When it boils down to it, all great shows come to an end. Ninjago is not an exception.
But why so soon? Why, after a mere three seasons (26 or 30 episodes) does Ninjago have to die?
It used to be that shows were respected, and generally stayed on for three or four years. If they had high ratings and popularity, as Ninjago did, then six or seven years.
But we've reached the WHITE FLAG movement of the animation industry. Let's face it, Cartoon Network's been beating its fanbase senselessly for the past five years. The downfall of Toonami, the loss of Cartoon Cartoons, the introduction of live-action "CN Real" and the (most recently) the complete disrespectful postponement of DC Nation.
So it's not much of a surprise that Ninjago ends so soon. CN just doesn't have the intelligence it used to.
What is true, and what is rumor? Is Chima replacing Ninjago? Will Ninjago ever come back? Was Season 4 just a fan's dream? Did Kevin Hickle speak the truth when he said Chima would make us wish Ninjago would've ended sooner?
Truth: Chima is replacing Ninjago, television-wise. However, in terms of LEGO sets, Ninjago will be promoted for one more year, and a new wave will be released in January.
Rumor: Chima is going to suck. Why? The LEGOs don't even LOOK LIKE FRICKEN' LEGOS!
Truth: Chima might actually be decent. If we're going by Kevin's words here, then it will be great! And the anthropomorphic LEGOs are still the same build and form, except each is different depending on their animal tribe (Bird, Lion, Crocodile).
Rumor: Season 4 is going to be about the Purple Ninja, Lord Garmadon will return.
Truth: I think everyone's realized by this point that Garmadon is good. And the Purple Ninja? Really?
Rumor: Chima will include Spinjitsu.
Truth: I have no idea. I honestly don't think so (not trying to create another rumor here!), but I do know some things about Chima. There are factions of animal tribes that once were at peace, but now are at war with each other. They are fighting over the power known as Chi, which is the source of all life, but can also lead to destruction. Legends of Chima focuses on the courageous few who know the truth about Chi, and those who want to kill them. (Source: Brickipedia [link]) Doesn't seem like there'll be room for Spinjitsu, but hey, you never know. We might get an Easter egg (I.E., the mention of Clutch Powers in "The Royal Blacksmiths" or the so-called Tornado of Creation in "The Empire Strikes Out.")
So, before you freak, before you write angry e-mails to LEGO, telling them they've made the biggest mistake of their lives, STOP. LISTEN. This is not the end of LEGO. Nor is it the end of Ninjago. In all likelihoods, I bet you we'll see Ninjago again in a few years. After all, Ninjago was based off a previous LEGO set known as Ninja. And Legends of Chima signifies that LEGO has officially gained a treasured place in Cartoon Network's tiny heart.
Which means we'll probably be getting LEGO cartoons for quite a while.
I'll see you all in 2013, watching Legends of Chima. Oh, and to save time, I recommend changing the name of this group to CNLego, just so all Cartoon Network LEGO shows can be found in one place.
Have a safe and glorious Thanksgiving. I hope your food is made by Zane.
Also, CN has fucked up big time with some of the amazing series' being taken off air. Examples: Kids next door, powerpuff girls, original pokemon, courage the cowardly dog, etc etc. take it from me, a nineties kid.
PS , ninjago was a canadian import, so it would depend on the voice actors still being willing to do some things also, because they work on shows too. Examples, Misako's voice actress did queen chrysalis and trixie from my little pony, and many of the voice actors did work on transformers the animated series.
Actually, I read online somewhere when we were on season two that the fourth season would have new evil and the purple ninja of wind was going to be Nya. It hints to it in an earlier episode when Sensei says to Nya that she'll have her chance soon enough when the ninja got their dragons.
In the last episode of Ninjago one I the ninja(I think it was cole) said something about the overlord and that theyll be ready if he ever "comes back" so maybe the overlord will make Garmadon evil again
