- Wu, the Time Twins, Borg Tower, Dragons, the Prototype X-1, and young Garmadon are all featured in the trailer, as well as several different art styles.
- The Prototype X-1 resembles its Legacy variant.
- During the Prototype X-1's scene, Kai is driving, but when he opens the front section, Nya comes out, riding the bike.
- The Prime Empire music is featured in the trailer.
- According to Chris Wyatt, they worked with different animation studios from around the world to make the short films.
- Wu's young look is a combination of his Honor robe and Teen Wu's design from Hunted. This look is very similar to his look in Spinjitzu Brothers.
- The trailer briefly appears to show Wu aboard the Iron Doom, but with his younger, teen appearance.
- This implies he is de-aging while on the Iron Doom.
- It also shows Wu and the Time Twins fighting outside of the Monastery at the same time as child Wu and Garmadon. This may mean they are warping into different time periods.
- According to Tommy Andreasen, the musical piece for the trailer was recorded the day before the trailer was released.
- The "Wu vs Time Twins" short is based off a fan's idea, as part of beta testing for LEGO World Builder.
- This is similar to Marvel's What If...? series. Both are upcoming 2021 animated anthologies based on existing franchises, and both consist of episodes showing "re-imagined" or "spin-off" stories from the main story line.
