LEGO is expanding their Jurassic World toys and content with new building sets inspired by an all-new animated mini-series, “LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar.”
Following the adventures of Claire, Owen, and fan-favorite dinosaurs from the 2018 animated specials, “LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit,” this new 13-episode mini-series debuts later this year. Set in 2012, three years before the events of “Jurassic World,” the new series picks up where “The Secret Exhibit” left off. Newly hired animal behaviorist Owen Grady and Assistant Manager of Park Operations Claire Dearing team up on Isla Nublar to deal with runaway dinosaurs, park expansions, tourists, unpredictable tropical weather, an impulsive boss, and more. Plus, a surprising saboteur with ties to the park’s past is on a mission to find a legendary treasure and destroy Jurassic World forever.
To tie in to the new series, LEGO is releasing four sets based on “LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar.” We got a look at the new sets during Toy Fair 2019, and you can take a peek below.
