In this big-screen NINJAGO adventure, the battle for NINJAGO City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret ninja warriors. Led by Master Wu, as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon, The Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd’s dad. Pitting mech against mech and father against son, the epic showdown will test this fierce but undisciplined team of modern-day ninjas who must learn to check their egos and pull together to unleash their inner power of Spinjitzu.

MOVIE REVIEW

My boys put together a few words about their thoughts post-movie…

“My son, Charlie, and I really had a great time with the LEGO NINJAGO movie. 

The LEGO NINJAGO Movie Press Event Recap and Review

It’s a great father/son story, and those always seem to get me right in the feels. I loved all of the nods to classic martial arts movies. When I saw the opening logos in the style of an old Kung Fu movie, I knew we were in for a good time. Then, Meowthra came on screen and I was in monster movie heaven.

Charlie is really picky when it comes to movies and he was glowing after watching this one. He’s been talking about it ever since. The cast was great and the comedy was perfect for the young and old alike. Kudos to Lego and the filmmakers for making a really fun and beautiful movie. We can’t wait to see it again!” 

PRESS CONFERENCE 

As a filmmaker himself, the press conference segment of the event was definitely Ryan’s favorite. With the whole cast and direction on board, including Jackie Chan, Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Olivia Munn, Kumail Nanjiani, Michael Pena, and Zach Woods!
