Just read that Jenny Slate is the voice of Harley Quinn, and Rosario Dawson is Batgirl, and it just made me 3000 % more excited for The Lego Batman Movie, which is a lot, since I was already pretty damn excited!!!
Ahead of its release next month, the “LEGO Batman Movie” has revved up its promotion machine and released plenty of new videos, images and posters. Excitement for the Brick Knight’s solo movie has only increased with the release of every new irreverent trailer.
Now, Entertainment Weekly has just debuted nearly a dozen new character posters for the “LEGO Batman Movie,” each one running through a different one of Batman’s (Will Arnett) allies and villains, including Robin (Michael Cera), Batgirl (Rosario Dawson), Harley Quinn (Jenny Slate), Joker (Zach Galifianakis) and more. The stylish posters have been done in a graffiti style, which gives this toy-based movie an edgy appeal.
A spinoff of 2014’s “The LEGO Movie,” “The LEGO Batman Movie” sees Will Arnett reprise his voice role as the Dark Knight, joined by Michael Cera as Robin, Rosario Dawson as Batgirl, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred, Mariah Carey as the mayor of Gotham and Zach Galifianakis as The Joker. In the film, Batman discovers that if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, he may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
“The LEGO Movie” earned $469 million worldwide, and won an Academy Award for best original song for “Everything is Awesome.” A sequel is planned for Feb. 8, 2019, with another spinoff, “The LEGO Ninjago Movie,” set for release next year.
Arriving February 10, 2017, “The LEGO Batman Movie” is directed by Chris McKay from a script by Seth Grahame-Smith.
