Jackie Chan Is The Brain Behind The LEGO Ninjago Movie Kung Fu Fights

The Veteran Chinese actor, Jackie Chan has advised the production team of  The LEGO Ninjago Movie on the fight choreography, in order to get the fight right. The film director says that Chan wasn’t always interested in the task and didn’t see kung fu as something realistic in the LEGO form:

“He’s literally a kung fu master! Working with him was a rare honor. The first thing he did was move his arm in a really stiff way, and he didn’t think [LEGO kung fu] would work. So I showed him some of the tests we’d done, asked him to trust me and said to choreograph the moves as he would normally do them. Then we’d follow him and figure out how to interpret it in LEGO!”
