Classic Disney animation meets contemporary urban chaos when a princess is banished from her magical animated homeland to modern-day New York. Princess Giselle (Adams) lives in the blissful cartoon world of Andalasia, where magical beings frolic freely and musical interludes punctuate every interaction. She is engaged to the handsome Prince Edward (Marsden) but her fate takes a turn for the worse when the villainous Queen Narissa (Sarandon) banishes her to the unforgiving metropolis of New York. As the cruelty of the big city begins to wear down the frightened and once carefree princess, she soon finds herself falling for a friendly but flawed divorce lawyer (Dempsey) whose kind compassion has helped her to survive in this strange and dangerous new world.

This latest chapter in the wildly popular children’s fantasy world of animated bricks is based on the ninja-themed set of LEGO toys. The film follows young Lloyd, aka Green Ninja (voiced by Dave Franco) who leads a secret, night-time band of ninja warriors to combat the wicked Lord Garmadon (Theroux) who is threatening Ninjago City. The warriors are just ordinary teenagers by day who have been trained in the art of ninja by Master Wu (martial arts legend Jackie Chan). There are further dastardly complications in that Wu is Garmadon’s brother and Lloyd is his son. Written and directed by a trio of animation doyens whose credits include Tron, Madagascar and How To Train Your Dragon, the action and storytelling as the moral and physical battles build to a devastating climax will delight LEGO-loving audiences of all ages.
