Ninjago: Hunted

We finally have official confirmation for the title of 9th season. It’s Ninjago: Hunted. It sounds a bit short? In any case, the announcement comes from an official trailer posted by LEGO – this time in English! The trailer itself is different from the one we saw a few days ago, so it’s definitely worth a look. The trailer does contain spoilers, as does the text below it. Stop reading now if you do not wish to be spoiled.

What can I say… The trailer brought even more hype to me! Not to mention understanding (my Japanese is not that good – yet!). There are many more dragons shown. Elemental Masters are confirmed to play a significant role – they’re part of the resistance against Garmadon. Sons of Garmadon are still very much a part of the show – strange that they’re not featured in any way, shape or form in the newer sets. What’s not to like!


I’ve expressed my misgivings previously, if I’m not mistaken. As for the additional dragons and the lack of Sons of Garmadon in the summer sets, I’d say it’s another case of the show writers getting a framework from Lego and running with it.

Hopefully they will be expanded – I cannot see them making season 10 for winter and we will get new sets in December.

Well, there’s always a chance. For all we know the Sons of Garmadon/Dragon Keepers plotline could continue into the next season:

Let’s hope not 😀 3 seasons of SoG is too much.


I think that the reason why the SoG are not in the summer sets is because the SoG sets are still on shelves.

You’re most likely correct! I didn’t even think about that. It’s a perfect way to boost sales of previous season sets!
