"The LEGO Ninjago Movie" is the film adaptation of the Dan and Kevin Hageman's popular television show, "LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu." The brothers, who also co-wrote "The Lego Movie," returned to the island of Ninjago for the film's adaptation. The film adaptation will stray from the original show, telling the story of six young ninjas set to defend their island home of Ninjago. At night, they're martial artists, defeating monstrous villains. During the day, they’re still teenagers, struggling against their greatest foe: high school.
"LEGO Ninjago" will strike theaters on September 22, 2017.
