Before Ninjago Dragons Rising Might Be One More “United” Tale to Test The Masters of Spinjitzu!

Because the title Ninjago Dragons Rising suggests that search for the Elemental Dragons to save the day, that’s all that matters!

LEGO Ninjago Dragons Rising call it the MergeComing to Netflix June 1, 2023

Two new Ninjago related series are coming and they are Ninjago United and Ninjago Dragons Rising! The former is designed to bridge the gap between sagas and the other is what showrunners Chris “Doc” Wyatt and Kevin Burke consider new! The adventures of the Masters of Spinjitzu is at an end, and according to the info presented at the Internet Movie Database (June 6 update: according to Reddit, this entry is fake news) is that the mini-series will see the team in one more adventure dealing with Krux and Acronix (from “The Hands of Time”). They are about to do the unthinkable–to merge the remaining realms to some megaverse–and afterwards, is Dragons Rising. In the aftermath, some residents are doing what they can to accept everything, but there’s much more calamity to transpire!

The trailer recently released is a teaser for what’s to come, and it’s fair to say the focus is definitely on a new generation of warriors to defend freedom. One warning must be said though, don’t look at the IMDB entry for this series. A lot of information is apparently spilled there. What I offer is information from only the trailer: Here, we learn many realms have been torn apart by a new threat, and just who is leading this cosmic Battleworld is with a panther type lord. And here, I insert the obligatory spoiler alert. Continue reading “Before Ninjago Dragons Rising Might Be One More “United” Tale to Test The Masters of Spinjitzu!”

Ranking The Five Best LEGO Ninjago Seasons and Bonus Videos from LEGO Group!

The Five Best LEGO Ninjago seasons to watch are listed here, and it’s sure to be debated on.

Five Best LEGO Ninjago Seasons Starting with the series that started it allAvailable to view on Netflix (worldwide) and YouTube

After two specials and sixteen story arcs, the two series that make up LEGO Ninjago–The Masters of Spinjitzu and Ninjago–is at an end. After doing many rewatches of this excellent series, I can finally say what are my Five Best LEGO Ninjago seasons to watch. The reason behind the separation is silly, since the naming convention is to distinguish which studio did what; but for a fan like me, it’s the same series and I prefer to acknowledge it as a whole unit.

I found my feelingx mixed when the end suggested the this team is retiring. Technically, the word is something else, but when considering all that’s being talked about within the fandom community on Reddit and other sources, this fact is certain. I’ve also expounded upon the last few seasons too when I realised I really love this series. As for what I feel may be coming next, I’ll explore in part two that will be published the following week. This list goes from least to best.

Season 1
Rise of the Snakes

Technically, the pilot and the first three seasons can easily be lumped together, since they follow one after another to a fitting finale. The reason behind including this set is because it establishes all the relationships going on between the Ninja and their allies. I’m glad the producers planned for a short series run, and when it became a mega success, they were then able to expand upon the world. This run offers a lot of hints at what would get developed in later seasons and they are easy to spot when rewatched.

Rise of the Snakes certainly sets the tone for everything that could come, and when they did after season four, oh boy, rewatching this arc is even all the better! Thankfully, newcomers don’t have to subscribe to Netflix to see this series. The LEGO Company has made the early seasons available to view free on YouTube (depending on country).

Lego Ninjago, Masters of Spinjitzu Season 9 is Coming! But is it The End?

NinjagoBy Ed Sum
(The Vintage Tempest)

* Mild Spoiler Alert
* This analysis is based on reading online episode summaries.

The wait should not be long for Season Nine of Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu to air in North America. It’s currently broadcasting in Australia, and nearby territories. The previous chapter, Sons of Garmadon, played April of this year in the States and left viewers with one doozy of a cliffhanger. Half of the team were tossed into the Realm of the Oni and Dragon. Meanwhile, back home, the remaining team are rallying resistance fighters.

Lord Garmadon is back and now rules the capital city with a clenched fist. The way he sees life (including his own minions) and that it’s all disposable makes him far worse than Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars. To defeat him will not be easy. He’s pure hatred. When his son confronts him, it gets televised and most of the world believes the boy is dead. Fortunately, the lad is not and the series bounces back and forth between this story arc and the ninjas with baby Wu trapped in a Mad Max type of world.

LEGO Ninjago Video Game Movie Shows off the “Stinging Bee!”

NinjagoBy Ed Sum (The Vintage Tempest)

Video game week continues with a quick look at the latest video released by Warner Bros. Interactive and Travellers Tale’s Games of the upcoming LEGO Ninjago movie. This newest trailer shows off some new moves of Lloyd and gang in the game due to arrive in shelves the same week as the movie, September 22.

This new teaser looks fantastic and has me excited to play TT Games’ products again. While I found past products repetitive, the same game engine with different franchise wrappings, this game feels different. I’m hoping I am right. This latest video features this team performing epic combat moves, such as the “Stinging Bee,” “Swooping Hawk,” and “Skyward Dragon” and upgrading their weapons to defend Ninjago City from Lord Garmadon and his Shark Army.

This game will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Loving the LEGO Ninjago Early Halloween Treat, Day of the Departed — A Review

Fans of LEGO Ninjago living in Canada were treated to an early broadcast on Oct 26 of Day of the Departed on Teletoon.

Fans of LEGO Ninjago living in Canada were treated to an early broadcast on Oct 26 of Day of the Departed on Teletoon. The American broadcast is slated for October 29, and it will most likely be on Cartoon Network. This animation continues after the events of season six where Nya was meant to die (a plot point to recall) but due to a wish, the event was undone. A few months have passed and Sensei Wu, Cole, Jay, Kai, Zane and Nya honouring their fallen comrades and respected ancestors in this world’s version of Halloween.

Technically, the time spent feels very much like Chinese Ghost Month being compressed to a night. During this year’s celebration, the moon is going to eclipse and will take on the look of yin and yang. This omen can bring either good tidings or mourning for all of Ninjago.

In the spirit world, the enemies have gathered to talk about what they want to do to Cole and team. Revenge is on their mind and each of them wants to take their grievance upon their mutual rival who sent them to the Cursed Realm. For example, Wu and Morro have a sordid history together. Wu recruited him and when the young warrior was in training, he believed he would become the Green Ninja. As most viewers know, that honour went to another lad.
