The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu: Possession is the fifth season of the Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu series. Like its predecessors, this season has lots of fantasy violence and serves as a commercial vehicle for Lego Ninjago toys and games. However, loyalty, teamwork, and sacrifice are common themes, making this a solid choice for action lovers. The loss of a loved one also is a central theme in this series installment.
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.
