Warner Bros. Animation continues their partnership with LEGO in 2016 with another full-length animated feature film using LEGO versions of DC Comics heroes. This time, the film focuses on Batman, giving fans a LEGO Batman movie to enjoy at home before The LEGO Batman Movie hits theaters next year. We have the first trailer for LEGO DC Comics Superheroes: Justice League: Gotham City Breakout here, revealing the film and its first details.
WB isn't ready to reveal the release date, yet, but the pedigree behind the film is substantial. Sam Register executive produces the film, with supervising producer Brandon Vietti and a script by Jim Krieg; you may recognize those names from previous LEGO DC Comics movies, Young Justice, Batman: The Brave and the Bold and more. Troy Baker, Nolan North, and Khary Payton all return to the voice cast, with Sarah Hyland lending her voice, as well.
WB Animation's full description follows:
Fighting crime is a full-time job and Batman NEVER takes a vacation. That is until he finally agrees to let Batgirl and Nightwing take him on a long overdue trip – leaving Gotham City under the watchful eye of the Justice League in LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes - Justice League: Gotham City Breakout.
When Batgirl and Nightwing take Batman on a trip down memory lane – literally – to visit one of the key mentors from his formative years, it's up to the Justice League to keep Gotham City crime-free. But neither situation proves to be a "vacation" as the Bat trio encounters old nemeses on their adventure, and the Justice League discovers just how busy Batman is on a regular basis. It's a brick-tastic battle on two fronts as Batman, Batgirl and Nightwing take on Bane and Deathstroke, while the Justice League – with some help from a few Teen Titans – fends off an assault by many of Batman's infamous adversaries to ensure Gotham City's safety.
