A LEGO NINJAGO short has been announced by Warner Animation to play before new animated movie Storks. The Master: A LEGO NINJAGO Short will debut on September 23, 2016 and will mark the first taste of what the cinematic world of NINJAGO will look like.
The Master: A Lego Ninjago Short is based on the Lego Ninjago series and features Master Wu, voiced by Jackie Chan, who gets into a conflict with Chicken, voiced by Abbi Jacobson. Justin Theroux narrates the story.

Ironically enough, the gamble to open attractions at the same time as their related films is a move that Legoland is more familiar with. At Legoland Florida, the area of the park opened around the same time as the new TV show debuted. The next major ride for Legoland Florida is an interactive based on the Ninjago line. Should the current rumors and plans at Magic Kingdom remain in place past the always present threat of budget cuts, the replacement for Stitch will see similar tech from what Ninjago uses.
Yeah, I think that was the plan. First Chima supposed to replace Ninjago, then it was Nexo Knights. But I don’t think LEGO fans look at them that way as they are very different. I only watched the first few episodes of the Nexo Knights TV show, and it just didn’t have the same impact for me as Ninjago. But that’ may be just me.
