The LEGO Batman Movie has released first look images and two teaser trailers about the caped crusader’s animated adventure. The animated feature being produced entirely at Animal Logic’s Sydney studio is directed by Chris McKay who was Co-Director on The LEGO Movie.
Part of the film will be in “the ho-hum day-to-day of being Batman and what it’s like to fight crime each day.” Said, Director Chris McKay - “Batman is an island onto himself, the only thing he doesn’t have is relationships. We’re making About a Boy as directed by (action director) Michael Mann.” Producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller also say that the film will address if Batman can ever be happy, and that the spin-off will acknowledge every era of Batman filmmaking.
The LEGO Batman Movie opens February 10, 2017, and also features the voices of Michael Cera as Robin,Zach Galifianakis as The Joker, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred, Rosario Dawson as Batgirl, and Mariah Carey as Gotham City’s mayor.
