In an interview with Yahoo, Olivia Munn – who voices Koko in The LEGO NINJAGO Movie – explained that some of the cast members went for their typical riffing rather than bearing in mind that it is a movie for all ages.
“In particular, the Silicon Valley guys [Woods and Nanjiani] were really inappropriate. They don’t know how to be kid-friendly, which was a big problem for a kid-friendly movie.”
It’s perhaps not surprising given that the cast are some of the finest comic actors around. Zach Woods and Kumail Nanjiani discussed their ad-libbing process.
“We said words like the F-word, the P-word, the B-word… the W-word,” said Nanjiani.
“That one’s rough,” added Woods.
