BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The main cast has been put together for “The LEGO® Ninjago Movie,” a new animated adventure in Warner Bros. Pictures’ LEGO franchise. The film will star Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Olivia Munn, Kumail Nanjiani, Michael Peña, Zach Woods, and the legendary Jackie Chan. “The LEGO Ninjago Movie” is slated to open nationwide on September 22, 2017.

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.

Jackie Chan (“Kung Fu Panda,” “The Karate Kid”) stars as Master Wu; Justin Theroux (“Magamind 2,” “The Leftovers”) is Garmadon; Dave Franco (“Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising”) plays Lloyd; and Olivia Munn (“X-Men: Apocalypse”) is Lloyd’s mom, Koko. Making up the secret ninja crew, Fred Armisen (“The Jim Gaffigan Show,” “SNL”) voices Cole; Abbi Jacobson (“Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising”) plays Nya; Kumail Nanjiani (“Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates”) is Jay; Michael Peña (“Ant-Man,” “The Martian”) is Kai; and Zach Woods (“Silicon Valley”) voices Zane.

Jill Wilfert, an executive producer on the film and Vice President of Licensing and Entertainment for LEGO Group, stated, “We are thrilled with the star-studded voice cast slated for ‘The LEGO Ninjago Movie.’ Our fans know and love Ninjago characters for their personalities and skills, so it’s only fitting that we assemble a diverse and talented cast to bring the world of Ninjago to life on the big screen.”

“The LEGO Ninjago Movie” marks the feature film directorial debut of Charlie Bean (“Tron: Uprising”). It is being produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Roy Lee, who previously collaborated on the worldwide box-office phenomenon “The LEGO® Movie,” along with Maryann Garger (“Flushed Away”). Chris McKay, Seth Grahame-Smith, Jill Wilfert, and Keith Malone are serving as executive producers. The screenplay is by Hilary Winston & Bob Logan & Paul Fisher, story by Kevin Hageman & Dan Hageman and Hilary Winston & Bob Logan & Paul Fisher, based on LEGO Construction Toys.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Warner Animation Group, in association with LEGO System A/S, a Lin Pictures/Lord Miller/Vertigo Entertainment Production, “The LEGO Ninjago Movie” will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

    Seeing as I don’t really watch the show maybe someone can answer this for me: What was wrong with the series voice actors?

    • Yochip

      They might want to have bigger names attached to the film.

      • Gomek

        I had to google every one (with exception of Jackie Chan) but then again maybe I’m not the target demographic. I just figured for the fans of the show (who I’m assuming is one of the target demographics) that the consistency would have been nice.

        • Dave 52

          I think it’s obvious they are aiming for the people who liked the original film and will like (if it is good) The Lego Batman Movie. Regardless of the brand.

        • Peter

          I think Dave Franco is a voice actor is “sausage party” .

        • I remember the first time I discovered Olivia Munn. I wish I was in your shoes now..

    • Dave 52

      This is an actual movie. Not a TV show. A movie that is a spin off of the The Lego Movie and takes place in that same universe. This movie is supposed to be an entirely new take that is completely different from the TV show and is being developed as if the show never happened and they only had the toys to work with. Being a movie and a new take you need to get big name or at least recognizable actors to voice the characters to get people interested in the film (the original film did it). The fact that it is “The LEGO Ninjago Movie” will not be enough to get people in seats. You need to get famous actors who people know to get people at leas curious in the film and, other than fans, people do not know the actors from the show.

      • Gomek

        I hadn’t read that this takes place in the same ‘universe’ as the Lego movie. I wonder if there will be any surprise tie ins.

  • Dizzy

    I’m a regular here, but this is the first time for me to comment, mostly because I noticed a problem with the listed characters,…. isn’t Lloyd’s mom Misako? Or do we need to wait for the movie? Koko sounds like a character they made for the movie
