The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Themes include loyalty, teamwork, friendship, hard work, and gender equality and fighting sexism. Creating a strong sense of identity for oneself is also a strong message. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

The Ninja are loyal, but some sometimes get sidetracked by fame. They all consider Nya an equal member of the group.

Violence & Scariness

Lots of fantasy martial arts moves. Ninja take to the air, fight bad guys, and use superpowers.  

Sexy Stuff

Some innocent romantic tension between Nya and other members of the group. 


It's a long commercial for Lego Ninjago toys.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What's the story?

The sixth series in the Lego Ninjago animated franchise, LEGO NINJAGO: MASTERS OF SPINJITZU: SKYBOUND reveals a new season of crime for the teen ninja team to fight. Now that Kai (Vincent Tong), Cole (Kirby Morrow), Jay (Michael Adamthwaite), Lloyd (Jillian Michaels), Zane (Brent Miller), and Nya (Kelly Metzger) have saved Ninjago from the Cursed Realm, they are enjoying celebrity status. But an old nemesis has reappeared, and a new danger -- the evil of Nadakhan the Djinn -- poses a new threat. While Nya struggles with her identity as a female ninja, the rest of the team is learning to balance their pop star status with their responsibilities.

Is it any good?

This entertaining series offers a fun, action-packed story while staying true to the Spinjitzu saga. The teen ninja do what most teenagers do, including engaging in competitive behavior and struggling through (largely innocent) romantic entanglements. But they continue to fight for good while recognizing the importance of honor, teamwork, loyalty, and treating everyone in the group equally, regardless of gender.

Nya's personal struggles with how she is accepted by outsiders as the only female in the group leads to some important insights. And of course, Master Wu (Paul Dobson) and Misako Garmadon (Kathleen Barr) impart their wisdom along the way. As a result, Lego Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu: Skybound offers lots of adventure and some positive messages.
