Universal Brand Development, the LEGO Group and Nickelodeon have announced the all-new animated mini-series LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar, premiering Saturday, Sept. 14 at 11:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon in the U.S. The 13-episode CG-animated adventure, taking place before the events of 2015’s blockbuster Jurassic World film, will roll out new episodes Saturdays at 11:30 a.m.
Set in 2012, the mini-series centers on newly hired animal behaviorist, Owen Grady, and Assistant Manager of Park Operations, Claire Dearing, as they team up on Isla Nublar to deal with everything the Jurassic World park throws their way — including runaway dinosaurs, ongoing construction to expand the park, throngs of tourists, unpredictable tropical weather and an impulsive boss! There’s also a mysterious saboteur with surprising ties to the park’s past who is on a quest to find a legendary treasure and destroy Jurassic World forever.
What could possibly go wrong? Well…everything.
A prequel to the brand-new mini-series, LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit Part 1 and Part 2, will be available on the Nick App and VOD beginning Sunday, Aug. 25. In The Secret Exhibit, Simon Masrani has an idea for a new attraction that is guaranteed to keep Jurassic World at the forefront of theme park entertainment, but in order for it to succeed, he needs his right-hand can-do problem solver, Claire Dearing, and newcomer Owen Grady, to get a trio of dinosaurs across the park to the new, super-secret exhibit. Unfortunately, delivering the dinosaurs to the new attraction is not as easy as they thought!
Beginning, Sunday Aug. 25, a sneak peek episode, “Mission Critical,” will be available for fans to watch on the Nick App, Nick On Demand and Nickelodeon’s YouTube channel.
Building sets inspired by LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar are currently available at retail globally, including Dilophosaurus on the Loose (75934), Baryonyx Face-Off: The Treasure Hunt (75935), Triceratops Rampage (75937) and T. rex vs Dino-Mech Battle (75938).
