Some Very Funny People Are Lending Their Voices to The Lego Ninjago Movie


Everything continues to be awesome (hehe) in the Lego cinematic universe. Three films are currently in various stages of development, with The Lego Batman Movie, The Lego Ninjago Movie, and The Lego Movie 2 slated for respective releases in February 2017, September 2017, and February 2019. Now, in a move perhaps as smooth as Will Arnett's Lego Batman voice, the cast of Ninjago has been announced ... and it's bound to bring on the kid-friendly giggles. Jackie Chan will be voicing leader Master Wu, with Dave Franco, Michael Peña, Abbi Jacobson, Kumail Nanjiani, Zach Woods, and Fred Armisen also signing on as the six core team members. The film will follow "six young ninjas tasked with defending their island home" of Ninjago. By night, "they’re gifted warriors, using their skills and awesome fleet of vehicles to fight villains and monsters," but by day, they’re "ordinary teens struggling against their greatest enemy: high school." Hey, they'll have a great topic to write about for that required Common App essay.
