Universal Brand Development and the LEGO Group have partnered once again for an upcoming miniseries called LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar.

The 13-episode miniseries, which will debut later this year, is a sequel to the 2018 animated special LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit. Set in 2012, three years before the events of the Jurassic World movie, LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar picks up where the story left off from LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit, which premiered on NBC last November.

Newly hired animal behaviorist Owen Grady and Assistant Manager of Park Operations Claire Dearing team up to deal with everything the Jurassic World park throws their way: runaway dinosaurs, ongoing constructions, tourists, unpredictable weather, and an impulsive boss. Owen, Clair, and the rest of the gang must also stop a mysterious saboteur from finding a legendary treasure and destroy Jurassic World forever.

In line with the upcoming debut of LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar, Universal and LEGO are also releasing four new building sets based on the new miniseries. These sets are Dilophosaurus on the Loose, Baryonyx Face-Off: The Treasure Hunt, Triceratops Rampage, and T. rex vs Dino-Mech Battle.
