Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, sequel to the same-named 2015 movie and the fifth cinematic installment of Universal’s Jurassic Park franchise, is due to premiere on June. And of course, with their longtime licensing partnership with LEGO you can expect the tie-in LEGO sets to come out before the big day.
Now, barring the darker plot turn of its upcoming sequel, the first Jurassic World film was, for a brief while, a magnificent visual experience as it showed off how a fully functional and constantly-packed dinosaur park would feel like. It’s definitely lighter than the disaster chronicled in 1993’s Jurassic Park.
By the way, reckoning from that date, the Jurassic franchise is close to being 25 years old. Apparently this milestone is also in LEGO’s mind, as there are now rumors that there will be a new and original play set based on Jurassic Park, not Jurassic World or its sequel.
Surely generations alive can still remember the first film, based on Michael Crichton’s novel and directed by Steven Spielberg. It was the first attempt at a park with cloned dinosaurs, and unexpected circumstances led to its catastrophic failure. LEGO fans will get to relive the adventure in the new set.
According to unconfirmed information, the set depicts the scene where the surviving tour group led by Dr. Grant tries to crack the park’s computer system while the vicious raptors try to enter the nearby kitchen by opening the doors manually. The set will include four minifigures and two raptor figures.
Granted, at the moment the above should be considered hearsay until The LEGO Group itself makes the announcement. The soonest that might happen is during the New York Toy Fair later this month, as the company fires another salvo of its Jurassic World lineup. Perhaps the Park set is included.
