Jurassic World Gets a Prequel in LEGO Form, Airs on NBC This Month

Posted by November 8, 2018 Comment

A new LEGO Jurassic World special will be airing on NBC later this month. The prequel, titled The Secret Exhibit, will show us how Owen and Claire met before the events of the first Jurassic World film. We will also get more adorable Owen and baby raptor moments, and learn how some of the new dinos we saw in this summers Fallen Kingdom got onto the island. After airing on NBC, it will be available to stream on the NBC App, Hulu, and On Demand, followed by a DVD release in January.

Check out the trailer, full synopsis, and a couple stills from the special below:

NBC has partnered with Universal Brand Development and The LEGO Group for the upcoming debut of a two-part animated special:“LEGO®Jurassic World:The Secret Exhibit.” The all-new animated special–inspired by the blockbuster Jurassic World franchise –will air on Nov.29 at 8p.m. ET/PT on NBC.The story takes place before the adventures of Jurassic World in 2015.

With the grand opening of Jurassic World’s new super-secret dinosaur exhibit just days away, only one thing is missing – the dinosaurs! In order to get the job done, Simon Masrani enlists his newly-hired assistant, Claire Dearing, to ensure the new attraction opens on time…or else. Unfortunately, Owen Grady, the animal behaviorist Claire hired to deliver the dinosaurs, is late. Things aren’t looking too good for Claire…or for Owen, who just wants to deliver the dinosaurs, collect his paycheck and get off the island.

But the mission to deliver the dinosaurs turns out to be far more difficult than anyone could have imagined. From a runaway Gyrosphere, hang gliding with a Pteranodon (how did they get out of the Aviary?!), to a high-speed game of chicken with a T-Rex, Owen will earn his paycheck and then some. And Claire may just get promoted to Assistant Manager of Park Operations. Along the way, we get the first inklings of why Owen and Claire drive each other crazy, but despite their differences, they succeed and make a great team. Oh, and Owen meets Blue for the first time as he discovers he has a way with dinosaurs he never knew about!

The two-part special will be available to stream the morning after the NBC broadcast, Nov. 30, across multiple platforms, including the NBC app and NBC.com, where it can be viewed without a login, as well as on Hulu and On Demand. It will also be available for download from major digital retailers.

The DVD, with exclusive bonus content, drops Jan. 15, 2019.

LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit airs on NBC on November 29th at 8 PM.
