Warner Bros. Developing Movie Based on LEGO's 'Ninjago' Toy Line
It sounds like Warner Bros. is really excited with the reception of The LEGO Movie trailer (watch it here), because they're sticking with the building block brand for another venture. Heat Vision has word that Warner Bros. has hired Dan and Kevin Hageman, who have a story credit on the aforementioned animated film from Phil Lord and Chris Miller, to script an adaptation of LEGO's Ninjago toy line, set in a world inspired by Chinese and Japanese myths, culture and warriors, complete with a storyline involving ninjas, dragons and more. So why is this toy line special enough to be singled out over the other LEGO sets?
Well, Ninjago already has a Cartoon Network animated series called "Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu," which was also written by the Hageman brothers.The series follows Kai, the red ninja of fire and his adventures in the world of Ninjago. However, the film will go in a new direction from the TV series, and expand into the LEGO world even more. The toy line has evolved over the years from the previous ninja line, and turned into one of their most popular brands with young boys. This marks the second LEGO line to begin the journey to the big screen with Universal developing a Hero Factory movie as well. Thoughts?
