LEGOLAND Malaysia is having a brand new attraction, and it will allow you to enter the world of Ninjago with a brand new live show. Titled LEGO “Ninjago and the Realm of Shadows”, the puppet style show is inspired by the hit TV series “Ninjago – Masters of Spinjitzu” and brought to life with video mapping, illusion, stage effects, music, characters and of course puppetry. The scripting for the show is handled by award-winning Hollywood movie writers Kevin and Dan Hageman (who also wrote The LEGO Movie and the Ninjago™ TV series) and put together by a team of professionals hailing from seven countries.
The show itself runs for 20 minutes and features a total of six handcrafted puppets with each standing at about 1.2 meters in height.
LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort General Manager Mark Germyn states; “We are very proud to be the first LEGOLAND Park in the world to launch this attraction, and especially something of this scale. I’ve seen the work that goes behind the scenes, and we know that our visitors are in for a real treat – the mixture of technology with traditional Bunraku style puppetry is quite innovative and the storyline should be a thrill for the children.”
The story is set in the fictional world of Ninjago where the land is divided between Ninjago and the Dark Island, where the villainous Overlord resides. In the underworld dwells the Lord Garmadon and the Skulkins, along with many mystical and mysterious places hidden throughout he land. When the fate of their world is challenged by great threats, it’s up to the Ninjago warriors to defend their land at all cost.
The stars of the show are Ninjas Kai, Nya, Zane, Cole Jay and Lloyd who are on a mission to protect Bandit, a YinYang Dragon who is destined to one day grow into a powerful Light Dragon. Th Ninjas (and the audience) must work together to protect Ninjago from the evil Clouse and his Shadow Minions who want to steal Bandit and bring darkness onto the land.
LEGO Ninjago™ and The Realm of Shadows will open to the public at LEGOLAND® Malaysia Resort starting now and kids dressed as Ninjas from the age of 2 to 12 will get 50% off with any paying adult from 28 August to 30 September.
