CS sits down with The LEGO Batman Movie cast and crew!
This Friday, Warner Bros. Pictures returns to the worlds of LEGO with The LEGO Batman Movie! Will Arnett reprises his role of Batman from The LEGO Movie with Michael Cera as Robin the boy wonder, Rosario Dawson as Batgirl, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth, Mariah Carey as Gotham’s mayor and Zach Galifianakis as The Joker. CS recently had the chance to sit down with some of the LEGO Batman Movie cast and even some of the LEGO characters themselves!
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure: The LEGO Batman Movie. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
Chris McKay is directing The LEGO Batman Movie from a script by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter creator Seth Grahame-Smith. Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who directed The LEGO Movie, are producing the film along with Dan Lin.
The LEGO Batman Movie will open in theaters on February 10, 2017. The LEGO cinematic universe will then expand again later in 2017 with the release of The LEGO Ninjago Movie. Catch it on the big screen September 22, 2017.
Check back early next week, too, as we’ll have a spoiler-filled set of interviews with director Chris McKay and producer Dan Lin. They’re chatting about not just planning The LEGO Batman movie but a slate of LEGO films that has already been mapped out through 2020! Lin also shares his dream of where he’d like to see another LEGO Batman movie go.
