In 2021, the LEGO Group trialled a new technology with a series of NINJAGO vlogs, as Jay and Nya explored a mysterious island. Since the final video, the technology hasn’t reappeared on the LEGO Group’s YouTube channel, until now.
Two videos showing Lloyd and Cole attempting their corresponding training minigames on the NINJAGO website have been revealed, and you can tell by the motion of the minifigures that this uses the same technology from the vlog series. For those who need a reminder, cameras and technology track the motions of actors and apply them to digital minifigures in real-time.
The twist this time is that the technology has also been combined with some of the original voice cast from the series. Out of the two videos uploaded so far, Andrew Francis and Sam Vincent have reprised their roles as Cole and Lloyd respectively. However, it’s not yet confirmed whether they were acting out the motion of the characters, or just providing the voices.
