Dave Franco, Kumail Nanjiani and Michael Pena are among the actors who will lend their voices to The Lego Ninjago Movie, the latest Lego animated movie from Warner Bros. Pictures.

Justin Theroux, Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Olivia Munn, Zach Woods and Jackie Chan are also on the brick bill.

Warner Bros. made the announcement Thursday.

The plot, per the studio, revolves around the battle of Ninjago City, and “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,” the studio description reads.
