The trailer features how the inhabitants of the NINJAGO City are terrified by Garmadon, who is The Worst Guy Ever, destroying everything and reveals a conversation between Lloyd and his mom, who tells him about how his dad was on they met. “So, when you guys got together, was dad always an evil warlord?” – asks the young boy. His mother says he “had so many plans, he was so ambitious” and that “he said he wanted to conquer the world”, but she thought it was a figure of speech. Because of his dad, Lloyd is an outcast by day and a hero by night. Together with his friends, he embarks on a dangerous mission, to take down Garmadon and make NINJAGO a safe place.
