LEGO Ninjago movie coming in 2016!

by admin on May 29, 2014

in LEGO Ninjago

Here is some very exciting news for LEGO Ninjago fans that came out last week: the upcoming Ninjago movie by Warner Bros. now has an official release date scheduled. The Ninjago movie should hit theatres on September 23, 2016. Charlie Bean (“Tron: Uprising”) will direct the movie with Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller as producers.

LEGO Ninjago Movie Coming

The Ninjago movie was first announced to be in development last summer (see: LEGO Ninjago Movie Coming to Theatres! ). It is being written by brothers Dan and Kevin Hageman, who have also worked on the Ninjago animated series for Cartoon Network and The LEGO Movie – so we should expect some great adventure and serious fun. 🙄

As far as what the Ninjago movie is going to be about there is little information available right now. The only thing I have read so far is that the Ninjago movie is going to go in a different direction than the Ninjago series on Cartoon Network. So what will that look like? We just have to wait and see! Also, according to the first teaser-trailer (see video above) it seems there may be some tie-ins with The LEGO Movie. Hopefully more information will be coming out soon. In the meantime you can check out the currently available LEGO Ninjago sets at the Online LEGO Shop.

Shop LEGO Ninjago 2014 Sets

Since we are on the topic of upcoming LEGO movies, I might as well also mention that the sequel to The LEGO Movie (also produced by Warner Bros.) is scheduled for May 26, 2017. So we will get the Ninjago movie first in September of 2016, then 8 months later part two of The LEGO Movie. The LEGO Movie has been insanely popular and grossed over $460 million worldwide, bringing many people back to the LEGO hobby.

Are you looking forward to the Ninjago movie? What do you think it will be about? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! News, updates and rumors are welcome too. 😉

comes out the day after my birthday! 😀 cant wait!

Lloydguy May 29, 2014 at 10:30 AM

Sometime after my birthday, but YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

BLProductions May 29, 2014 at 11:04 AM

Exciting! 😀 I almost hope it is animated like the cartoon series, not stop motion-animation like the Lego Movie was. And I hope the characters at least act like they do in the TV series, not like super-serious ninja on skateboards.
Don’t the first 10 episodes have to hold in order for there to be a Green Ninja, though? Unless Sensei originally trained 5 ninja 😕 .

Crazybricks May 29, 2014 at 11:29 AM

I can’t wait I just hope all 5 ninjas are played by the same actors as in the tv show and that it follows the tv show story line at least a little

Hey also that means that Lego should continue making Lego Ninjago sets for a while

ninja of stealth May 29, 2014 at 11:59 AM

that was funny! at first when I heard it (on the message boards.) I didn’t believe it, but then when I watched this video (a few days ago.) I thought for a little while then I FREAKED OUT “aah! this is so awesome!” I literally started bouncing off the walls. and do you know what this means! it is official that Ninjago is going to continue in 2015! I mean come on, there not going to discontinue it for a year. 🙄 I still can’t believe that they are making one. I remember when they made the pilot episodes, all those years (three years. ) ago.

Meneldur May 29, 2014 at 12:01 PM

LOL! 😆 That’s a funny short! I definitely have to buy the LEGO Movie. BTW, Chris Pratt is playing Peter Quill (Star Lord) in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. That’s fun. And Morgan Freeman played Fox in the Dark Knight trilogy.
I wonder if LEGO will be creating more films in the near future besides these two.

NRG Cole May 29, 2014 at 12:07 PM

AWESOME!!!!!!! 😀

admin May 29, 2014 at 12:15 PM

That’s actually a really good point about the sets. I haven’t thought of that, but you are very right. Even if the story won’t be the same, I’m 100% positive there will be sets connected to the movie. So yeah, Ninjago sets should be around for quite a while! 🙂

admin May 29, 2014 at 12:16 PM

Yes, that makes a lot of sense about continuing Ninjago to fill the gap between now and the movie.

The Yellow Ninja May 29, 2014 at 12:53 PM

Yes!It comes out a few days after my birthday,and I’ll be sixteen. Maybe if I’m lucky I can my mom to let me go to the movies that day.Or maybe I’ll have a Ninjago themed Sweet Sixteen.(I’m seriously thinking about that.)

In other news, we’re having a culture study week in art, and we’re doing traditional Chinese lettering and symbols.I drew the four elements along with their names out to the side.Super cool!

NinjaMelissa May 29, 2014 at 3:01 PM

SO EXCITED!!!!! I CANT WAIT TO SEE MY ZANE ON THE BIG SCREEN!!! (Sorry, I’ve had A LOT of sugar within the last hour)

NinjagoNerd36 May 29, 2014 at 3:40 PM


admin May 29, 2014 at 3:52 PM

What do you mean your Zane?! Zane is mine! :mrgreen:

Majestic Kai Fan May 29, 2014 at 4:26 PM

I was thinking a ninjago themed sweet sixteen as well 😉

Majestic Kai Fan May 29, 2014 at 4:27 PM

If you check out my YouTube Channel Ninjago Crafter, I uploaded parts of episode 31 Enter the Digiverse

BLProductions May 29, 2014 at 9:27 PM

I gave in to my resolution not to watch, and watched them. Very interesting! 😐

Sailor Ninjago May 30, 2014 at 6:12 AM

Ooh ninja skateboards 😆 GO NINJA GO!!!!!!!!

Majestic Kai Fan May 30, 2014 at 6:55 AM

I’ll be recording episode 32 when it comes out on Monday

French-Ninja-Noodles May 30, 2014 at 10:53 AM

And do you know what is the name of the 32nd episode, or you’ll only know Monday ? And please have you a link for the schedule of CN Australia, on Monday 2nd ?

The Yellow Ninja May 30, 2014 at 11:55 AM

So excited!!!!!!My friends think I’ve gone completely insane,because I’ve been in the best mood ever! I so cannot wait for the movie!!

Lloydguy May 30, 2014 at 12:04 PM

NO!!!!!!!!! HE’S MINE!!!!!!!!!! 👿

Lloydguy May 30, 2014 at 12:05 PM

are you talking about episodes of new Ninjago! (That I missed 🙁 )

ninja of stealth May 30, 2014 at 12:45 PM

hey that’s what I was just think too! I really hope its the type of animation they use for the cartoon series too, otherwise it just wouldn’t be, Ninjago. I wonder what the movies going to be about, I heard it’s not going to be on the same line as the TV show.

ninja of stealth May 30, 2014 at 12:48 PM

Yo Meneldur! and when I saw the guardians of the galaxy trailer I noticed that too! and plus, I heard that they where making another LEGO movie in 2016 so either A (which is highly unlikely.) they make to movies in one year or B. the so called “LEGO movie 2” is actually the Ninjago movie. the Ninja go’s! 😀 that’s just what I heard.

ninja of stealth May 30, 2014 at 12:49 PM

hey I’m turning sixteen then too! whoa. 😯

admin May 30, 2014 at 12:50 PM

Just read the article above… all is expalined there as far as the upcoming movies. 😉

ninja of stealth May 30, 2014 at 12:50 PM

NO, your all wrong! I got here first (not really) so he’s mine!

ninja of stealth May 30, 2014 at 12:51 PM

whoa, whoa, whoa! if your recording them on Monday, when do they come out in the US?

BLProductions May 30, 2014 at 1:34 PM

Sadly, the US won’t get them until July from what admin said. Then the next two in September. 🙁 Right, Admin?

admin May 30, 2014 at 1:39 PM

Well, that’s what I heard through the rumor-vine. I have not seen any official announcement though in either way.

Majestic Kai Fan May 30, 2014 at 4:20 PM

The rest of the rebooted episodes are being aired on Cartoon Network Australia

Majestic Kai Fan May 30, 2014 at 4:22 PM
Lloydguy May 30, 2014 at 6:23 PM

I NEED NINJAGO NOW NOW NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

admin May 30, 2014 at 6:47 PM

I know you are excited, but please don’t do that with the gazillion !!! marks. (I edited them out.) It messes up the age and makes it harder for everyone else to read the comments. Thank you. Now back to Ninjago. 😉

Lloydguy May 30, 2014 at 7:23 PM

Oh, sorry 🙁 … was that the second time you did that to my comment? I thought I did earlier.

Aanchir May 30, 2014 at 8:44 PM

We already knew there would be Ninjago in 2015 because Cartoon Network confirmed that there would be new TV episodes in 2015 in a press release earlier this year.

admin May 30, 2014 at 10:18 PM

I may have. I don’t remember…

admin May 30, 2014 at 10:19 PM

Hm… somehow I missed that… at least I don’t remember it.

Majestic Kai Fan June 2, 2014 at 2:59 AM

admin June 3, 2014 at 9:22 AM

Good morning to you too! 😉

The Yellow Ninja June 3, 2014 at 4:15 PM

Okay,I’ve been thinking.Ninjago can’t come out on the thirteenth,because that’s a Sunday.It’ll be either on the 2nd,the 9th,the 16th,the 23rd, or the 30th.Those are all Wednesdays.I’m having a hard time keeping myself together.This morning I called my best friend Nya, my little brother Lloyd,and my mom became Misako.Um,awkward.

ninjagofan June 3, 2014 at 5:09 PM

lego lover 101 June 3, 2014 at 6:07 PM

I think it would be so cool if they made star trek legos

lego lover 101 June 3, 2014 at 6:10 PM

:] text you later! may the Lord bless you

admin June 3, 2014 at 9:04 PM

That makes sense as far as the previous schedule, but I think they changed it. The official LEGO calendar definitely says July 13th.

The Yellow Ninja June 4, 2014 at 12:12 PM

Okay…that’s weird. But who cares? At least Ninjago is coming on soon!

Tom June 7, 2014 at 1:25 PM

Don’t forget, there also may be that Hero Factory Live action movie.

Majestic Kai Fan June 8, 2014 at 5:13 PM

Ninjago episode 33 The Void comes out today

French-Ninja-Noodles June 9, 2014 at 10:04 AM

Hi Majestic Kai Fan !! Do you have news about “The Void” (if isn’t too much, can you tell us the plot please ? )
And do you know if the next episode is the 16th june ? Because there are rumors saying there isn’t titanium ninja…

Majestic Kai Fan June 9, 2014 at 4:20 PM

Episode 34 does come out on the 16th. So basically in episode 33 the ninja have stowed away on the Nindroids ship, Arcturus. Nya, Sensei’s Garmadon and Wu and Pixal are telling them to get space suits as their part of the ship will be disconnected. Seeming as Zane doesn’t need oxygen he goes and gets them, while trying not to be spotted by General Cryptor. He succeeds and the ninja get out of that part in time. (They look so op with their space suits on). The Nindroids discover the ninja on board when they scramble with communication signals. General Cryptor informs the Overlord and Pythor of the location of the signals being sent to the ninja. He then sends Nindroids to attack. The ninja battle them. General Cryptor gets angry and makes the remains Nindroids to get the ship to drive into an asteroid belt. They crash land on the planet where the golden weapons are. Meanwhile Pythor, Nindroids, Cyrus Borg and the Overlord break into Borg industries. Nya and co escape in time. Meanwhile the ninja follow Nindroids into the cave where the weapons are, everyone gets attacked by these metal eating bugs. The Nindroids run away with the weapons and there is an epic chase scene. The ship they were on gets destroyed by the bugs but the Nindroids get away by using the rockets in their legs. The ninja are stranded in space

BraydonBorg793 June 10, 2014 at 9:43 PM

Hey Admin, I have links to episodes 31-33, but they are in horrible quality, do you mind if I post them?

admin June 10, 2014 at 10:20 PM

Sure, that’s fine. We will actually be talking about Ninjago again this Saturday, so you may want to wait until then. But you are welcome to post them now as well. 🙂

american ninja August 16, 2014 at 11:40 AM

i love the ninjago stuff so much. i have all the ninjas in there first costume and lloyd and four arm garmadon along with abunch of towns people and star wars and harry potter

Green ninja September 2, 2014 at 6:58 AM

Where do I watch ninjago reboototed ninja in space

NinJAYgo Lover December 11, 2014 at 9:20 AM

Ahhhhhh my gosh I can’t wait until 2016!! Although it’ll be funny because the Ninjago movie is supposed to come out a few days before my Mom’s birthday xD Happy birthday Mom, you get to see this movie that you probably care nothing about! Yay! Ug, and then I have to wait ANOTHER year for the Lego Movie 2. I don’t think I’m going to make it. Maybe it will work out since I get to wait for new Ninjago episodes to post on the Internet (I don’t have Cartoon Network D: SO SAD!!) for all of 2015.

Jay Walker #1Fan December 23, 2014 at 6:00 PM

OMG, I wish that in the NinjaGo Movie it is about the Min Droids or Serpent Teen taking over the world and it’s up to the Ninja to save the world and all of humanity. And if Zane still needs P.I.X.E.L to do Spinjitzu?! Hopefully NYA DIES!!!!!! I would like to see that it is not constructed the way The LEGO Movie was – stop motion – this is not like NinjaGo TV Edition and this would be disappointing if this happens since NinjaGo is unique and wouldn’t be the same like that… I cannot wait to see Jay Walker and Kai Smith once again in action

Jay Walker #1Fan December 23, 2014 at 6:07 PM


Jay Walker #1Fan December 23, 2014 at 6:11 PM

Poor P.I.X.E.L and Zane

Jay Walker #1Fan December 23, 2014 at 6:13 PM

My friends think I’m upsessed with it and that I’ve gone made with Jay Walker – Just because I have a whole wall with him on it doesn’t mean that, right? RIGHT?

admin December 23, 2014 at 8:06 PM

Naw, there is nothing wrong with having a hobby. 😉

Ninja verde January 15, 2015 at 7:10 PM

True, lloyd Garmadon will have a girlfriend who will also ninja?

Sam February 15, 2015 at 12:38 PM

I think they will create a new enemy for the film. If they use skeletons …… Serpentine……Anacondri people will just disagree . New enemy = Happy days for all 😀

UltimateNinjagoLover February 19, 2015 at 2:13 PM

OMN Thanks so much for the info! I hope the ninjago movie will be as awesome as the 5 seasons combined! I can’t wait for the movie, hope it doesn’t disappoint me, it scares me when people say it won’t follow the plot line, so I hope it’s good. (Yes, I got a link to almost all the episodes in one safe video for everyone to watch, I didn’t make the video, but I just found it and also found it as interesting! Click my name to see them all, it’s not HD, but you want something than nothing right? if that doesn’t work, I got the link here too: )

admin February 19, 2015 at 4:18 PM

Nice! Thanks for sharing that! 😛

Ninjago of time March 5, 2015 at 11:27 PM

Every one is so excited about this new movie just including the sequal to “The Lego Movie” in 2017 and the “Ninjago Movie” sequal in 2018 so it’s going to be fun. Been supporting Ninjago since the beginning and “who believes they should bring back spinners to sell. YEY

So wait 2 years! But my plot is: the ninja are finding the powerful hem
