LEGO to release 10 Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom sets in April 2018!

Hold on to your bricks – LEGO is returning to Jurassic World in a big way. Following the release of the LEGO sets in 2015, there has been a void of the beloved construction blocks for the Jurassic franchise – despite many ‘LEGO Ideas’ sets gaining huge support. LEGO continued to support the franchise however with the release of the digital feature ‘LEGO Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape‘, yet new sets still alluded store shelves.

However, next year with the release of Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom that will change:

As you can see, there are a total of 10 sets planned – 5 standard LEGO sets (75926, 75927, 75928, 75929, 75930), 3 LEGO Junior sets (10756, 10757, 10758), and 2 DUPLO sets (10879, 10880). At this time, it seems that all will be themed to Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom, and not have ties to Jurassic Park 25th anniversary. For those unfamiliar, while DUPLO sets use plus sized blocks and are aimed at preschoolers, LEGO Juniour uses regular blocks, and are fully compatible with standard sets – they are just more simple to build, and aimed at younger audiences. It is also suspected though unconfirmed that there will be at least one additional standard set exclusive to a retailer, perhaps Walmart, like with the first Jurassic World.

2015 Jurassic World Set

While no details about the sets are currently available, it is still exciting to get confirmation LEGO will return to Jurassic World in a big way. Further, there are two very cool details within this document that are easy to miss as important, the first being the logo. As you can see, the Logo is the Fallen Kingdom logo, but it does not feature the subtitle – it is likely this will be the logo used on most of the merchandise for the upcoming film (as oftentimes studios simply market the brand name, not the individual films). The second detail is the the April release date – this is likely the street date for all the merchandise, and when you can expect many items in stores such as the new toy line from Mattel.

What type of sets do you want to see from LEGO for the upcoming sequel? While the Jurassic World sets were nice, many weren’t exactly film accurate, and we’re hopeful LEGO will pay closer attention to accuracy with their Fallen Kingdom lineup. Sound off in the comments below, and stay tuned for the latest news!

Jurassic World Evolution takes place on Isla Nublar and the surrounding islands of the Muertes Archipelago!

Yesterday’s announcement of Jurassic World Evolution didn’t hide the fact that the game took place on the home of Jurassic Park and World – Isla Nublar. However, the full press kit has shared additional and exciting details about the upcoming video game that are sure to excite super fans. Most intriguingly, Jurassic World Evolution will include ‘The Five Deaths’ – aka Isla Sorna and its surrounding islands.

Las Cinco Muertes Map – seen in The Lost World and JP3

The Muertes Archipelago was first introduced in The Lost World, and while little is known about the islands outside of Isla Sorna, the other islands (Isla Matanceros, Isla Muerta, Isla Tacaño and Isla Pena) are known to be dangerous by locals. Do they also sport wild dinosaur populations, perhaps escaped from Sorna? And the bigger question is does this have any relevance to Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom, which is also mentioned in the press kit?

Check out the info in full:

Frontier Developments plc today announced its new game, Jurassic World Evolution, and revealed the first trailer. Based on Universal Pictures’ iconic film franchise and created in collaboration with Universal Brand Development, the game expands on the official Jurassic World mythology and puts players in charge of cinema’s greatest tourist destination – where they will have the opportunity to create and manage their own Jurassic World. Launching in summer 2018, Jurassic World Evolution will be coming to PC, the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and the Xbox One all-in-one games and entertainment system.

“As long-time fans of the entire Jurassic series we’re thrilled to be putting players in charge of their own Jurassic World,” said Frontier’s Chief Creative Officer, Jonny Watts. “We’re excited to bring over fifteen years of management, simulation, and creature development expertise to a destination and franchise that remains an inspiration to us.”

Jurassic World Evolution evolves players’ relationship with the Jurassic World film franchise, placing them in control of operations on the legendary island of Isla Nublar and the surrounding islands of the Muertes Archipelago. Players will build their own Jurassic World as they bioengineer new dinosaur breeds and construct attractions, containment and research facilities. Every choice leads to a different path and spectacular challenges arise when ‘life finds a way.’

The game is scheduled to release next summer and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be in theatres June 2018.

Another key bit of info in the kit is the phrasing of “bioengineer new dinosaur breeds” – does this mean the ability to create your own hybrids, as seen in the mobile Jurassic World game will make an appearence? Hybrids are seemingly here to stay with the franchise, so our bet is on yes (plus even the title Evolution hints at the concept). As long as the game puts the focus primarily on the many ‘real’ dinosaurs of Jurassic Park, World, and the various sequels I personally will welcome hybrids.

Park building videogame ‘Jurassic World: Evolution’ announced! PC, Xbox One, and PS4 – Summer 2018

The much anticipated and long overdue announcement has finally come – there is a full AAA budget Jurassic World video game in development! Announced during the Xbox conference at Gamescom, ‘Jurassic World Evolution’ made its debut with a fantastic, full CG trailer. Check out the trailer below, and read on for every detail we know!

“Create your own Jurassic World in Jurassic World Evolution. Coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in Summer 2018.

Build your own Jurassic World, bioengineer new dinosaur breeds, and construct attractions, containment and research facilities. Every choice leads to a different path and spectacular challenges arise when ‘life finds a way.’”

Jurassic World Evolution is a park building simulator, much similar to the fan favorite ‘Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis’ which was released in 2003. Evolution is being created by the longstanding Frontier Developments, the studio behind Zoo Tycoon, Rollercoaster Tycoon, and much more! While little is known about the game itself, it is fair to assume it will feature in depth park management, creation, and dinosaur containment scenarios. In fact, the end of the trailer seems to hint at a storm system threatening the park, something Operation Genesis was known for!

If you are unfamiliar with park building games, check out the footage below from Jurassic Park Operation Genesis, which should give a fair idea of what’s to come.

Expect many dinosaurs and features in Jurassic World Evolution – and while it has yet to be said officially, expect many tie ins to the upcoming sequel Fallen Kingdom which also releases Summer 2018! Perhaps the volcano will play a part?

The known dinosaurs featured in ‘Evolution’ include Tyrannosaurus Rex, Parasaurolophus, Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Apatosaurus and Triceratops – expect many, many more!

You can follow Jurassic World Evolution on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and the official website.

New Mattel board game for Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom?

A new trademark made by Mattel, Inc. on August 4th could potentially be a hint at a possible board game for Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. This is complete speculation at this point and there has been no confirmation if this is indeed related to the upcoming film or possibly just another product Mattel is producing.

The trademark filed by Mattel, Inc. on the United States Patent and Trademark Office website is for the phrase “Evacuate The Island”. The description of the trademark is “PARLOR GAMES AND ACCESSORIES THEREFOR; BOARD GAMES AND ACCESSORIES THEREFOR” indicating this is some sort of game.

It has been previously reported that Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom will feature a volcanic threat and it is safe to assume the characters may have to evacuate the island at some point which makes the speculation strong for this trademark to be related to the film. Another trademark for “Fossil Strikers” was also filed on August 4th by Mattel for Toy Figures and accessories.

What do you think of the “Evacuate the Island” trademark by Mattel? Do you think it is Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom related? Let us know in the comments below and on our forums.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom to be Really Intense + SDCC News Roundup

It’s been quiet. Perhaps too quiet. And while we decided against picking something off our secret news pile, it was an interesting couple of weeks and allowed us to anticipate what the studio might do next.

San Diego Comic Con was quiet with no studio presence, but as is tradition – Chronicle Collectibles debuted a number of new products at the event, and had guest speaker Glen McIntosh of ILM there, who was the animation supervisor on Jurassic World and animation director on Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom!

Jurassic fan Victoria got to speak with Glen at the Chronicle booth and managed to score some tidbits from the upcoming sequel, including a rumour that the film was originally going to be titled Jurassic Earth.

However, we have since heard that this was merely a misinterpreted joke between Glen and Chronicle. He spoke very highly of the sequel however and said “it’s gonna be really scary, really intense, to a level that I think we haven’t seen before” and went on to compliment the creative team behind the film:

“Colin’s script, JA’s direction, they’ve really pushed the envelope of the intensity and I think that’s supported by the cinematography, there’s very harsh lighting. It’s gonna look fantastic.

At the booth Glen was gifting fans with free sketches of dinosaurs from the series and showed video from a motion capture screen test he was working on at ILM – showcasing a man in a motion capture suit animating a Velociraptor live, seen through a monitor in the foreground.

You can see the full 9 minute video here showing what Victoria saw at the Chronicle booth, including some of their new products – the Hammond Cane (which they worked in collaboration with Paradise Collectibles on), the sick Triceratops and the Indominus Rex statue.

You can watch Chronicle’s interview with Glen at the booth here, and below are some photos taken by showcasing Chronicle’s new products:


At the booth, Chronicle revealed their new product in collaboration with Paradise Collectibles: The John Hammond Cane prop replica! Cast from an original film prop seen in the movie, this cane is an exclusive 1:1 scale replica and is available for pre-order now through Paradise Collectibles new website.

Read more about the Hammond cane here, and let us know what you think of all these new products in the comments below! We really enjoy reading all of the discussions you guys have below, so keep it up!
