Jurassic World Story is Set in a Fully Functional Theme Park on Isla Nublar !

Jurassic World is scheduled to be released in 2015 but had the scoop of last week when they've posted details about the plot. And we don't even need to consider these as "rumors" as Jurassic World Director Colin Trevorrow confirmed all of it in a Slash Film interview! So, no need to say that what is below is full of spoilers and you read it at your own risk! If you really don't want to know anything about Jurassic World, just don't read it. And don't even look at the pics too as a Jurassic World map was leaked with all details about Dinosaurs species, and more!

That said, now that you're warned, let's start by the great news: Jurassic World will happen 22 years after Jurassic Park at Isla Nublar which is now a true dinosaurs theme park and resort, the dream of John Hammond ( played by Richard Attenborough in the first Jurassic Park movie ) became reality!


JURASSIC WORLD will be a real running theme park, complete with a monorail (as teased in recent concept art above), shops, rides, and shows. It's the most popular theme park and a family destination. To get there you have to take a high speed shuttle boat from Florida. Inside the park there are a multitude of activities, including a Dino petting zoo and a Hologram info center where you can learn about the methods they are using to create dinosaurs (an enhanced version of the original one). One of the rides is called a "Gyrosphere" that you can get in and ride around in the wild to get up close to the Dinos.

Colin Trevorrow's Confirmation of fully functional park:

"Yes. Jurassic World takes place in a fully functional park on Isla Nublar. It sees more than 20,000 visitors every day. You arrive by ferry from Costa Rica. It has elements of a biological preserve, a safari, a zoo, and a theme park. There is a luxury resort with hotels, restaurants, nightlife and a golf course. And there are dinosaurs. Real ones. You can get closer to them than you ever imagined possible. It’s the realization of John Hammond’s dream, and I think you’ll want to go there."


Business is good at the park, but the powers that be start to dream up new ways to keep customers coming back; namely by splicing Dino DNA with other dinos (and other species). That becomes the problem. They splice together a T-Rex, raptor, snake, and cuttlefish to create a monstrous new dino that, of course, gets loose and terrorizes the park. Nothing like a little greed and human arrogance to ruin a good thing, right? Dino expert Jack Horner has teased this bad boy since last year and now we have an idea why he says we'll want to "keep the lights on" after seeing it. He may be right.

Colin Trevorrow about crossbred dinosaurs:

"We were hoping audiences could discover this on their own, but yes, there will be one new dinosaur created by the park’s geneticists. The gaps in her sequence were filled with DNA from other species, much like the genome in the first film was completed with frog DNA. This creation exists to fulfill a corporate mandate—they want something bigger, louder, with more teeth. And that’s what they get."

Talking about Dinos these leaked pictures of the map of Jurassic World will tell you more about the species you can expect in the movie and the different areas of the resort.


According to source, there will be lots of Dino on Dino fighting, as some of the Dinos are "good guys" that are trained by Chris Pratt's character. The raptors and T-Rex are among the "trained" good dinosaurs. The big bad dinosaur has instant camouflage abilities, like the cuttlefish, so he blends into the background, is smart like the velociraptor, uses his jaw like a snake, and can terrorize like the T-Rex. Does this mean the new dino will be the ONLY "bad" one? Or will there be more than one? Unconfirmed, but it will be the catalyst that kicks off the peril

Colin Trevorrow about dinosaur behavior:

There’s no such thing as good or bad dinosaurs. There are predators and prey. The T-Rex in Jurassic Park took human lives, and saved them. No one interpreted her as good or bad. This film is about our relationship with animals, how we react to the threat they pose to our dominance on earth as a species. We hunt them, we cage them in zoos, we admire them from afar and we try to assert control over them.

Chris Pratt’s character is doing behavioral research on the raptors. They aren’t trained, they can’t do tricks. He’s just trying to figure out the limits of the relationship between these highly intelligent creatures and human beings. If people don’t think there’s potential in those ideas, maybe they won’t like this movie. But I ask them to give it a chance.

And his message to the fans:

"I know the idea of a modified dinosaur put a lot of fans on red alert, and I understand it. But we aren’t doing anything here that Crichton didn’t suggest in his novels. This animal is not a mutant freak. It doesn’t have a snake’s head or octopus tentacles. It’s a dinosaur, created in the same way the others were, but now the genetics have gone to the next level. For me, it’s a natural evolution of the technology introduced in the first film. Maybe it sounds crazy, but most of my favorite movies sound crazy when you describe them in a single sentence."

"I understand the risks of leaving the safe zone. We’ve all been disappointed by new installments of the stories we love. But with all this talk of filmmakers 'ruining our childhood', we forget that right now is someone else’s childhood. This is their time. And I have to build something that can take them to the same place those earlier films took us. It may not happen in the same way everyone expects it to, but it’s the way I believe it needs to happen."

But, wait, there is more news, always from Slash Film:  "The Jurassic Park series sequel has been shooting for almost two months now and the production has already filmed in The Honolulu Zoo. The movie, which is filming under the working title Ebb Tide, is moving to New Orleans Louisiana for eleven weeks of filming and next week they are scheduled to begin shooting at the old abandoned Six Flags New Orleans theme park...

Six Flags New Orleans has been closed since just before Hurricane Katrina struck in August 2005. The theme park is located in Eastern New Orleans, in the Ninth Ward of the city, off Interstate 10.Since the closing a bunch of film productions have used the park for movie shoots. Most recently the park was used for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes filming."

So, there you have it, all what is known about Jurassic World and why it should be a hell of a ride - and in 3D! - when it will be released in theaters next year!
