LEGO kicked off a very busy Friday with the announcement of a new animated mini-series as well as four all-new LEGO construction sets that tie into the show. With pre-show press releases in full swing ahead of the New York Toy Fair, LEGO’s exciting reveal is the perfect beginning to a weekend sure to be packed with plenty more new Jurassic goodness.
The 13 epsidode miniseries, titled LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar, is set to air later in 2019. Read the synopsis below to learn more about what sounds like another excellent LEGO adventure set in the Jurassic World universe:
Set in 2012, three years before the events of the Jurassic World movie, LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar picks up where the story left off from LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit. Newly hired animal behaviorist Owen Grady and Assistant Manager of Park Operations Claire Dearing team up on Isla Nublar to deal with everything the Jurassic World park throws their way. And “everything” includes runaway dinosaurs, ongoing construction to expand the park, tourists everywhere, unpredictable tropical weather, and an impulsive boss! Plus, a mysterious saboteur with surprising ties to the park’s past is on a quest to find a legendary treasure and destroy Jurassic World forever! What could possibly go wrong? Everything.
While we’re certainly happy about another LEGO Jurassic World show, the toys themselves look all sorts of fun and crazy! We not only have clever in-universe nods like the Egg Spinner theme park ride and what looks to be Owen’s trailer, but all new LEGO Jurassic species like the Baryonyx and Triceratops. The Dino-Mech is definitely over the top, but fans familiar with the antics of LEGO’s animated movies shouldn’t be surprised by a ridiculously giant robot T. rex. Keep scrolling for an in-depth look at each of upcoming sets, which you’ll be able to find on shelves this fall.
