While Warner Bros. doesn't hold their main Hall H panel at Comic-Con 2017 until this morning, last night, the studio held a separate panel for The LEGO Ninjago Movie, where a new trailer and poster arrived. In case you didn't get to make it to this panel, which featured stars Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Abbi Jacobson, Olivia Munn, Kumail Nanjiani, Michael Pena, Zach Woods and producer Dan Lin, we have the full trailer and poster below. For those who are in San Diego, you can also head to the Omni Hotel to participate in "Ninjoga," a tai chi/yoga-like workout for the ninja in everyone. The class begins at 10 AM, Thursday through Sunday.
The new trailer from Warner Bros. sheds some new light on the unorthodox relationship between Lloyd (Dave Franco), his estranged father Garmadon (Justin Theroux) and his mother Koko (Olivia Munn), with a scene where Koko explains to Lloyd how she met his father. She explains that he was so ambitious when they first met, and she thought his plans to "take over the world" was just a figure of speech. She adds, though, that she doesn't regret meeting Garmadon, because that means she'd never have Lloyd. The trailer also showcases a massive beast that has been awakened, Meowfla, which is a common house cat that destroys a Lego building.
A new animated adventure in Warner Bros. Pictures' LEGO franchise, The LEGO Ninjago Movie centers on the battle for Ninjago City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret ninja warriors.
