Jurassic Park’s original trilogy was never at a shortage for dinosaurs (except when one got loose here and there), but the sequel to the franchise’s expansion to Jurassic World is flexing its sheer numbers when it comes to the extinct creatures.
Not only will Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom have a man-made dinosaur (genetically-modified to be even more man-made than the rest of the dinosaurs made by foolish scientists), it’ll have “more dinosaurs than you’ve ever seen in all the other Jurassic movies combines,” according to producer Pat Crowley. He’s speaking to that point in a newly-released behind-the-scenes featurette on the dinosaurs of the park, which highlights the creation of the dinos and the vast array of species the film will bring to the screen.
Take a look:
Director J.A. Bayona assures fans that they’ll see the specific T-Rex and velociraptor from the first film while adding on a slew of others, including a mosasaurus, baryonyx, carnotaurus (which fights a sinoceratops, according to star Bryce Dallas Howard), and the comic relief-giving stygimoloch. That’s enough creatures to please any kid entering their dino phase and enough to make saving them from the exploding island a tricky proposition.
The animatronic details and creature design will seem even cooler in hindsight after seeing it in motion when Fallen Kingdom hits theaters on June 22, 2018.
