Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the latest installment of their CGI-fest adventure film franchise, premiered back in June, while the official tie-in building-brick sets from LEGO came out on the preceding month. It seems to have simply ended at that, but just because they stopped releasing doesn’t mean there won’t be more in future. Because the film giant itself has already confirmed that we can expect more LEGO Jurassic World sets come next year.
According to License Global, Universal Pictures announced its future plans for the Jurassic World franchise, going well until next year. This includes new toy products in 2019, to be produced by both Mattel and The LEGO Group, an unusual period as Fallen Kingdom has long arrived and its sequel still years off.
In 2019, “Jurassic World: The Exhibition,” which debuted in Paris last year, will stop in Madrid in the fall. “Jurassic World in Concert,” a visual and orchestral experience, will continue its global tour. Universal Games and Digital Platforms will continue to celebrate the franchises’ most recent films with “Jurassic World Alive,” an augment reality location-based mobile game as well as “Jurassic World Evolution,” a dinosaur theme-park management centers console/PC games.
Additional products from master toy partner Mattel and construction partner LEGO will debut at retailers in the U.K. through 2019.
But while this year is still around, Universal and LEGO will collaborate on a LEGO Jurassic World animated special that would air sometime in late 2018. Running 22 minutes long, this animation will be used to help promote the film’s home media release last September.
Aside from the promise of more LEGO Jurassic World sets in 2019, we know there is a 4-minifigure limited edition set Bricktober on Toys R Us Stores (with LEGO Stores in the US). That and the animated special should tie over LEGO and Jurassic World fans until the next year comes.
By the way, the one-off LEGO Jurassic World animation might either be released on home media or aired on Cartoon Network, long the home of various LEGO animated series. The sequel to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on the other hand will be far in 2021.
