As we discussed last week, the LEGO Ninjago team was running a fun little treasure hunt, searching for fragments of a poster to reveal the name and some of the new and returning characters of the upcoming Ninjago show. The fragments are now all together, and the title is… drum roll, please… Dragons Rising! Below are the five fragments of the poster.
As you can see, Lloyd, Kai, and Nya are back, and the featured new characters include a ninja wearing golden armor and horns, another golden-armored figure wearing an Oni mask and wielding a hammer, a girl with pink hair wearing a hood with ears, and a baby dragon.
According to writer/producer Christopher Aaron “Doc” Wyatt, Ninjago: Dragons Rising is a new series, and not a follow-up or sequel to Ninjago Season 15: Crystalized. He posted on Twitter: “Same continuity, not a reboot, but 2023 was the end of an 11-year story cycle, whereas 2023 is a new series.”
IMDb, the online database with information related to films, the synopsis of the new series is as follows “The balance of the various realms has been upset and the resulting collision is wreaking havoc on Ninjago. The Ninjas must race against time to stop the destruction before it’s too late. To stop the destruction, the Ninjas must embark on a quest to find the Realm Weaver and destroy it before it’s too late. Along the way, they must navigate the dangerous terrain of the colliding realms and battle the various villains who seek the Realm Weaver for their own purposes.”
Ninjago: Dragons Rising will be released on June 1st in North America. You can already find a countdown timer on the official LEGO Ninjago page, and there are also a few teaser-trailers on YouTube. Watch them below.
