Hi, guys! Since that the idea about Disney owning Bionicle was revealed to be a fake (click here: http://www.bzpower.com/board/topic/23996-lego-what-have-you-done/ ), I am going to talk about this: if a cinematic Bionicle movie were to be made, how would you like it to be? I know that we have four Bionicle movies in 2003-2009, but they are direct-to-video movies that take over 70 minutes. I am talking about movies that first appear in the cinemas, like the Transformers, Marvel and DC Comics superheroes, Star Wars, and The Lego Movie. For me, I would go with these ideas: Studios: Warner Bros. (Bionicle made a cameo in their movie, The Lego Movie), Disney (the first three direct-to-video movies in 2003-2005 were made by Miramax, which I heard is a division of Disney. Plus, I would believe that Disney could improve Bionicle in the way it improved Marvel and Star Wars), or Universal (the fourth direct-to-video movie, The Legend Reborn in 2009, was made by them). I would go with Warner Bros because they are making The Lego Movie Cinematic Universe, and this is about Lego characters, original or licensed from already existing franchises, like DC Comics, in general. Animated or live-action, and how would the story be based on that: I would prefer either. If it were to be live-action, the story would have human beings and takes place on the Planet Earth for the first time. The Bionicle worlds (either the Matoran Universe, Spherus Magna, or the G2 world) would also be seen, as they could make appearances, too. For the Bionicle characters who appear in the live-action movie, some of them would be people dressed in CGI costumes (similar to "I, Robot" in 2004 and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turltes movies in 2014-2016) while others, like the Rahi, would be entirely CGI. It would be like a mix of Transformers, Avatar in 2009, TMNT, "I, Robot", Pacific Rim, Marvel Cinematic Universe, DC Extended Universe, and Star Wars movies in 2002-2015 if you can think of the CGI graphics in live-action movies that way, since Bionicle characters are bio-mechanical. If the movie were to be computer-animated, it should be 3D, like the direct-to-video movies. The story would not include the human-and-Earth-ideas I said above, as it would focus on the Bionicle characters and their own worlds. I would imagine this movie would be like a mix of Moana (2016) and How to Train Your Dragon (2010-2014) that way (Think of it as it has these beautiful kinds of graphics). Besides these types of reality in the movie, most of the scenes in The Lego Movie, The Lego Batman Movie, and The Lego Ninjago Movie show what it seems to be stop-motion. If a cinematic Bionicle movie would have stop-motion, it would be a part of The Lego Movie Cinematic Universe. However, I prefer either live-action or computer-animated. Story: The story should be somewhere as good as or better than G1. If it were to be live-action, the story would be about Bionicle characters (who were introduced in G1 and G2) coming to Earth and do stuff there. The Toa (Mata) would crash land on Earth with their Toa canisters and meet and make friends with some humans. They would also hide from other humans who don't understand them until the Toa show that they are heroes who have a duty to protect Earth from evil villains from their own home world (either Matoran Universe, Spherus Magna, or the G2 world), as it is either their new home or a peaceful place to visit. The Toa would also go on quests to find some Bionicle-related stuff on Earth, like weapons or the Great Beings. The humans would act like other Bionicle characters to the Toa, like the Matoran and Turaga. Some of these humans would become their allies that way, but the Toa have to be the main protagonists. If the Bionicle movie is a part of The Lego Movie Cinematic Universe, well, let's just say that extra people, like minifigures from other worlds, would appear along with the Bionicle characters, who appear as giants to them. Some of the Bionicle characters would be able to Master-Build, like the Master-Builders. Having its own Cinematic Universe or be a part of another Cinematic Universe: Well, I would go with either way. If the Bionicle movie were to be a part of The Lego Movie Cinematic Universe, see above, and I would say that it could most likely since The Lego Movie Cinematic Universe is about Lego in general. I would like to think of a Cinematic Universe that is very similar to Lego Dimensions, where Bionicle characters meet characters from other Lego themes with their own storylines and universes, like The Lego Movie, Ninjago, Nexo Knights, Hero Factory, Legends of Chima, and Mixels, as this Cinematic Universe would be called The Lego Theme Cinematic Universe. I would like to imagine something like Tahu working together Avengers-style with Emmet (TLM), Lloyd (Ninjago), Clay Moorington (NK), Preston Stormer (HF), Laval (LoC), and Flain (Mixels) to fight against a powerful enemy, like Makuta Teridax, the Overlord from Ninjago, or someone else old or new. If Bionicle would be a part of a Lego Constraction Cinematic Universe, the Bionicle would do the same thing as above, but only with other constraction themes, like Hero Factory, Slizers/Throwbots, Robo Riders, or some new theme that would be replacing Bionicle this year. If Bionicle would have its own Cinematic Universe, may it be called the Bionicle Cinematic Universe, where it only focuses on the Bionicle characters (and perhaps humans along the way if it were live-action, but still, only the Bionicle characters would be the main protagonists), kind of similar to Transformers. If one of these Cinematic Universes were to be selected, I would go with these made-up Bionicle-related-or-dominated movies: 1. Bionicle 1 - Toa Mata/Masters vs. The Infected Rahi/Skull Creatures and Makuta and searching for magic and golden masks. 2. Bionicle 2 - The Toa become Uniters and unite with Elemental Creatures and fight against Umarak or the Bohrok. 3. Bionicle 3 - the Uniters would become the Toa Nuva and probably fight the Bohrok/Bohrok-Kal. 4. Bionicle 4 - Toa Nuva and Takanuva fighting against Umarak/Rahkshi and Makuta Teridax. 5. Bionicle Origins: Toa Metru - a prequel that would be based on the 2004 storyline 6. Bionicle Origins: Toa Metru 2: Rise of the Toa Hordika - a sequel to the previous movie, but still a prequel, that would be based on the 2005 storyline. 7. Bionicle Untold Stories: Toa Mangai - tells the adventures of the Toa Mangai. 8. Bionicle Untold Stories: Toa Jovan's Team - tells the adventures of Toa Jovan's Team. 9. Bionicle: Toa Inika - a spinoff that would be based on the 2006 storyline. 10. Bionicle: Toa Inika 2: Rise of the Toa Mahri - a sequel to the previous movie, but still a spinoff that would be based on the 2007 storyline. 11. Bionicle Untold Stories: Lesovikk - tells Lesovikk's adventures. 12. Bionicle 5 - the Toa Nuva, wearing the Adaptive Armor and having the Av-Matoran as their sidekicks, go to war against the Brotherhood of Makuta and awaken the Great Spirit Mata Nui. It's based on the 2008 storyline. 13. Bionicle Untold Stories: The Order of Mata Nui - tells the Order of Mata Nui's adventures. 14. Bionicle Untold Stories: Mazeka - based on Mazeka's adventures. 15. Bionicle Untold Stories: Federation of Fear - Bionicle's own version of Suicide Squad that is based on the Federation of Fear serial. 16. Bionicle 6 - based on the 2009 storyline, but I would also like to think that the Mask of Life had landed on Earth. 17. Bionicle 7 - Since Makuta Teridax took over the Matoran Universe, he sends the Dark Hunters, including probably Umarak, to hunt Mata Nui down. 18. Bionicle 8 - based on a script of a cancelled fifth Bionicle direct-to-video movie in 2010 19. Bionicle 9 - Mata Nui's adventures in Bota Magna, something that the cancelled sixth Bionicle direct-to-video movie could've based on. 20. Bionicle Origins: Core War - it would be based on the Core War from G1. 21. Bionicle Origins: Bara Magna - it would be about the people in Bara Magna and their adventures before Mata Nui showed up. 22. Bionicle 10 - based on the Journey's End storyline in 2010, but I would like to think that Teridax would use the gravity power of the Great Spirit to try to destroy Earth. 23. Bionicle 11 - based on the events after Journey's End, like, you know, the serials, Velika's conquest, the Red Star business, the Marander hunting, the search for the Great Beings, etc. 24. A Bionicle movie where Bionicle characters and humans are tricked by an evil villain (probably Velika or Teridax) into fighting each other. The end would be have both of the sides working together to fight the villain. 25. A movie where the Bionicle heroes travel through space and time, through the events of and traveling into G1, G2, and the cinematic movies themselves to combat a menace (probably Velika and/or Teridax) who threatens to mess the universes and events up. Heroes from all the generations would team up to do this. This movie would be to celebrate the whole Bionicle franchise's anniversary (for the first time of Bionicle's life). It would be like a mix of Turtles Forever in 2009 and Sonic Generations in 2011 when you think of it. 26. If celebrating only the Bionicle cinematic movie series' anniversary first before the one above, then it would be about the Bionicle heroes traveling traveling through time and space, into the events of the movies, to stop the evil villain from messing them up. 27. A movie about time travel. 28. A movie about Toa fighting against Tuyet, who threatens to rule the Matoran Universe. 29. A movie about two good Bionicle forces are fighting each other in a civil war, similar to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (but in a much better way) and Captain America: Civil War in 2016. For examples, Tahu v Kopaka, Jaller v Matoro, or Bionicle (some option number): Civil War. 30. A movie where Bionicle characters working together with non-Bionicle Lego characters from other Lego themes, similar to Marvel's Avengers movie in 2012. I would also like to think that there would be crossover movies where Bionicle characters fight characters from other themes. For example, Bionicle v Hero Factory (imagine Stormer from HF knowing Tahu's weakness while Tahu is more powerful than him during a fight?), Bionicle v Ninjago, and Bionicle v some replacement Constraction theme in 2017. Actors: Well, I don't want this topic to be long, but you can see my list of actors in this other topic: http://www.bzpower.com/board/topic/24174-what-famous-movie-celebrity-actors-would-you-like-to-play-a-bionicle-character/ . Content: If the movie is a part of the Lego Movie Cinematic Universe, it should have the same rate as the other Lego Movies. If on its own, I would like the movie to have around the same atmosphere as the Marvel movies, but no profanity words or other inappropriate Rated-R content. So, there. I know it's a lot and these sound crazy, but they are what I would like a cinematic Bionicle movie to be if there is one. What do you guys think (Note: please don't say "Bionicle couldn't do that" or "It may not be possible unless something happens". I am just talking about what would your vision of a cinematic Bionicle movie be like)?
