Jurassic World brings back the original T-Rex from Jurassic Park

Everyone remembers the first time they saw Jurassic Park. More than likely, they remember one scene in particular: Our heroes are getting driven through the park when their cars stop moving. The rain is pouring down and the night is black. A cup full of water shakes, a perfect ripple from its center. With a crash of lightning, we get our first glimpse at the mighty T-Rex.

Colin Trevorrow, director of the upcoming Jurassic World, is looking to bring audiences that same sort of thrill when the dinosaur theme park reopens this June. Speaking with Slashfilm, Trevorrow said the T-Rex from the original Jurassic Park is alive and well, “The T. rex that’s in the film is the T. rex from the original Jurassic Park. She is 22 years older. But she’s not limping around.”

The original Jurassic Park was released in 1993, so you might be hard pressed to recognize a dinosaur from that long ago. Trevorrow and his crew hope that isn’t the case. He says they’ve added onto the original design of the dino, since technology has come a long way in the past two decades. The director also indicated his team added some scars and tightened up the T-Rex’s skin to give her the “feeling of, like, an older Burt Lancaster. And this movie is her Unforgiven.”

Trevorrow goes on to say that there will be other, new dinosaurs in the film, dinosaurs that haven’t yet been seen in the franchise’s three previous movies. They include an underwater dinosaur seen in recent trailers, an Ankylosaurus, and a flying dinosaur that apparently no one has ever seen before.

Jurassic World is set on Isla Nublar, the same island setting used in the original film. In the present, the park is a fully-operational dinosaur theme park that has been open for ten years. Declining attendance leads to a corporate decision to genetically create new dinosaurs. Obviously, this goes horribly wrong. Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Vincent D’Onofrio. It will be released on June 12, 2015.
