The LEGO Group’s newest animated action comedy series, Legends of Chima, will be premiering on the Cartoon Network on July 10, Wednesday, at 8:00 pm ET/PT. Legends of Chima follows the adventures of opposing animal tribes who are battling for control of a powerful energy source called CHI, which is the source of life and a possible catalyst for unimaginable destruction.
Legends of Chima is set in the fictional kingdom of Chima, which is ruled by very advanced animal tribes. The creatures walk and talk like humans, drive vehicles, use advanced machinery, and dwell in amazing castles and fortresses. At the heart of Legends of Chima are Laval the Lion and Cragger the Crocodile, two best buddies, whose friendship has gone wrong, and their animal tribes are now competing for the ultimate life force – Chi.
In support of Legends of Chima, CartoonNetwork.com will also introduce a new game titled “Laval Unleashed,” which is scheduled to launch on July 1, coinciding with the series launch. The game will let players step in the shoes of Laval the Lion as he runs through a 2D jungle environment, while taking out crocodiles, ravens, and other enemies. Players will be able to attack by jumping on the heads of enemies as well as collecting Chi orbs to build up their Chi meters that allows Laval to unleash a projectile attack with his sword.
