Here’s A First Look at LEGO Ninjago Movie’s Main Villain – Enter Lord Garmadon!

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. Credit goes to Promo Bricks for sharing this picture.

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.

 

New LEGO Ninjago Short Set To Hit Theaters Alongside Warner Bros’ ‘Storks’.

Warner Animation Group’s next big screen offering, Storks, is slated to hit theaters next month, and it seems that the 3D computer animated film is not the only star of the show. The Hollywood Reporter recently revealed that Warner Bros will also give audiences a glimpse of what to expect on its much anticipated LEGO Ninjago Movie ahead of its showing in 2017. Featuring a new animated short entitled The Master: A LEGO Ninjago Short, we’ll see Master Wu square off with an unlikely nemesis, simply called the ‘Chicken’. THR further reports that legendary Jackie Chan will debut as Master Wu in the said short, with Abbi Jacobson starring as the Chicken with Justin Theroux narrating. Theroux is also slated to voice Garmandon in the main LEGO Ninajago Movie.

Here’s the rest of THR’s report:

From Warner Bros. Pictures and WAG, in association with Lego System A/S, the five-minute short was directed by Jon Saunders, from a screenplay by Saunders and Ross Evans and story by Saunders, Evans, Carey Yost and Remington D. Donovan. Ryan Halprin produced.

The short announcement follows news that Chan, Jacobson and Theroux have all joined the voice cast for The Lego Ninjago Movie, which will also feature Chan voicing Wu and Jacobson voicing a ninja. Theroux will play Garmadon in The Lego Ninjago Movie, which has a Sept. 22, 2017, release date.

Following the success of 2014’s The Lego Movie, directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (who are executive producers of Storks, The Master and The Lego Ninjago Movie), WAG also intends to release spinoff feature The Lego Batman Movie, also planned for a 2017 release, as well as a Lego Movie sequel, slated for 2019.

Building on the success of The LEGO Movie and the high anticipation of fans for the upcoming LEGO Batman Movie, Warner Bros is also banking on one of LEGO’s original theme once it hits theaters on September 22, 2017. The LEGO Group also seems to be confident on how movie-going fans in general will receive the LEGO Ninjago Movie by adding several rumored sets and a line of collectible minifigures under its banner. Here’s a brief synopsis of the movie as we previously reported.
