NEW Lego Ninjago Movie Cast Revealed

So there has been some interesting news about another new Lego movie. Though the official follow up to the actual Lego Movie is still a ways away, it appears that a featured length film based off of the popular Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu franchise has found its leading cast. Personally I have watched the entire first season of the animated series with my kids and I think it’s pretty cool. The odd thing is that even though this series has been on Cartoon Network since 2011 they have decided to go with different voice actors for the up coming movie.

Apparently the movie cast will include Jackie Chan as Master Wu, Dave Franco as Lloyd, Michael Peña as Kai, Abbi Jacobson as Nya, Kumail Ninjiani as Jay, Zach Woods as Zane and Fred Armisen as Cole. Again, as popular as the series already is I am surprised that the original voice actors from the series aren’t being used here. Usually the movie comes out first with A list voice actors being used and then they are replace with different voices for the TV series that comes later.
