Warner Bros. Pictures is putting together the pieces for the next installment in the Lego franchise.

Ninjago, a spinoff of the hit The Lego Movie, has been given a Sept. 23, 2016 release date. Warner Bros. previously announced that The Lego Movie 2 will hit theaters May 26, 2017.

The animated 3-D action-adventure is inspired by the popular ninja line of Lego building sets and minifigures. The characters previously starred in Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, an animated series on Cartoon Network, and the first Lego film.

Ninjago will be directed by Charlie Bean, who was behind the animated series Tron: Uprising, and produced by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who wrote and directed The Lego Movie. The Ninjago screenplay is being written by Bryan Shukoff and Kevin Chesley.
