What's the story?

LEGO NINJAGO: MASTERS OF SPINJITZU: HUNTED is the ninth season of the Lego Ninjago Master's of Spinjitzu series. Master Wu is gone, and Lloyd (Sam Vincent) and Nya (Kelly Metzger) must resist Emperor Garmadon's (Mark Oliver) takeover of Ninjago City. Meanwhile, the young Wu (Paul Dobson) and the rest of the original Ninjas are stranded on Realm of Oni and Dragons, and must find the mystical Dragon Armor if they ever want to get back. But they soon realize that the Iron Baron (Brian Drummond) and his barbaric gang are also there, and have evil plans of their own. 

Is it any good?

The latest installment of the franchise has all the mythical stories, action sequences, and evil characters necessary to create an entertaining action series. The Ninjas' energy is always high as they bravely fight against those who want to do harm. But the loss of their mentor throws them for a loop, and, as a result, they make their fair share of mistakes. But they're a loyal team and do what they believe is right in order to ensure that good triumphs over evil. If you're a Lego Ninjago fan, Hunted won't disappoint.
