My kids have got a new favourite TV programme.
Actually, they’ve had a new favourite TV programme every couple of days since we became part of the Netflix Stream Team. Today, they’ve been won over by the latest Lego kid’s TV program, Lego Elves : Secrets of Elvendale, new to Netflix in September 2017!
Netflix has a good range of Lego adventures in their catalog, and fans of those will notice that Elves doesn’t have the usual blocky characters. It’s a brave move, but it works well, and, as you’d expect, ties in perfectly with their range of Elves lego.
The background to Lego Elves is that a shy girl grieving over the loss of her grandmother is lost in a magical realm, where she enlists the help of four elves to get her back home. Series One of Lego Elves : Secrets of Elvendale is available on Netflix now. It’s a brilliant, rollercoaster ride and I couldn’t help but be reminded of Raiders of the Lost Ark with the music. A lot of work has been put into this!
If you are a fan of Lego TV programs, then Netflix will spoil you rotten! Here are the details of all of the Lego range available to watch.
The Specials – City, Batman and Jurassic Park
The oldest Lego special on Netflix is 2011’s Lego City. “Lego good guys use boats, fire engines, rockets and more to chase bad guys and fix problems in places like gold mines, city streets, space and parks.”
And then, in 2014, a cross-over brought Lego DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered to life. The very funny prequel to 2017’s Lego Batman movie is a blast!
2016’s Jurassic World – Indominus Escape has that brilliant Lego humour throughout and dozens of references to it’s real-life big brother, Jurassic World. A must-see!
The Ninjago range was launched in Christmas 2010 and since then has become insanely popular. The mix of ninjas and dragons have inspired two Masters of Spinjitzu specials (King of Shadows, Way of the Ninja) and a 3 seasons of Masters of Ninjago.
Another Lego range with it’s own series is Bionicle. Series one hit the screens last year, and both that and Series Two are available on Netflix.
2014’s Lego Friends was followed up with two series of Friends – The Power of Friendship last year. Five best friends face adventures side by side in their hometown. “Zany antics, love and missteps are better with friends!”
Fans of Lego are therefore well catered for on Netflix, with new releases being added as recently as this month. Kids are truly spoiled for choice on Netflix!
