There’s Bad Blood In The First Trailer For The LEGO NINJAGO Movie

The latest bricktastic LEGO movie, ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’, swoops into UK cinemas this Friday and we already have a trailer the LEGO film that will follow it into cinemas later this year. The first trailer for ‘The LEGO NINJAGO Movie’ has arrived, following  a teaser trailer yesterday, alongside a synopsis.

If I’m honest, I didn’t really enjoy this trailer as much as I did the previous 2 LEGO movie trailers. But my initial impression is that maybe this film is geared to relate more to it’s younger target audience, unlike ‘The LEGO Movie’ and ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ which have a much wider appeal. Don’t get me wrong, that’s not to say I might not enjoy this film when I watch it, but this first trailer doesn’t have me convinced I’ll enjoy it as much as it’s LEGO predecessors.

I have to say, this is yet another fantastic and strong voice cast for a LEGO movie. Warner Bros. sure know how to pick ’em! I just hope that this spectacular voice cast are not underused like some big named voices were in ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’. This will be a big step for LEGO if this film proves successful, and could pave the way for future films based on other LEGO characters and parts of the LEGO brand that don’t include iconic characters, such as Batman, such as a ‘Nexo Knights’ film. The possibilities are truly endless with LEGO. 

The official synopsis is:

A new animated adventure in Warner Bros. Pictures’ LEGO® franchise, “The LEGO NINJAGO Movie” stars Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Olivia Munn, Kumail Nanjiani, Michael Peña, Zach Woods, and the legendary Jackie Chan.

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 LEGO NINJAGO Movie’ is round-housing it’s way into UK cinemas on  13th October 2017
