Western Animation / LEGO Elves: Secrets of Elvendale

Go To

Based on the LEGO toyline and animated Disney series LEGO Elves and with an animation style unlike any other Lego animated property, the story revolves around Emily Jones telling her little sister about the world of Elvendale. Though Sophie doesn't believe her, she follows her into a portal, where she learns the world of Elvendale is real. After Sophie is kidnapped by the Goblin King, who wishes to use Emily's magic amulet for his own purposes, our heroes head out to save her.


  • Ambiguously Brown: Azari and Rosalyn have darker skin tones no other characters in Elvendale have.
  • Animesque: Unlike any other LEGO series, the characters look nothing like LEGO figures. However, LEGO bricks appear both during the theme song and in several background shots (carved into trees, alongside rocks, etc.).
  • Badass Normal: Besides owning a magical amulet, Emily Jones is an otherwise normal teenager.
  • Butt-Monkey: Farran. If someone is going to suffer an amusing injury, chances are it's going to be him.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Cronan. He lost his mother when she failed to make one of her spells work properly and was unable to save her. This later led him to risk tampering with dark magic to try and free her.
  • Dragon Rider: The Elves can ride atop dragons for transportation.
  • Even Bad Men Love Their Mamas: Cronan is aiming to rescue his mother.
  • The One Guy: There's only one male character amongst the heroes, and that is Farran. Though it looks like he won't be the only guy anymore, as Cronan redeemed himself and joined the Elves.
    • Tidus, a male water elf in charge of tending to dragons, also makes a few appearances.
  • Heel–Face Turn: In the finale, Cronan becomes disillusioned when his mother Quartzine appears before him in a vision. Telling her son that he needs to let her go. He redeems himself and joins the Elves soon after.
  • Mind Control: Cronan uses mind control magic to control the goblins.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: While not said aloud, Cronan goes through a version of this when he realized Emily, Sophie, and the other Elves really cared about him and still wanted to be his friends. That, and learning Rosalyn had apparently been killed.
    • Quartzine, realizing the error of her ways, was able to restore the life energy of the forest as her last act.
  • Named by the Adaptation: Cronan's shadow beast originally went unnamed but here is given the name Darknicity.
  • Our Goblins Are Different: The Goblins are cute, Orc-like creatures in appearance who serve as Cronan's Mooks for the majority of the series.
  • Right Behind Me: Sophie utters this line when she suddenly realizes Cronan is right behind her.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: Cronan is frustrated by the Goblins' stupidity and incompetence.
  • Taking You with Me: During the final battle, Darknicity attempts to drag Cronan into the portal with it.
  • Undying Loyalty: Ashwing, Cronan's dragon, risks being killed while protecting him from Darknicity despite Cronan's previous mistreatment.
    • Even the Goblins, whom he'd used to do his bidding and abused when they failed, still want to be friends with him.
