Jurassic World is Jurassic Park come true: Steven Spielberg + Chris Pratt talk reboot in new featurette
Universal have just released at new featurette for Jurassic World which not only contains interviews with cast members, including Chris Pratt but also the man who first brought Jurassic Park to the big screen Steven Spielberg.
The legendary director, who returns for the fourth film as an executive producer says Jurassic World is Jurassic Park “come true,” as in there is a functioning dinosaur amusement park, with thousands of visitors. The 2:50 min video gives us some scenes for the first time, including one where Pratt’s character claims making genetically modified dinosaurs is “not a good idea”.
We also get to see what it was like the shoot the movie and while there’s inevitably going to be a lot of CGI involved the sets are incredibly impressive as well. Pratt, who admits he was a huge fan of the first film, is like a giddy child when shooting and can be heard joking about how much fun he’s having living out his dinosaur adventure.
The featurette seems to be tugging on the old heart-strings when it comes to nostalgia and compares clips from the original movie, released 22 years ago, to this summer’s release, while cast members wax lyrically about how much they loved the original movie. No doubt in an attempt to get the generations who’ve loved Jurassic Park, to turn up at the cinema in June when it hits screens on 11th of the month.
There seems to be a massive push to make it clear to fans that this isn’t just another installment of the franchise, but is a complete reboot. The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III, which had mixed reviews and Box Office success, existed in the same world as original movie while in this one John Hammond never existed and no-one has been eaten off the toilet.
