Who doesn’t love a good LEGO movie? They’ve gone and done it again, creating a sort of prequel to “Jurassic World” that delves into the creation of the main dinosaur from the film, the Indominus Rex. Featuring the voice talents of Zachary Levi (“Chuck”) as park mascot DinoMan/Hot Dog Man, as well as actors from “Jurassic World” reprising their roles Jake Johnson as Lowry, Lauren Lapkus as Vivian, and BD Wong as Dr. Wu.
