The LEGO NINJAGO Movie trailer breakdown

Until its release on September 22, Brick Fanatics will have to make do with salivating over the beauty and the wonder of the first LEGO NINJAGO Movie trailer

You can only see The LEGO Batman Movie so many times before turning attention to what’s coming next, so we have been freeze-framing the trailer to see what can be gleaned about The LEGO NINJAGO Movie.

Jackie Chan!

Master Wu is voiced by none other than martial arts and action film legend Jackie Chan. The NINJAGO team’s leader is described to be ‘as wise-cracking as he is wise’…

Enter Lord Garmadon

Enter Lord Garmadon

The NINJAGO team will face off against a formidable and familiar foe in Lord Garmadon. NINJAGO fans will note how he already has his four arms in place, as he assembles an army to ‘conquer NINJAGO’.

We get a couple of shots of the assembled secret ninja warriors, sporting some smart-looking ninja threads – check out those mechs in the background…

A New City

A New City

At first glance it looks like The LEGO Movie’s Bricksburg, but under attack is the City of NINJAGO, with design taking clear inspiration from the modern super cities of Shanghai and Beijing.

Holy Hopping Green Dragon

One of the standout shots is Lloyd’s leap from a truly magnificent rendering of his fabled green dragon, unleashing at the same time both epic awesomeness and our great hopes for this to be one of the movie’s tie-in LEGO sets.

Shark Attack

Shark Attack

The key antagonist is also certainly one for showmanship, as Lord Garmadon makes quite the grand entrance into destruction riding none other than a giant flying robotic shark.

L-L-O-Y-D

The film will play heavily on the relationship between Lloyd and his father, Lord Garmadon, at the same time as imbuing the story with the LEGO Movie Universe’s now firmly established brand of humour.

The LEGO NINJAGO Movie is set for release on September 22, 2017. In the meantime, you can get caught up on the current LEGO NINJAGO sets at shop.LEGO.com.

As one half of Tiro Media Ltd, I mix a passion for print and digital media production with a deep love of LEGO and can often be found on these pages eulogising about LEGO Batman, digging deeper into the LEGO Group’s inner workings, or just complaining about the price of the latest LEGO Star Wars set. Make a great impression when you meet me in person by praising EXO-FORCE as the greatest LEGO theme of all time. Follow me on Twitter @RobPaton or drop me an email at [email protected]
