As we mentioned before back in February, there were reports of a LEGO Ninjago movie by Warner Bros. that could be hitting theaters. According to Variety, the movie has a release date of September 23, 2016. Dan Lin and Roy Lee will join Phil Lord and Christopher Miller as producers for the new Ninjago movie and Charlie Bean will be directing it. It’s still to early to know what the movie will be about but it will probably have the same type of action/adventure style the popular cartoon series currently has.
In addition, the Ninjago movie will hit theaters before the sequel to The LEGO Movie, who has a release date of May 26, 2017. By adding another movie from the LEGO Universe, this could prove to be pivotal in strengthening the relationship between The LEGO Group and Warner Bros. which means the whole franchise will stay with the movie studio. The LEGO Movie opened on February 7th and has grossed $460 million worldwide with $254 million coming domestically.
