Lego Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit airs tonight on NBC — but if you’re wondering who the voices are behind the cast, don’t expect any famous names. Because this two-part special’s all about the Lego!
While making it, NBC partnered with Universal Brand Development and the Lego Group to develop a fun feature with the stories from the Jurassic universe and the spirit of Lego.
The story serves as a prequel to Jurassic World from 2015 and the sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom from 2018.
The characters of Owen Grady and Claire Dearing are played by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the hit blockbusters, and the fictional duo are also at the center of Lego Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit. But while you may may think you recognize their voices on NBC tonight, you’d be wrong.
An NBC spokesperson confirmed to Monsters and Critics about the cast: “There are no celebrity names tied to this special. It’s all about the Legos!”
Without ruining the story of tonight’s special, fans will be reacquainted with the characters from Jurassic World.
Simon Masrani wants to create a new attraction to keep Jurassic World at the forefront of theme parks and stay ahead of competitors. To do this, a trio of dinosaurs are transported to the super-secret exhibit. Needless to say, troubles quickly surface.
In the special, Claire Dearing helps with the exhibit and Owen Grady is actually a newcomer to the park. He is hired as the animal behaviorist, who will be delivering the dinosaurs.
As for the people who provide voices for the special, no names have been made public by NBC or on the mini-series’ IMDb page.
Lego Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit airs tonight on NBC, starting with part one at 8/7c and part two at 8:30/7:30c.
