And its name is Meowthra
Has your bare foot ever laid its unprotected sole on a loose brick of Lego? The searing pain is really something huh.
We kid about the blood and gore. Instead, expect to witness the perfect family film of the beloved meta-humour and toyetic action, this time through the eyes of shuriken-tossing, prepubescent ninjas.
Premiering in theatres on 28 September, the movie follows six young ninjas from the city of Ninjago as they juggle to meet the demands of fighting the forces of evil. By day, Lloyd (Dave Franco), Jay (Kumail Nanjiani), Kai (Michael Pena), Cole (Fred Armisen), Zane (Zach Woods) and Nya (Abbi Jacobson) are regular high school students. By night, the young ninjas are battling in their vehicles – Ninja Mech, led by their mentor, Master Wu (Jackie Chan). Their goal? To defeat nefarious warlord Garmadon (Justin Theroux), Lloyd’s father.
While the film’s A-list (and might we add, very diverse) cast will undoubtedly reel in the fanfare, the star of the show, however, goes to a real life-sized cat who takes up the role of the ultimate villain.
Everyone, please meet the Unstoppable Beast – Meowthra.
