"The Weekend Drill"
Elemental Rider is the fourth short film from the Tales from the Monastery of Spinjitzu mini-series based around the ninja and Master Wu, taking place sometime between the ninth and tenth season of Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu.
The ninja’s work on the mural at the Monastery of Spinjitzu continues. But has Jay gone into some meditative trance? Or spontaneous self-hibernation? Nope, he’s just daydreaming about the time the ninja used their elemental vehicles to save NINJAGO City. Remember when Lloyd, Pythor and the Venomari (that sneaky snake tribe!) were stealing candy from the good folks of the NINJAGO® world? Well, if you don’t, maybe your memory can be enhanced!
