The LEGO Ninjago movie trailer is here and it’s awesome

OK, so now we can’t wait for The LEGO Ninjago Movie

Following yesterday’s trailer tease, the first full trailer for The LEGO Ninjago Movie is here and it’s hilarious.

“In this big-screen Ninjago adventure, the battle for Ninjago City calls to action young Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret warriors and LEGO Master Builders.  Led by kung fu 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 true power.”

The LEGO Ninjago Movie stars Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Olivia Munn, Kumail Nanjiani, Michael Peña, Zach Woods, and Jackie Chan.

With The LEGO Batman Movie proving to be as awesome as we’d hoped (read our review here), this looks like it could be another win for these consistently funny and sweet series. And Justin Theroux’s baddie seems to be riding a giant shark, and that’s just brilliant, isn’t it?

The LEGO Ninjago Movie is in cinemas October 13. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
