The first Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer has yet to be released, but that hasn’t stopped new information from making its way online, this time courtesy of the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom augmented reality book by Carlton Kids. The description of the book doesn’t reveal a ton of info, but it does confirm the appearance of an exciting new dinosaur: the Baryonyx.
“Carlton’s official Augmented Reality book is jam-packed with exclusive movie imagery and background facts, and lets you experience original Jurassic World dinosaurs through mind-blowing next-generation, fully interactive Digital Magic. Learn how to bond with and train alpha Velociraptor “Blue”, then use her as your protector and guide as you encounter other dinosaurs through the app. From brand-new movie dinosaur characters including awesome Baryonyx and a terrifying new hybrid breed, to old favourites like T. Rex and Stegosaurus, this Jurassic World AR book will wow readers all over again.”
The Baryonyx is bipedal and carnivorous, reaching lengths of over 30 feet long and 10 feet tall. Though it hasn’t yet been seen in the Jurassic Park films, it still has an interesting relationship with the franchise: The dinosaur was almost the main antagonist of Jurassic Park 3, but the idea was scrapped in favor of the larger Spinosaurus. Artwork of the Baryonyx was also created for the Jurassic World website, though there’s no guarantee that will be the look of the creature in the sequel.
A second dinosaur was also revealed by the book, but details remain scarce, only noting an all-new hybrid dinosaur will be seen. Speculation seems to point to this being the ‘Indoraptor,’ which was recently trademarked by Universal, presumably for merchandising purposes.
