LEGO has announced that The LEGO® Ninjago® Movie is coming soon, and starring China's own action man Jackie Chan.

 

The movie will also spin its way off the big screen and into the hands of children around the world beginning August 2017 through a collection of 15 building sets and a new series of collectible LEGO figures based on the film's characters. Builders of all ages will have an opportunity to recreate scenes and adventures from the highly anticipated animated feature film from Warner Bros. Pictures, Warner Animation Group and LEGO Systems A/S. The film opens in cinemas worldwide beginning September 22in 2D and 3D.

 

 

The new animated adventure The LEGO Ninjago® Movie stars Jackie Chan (“Kung Fu Panda,” The Karate Kid”) stars as Master Wu; Justin Theroux (“Megamind 2,” “The Leftovers”) is Garmadon; Dave Franco (“Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising”) plays Lloyd; and Olivia Munn (“X-Men: Apocalypse”) is Lloyd’s mom, Koko. Making up the secret ninja crew, Michael Peña (“Ant-Man,” “The Martian”) is Kai; Fred Armisen (“The Jim Gaffigan Show,” “SNL”) voices Cole; Kumail Nanjiani (“Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates”) is Jay; Abbi Jacobson (“Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising”) plays Nya; and Zach Woods (“Silicon Valley”) voices Zane.

 

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 produced by Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who previously collaborated on the worldwide box-office phenomenon The LEGO Movie, along with Maryann Garger (Flushed Away) and Chris McKay (The LEGO Batman Movie). The executive producers are Seth Grahame-Smith, Jill Wilfert, and Keith Malone, with John Powers Middleton serving as co-producer.

 

"Ninjago has captured the imaginations of kids around the world for years through building sets, a hit animated television series, and a roster of lifestyle merchandise, so we're thrilled to introduce an amazing collection of building sets based on the highly anticipated film, The LEGO Ninjago Movie," said Jill Wilfert, Vice President, Licensing and Entertainment, at LEGO Group.

 

"The breadth and variety of these toys, from dojos to mechs to subs – guarantees that Ninjago builders will enjoy hours of action-packed building and play recreating – and hopefully expanding upon – the film's story."
