‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’: New Hybrid Dinosaur Teased

Jurassic World Hybrid Dinosaur
Following completion of principal photography, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom executive producer Colin Trevorrow has just teased a look at a new hybrid dinosaur akin to the first movie’s Indominus Rex – one that appears to be a practical effect.

Trevorrow, who directed the original Jurassic World, congratulated the team working on the new film with a picture of director J. A. Bayona looking at a practical dinosaur. Whether this is an animatronic or a puppet is not clear at this time. The image can be seen below:

One of the criticisms faced by Jurassic World was that, unlike the Jurassic Park films, there weren’t too many animatronics or puppets cleverly inserted amidst the groundbreaking CGI into the movie for the actors to act off of. It appears that with more time to prepare the sequel, Bayona and company are going to find ways to have some “real” dinosaurs on set.

Fans at Jurassic Outpost have speculated that this new dinosaur could be the Velociraptor equivalent of the I. Rex – appropriately dubbed “the Indoraptor” – based on some circumstantial evidence. Given that the Velociraptors are the most famous Jurassic Park dinosaur aside from the T. Rex, it wouldn’t be surprising to see that they’d be next in line to get rebooted in a big way.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens on June 22, 2018. Its cast includes Chris Pratt as Owen Grady, Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing, Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm, B. D. Wong as Dr. Henry Wu, and James Cromwell as Benjamin Lockwood. Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Ted Levine, and Geraldine Chaplin have all been cast in unspecified roles.
