The Lego Batman movie will lead Warner Bros' upcoming Lego film slate: but not until 2017 now...
Warner Bros has updated the release dates of three of its upcoming Lego movies, and as part and parcel of that, it's put back the Lego Ninjago film from 2016 to 2017.
As things stand, the next Lego film we're going to get will now be Lego Batman. It's being directed by Chris McKay, and will feature the vocal talents of Will Arnett. It's going to be released on February 10th 2017.
Next up? That'll be the aforementioned Ninjago film. Charlie Bean (Tron: Uprising) is directing this one, from a screenplay by Dan and Kevin Hageman. Warner Bros has set a September 22nd 2017 date for it.
Warner Bros has set release dates for The Lego Movie Sequel and two spinoffs.
