LEGO Ninjago, the third film in Warner Bros. Animation’s LEGO Universe, hits just after schools go back and, like the target audience for the film, the secret ninja team at the center of the film tasked with saving the LEGO world from the evil Garmadon (Justin Theroux) are indeed still in high school. To prep potential viewers, the cast of the film has a few tips for balancing the thrilling double life of being a student and a ninja warrior.
In a new promo for The LEGO Ninjago Movie, female warrior Nya (voiced by Abbi Jacobson) gives any prospective ninjas some much-needed advice about the qualities of living as a hero. According to Nya, the key qualities of a ninja are strength, power, and confidence, something her team possesses in their fight against the forces of evil. It also apparently takes some hero worship, as Nya has taped-up pictures in her locker of some of the other female heroes of the LEGO universe, including Lucy/Wyldstyle and Unikitty from The LEGO Movie and Batgirl from The LEGO Batman Movie. Also featured is the LEGO version of Wonder Woman, who of course made her first appearance in The LEGO Movie and whose live-action counterpart was the runaway hit of this past Summer.
Both The LEGO Movie and The LEGO Batman Movie have been hilarious, high-energy family films, and there’s no reason to suggest that The LEGO Ninjago Movie will be any different when it distracts kids from their homework at the end of September.
