related,” the screen reads while giving us glimpses of the movie.
Yes, Green Ninja’s father is the bad guy, Garmadon, so we are obviously getting serious Star Wars vibes, which is great.
Can the city be saved by Lloyd and his fellow ninja warriors? Or will his father win and annoy him along the way by butt dialing him and mispronouncing his name? We don’t know, but we are excited to find out!
The LEGO Ninjago Movie hits theaters on September 22, 2017.
