The Master is a 2016 computer animated short film written and directed by Jon Saunders, co-written by Ross Evans, Carey Yost and Remington D. Donovan and produced by Ryan Halprin. The short film was released on September 23, 2016, with Warner Animation Group's Storks. It stars Jackie Chan as Master Wu. The short follows Wu and an annoying chicken. This is the first Lego short film to be released in theaters, and is also the first theatrical short film from The Lego Movie franchise.
It begins with the narrator narrating about Master Wu. When Wu gets to the end of his presentation, a chicken interrupts it. Wu takes the chicken out of the dojo and tries again, although it happens again. After several attempts, he fights the chicken, but afterwards, the chicken throws Wu out of the dojo, causing him to crash through the Warner Bros. logo shown in the beginning. The chicken then feels guilty and modifies the title. It ends with Wu striking a fight pose with the chicken, then kicks the chicken out, which knocks the "S" off the modified title "The Masters".
