The Voice Cast of The Lego Ninjago Movie Is Probably Better Than It Needs to Be

It’s kind of mindblowing to think there are multiple Lego movies on the horizon. There’s the 2019 sequel to The Lego Movie, a Batman-centric spinoff in 2017, and The Lego Ninjago Movie, based on the absurdly popular ninja-themed Lego brand. It hits next fall and the voice cast has just been revealed.


Revealed via a catalog at a Licensing Expo, the cast is as follows: Jackie Chan as Master Wu, Dave Franco as Lloyd, Michael Peña as Kai, Abbi Jacobson as Nya, Kumail Nanjiani as Jay, Zach Woods as Zane and Fred Armisen as Cole. That’s a pretty great cast, led by the legendary Jackie Chan along with a slew of really funny actors from Silicon Valley, Broad City, and Portlandia. The filmmakers are certainly going for a type.

The Lego Ninjago Movie is being directed by Charlie Bean from a script by Dan and Kevin Hageman (who worked on the Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitsu TV show), Bryan Shukoff and Kevin Chesley. Chris Miller and Phil Lord, directors of the first Lego Movie, are producing. It’s scheduled for release on September 22, 2017.
