Jurassic World had moments of humor and levity throughout all the dinosaur mayhem, but no one does humor quite like LEGO, so it makes sense that the two would unite for a new Jurassic World project titled The Indominus Escape.
The first trailer for the upcoming animated project can be found above, and it deftly pokes fun at some of the most outlandish parts of the film while adding some humorous setups of its own.
“Playing with the characters, dinosaurs, and environments of Jurassic World in LEGO form through the playsets and video games is one of the most popular ways for fans to experience the franchise,” said David O’Connor, Executive Vice President, Global Brand Marketing & Partnerships, Universal Pictures. “By creating new narratives and additional storytelling through this fun LEGO animated short, we’re able to showcase the lighter, more humorous side of the world’s most popular dinosaur brand.”
The animated short will debut in 5 parts on the Jurassic World and LEGO YouTube channels, and then all 5 will be combined and released as part of a Jurassic World DVD bundle on October 18th. That bundle will also include an additional 8 minute exclusive short.
Part 1 will launch on October 3, with parts 2 - 5 launching every day afterward. You can view the newest poster for the project in the gallery.
When Simon Masrani accidentally destroys one of the park’s main attractions (he really should learn how to fly that helicopter!), he calls upon his trusted employee, Claire, to save the park! After some quick dino-DNA building in Dr. Wu’s lab, Claire comes up with the perfect solution that is sure to please Masrani and kids everywhere – The Indominus rex – the smartest, biggest, scariest and most hot dog- loving hybrid dinosaur ever created! But when the Indominus eats all the hot dogs, it escapes from its pen in a hungry rage and it’s up to the talented and rugged dinosaur trainer Owen Grady to save the day. After a daring motorcycle chase that ends in a pile of bricks, Owen and Claire think they have the Indominus rex beat, but the hybrid is smarter than they thought.0comments
