This year marks the 30th anniversary of Steven Spielberg’s iconic adventure film, “Jurassic Park,” and Universal Pictures is sparing no effort in commemorating this cinematic milestone. From theme park activations to new merchandise and theatrical revivals, fans have been treated to an array of celebratory events. However, the festivities are far from over.
In just one week, Peacock, the streaming platform, is set to release a brand-new animated special that offers a unique perspective on the events of “Jurassic Park.” Prepare yourselves for “LEGO Jurassic Park: The Unofficial Retelling.”
The LEGO Take on “Jurassic Park”
“LEGO Jurassic Park” is, in essence, exactly what its title suggests—an adaptation of the beloved film using the iconic LEGO brick aesthetic. This creative endeavor is the result of a collaboration between NBCUniversal, Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, and The LEGO Group. The 22-minute special endeavors to revisit all the memorable moments from the original movie, including the thrilling T. Rex attack and the awe-inspiring first encounter with dinosaurs in an open landscape. However, what sets this adaptation apart is its “Unofficial Retelling” perspective.
The Unofficial Retelling
The LEGO version of “Jurassic Park” is presented through the eyes of Dr. Ian Malcolm, portrayed by Jeff Goldblum in the original film. Dr. Malcolm, now a bit older, rediscovers his journal containing his firsthand account of the events that unfolded in Jurassic Park. Inspired to share his version of the story, he takes viewers on a nostalgic journey. Expect witty observations and LEGO-inspired humor as Dr. Malcolm recounts his adventure.
