Until its release on September 22, Brick Fanatics will have to make do with salivating over the beauty and the wonder of the first LEGO NINJAGO Movie trailer
You can only see The LEGO Batman Movie so many times before turning attention to what’s coming next, so we have been freeze-framing the trailer to see what can be gleaned about The LEGO NINJAGO Movie.
Master Wu is voiced by none other than martial arts and action film legend Jackie Chan. The NINJAGO team’s leader is described to be ‘as wise-cracking as he is wise’…
Enter Lord Garmadon
The NINJAGO team will face off against a formidable and familiar foe in Lord Garmadon. NINJAGO fans will note how he already has his four arms in place, as he assembles an army to ‘conquer NINJAGO’.
The Team Assemble
We get a couple of shots of the assembled secret ninja warriors, sporting some smart-looking ninja threads – check out those mechs in the background…
A New City
At first glance it looks like The LEGO Movie’s Bricksburg, but under attack is the City of NINJAGO, with design taking clear inspiration from the modern super cities of Shanghai and Beijing.
Holy Hopping Green Dragon
One of the standout shots is Lloyd’s leap from a truly magnificent rendering of his fabled green dragon, unleashing at the same time both epic awesomeness and our great hopes for this to be one of the movie’s tie-in LEGO sets.
The key antagonist is also certainly one for showmanship, as Lord Garmadon makes quite the grand entrance into destruction riding none other than a giant flying robotic shark.
The film will play heavily on the relationship between Lloyd and his father, Lord Garmadon, at the same time as imbuing the story with the LEGO Movie Universe’s now firmly established brand of humour.
