Universal, the studio behind the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World franchise has confirmed that new LEGO Jurassic World sets will be released this year in an announcement highlighted by the Brick Fan. It is unexpected news, as typically the LEGO Group only focuses on films during the release year.
“This momentum, plus much more, is key to the lead up of the third Jurassic World film slated for 2021,” says Hannah Mungo, country director, U.K. and Ireland, Universal Brand Development. “We know that there is a strong appetite for this enduring entertainment brand and we are committed to adding breadth and depth to the franchise, which continues to propel Jurassic World as an always-on franchise.”
While details of next year’s Jurassic World sets are unknown, it could be an opportunity for the LEGO Group to revisit the classic movie – fans have been vocal on platforms such as LEGO Ideas about their appetite for original Jurassic Park icons such as the explorer and gates. With an Ian Malcolm minifigure coming in the Bricktober set and 75932 Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase released earlier this year, it is certainly a possibility.
