Pictures, Warner Animation Group and LEGO Systems A/S. The film opens in cinemas worldwide beginning September 22 in 2D and 3D.
“NINJAGO has captured the imaginations of kids around the world for years through building sets, a hit animated television series, and a roster of lifestyle merchandise, so we’re thrilled to introduce an amazing collection of building sets based on the highly anticipated film, The LEGO NINJAGO Movie,” said Jill Wilfert, Vice President, Licensing and Entertainment, at LEGO Group. “The breadth and variety of these toys, from dojos to mechs to subs – guarantees that NINJAGO builders will enjoy hours of action-packed building and play recreating – and hopefully expanding upon – the film’s story.”
Inspired by key moments, mechs and characters from the film, 15 building sets, ranging in price from USD 9.99 to 299.99, will be released both in advance of and following the film’s debut.
