LEGO Jurassic World sets confirmed for 2015
Every Friday I do my ‘big shop’ at the local supermarket and every Friday I listen to the new Empire Podcast whilst I’m dodging trolleys and grabbing bargains. This weeks Empire Podcast had an interview with Chris Pratt, better known to many as Emmet the hero of The LEGO Movie and now starring in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Both of which have LEGO sets based upon them, meaning Chris Pratt currently has 2 minfigures versions of himself, a feat matched by Harrison Ford amoug others (see ones mentioned by Tristan and Jon below) This was bought up in the podcast, where Chris Pratt revealed he would be getting a third minifigure for his character in Jurassic World.
Yes – there’s going to be Jurassic World/Jurassic Park LEGO sets!
When asked how many LEGO versions of him there are, Chris replied “three (…) I’ve just seen and approved the look for my character Owen from the Jurassic Park, er the Jurassic Park LEGO” So there you have it, next year we will be getting a new theme based on Universal’s return to the world of dinosaurs. You can listen to the Empire Podcast by clicking here, the LEGO reference occurs around 1 hour 9 minutes in.
UPDATED – Kre-o does currently hold the construction toy licence for the Jurassic Park IP however this is due to end this year, leaving the door open for LEGO to take up the licence. And as others have said Chris Pratt is the star of The LEGO Movie so I’m sure he wouldn’t mix up the brands.
