Believe it or not, ‘LEGO Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape’ is the first time the Jurassic franchise has seen an official animated outing. While it’s not an expansion of the canonical fiction, it certainly is a fun idea and hopefully will be the tip of the iceberg for brand evolution. The LEGO Movie was absolutely brilliant, and I know I’d love to see some Jurassic characters make a cameo in the sequel.. however, I’d like to see an expansion of the canon via a comic series, TV series, novels, or cartoon even more!
