When Jurassic World hits theaters this weekend, fans will be taken back to Isla Nublar, the original location where the first Jurassic Park was set, which is now home to a massive dinosaur theme park. Today we have a new featurette that showcases one of the important behind-the-scenes players, paleontologist Jack Horner, who has worked as a consultant on all four Jurassic Park movies. Director Colin Trevorrow revealed he wanted to bring as many people as he could who worked on Jurassic Park, including Jack Horner, while producer Frank Marshall says that his work helps add authenticity to the dinosaurs and the park as a whole.
Jack Horner also helped design the brand new dinosaur, the Indominus Rex, the first dinosaur to ever be created in a lab through genetic modifications, and he also gives us a breakdown of the other dinosaurs fans will see in Jurassic World. The sequel is set twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, where Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor's interest, which backfires horribly.
Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Judy Greer, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jake Johnson, Katie McGrath, Lauren Lapkus, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins and original Jurassic Park star B.D. Wong. If that wasn't enough, we also have four new photos, along with this featurette Check out the latest preview and new photos, before Jurassic World arrives in theaters June 12.
