Trivia

  • The plot diverged from the television series. However, according to show Producers Kevin Hageman and Dan Hageman in a Tweet, the show designs will have some changes to match movie designs.
  • Following the tradition of other Jackie Chan movies, bloopers are included at the end.
  • The ringtone on Lloyd's phone is the theme song of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu (2011), on which this movie is based.
  • This movie was first hinted at in a bonus feature on The Lego Movie (2014) Blu-ray, called "Enter the Ninjago". In the short, an executive changes several scenes in The Lego Movie (2014) to feature Lloyd, because "kids love ninjas". Emmet suggests that instead of changing the movie to add a ninja, they just make a movie about ninjas, which the executive claims is a great idea. The rest of the short becomes a trailer for this untitled movie, which they claim would go on to be a major bomb at the box-office.
  • In the U.K. version, local television presenters Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard replaced the voices of Robin Roberts and Michael Strahan, respectively.
  • This is the second time Dave Franco has been in a Lego movie. He had a cameo in The Lego Movie (2014).
  • Lloyd asks if he can be the gold ninja instead of the green. In the television show, he actually becomes the gold ninja.
  • Lloyd is aiming at a bad guy on a bridge to save a school bus. When you see him aim you can hear the tune of "Everything Is Awesome" from The Lego Movie (2014).
  • When Master Wu (Jackie Chan) is holding the child's Lloyd figure, it only has one arm, which becomes a plot point later in the movie.
  • When Garmadon (Justin Theroux) shows the book he wrote, the cover features a volcano similar to the book Dianetics by L. Ron Hubbard.
  • During The Scene where the kids move to the other side of the bus when Lloyd sits down, Ferris Bueller from Ferris Bueller's Day Off can be seen on the Far Right Corner (his jacket and hair are a dead giveaway), and John Bender from The Breakfast Club can be seen at the back of the Bus (the one with The Mullet and The Jean Jacket). This scene is also reminiscent of Speed (1995), in which everybody had to move to one side of the bus to stop it from tipping over.
  • Each Lego movie has a bad father and needy son dynamic.
  • The second Lego movie to be released in 2017, after The Lego Batman Movie (2017).
  • The 1st theatrical Lego film to not have any DC Comics characters.
  • When Nya arrives on her bike in the school, she makes a slide like the one Kaneda makes in Akira (1988). This also imitates the way that Lucy (Elizabeth Banks) first operates the motorbike that she and Emmet (Chris Pratt) use to escape from Bricksburg in The Lego Movi (2014).
  • Sensei Wu is one hundred sixty-seven-years-old and Lord Garmadon is one hundred seventy-four-years-old in this movie.
  • The first Lego movie to neither have a Tomatometer of at least ninety percent, nor be certified fresh by Rotten Tomatoes.
  • Kumail Nanjiani and Zach Woods appeared on Silicon Valley (2014).
  • Olivia Munn is only five years older than Dave Franco, who voiced her on-screen son. However, since they voiced animated characters, their age difference doesn't matter.
  • Kumail Nanjiani and Michael Peña appeared in Hell and Back (2015).
  • Jackie Chan's second animated movie outside of DreamWorks Animation's Kung Fu Panda movie franchise, after The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature (2017).
  • Dave Franco (the voice of Lloyd), is married to Allison Brie, who provided the voice for Unikitty in The Lego Movie (2014) and its sequel.
  • This is the third theatrical movie based on a Cartoon Network show. The others being The Powerpuff Girls Movie (2002) and Star Wars: The Clone Wars (2008).
  • The last Warner Animation Group film to feature Warner Bros. Pictures logo with "A Time Warner Company".
  • The second-to-last film in the LEGO Movie franchise to be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
  • Joseph Bologna's last film before his death on August 13th 2017 at the age of 82 due to pancreatic cancer and this film was dedicated to his memory.
  • Deleted scenes (on DVD) have a full fight scene of Green / Lloyd in Jackie Chan style (jumping, rolling, using furniture) which was originally what attracted Chan to sign on: a smidgen of it is left in the released film, in Lloyd's aspiration sequence where he (Green) uses a fridge-freezer (door) against a Garmodan minion.
  • Main trailer shows some aspects not in the final film: most significantly, the married couple running from Garmadon's attack machine, and when the Ninjas' machines return to base (warehouse), Red (Fire)'s is shown first turning (á la Transformers' style) into a giant armchair for him to rest in.
  • As Master Wu drifts down the raging river, Nya says she thinks he said they had to find inner peace. Inner peace was a key plot element in Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011), which also featured Jackie Chan.
  • One of the two theatrical movies based on an animated television series of 2017. The other being My Little Pony (2017), which also featured Michael Peña.
