Nickelodeon USA Acquires Rights to 'LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit' Special; 'Legend of Isla Nublar' Mini-Series

Nickelodeon USA has acquired the rights to LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit, a brand-new two-part LEG0-themed CG-animated television special inspired by the hit Jurassic Park franchise, and LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar, a mini-series that follows up the events of The Secret Exhibit!


In LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit, 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 (Dhirendra) enlists his newly-hired assistant, Claire Dearing (Britt McKillip), to ensure the new attraction opens on time…or else. Unfortunately, Owen Grady (Ian Hanlin), the animal behaviorist Claire hired to deliver the dinosaurs, is late. From a runaway Gyrosphere, hang gliding with a Pteranodon, to a high-speed game of chicken with a T-Rex, Owen’s mission turns out to be far more difficult than anyone could have imagined. It’s the very beginning of Claire and Owen’s epic adventure, in LEGO ® Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit.

Inspired by the Jurassic World Lego toyline, LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit acts as a prequel to the 2015 film Jurassic World, and originally aired on NBC in the United States on November 29, 2018.

Nickelodeon USA will premiere LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit Part 1 on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 11:30 a.m. (ET/PT)!

Nick has also acquired LEGO Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar, a 13-episode mini-series that follows up the events of 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. Newly hired animal behaviorist Owen Grady and Assistant Manager of Park Operations Claire Dearing team up on Isla Nublar to deal with everything hectic life around the Jurassic World park throws their way. And “everything” includes runaway dinosaurs, ongoing construction to expand the park, tourists everywhere unpredictable tropical weather, and an impulsive boss! Plus, a mysterious saboteur with surprising ties to the park’s past is on a quest to find a legendary treasure and destroy Jurassic World forever! What could possibly go wrong? Everything.

The news was announced in the August 2019 issue of Licensing Expo.

Nickelodeon has yet to announce a premiere date for the all-new LEGO Jurassic World series.

The news follows Nickelodeon debuting LEGO City Adventures, a brand-new CG-animated series set in the world of LEGO City, in June 2019.
