With The LEGO Batman Movie now poised to hit theaters next week, and perhaps to rake in a lot in the box office as well, Warner Bros. has now begun to tease on its third major film collaboration with LEGO. We already have an idea what The LEGO Ninjago Movie is all about since WB’s release of the film’s synopsis courtesy of Screen Rant:
In this big-screen Ninjago adventure, the battle for Ninjago City calls to action young Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret warriors and LEGO Master Builders. Led by kung fu master Wu, as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon, the Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd’s dad. Pitting mech against mech and father against son, the epic showdown will test this fierce but undisciplined team of modern-day ninjas who must learn to check their egos and pull together to unleash their true power.
Now if you read the synopsis carefully, it seems that our ninjas will have a lot on their plate other than the usual teenage issues. As mentioned in the synopsis, Lloyd and his friends must eventually come into terms of defeating the film’s main villain, Lord Garmadon. Quite unfortunately for the team, the evil warlord happens to be Lloyd’s dad as well. Though LEGO has unveiled the name of the various building sets that will accompany The LEGO Ninjago Movie, none of these seem to hint on how the nefarious Lord Garmadon looks like.
However, thanks to a Tweeter post from USA Today Life, we now have our first look on the evil villain of the film. Check this out.
Borrowing heavily from images of medieval Japan with its terrifying warlords and awe inspiring warriors, Lord Garmadon is a sight to behold. What’s even more exciting is the fact that USA Today Life hints on more reveals this coming weekend. Coupled with the fact that an official trailer for The LEGO Ninjago Movie may arrive soon as reported by Trailer Track, this weekend is certainly something to look forward to. LEGO movies are known for its comedic parodies on certain Hollywood themes: The LEGO Movie capitalizes on the notion of the Chosen One, while the upcoming The LEGO Batman Movie is a pun on the life of a self-centered, brooding superhero. The LEGO Ninjago Movie is no exception, following a plot that will probably make Anakin and Luke Skywalker smile. Here’s another shot of Lord Garmadon, as he is locked in combat with his son Lloyd.

Whatever the case is, we’ll get a better idea once the official trailer hits online and on TV screens any time soon.
The LEGO Batman Movie opens in U.S. theaters next week, February 10, followed by The LEGO Ninjago Movie on September 22, The LEGO Movie 2 on February 8, 2019 and Billion Brick Race on May 24, 2019.
