Nov. 9 (UPI) — The two-part, animated special LEGO Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit is to debut on Nov. 29, NBC announced.
The story takes place before the events of Jurassic World, the 2015 blockbuster starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard as dinosaur trainer Owen and theme-park staffer Claire respectively. Irrfan Khan played the park’s ambitious owner Simon in the film.
“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 enlists his newly-hired assistant, Claire Dearing, to ensure the new attraction opens on time… or else,” said a synopsis for the cartoon special. “Things aren’t looking too good for Claire… or for Owen, who just wants to deliver the dinosaurs, collect his paycheck and get off the island.”
An NBC press release did not mention whose voices will be heard as the characters in the animated program.
Pratt famously lent his voice to the enthusiastic hero Emmet Brickowski in 2014’s The LEGO Movie. He will reprise the role in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, which is due in theaters next year.
