The LEGO Ninjago Movie
The popular children’s television series receives the Lego-brand feature film treatment, which means lots of rapid-fire gags, a cheerful affirmation of the value of teamwork, and Daddy issues. This time, they’re between the evil Lord Garmadon, who is forever attempting to conquer the city of Ninjago, and his son Lloyd, the Green Ninja who is forever thwarting his plans. (Kids: always getting in the way…) Jackie Chan and Dave Franco lead an all-star cast; Charlie Bean, Bob Logan, and Paul Fisher direct; and there’s a cat named Meowthra. 2017.
