The movie is going to feature a few direct callbacks to that first film that we all loved so much. It was revealed by /Film that one of the attractions of the park will include the T-Rex. Not just any T-Rex though, the same T-Rex that terrorized the characters from the first movie. It will be very cool to see the old bad ass Dinosaur on the silver screen terrorizing us once more.
Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World will tell a story that doesn’t follow or acknowledge the previous two films. It is a direct sequel to the very first Jurassic Park movie that was directed by Steven Spielberg.
The director told the site that “This movie is her Unforgiven.” He also said that the dino is 22 years older, “But she’s not limping around.” He went into a little detail, explaining,
“We took the original design and obviously, technology has changed. So, it’s going to move a little bit differently, but it’ll move differently because it’s older. And we’re giving her some scars and we’re tightening her skin. So, she has that feeling of, like, an older Burt Lancaster. And this movie is her Unforgiven.”
When asked if he got to build the dinosaur again, he said,
“We got to build everyone from the ground up because technology has changed so much that everything is a rebuild. And I got to bring in dinosaurs that I’ve always thought deserved a big scene. There’s an Ankylosaurus in this movie; was a really big scene and that’s just a bad ass dinosaur. And there are others. There’s smaller appearances, some bigger appearances. You know, we have an underwater reptile. I’m sure you’ve heard about that. That thing is pretty cool. We have a new kind of flying dinosaur that no one’s ever seen before, you know, in addition to the Pteranodons that are really scary. And I didn’t want to just throw the kitchen sink at it. Each of these movies has done a good job at just very carefully, in a measured way, increasing the new dinosaurs that you see. But, there’s a lot of dinosaurs in the movie for sure.”
