USA Today has released a new image of the suits for the upcoming The LEGO Ninjago Movie. As you can see above, the image shows Kai (Michael Pena), Nya (Abbi Jacobson), Jay (Kumail Nanjiani), Lloyd (Dave Franco), Zane (Zach Woods), and Cole (Fred Armisen) all donning new suits. You can also see the hairstyles are slightly different than in the animated series especially Cole who looks like he’s sporting a man bun now.
We’ve also seen an image of Lord Garmardon (Justin Theroux) who was revealed a few days ago and Sensei Wu (Jackie Chan) from the animated short from last year. The only character we haven’t seen yet is Olivia Munn’s Koko.
Keep in mind that they’re grown up now in The LEGO Ninjago Movie and are in high school. Also, the movie is not in the same universe as in the animated series either but in the same as The LEGO Movie. The LEGO Ninjago Movie is in theaters on September 22. So what do you guys think of the new suits?
Even with the success of the first movie, it looks like that are more changes to The LEGO Movie Sequel. ComicBook.com is reporting that Trolls director Mike Mitchell has now been named the new director for The LEGO Movie Sequel. He replaces Rob Schrab who announced as the previous director around this time two years ago. According to reports, the change to Mitchell was based on creative differences between Warner Bros. and Schrab.
The swap in directors for The LEGO Movie Sequel is the latest change for the movie. Last year, the original script by Phil Lord and Chris Miller was rewritten by Raphael Bob-Waksberg and also the release date was pushed back for a second time to 2019.
You can now pre-order some of the Wave 8 LEGO Dimensions expansion packs on Amazon. These expansion packs will be available on May 9.

Warner Bros. has released details of the official cast for The LEGO Batman Movie and there are some surprises that we can expect to see in the movie. We already know the main cast which includes Will Arnett as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zach Galifianakis as The Joker, Michael Cera as Dick Grayson/Robin, Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth, Mariah Carey as Mayor McCaskill, Jenny Slate as Dr. Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn, Billy Dee Williams as Harvey Dent/Two-Face, and Hector Elizondo as Commissioner James Gordon.
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble—LEGO® Batman—stars in his own big-screen adventure.
But there are big changes brewing in Gotham City, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

A few months ago, I talked about one of upcoming books for The LEGO Batman Movie called The Making of the Movie. If you’re thinking about picking it up, the Amazon pre-order for it is currently on sale for 21% off the retail price. The Making of the Movie takes a look at the behind the scenes stuff for The LEGO Batman Movie which I think is very interesting. The release date for the book is February 14 so if the price goes lower than it is now, you’ll pay the lowest price between now and then.
