Bionicle: Mask of Light: The Movie is the first direct-to-video Bionicle film based on the Lego toy series, made by Miramax Films with the help of Lego. It has sold over 40 million copies worldwide since its release.
The movie revolves around the latter half of the 2003 storyline, on the island called Mata Nui. The spirit protecting the island was put into a deep sleep, and only the Mask of Light, in the hands of two Matoran who are assisted by six Toa, can return it to the Toa of Light before it is too late.
The direct-to-video sales made Mask of Light one of the top selling DVDs of 2003 in the United States, and has helped the development of three more movies in the franchise. It was praised for its visual effects and sound direction, but thought to be average in its storyline and character development. The movie was followed by three sequels Bionicle 2: Legends of Metru Nui, Bionicle 3: Web of Shadows, and Bionicle: The Legend Reborn.
