Latest: Find out about new LEGO CHIMA games
I'm Mum to two boys who are LEGO-crazy and I'm more than happy to join in. They love the look of the images we've seen - minifigures with animal heads.
I'll be keeping track of the Legends of Chima theme on this page and updating as we here from LEGO about this new theme for 2013.
What is Legends of Chima?
Legends of Chima is a new LEGO theme for 2013. The theme includes minifigures with humanoid bodies and the heads of wild animals. That's got my kids interest right there!
There will also be small vehicles called Speedorz which will be part of the game that goes with the theme. There will also be larger vehicle model sets.
There are some very cool LEGO Chima videos to watch including teasers, story background and Speedorz and set promos:

LEGO Chima Pictures
Wow! We're really excited to see these LEGO Chima pictures on a Korean LEGO blog. They are of a LEGO Legends of Chima display booth with lots of Chima sets, cool display features and a Speedorz demo table (there are even some clips of Speedorz being played!) We can't stop looking at these. Very cool.
Tribes of Chima
In the initial wave of Legends of Chima sets there are five animal tribes: Lion, Crocodile, Wolf, Eagle and Raven. The Legend of Chima teaser site shows an image with a rock that has a Lion and an Eagle head on a rock and also a Gorilla head. So I think there are six tribes of Chima including the Gorillas who don't appear in the initial sets. Maybe there will be more too.
Legends of Chima Minifigures
Here's a close up of some of the minifigures from the LEGO Legends of Chima theme. Pretty cool, we think.

We have this book and my son is enjoying it. It also comes with a small poster.

Will there be a Legends of Chima TV Show or Movie?
Update: Yes, there will be a Legends of Chima TV show, see the trailer.
We think so For the Ninjago theme this has definitely been a big part of the appeal for my boys. The love watching the show and learning loads of details about the characters and then acting out the stories.
Wikipedia mentions that Cartoon Network will be airing a show called Legends of Chima in 2013 (details TBA.) so it looks promising.
We've found out about new episodes of Ninjago by checking IMDB. There's nothing there for Legends of Chima at time of writing, but you can check for a Legends of Chima movie or TV show to get the latest info.
LEGO Chima 4D Movie Xperience
The LEGOLAND websites are showing a LEGO Legends of Chima 4D Movie Xperience. It looks like the movie will be showing when the LEGOLAND parks open for the 2013 season. The viewer gets involved in "a battle for CHI between the Laval the Lion Prince, and Cragger the Crocodile Prince."
Ninjago vs Legends of Chima
From what you know of Legends of Chima do you think it's going to be even better than Ninjago? Or are you a loyal Ninjago fan who wants to see lots more Ninjago?
Which is best: Ninjago or Legends of Chima?
Legends of Chima Release Dates
The LEGO Legends of Chima teaser site says 2013. When LEGO announces new themes for the beginning of a year, there is often some availability late in December of the previous year, sometimes in time for Christmas. So we may see the first sets in late 2012.
LEGO Club France has pre-announced that the release date for LEGO Legends of Chima is December 26th (in France at least.)
