By day, Lloyd and his ninja friends are ordinary teens struggling against their greatest enemy: high school. By night, they’re gifted warriors, using their skills and awesome fleet of vehicles to fight villains and monsters.
In The Lego Ninjago Movie we see Lloyd, shunned by everyone for being the son of an evil warlord, seek to defeat him with the help of his fellow ninjas. No one knows the evil warlord Garmadon (voiced by Justin Theroux), aka The Worst Guy Ever, better than his ex-wife, Koko (voiced by Olivia Munn), and when it comes to their son Lloyd (voiced by Dave Franco), the eternally optimistic mother just wants to help him survive adolescence.
Olivia Munn talks to Collider about why she wanted to be a part of The Lego Ninjago Movie, and why Koko was such fun to play…
Collider: What sold you on The LEGO Ninjago Movie and made you want to be a part of it?
OLIVIA MUNN: Well, I didn’t really have to be sold. I hadn’t seen LEGO Batman yet, when I signed on for this, but I had seen the first LEGO movie. What’s so great about the LEGO movies is that, from the get-go, they were made in a way that wasn’t just adult-friendly, but you don’t have to have a kid with you to go see them. They’re edgy and funny and clever. The toys are the toys, and I love that about these movies. It really allows for the actors to bring so much life to them, and I really love that. It was so much fun!
