“In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure: “The LEGO Batman Movie.” But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.”
Directed by Chris McKay, the film features the voice talent of Will Arnett as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Zach Galifianakis as The Joker, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth, Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, Mariah Carey as Mayor Grange, Billy Dee Williams as Harvey Dent/Two-Face and Michael Cera as Dick Grayson/Robin.
