The LEGO Movie franchise has proven that if you build it, they will come. Coming off of two widely successful films, The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie, comes The LEGO Ninjago Movie – based off their Ninjago LEGO toyline. While the film is still set in the same LEGO world and has the same LEGO quirks – the self deprecating humor and pop culture nods – the film doesn’t pack the same punch as its predecessors. Which is ironic, because this is the most action-packed LEGO movie of them all. It’s filled with ninja action, mechs, and so much more. But a lackluster story that seems to be at odds with itself makes The LEGO Ninjago Movie the weakest of the three films. My full review below.
Warner Bros. has just released the first trailer for The LEGO Ninjago Movie that features the voice talents of Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Jackie Chan, Olivia Munn, Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Kumail Nanjiani, Michael PeÃ±a, and Zach Woods.
With The LEGO Batman Movie hitting theaters this weekend, now it seems like a perfect time to get our first look at newest spinoff. Check out the trailer along with a poster below.
Warner Bros, The LEGO Movie, was such a huge hit that the studio moved forward with spinoff films and a sequel. Since the film’s release, three spinoff films have been announced; the first will focus on Batman’s character; the second will center on Ninjago; the third and most recently announced one will be written by Jason Segel and Drew Pearce. Rob Schrab of Community will direct The LEGO Movie sequel. These spinoffs and its sequel will now see a shift in schedules, which is nothing entirely new as most will stay within their respective release years.
