LEGO Elves: Secrets of Elvendale Netflix series

The LEGO Elves story has been capturing the imagination of young and old LEGO fans alike since 2015, with beautiful LEGO sets and a magical story that has been playing out on the Disney channel. And now, LEGO Elves is coming to Netflix, with a new story, titled, LEGO Elves: Secrets of Elvendale. Below is the trailer and a bit more info about the new series. 🙂

Here is the official description of the Netflix series: LEGO Elves picks up with its hero character Emily Jones as she returns through the portal to Elvendale with her little sister, Sophie. After charming many of the Elves upon her arrival, Sophie is taken by the cruel Goblin King and his evil minions. Emily and her cast of Elf friends head deep into a magical forest to save her sister and free Goblin Village from its tyrannical king. Adding to the existing line-up of Netflix original series from The LEGO Group (LEGO Bionicle: The Journey to One and LEGO Friends: The Power of Friendship), LEGO Elves will launch worldwide on Netflix in 2017 with 8 new episodes.

Based on the description, it appears that LEGO Elves: Secrets of Elvendale is similar to the LEGO Elves: The Capture of Sophie Jones episodes (watch here), with Sophie following her big sister Emily into the land of the Elves, only to get captures by the Goblin King. It is interesting to note, however, that while the characters in the TV series resembled LEGO mini-dolls, the Netflix series uses more traditional animated characters.

LEGO Elves: Secrets of Elvendate will premiere on Netflix on September 1st, and will include the voice talents of Ashleigh Ball, Erin Mathews, Kyle Rideout, Vincent Tong, and Rebecca Husain. Below are a couple of trailers for the upcoming series.

While the animation of LEGO Elves: Secrets of Elvendale doesn’t look like LEGO, you can still recognize the characters, scenes, and places from the latest LEGO Elves goblin sets. If you haven’t checked them out already, you can find them all under the LEGO Elves section of the Online LEGO Shop.

What do you think? Have you been following the LEGO Elves story? And do you have any of the LEGO Elves sets? How do you like them? Are you going to watch LEGO Elves: Secrets of Elvendale on Netflix? Feel free to share your thoughts and discuss in the comment section below! 😉

It seems like they keep going back and forth about what kind of animation they want for Elves. If I recall correctly, the first season was regular animation, then the later seasons were with minidolls, and now we are back to regular animation. I wonder why they keep changing their mind.

Yeah, tell me about it! I don’t know why they can’t just make up their mind! 🙄

The switch to mini-doll character models wasn’t until this year’s webisodes, and after seeing the Netflix series I think the reason might have been to draw less attention to the quality difference between the new series by Studio Mir and the webisodes by Ja Film, who animated the previous webisodes and specials.

That’s seems to be a logical reason, although it still strange that they have used both versions.

Looks like both the animation and the voiceover is better than it was in the previous episodes. I don’t understand though why are they doing the same story with the goblin king kidnapping Sophie. They could have done something special for Netflix.

Netflix is a different audience, so they probably figured it would work. It is actually interesting to see the same story in two different animation styles.

I’m happy that they’ve gotten rid of the claw hands… They looked kinda weird…

The Elves story has been a hit or miss in both animation and story. I hope this will be more even. The sets, on the other hand, are consistently top quality and very enjoyable.

All Lego shows are pretty enjoyable compared to everything else that’s on tv for kids these days. So, I’m sure this will be fun too.

It’s coming in a few minutes. I had to hold it because of the embargo by LEGO. 😉

You can repost it in the other thread. Yeah, the Falcon does make you dazed, isn’t it? 🙄

Main accomplishment for today: learn the word “greebling”
Other accomplishment: order the Hoth set for $199
Next accomplishment: try to justify $800 for the super-millenium-falcon
