What Will The 2023 Jurassic World Sets Look Like?
27th September 2022
This year saw the culmination of the Jurassic World trilogy, and with no further movies from the franchise planned, the future of the associated LEGO theme is in doubt. Thankfully, next year marks the 30th anniversary of the first Jurassic Park movie, which is an opportunity to give new life to the now directionless theme. This has not gone unnoticed by Universal who are reportedly seeking to capitalise by extending the life of LEGO Jurassic World into 2023 with sets commemorating the iconic movie.
There have already been three LEGO sets based on the first movie: Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase (75932) in 2018, Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage (75936) in 2019, and most recently the T. rex Breakout (76956) in 2022. When thinking about what the 30th Anniversary sets could involve, it's hard to imagine that they would release another one centred on a T-rex, given that there are two excellent models already. It's possible that they might revisit the scene where the velociraptors pursue Lex and Tim through the kitchen by remaking the Velociraptor Chase set. The 2018 set was fairly juniorised and LEGO could design a diorama style-build that would appeal to the adult market.
It's not clear whether there will be multiple sets next year or only one. Assuming there will be a few, the moment when Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler first set eyes on the roaming Brachiosaurus could make for a great display piece. This would also mean having a new dinosaur in brick form, as a Brachiosaurus has not previously featured in a LEGO set. Then there is the scene when Ellie finds an injured Triceratops. Considering this is a landmark anniversary, we could get something spectacular from LEGO, so a recreation of a large section of the park is certainly not out of the question. If this does happen, be prepared for a sizable spend as such a model would require a few thousand pieces.
As few details are known at the moment, this is all speculation, but we'll keep you updated as soon as we know more.
