As previously reported, the LEGO Jurassic World theme will continue this year, supported by a new animated series titled LEGO Jurassic World: Legend Of Isla Nublar. Following the very dark, gothic turn taken in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, it seems that the LEGO Group and Universal are looking to connect children with the franchise.
The new animated series will run for 13 episodes, due to air later this year, and continues the storyline from the LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit special.
Here is the official synopsis for the series:
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.
“The box office and retail success of 2018 proved Jurassic World is the definitive dinosaur brand,” said Vince Klaseus, president of Universal Brand Development. “This year we’re focused on continuing to expand the Jurassic World story through always-on content and new experiences for fans of all ages. Our partnership with the LEGO Group allows us to do just that and more.”
