Here is some very exciting news for LEGO Ninjago fans that came out last week: the upcoming Ninjago movie by Warner Bros. now has an official release date scheduled. The Ninjago movie should hit theatres on September 23, 2016. Charlie Bean (“Tron: Uprising”) will direct the movie with Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller as producers.
The Ninjago movie was first announced to be in development last summer (see: LEGO Ninjago Movie Coming to Theatres! ). It is being written by brothers Dan and Kevin Hageman, who have also worked on the Ninjago animated series for Cartoon Network and The LEGO Movie – so we should expect some great adventure and serious fun. 🙄
As far as what the Ninjago movie is going to be about there is little information available right now. The only thing I have read so far is that the Ninjago movie is going to go in a different direction than the Ninjago series on Cartoon Network. So what will that look like? We just have to wait and see! Also, according to the first teaser-trailer (see video above) it seems there may be some tie-ins with The LEGO Movie. Hopefully more information will be coming out soon. In the meantime you can check out the currently available LEGO Ninjago sets at the Online LEGO Shop.
Since we are on the topic of upcoming LEGO movies, I might as well also mention that the sequel to The LEGO Movie (also produced by Warner Bros.) is scheduled for May 26, 2017. So we will get the Ninjago movie first in September of 2016, then 8 months later part two of The LEGO Movie. The LEGO Movie has been insanely popular and grossed over $460 million worldwide, bringing many people back to the LEGO hobby.
