If you’re looking for something new to watch at the cinema, you may want to consider Checkered Ninja – the box office record-breaking animation film releasing in cinemas this June.

Based on the best-selling novel by Danish author, Anders Matthesen, the Checkered Ninja follows the story of a sweet and clever boy named Aske, who is unfortunately bullied at school.

On his birthday he ends up receiving a toy – a doll – from his Uncle Stewart. While the ninja doll looks completely harmless – think button-eyed (literally) and small – unfortunately, it isn’t. The doll is alive and can walk and talk, and has some serious ninja skills.

It also has a traumatic past, one that Aske isn’t aware of just yet.

The audience is given a glance of the doll’s unique abilities in the very first scene of the movie during a murder scene that involved the death of a poor child factory worker. The cold-blooded murder causes the doll to gets possessed by a betrayed 500-year-old vengeful spirit. Rage fills its heart and he takes it upon himself to seek justice for the child factory worker that was killed.

Once in the hands of teenage Aske, the little checkered ninja starts off by helping him tackle his bullies and get the attention of his crush, who happens to be the most popular girl in school.

While far from the usual ninja-style flick, the movie filled with positive infused messages, courage, character development, topped off with comedic moments that both adults and older children can enjoy.
