Many fans rejoiced when The LEGO Group acquired the rights to produce sets for the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World, in 2015. Now, after a few months of rumors, it has been officially confirmed that we will also be receiving sets for the sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, in spring 2018!
“The Jurassic World franchise has always had huge cross-generational family appeal, and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom promises to be one of the biggest movie and merchandising events of 2018,” said Vince Klaseus, president of Universal Brand Development.
“Following the success of 2015, we’ve been hard at work to build out the largest Jurassic World program to-date to meet the increasing demands from fans, as well as reach new audiences around the world – demonstrating the global appeal of this 365 mega-franchise.”
