Great news! Although the wait for the tentatively named, “The LEGO Movie 2” is epicly long, hardcore LEGO fans now have another reason to add to the LEGO cinematic universe excitement. Why? Because Warner Bros. they have another LEGO movie in the pipeline, set for a 2016 release.
What is this “other LEGO movie” we speak of?
Although only younger LEGO fans might be more familiar with it, you might’ve seen some little colourful ninjas in “The LEGO Movie”. Yes, they’re from none other than the line of minifigs and the Cartoon Network CG series called, “Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu”. Currently in its third season, the series follows a quartet of elemental power-based ninjas as they face off against the villain Lord Garmadon and the Skeleton Army.
There are also pirates, because of course there are pirates.
The question is, will the two simultaneous projects (“The LEGO Movie 2” and “Ninjago”) clash with each other’s development?
Let’s take into consideration that although Phil Lord and Chris Miller got screenplay credits for “The LEGO Movie”, it was based on a story developed with Dan and Kevin Hageman aka the creators of “Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu”. The same mastermind pair has already submitted a story treatment for “Ninjago” while Phil Lord and Chris Miller will stay on as producers. We’re guessing all is well in that universe, then?
Here’s what “Ninjago” might kinda sorta look like:
Meanwhile, keep ‘em LEGO movies coming! “Ninjago” is set for a September 2016 release.
