Despite (or because of) personal bias I don't see the appeal

"The Master: A Lego Ninjago Short" has obviously nothing to do with PTA's pretty good movie, but this one here is a five-minute animated short film from 2016 and it was played before blockbuster animation films in theaters recently. As I already listed the long title you know very well that this little movie here is animated Lego style once again as so many others these days, also Batman movies for example fairly recently. Here we have the story of a dojo master who needs to go up against a resilient little chicken as both try to get the letters (Lego style of course too) of their names on the wall to define the place and also the movie as a consequence. But every time they manage, one or two letters are missing and the other fights back. That's basically all the story there is, which is okay in terms of quantity for the runtime. But not really in terms of quality. For writer and director Jon Saunders it may be the very first work, but the voice actors in here are all prolific actors, big names even, which probably explains the popularity of this one. I personally did not enjoy it very much though. Then again Lego style animation has never been something I adored too much. Thumbs down.
