In this big-screen Ninjago adventure, the battle for NINJAGO City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret ninja warriors. Led by Master Wu, as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon, The Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd’s dad. Pitting mech against mech and father against son, the epic showdown will test this fierce but undisciplined team of modern-day ninjas who must learn to check their egos and pull together to unleash their inner power of Spinjitzu. The film is loosely based on the Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu animated TV series. The show is set in the fictional world of Ninjago, a place inspired by East Asian myths and culture. The land is divided between Ninjago proper and the Dark Island, where the Overlord formerly resided. It has an underworld, where beings of evil like the Skullkins dwell, together with sacred places where many things are hidden or forgotten. Similar to Lego’s past product line Bionicle, the main characters are in tune with certain elemental properties (the elements in this case being Fire, Earth, Energy, Ice, Lightning and Water).
The Lego Ninjago Movie marks the feature film directorial debut of Charlie Bean (“Tron: Uprising”).
The Lego Ninjago Movie is produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller and Roy Lee, who previously collaborated on the worldwide box-office phenomenon . We are now into our third feature film based on the LEGO construction toys…who would have thought! It still amazes me how much I like the first Lego Movie. I thought it was going to be lame, but I was pleasantly surprised how good it was. I still am waiting to see how well turns out and now I have my hopes up for this one too.
