The LEGO Ninjago Movie is definitely creating a lot of excitement. The upcoming sets are already listed at the Online LEGO Shop (and are even available at some retailers ahead of the official August 1st release date), and both the first and the second movie trailer indicate that the film is going to be excellent. However that’s not all the Ninjago fun to be had. Recently LEGO also released a series of short episodes related to the LEGO Ninjago TV show, titled LEGO Ninjago: Wu’s Teas. 🙂
LEGO Ninjago: Wu’s Teas is a collection of twenty short episodes (approximately 1 minute 30 seconds each) that take place after the one-hour special from 2016 titled LEGO Ninjago: Day of the Departed, and before LEGO Ninjago Season 7: Hands of Time. The stories focus on Wu’s teashop called Steeper Wisdom, which is doing really well, until a new rival coffee shop opens across the street, drawing away the teashop’s customers. You can watch the entire series below. Expect lots of witty Ninjago humor!
➡ LEGO Ninjago Wu’s Teas Episode 1 – Secret Teas: The Ninjas are messing around in Master Wu’s new tea shop Steeper Wisdom and when they discover Wu’s secret stash of magical teas, Explosivi-tea, Hilari-tea and Anti-gravi-tea, they decide to test them out.
