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.

The Blues Mobile by Kai Einfeldt is the latest project to achieve 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas. It is also the first project to reach the goal in the First 2017 Review Stage.
If you’re not familiar with The Blues Mobile, it is based on the famous Dodge Monaco that was featured in the 1980 film The Blues Brothers.

There are also minifigures of the Blues Brothers proposed as well.
The British Board of Film Classification has released details about The LEGO Ninjago Movie trailer and that means that the first trailer will be dropping very soon. The trailer will run for 2 minutes and 23 seconds and according to my source, it might be coming as early as next week.
Our friends at PromoBricks has posted an image of The LEGO Ninjago Movie from the Nuremberg Toy Fair over on their Instagram and in the comments, they also stated that the first trailer will be coming next week which correlates to the information that we got.
The LEGO Ninjago Movie will be premiering in theaters September 22 and it will be in the same universe as in The LEGO Movie and the LEGO Batman Movie but not in the same continuity as in the animated TV series.
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.
