Positive Messages

Teamwork, loyalty, patience, and coping with loss are themes.

Lots of martial arts moves, including kicks, flips, and people getting knocked down. Ghosts possess people and things, making them scary.

Nothing sexy, but there are romantic tensions and jealousy between members of the group over Nya.

Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu: Possesion

THIS SEASON IS AWESOME!!! Only a little more scary then the other seasons of the show but still AWESOME! HECK HOW DID THEY MAKE IT SO GOOD?

What's the story?

LEGO NINJAGO: MASTERS OF SPINJITZU: POSSESSION  is the fifth season of the Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu series. While Master Wu (Paul Dobson) is building up his tea farm business, Lloyd (Jillian Michaels) struggles with the loss of his father. While on a solo mission, he walks into a trap that results in him being possessed by Morro, a ghost that has escaped the Cursed Realm. Kai's (Vincent Tong) younger sister Nya (Kelly Metzger) joins the rest of the teen Ninja as they attempt to stop Lloyd from cursing the Sixteen Realms at the Tomb of the First Spinjitzu and releasing Morro's master, the Preeminent. As if this isn't hard enough, they're also learning the art of Airjitzu. 

Is it any good?

Like its predecessors, this latest installment of the energetic franchise features the young Ninja team pulling together to save Ninjago from destruction. Like most teenagers, the crew loses patience and bends some rules, but Master Wu is there to remind them that wisdom comes with time, obedience, and experience.

Fans of the series will enjoy the story, but younger kids nervous about ghosts may get a little jittery during certain scenes. It’s not particularly educational either. But Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu: Possession offers a story that underscores the importance of patience as well as teamwork. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what makes the Ninjago franchise so popular. Is it because it's based on Lego characters? The stories? The action? 

  • How can a TV show promote things to viewers without directly telling them to buy them? Does Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu: Possession do this? If so, how?
