The Ninjago Movie Alphabet

If you have been watching the trailers and checking out the sets from The LEGO Ninjago Movie you may have noticed that they all feature a strange foreign language. Well that language is actually English, but with a special new alphabet designed by the LEGO Ninjago Movie team.

With the sets released people got to work on deciphering the language, but LEGO have made that a lot easier with a new website for the film – The site allows you to input a message using the standard English alphabet and then switch to the Ninjago alphabet (or vice versa).

I have also gone to the trouble of creating a handy guide that you can print out to translate sets as you are building them.

    Thank you so much for doing that Michael. I got my ninjago sets at discounted prices from ‘I’m rick James bricks’ (Melbourne), the moment they came out and have been trying to crack the code ever since.

    Thank you – this is really useful and will save me the time trying to work it out. I will print this out and have it up permanently I think!! I know some Japanese and this script really tricks my eyes, which is a bit annoying (I really want it to be proper Japanese!) but I absolutely love that they have created this script, especially as a fun and educational feature for kids.

    @KC I spoke to LegoAustralia. Apparently Marketing hasn’t decided who gets the exclusives yet.

    Growing up watching Ninjago this is actually really helpful, now I can go back to the series and actually read some of the signs on the building, I think this is really awesome

    I think you should change it. To Like “Ninjago Mandarin” I prefer a language, not a code.
