‘Jurassic World’ Update: Chris Pratt’s Raptor Squad & Indominus Rex Explained

There are some viewers who are claiming that the premise of “Jurassic World” is too far from being plausible with the creation of the Indominus Rex and the way Velociraptors can now be tamed. However, a dated source resurfaced based on the original novel where the 1992 predecessor and the 2015 successor were based on. Read on to know more about the explanation of such movie theory.

Despite the growing anticipation of “Jurassic World” being one of the much awaited Block Buster films of 2015, some people have grown to be skeptical of its general premise. At first, Universal teased how there will be a new dinosaur created by human technology, of which they recently released its name the Indominus Rex. It was then followed by a speculation that Chris Pratt’s character, Owen, is a dinosaur specialist who could train Velociraptors. Despite how enticing those plot points may be, aren’t they going too far? Could the director Colin Trevorrow overlooked the main narrative where “Jurassic Park” was based on, which is the 1990s novel by Michael Crichton? The answer is no.


On a special feature by Cinema Blend, they managed to dissect where creative helmsman Colin Trevorrow got the premise of his upcoming blockbuster movie, “Jurassic World.” Courtesy to a “sharp Reddit user,” it has been unveiled that a sequence in the 1990 book tackled John Hammond, played by the late Richard Attenborough in the 1993 film, and Dr. Henry Wu’s, played by BD Wong, debate regarding the modification of the dinosaur’s genetic makeup for the Jurassic Park. In the original plot played by author Michael Crichton, Dr. Wu wanted to create a park where dinosaurs are “domesticated.” It resulting to the creation of a Jurassic Park that’s akin to a “petting zoo.”However, John Hammod negates his suggestion by implementing his vision that he wants a park that is “more adrenaline-friendly.”

Now, checking on the plausibility of the premise, John Hammond’s InGen steps out of the picture and is now headed by Masrani Global, making “Jurassic World” happen 22 years later. Also this time, Dr. Wu had the freedom to put his suggestions to existence. This then creates the possibility of having the “Guardians of the Galaxy” star tame the wild and smart Raptors. On the other hand, they were also able to create another dinosaur kind called the Indominus Rex. The said dinosaur developed the habit of killing as a form of habitual sport. Despite the fact that the film’s scientist’s mindsets appear to have reached mastery when it comes to altering the genetic makeup of dinosaurs,. It’s safe to recap what Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) said in the original film “Life finds a way.”

From those facts, one can now understand that “Jurassic World” still developed its premise based on the original narrative written by Crichton. It’s now clarified that having tamed Raptors and having genetically modified dinosaurs in the film are not farfetched ideas.

“Jurassic World” premieres in theaters on June 12, 2015.
