The LEGO NINJAGO Movie inside scoop in Blocks 36

The latest issue of Blocks magazine is available to buy today, with a special behind the scenes look at The LEGO NINJAGO Movie.

To get the inside scoop on The LEGO NINJAGO Movie, Blocks magazine has interviewed the film’s Director Charlie Bean and star Dave Franco, who voices Lloyd. The talented Hollywood professionals share insight into the film making process.

The Blocks team has shared further information on this month’s issue:

Back in Billiund, the key designers behind The LEGO NINJAGO Movie take readers through the process of working alongside a major movie production, explaining the development of the sets, their contribution to the film itself and teasing a few little Easter eggs to watch out for on screen. Simon Lucas, Nicolaas Vás and Chris Stamp also provide a focused look at the development of 70620 NINJAGO City, demonstrating how it became the masterpiece that it is.


Daniel Konstanski is inspired by the amazing concept art that was designed for The LEGO NINJAGO Movie to build a massive version of NINJAGO City, taking cues from all of the different styles, colours and features that are found in the cinematic version. If readers think that Blocks magazine has gone big before, they have not seen anything yet.

Of course The LEGO NINJAGO Movie special would not be complete without reviews of the entire theme, giving readers some recommendations about which sets to put at the top of the must-have list. In our regular Technique section readers are spoilt for choice for brick bed designs, while Brick Wife is exasperated at the AFOL’s escalating polybag obsession – and of course, Month in LEGO keeps track of all of the key goings on in the world of the brick.
