LEGO Ninjago movie coming to theatres!

by admin on July 14, 2013

in LEGO Ninjago

You have probably read the news and seen the trailer of the upcoming big-screen film simply called The LEGO Movie (see: The LEGO Movie – Coming to Theatres Soon!). The trailer has been playing in theatres as well. I can’t wait! And, there is more! Due to the very enthusiastic response to The LEGO Movie trailer, Warner Brothers decided to start working on another LEGO movie, based on… drum-roll, please… LEGO Ninjago! 🙂

LEGO Ninjago Movie Coming

The screenplay for the LEGO Ninjago movie will be written by the brothers Dan Hageman and Kevin Hageman. They have also worked on The LEGO Movie and the Ninjago animated series for Cartoon Network. Although not much detail is available on the upcoming Ninjago movie, here is Jason from the BrickShow summarizing what is known.

Awesome, isn’t it? I expect the LEGO Ninjago movie to do really well as Ninjago has been a huge success for LEGO – both the sets and the animated series on Cartoon Network. I guess we will have lots of Ninjago goodness starting next year with the continuation of the animated series, new sets, and the movie! Ninjago fans should be very excited! 🙄

And there is more good news; Amazon has discounted many of the currently available LEGO Ninjago sets, so if you have been waiting to pick them up this is your chance! Some of the sets are as much as 25% off! Also remember that Amazon offers free shipping on orders over $25, and no tax to most states. Which just makes this sale even sweeter! Here are the deals:

So what do you think? How do you like the idea of the LEGO Ninjago movie? What do you think it will be about? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! NINJA… GO! 😉

I already written an article for tbc and it sounds amazing! What could be better than a LEGO movie?! Oh yeah… a Ninjago movie! Lets go Ninjago! 🙂

Fikko3107 July 14, 2013 at 10:28 AM

*Sniffle* I miss Bionicle. If this is real, this makes it the second physical theme to be made into a movie. Yep, I miss Bionicle.

admin July 14, 2013 at 10:43 AM

Ahhh… that’s sad. 😥

Legoman640 July 14, 2013 at 1:26 PM

I miss it too. Why doesn’t LEGO bring back Bionicle since they’ve fixed the issue with the Bionicle figures?

Legoman640 July 14, 2013 at 1:31 PM

I don’t mean to be off topic but….. Fikko,could you make instructions for that gorilla robot that was in your robot MOCs article?

I thought you didn’t usually post on Sundays.
Awesome topic to make an exception for.
I can’t wait to show my son tomorrow!

admin July 14, 2013 at 8:19 PM

Kristina, I actually have been posting 7 days a week for some time now. So yeah, don’t miss out on the weekend news. 😉

stewbrick901 July 14, 2013 at 9:01 PM

I saw in The LEGO Movie trailer that the Green Ninja (Lloyd) will be making an appearance. More reasons to go and see both movies!

Meneldur son of Garmadon (:lol:) July 14, 2013 at 9:23 PM

Whew! Haven’t been on here in a while. That was a wonderful Brick Breakdown by William on Orthanc. I was wondering if he was going to do it. And this news–it’s neat! Wow! LEGO has come a long way.

admin July 14, 2013 at 10:16 PM

Yeah! 😀

admin July 14, 2013 at 10:16 PM

Long, time no see! Yeah, there is always awesome news in the world of LEGO! Not like the real news! 🙄

Crazy Bricks July 14, 2013 at 10:47 PM

Oh, thank god. That’s an easy one. I could easily recreate that. I’ll get back to you shortly.

JAY THE ULTIMATE NINJA July 15, 2013 at 1:42 AM

TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They should also make a ninjago game for like Xbox and playstation. Like the others such as batman 2: heroes unite, and lord of the rings,etc,.

JAY THE ULTIMATE NINJA July 15, 2013 at 1:45 AM

I don’t believe they could ever shut down ninjago. It’s like the most popular lego subject ever

Fikko3107 July 15, 2013 at 4:46 AM

I’m pretty sure someone in the past have ever said something like “I don’t believe they could ever shut down Bionicle. It’s like the most popular LEGO theme ever.” Reality? It did got “Shut Down”. So I wouldn’t get your hopes up…

Håkan July 15, 2013 at 6:53 AM

Most themes get shut down constantly, and the evergreens regularly get revamped.

de521 July 15, 2013 at 9:58 AM

That’s so funny, I mentioned this a few days ago, and now its up on the site. Awesome

admin July 15, 2013 at 10:00 AM

The interesting thing about Bionicle though that even though it was popular, by the last year it was still in production they stores couldn’t even give away the sets for free. There was a generation that grew up on Bionicle who was getting older and the new generation just didn’t get into it. That’s why it was stopped.

LEGO didn’t want to make the same mistake with Ninjago, so they stopped it at the hight of its popularity. But it was still too popular so now they are trying to bring it back. So one was stopped too late, the other too early. Maybe one day they will get it right.

But to their defense; making decisions like this is not easy. You just can’t predict the best timing to get in and out of the market. There are just so many variables. If we could, we would all be getting rich in the stock-market. 😉

saad July 15, 2013 at 11:52 AM

I’m back!

If this is going to happen what year will it be released. 2015 at earliest. Maybe we will see a sneak peak of the trailer at the end of the new series of ninjago. Although the green ninja was in the lego movie for a bit…

ninja of stealth July 15, 2013 at 12:04 PM

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS TOTALLY EXCITING! but anyway, I just thought. so wait a minute, LEGO NINJAGO movie and the show on cartoon network. what if its one or the other. what if when we saw the poster of when there coming back. what if the poster was for the movie. Or. What if it is both! what do you guys think?

ninja of stealth July 15, 2013 at 12:07 PM

same here DX ZX KENDO NRG PWR JAY-MOUTH OF LIGHTNING! by the way your name is pretty cool 😀

ninja of stealth July 15, 2013 at 12:08 PM

yeah just think… it started with an idea! I simple idea… and now there making not one, but two movies! 😀 😀 😀

ninja of stealth July 15, 2013 at 12:10 PM

yeah! that is a great idea jay the ultimate ninja! (I just say your full name so you know that i’m talking to you 🙂 )

ninja of stealth July 15, 2013 at 12:11 PM

”here here!” ”you said it!”

llg52 July 15, 2013 at 3:22 PM

Please be live! Please be live! Please be live!. Ha ha ha HAAAAA WOW!!!!!!! (I want to be in it) why am I whispering? I don’t know! I WANT TO BE IN IT!!!!!!!!!!!
(not that I’m excited or anything)

llg52 July 15, 2013 at 3:25 PM

Better to leave them asking for more, my mom always says.

-random wise saying

admin July 15, 2013 at 7:16 PM

Hm… that’s a very good question. I think it is going to be both, but I could be wrong. Or perhaps we will get the new episodes next year, and the movie in 2015? That was Ninjago would be stretched out to two more years. 😛

Håkan July 15, 2013 at 8:03 PM

Maybe I am too old, but I don’t understand the appeal of Bionicle compared to other constraction ball joint-based themes – primarily Hero Factory. From my personal viewpoint it seems to be mostly the same thing (although it could be compared to how “Star Wars” is ‘mostly the same thing’ as “Space”, or “Lord of the Rings” is ‘mostly the same thing’ as “Castle”).

Is it the nostalgia, the complex storyline, or what?

Also, Ninjago is actually one out of nine of System- and Conflict-based sets currently under production; Castle, Chima, Lone Ranger, LOTR, Ninjago, Space/ Galaxy Squad, Star Wars, Super Heroes, TMNT – so its long-term fate would still be a matter of debate…

NyaZX10 (The ROBLOX user) July 15, 2013 at 11:27 PM

@fikko your right… But hope they will NOT shut down NINJAGO…

Hope & Love girl <3

NyaZX10 (The ROBLOX user) July 15, 2013 at 11:31 PM

😆 cx lol!! Oh and YAY I’M OFF TEH BLACKLIST! IT HAS BEEN A HALF YEAR XD no really it is has been a helf year, but guess what im doing on this ”half year” ? I’m been playing ROBLOX and i made so many friends and BFFs (Best Friends Forever) and so mush more and i won 15 fashion shows and i made a group and music group and stuff! and i made games!

Fikko3107 July 16, 2013 at 5:35 AM

Bionicle was arguably more renowned as a story, then the sets. The story was just so thick and compelling that it drove sets to great extents. Think of it as a licensed theme, only it was created by LEGO themselves. And yes, Bionicle holds a very special place in the hearts of many TFOLs and young AFOLs worldwide…

Håkan July 16, 2013 at 6:36 AM

Alright. Thanks for your reply.

admin July 16, 2013 at 8:46 AM

Hakan, I’m not the best person to tell you about the appeal of Bionicle. Ask Fikko – he is the expert. I do know however that it has been a very popular theme. In fact I read in a LEGO publication that in Russia it was the most popular LEGO theme ever. It had to do more with the story than the sets. But again; ask Fikko.

As far as bringing back Ninjago, it is somewhat of a gamble as kids are very fickle and they grow up fast. Something they liked two years ago may no longer appeal to them at all. We shall see… the toy-market is a really interesting and highly volatile area. That is one of the reasons why so many toy makers (including LEGO) are piggypacking on popular movie franchises. It is safer. 😎

Jaygirl July 16, 2013 at 11:43 AM

: O THIS IS SOOOO AMAZING!!!! CAN’T WAIT!!!! I should have my learner’s or full drivers license when it comes out so I’ll be like “YOLO I’m driving to see Ninjago in theaters! XP” Animation or live action hmm? TBH I would like to see live action! It would be soooo cool ^.^ Either one would be awesome though! 😀

Darkon July 18, 2013 at 9:54 PM

Can’t say I’m surprised. Ninjago was a very successful theme. Season 4 will probably run fron November 2013 to sometime in Spring 2014. Then the movie will be released November 2014. That’s usually how it works. As far as how long Ninjago will be around, I’d say until 2016. It has two more good years left, but no theme lasts forever. Bionicle lasted 10 years. It’s the 5th longest lasting theme, right behind Star Wars, Space, Castle, and City. What I really want to know is how much longer Chima will last. I’m still afraid that their won’t be a wave 3 in January 2014. 🙁

admin July 19, 2013 at 8:42 AM

I hope you are right (in regards to Ninjago). As far as Chima, we shall see. I think we will know how popular it can become once we see the effect of the TV series. Based on that LEGO may decide to contine the theme, or not. I’m not sure how does that work though; can they cancel a theme, or just stop production and try to sell the sets they already have in stock with gradually decreasing prices.

There are two things I can tell you from personal experience and they are kind of contradictory; at my local stores Chima sets are just sitting on the shelves. I don’t know if this is the result of people not buying or having a huge overstock. On the other hand here at TBB our most visited pages have been Chima releated ever since the theme came out. Right about the same as Ninjago. So it gives at least some indication that the theme must be popular with someone. In regards to all internet searches (not just our website) 6 times more people search for Ninjago than Chima. Chima has the same number of global searches as LEGO Lord of the Rings. However locally (meaning USA alone) more than twice as many people search for Lord of the Rings – meaning; Chima looks to be more popular in other countries. 😉

Skales (the Ssssnake King has returned!) July 22, 2013 at 11:39 AM

Amazing 😀 Ninjago is really popular.

NinjaMelissa July 22, 2013 at 7:57 PM

Yeah!!! Bring on the wave of Ninjago!!! I was thinking about the Balance, of how there needs to be the good guys (the Ninja) and the bad guys (the Overlord and Garmadon) but now Garmadon is good and the Overlord is gone… so who’s the bad guy now?

Cragger the prince of Chima July 25, 2013 at 8:18 PM

They said in the season 3 finale that the Overlord will be back. And since this talk about Nin-driod’s has started, maybe the Overlord creates an army of Nin-Droids to threaten the ninja and holds Zane’s father as prisoner?

Fangtom The Return July 29, 2013 at 11:18 AM

Any comments on what actually might be in the movie?

admin July 29, 2013 at 3:24 PM

No, nothing yet, and probably we won’t hear anything for another year. They have only decided to start working on a Ninjago movie after the positive reaction to The LEGO Movie traier. That was only a couple of weeks ago.

NRG PYTHOR July 31, 2013 at 5:08 PM

It’s really exciting to see all of this new ninjago content coming up! I cant wait until we get pictures of the sets and minifigs 🙂

radianthippitycube August 1, 2013 at 6:51 PM

Awesome. Does anyone know when it will be released?

admin August 1, 2013 at 9:20 PM

My guess is that the earliest would the toward the end of 2014, or sometime in 2015.

nom-nom August 5, 2013 at 12:16 PM


CraggerThePrinceOfChima August 10, 2013 at 11:11 AM

Lego probably won’t shut down Ninjago. I have an explanation! It is the most popular theme ever and shutting it down when it was only in Lego for 2 years? I don’t think so. Other themes such as Star Wars have been going for more than 10 years! And, it’s not the most popular theme in Lego. It’s one of the most popular themes but not the most popular single theme in Lego. And I’m thinking the new Ninjago sets would be released in the summer of 2014 and we would get a peak at them at Toy-Fair in February. The TV show will start on December 18th and probably end somewhere in March. (My guess)

admin August 10, 2013 at 11:33 AM

Sounds pretty reasonable. 🙂

CraggerThePrinceOfChima August 11, 2013 at 11:03 AM

I also see another reason that they can’t shut down Ninjago: Ninjago has no problems like Bionicle!

CraggerThePrinceOfChima August 11, 2013 at 11:04 AM

But also, if they shut down Bionicle, Hero Factory is the same exact thing only more kid relevant…why don’t they just bring back Bionicle now since the problem is resolved?

Super ninjago fan August 18, 2013 at 7:34 AM

WHAT?!?! after “The lego movie” there will be another FILM OF LEGO NINJAGO?!?! And then on television NINJAGO WILL CONTINUE IN 2014!!??!! BEAUTIFUL!!!! FANTASTIC!!!! AWESOME!!!
and finally: GO NINJA GO!!!

ALONSO31 August 28, 2013 at 12:36 AM

Im excited to hear more about the movie

NinjaMelissa September 13, 2013 at 8:49 PM

The Ninjago expert November 27, 2013 at 11:35 AM

I deffinately want to see this Lego Ninjago movie! I’m all over it! As soon as I find it’s trailer on the internet, i’m gonna mark down dates in my calender! All I know is that it’s gonna come out in 2014. I got a grand idea for the Lego Ninjago movie to swipe off any ninjago fans feet! I hope they do a contest to see who comes up with the most interesting idea for the Lego Ninjago movie! That would be great.

I agree with Crymson1

The Golden Ninja (Sarah) February 9, 2014 at 11:38 PM

I’m excited 😀

Rattle Shake February 14, 2014 at 10:55 PM

I doubt it. There has not been any trailers in the theater or on the internet and its ALREADY VALENTINES DAY. I saw the LEGO Movie I loved it, but anyways there was no trailer for the Ninjago Movie in that either. So don’t get your hopes up.

admin February 15, 2014 at 9:36 AM

What I have heard is that it is going to be sometimes in 2015-16, something like that. So yeah, quite a while from now.

Rattle Shake February 16, 2014 at 9:59 PM

Oh okay. By the way if there making a Ninjago movie they should make one of CHIMA. But I guess its okay because they have the 4D adventure.

ninja5 April 24, 2014 at 1:12 PM

Has anyone besides me noticed that the Lego movie coming in 2017 is probably the ninjago movie? They said the next movie, not necessarily a sequel to The Lego Movie.

admin April 24, 2014 at 2:07 PM

There is a sequel to The LEGO Movie coming in 2017. My understanding is that the Ninjago movie will be earlier than that, more like in 2015-16.

BraydonBorg793 May 26, 2014 at 4:02 PM

Ninjago: The Movie will be released on Sept. 26th 2016
The Lego Movie 2 will be released on May 26th 2017 (Exactly 3 years from now).

BraydonBorg793 May 26, 2014 at 4:03 PM

Sorry, Ninjago: The Movie is coming on September 23rd 2016, not the 26th.

Thefoldninjago October 13, 2014 at 10:53 PM

OMG They better not make Lloyd get a GF cuz if they do I am gona diee

UltimateNinjagoLover February 19, 2015 at 2:23 PM

^XD IKR, but honestly, some people have secretly found out that he may like Nya. No signs of her liking him, but it looks like they are always together and give each other these looks XD. Also, he seemed kind around that girl who was the master of form in season 5 though she was completely against him XD, forget which episode number but I know it’s called Ninja Roll, you can find out in by clicking on my name to take you to a link to watch all season 5 episodes but one, bummer. I don’t know, but I’m kind of hoping for him to find himself someone, it would be funny and kind of interesting to see how he would treat a girl he loves. It’s kind of hard to watch knowing he is so darn handsome but still doesn’t have a girl yet! It’s kind of weird, but I feel good for everyone who dose have one.

UltimateNinjagoLover February 19, 2015 at 2:26 PM

Yes! I don’t got to wait 3 more days XD!
