2017 is gearing up to be a big year for Warner Bros. and their (if you will) LEGO cinematic universe, as the studio is releasing not one, but two theatrical movies in the coming months. While the first of which, The LEGO Batman Movie, is due out in most major territories on February 10th, fans will still have to wait until the latter half of the year for The LEGO Ninjago Movie. However, according to a new report from TrailerTrack, a website devoted to trailer news, Ninjago devotees won’t have to wait much longer for more footage from the upcoming movie, as the BBFC has rated the first trailer.
Essentially, this means that we can expect the trailer to drop very soon, most likely a few days before the Caped Crusader swings into theaters. Don’t be surprised if as early as a week from today a new look at the movie has hit the web and if it’s shown during the LEGO Batman previews. It certainly makes sense that Warner Bros. would line up the trailer’s release with that of LEGO Batman, hoping the former will piggyback off the latter in terms of garnering an audience.
Additionally, the aforementioned BBFC claims that the trailer clocks in at a full-length 2 minutes and 23 seconds.
Ninjago is the story of six young ninja tasked with defending their island home, called Ninjago. By night, they’re gifted warriors, using their skills and awesome fleet of vehicles to fight villains and monsters. By day, they’re ordinary teens struggling against their greatest enemy: high school.
The LEGO Ninjago Movie is set to hit cinemas on September 22nd in the US and October 13th in the UK, with a voice cast that includes Dave Franco as Lloyd Garmadon, Michael Pena as Kai, Kumail Nanjiani as Jay, Fred Armisen as Cole, Zach Woods as Zane, Abbi Jacobson as Nya, Justin Theroux as Lord Garmadon, Olivia Munn as Koko and Jackie Chan as Sensei Wu. Charlie Bean will direct the film, while Paul Fisher and Bob Logan will co-direct and co-write; Hilary Winston has a scripting credit as well.
