Set three years after the events of the first movie, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will claw its way into movie theaters next week. Reviews for the second entry into the Jurassic World trilogy are already out, with the critics agreeing to disagree about with the dino-filled movie.
Stars Chris Pratt (Owen Grady) and Bryce Dallas Howard (Claire Dearing) recently attended the press junket for Fallen Kingdom, where the duo sat down for an exclusive interview with SYFY WIRE’s Whitney Moore... and where Pratt revealed he was the proud owner of a cow. Plus, he and Howard gave us a tantalizing preview of the movie.
So, the Isla Nublar park is gone, the dinosaurs are running loose, and there's an impending volcanic eruption threatening the survival of the prehistoric beasts. "Our characters go back to the island because there's an extinction-level event occurring on the island that's going to wipe out all the dinosaurs, and we've got to save them," said Howard.
"She wants to save them. I kind of don't at first, but then I [Owen] end up going because of her [Claire] and my relationship with Blue, and the movie takes off from there," continued Pratt.
When the Avengers: Infinity War actor was asked if he's ever had a connection with an animal similar to what his character has with Blue in the Jurassic World films, Pratt admitted that he has a cow named Baby Girl with whom he has a real connection. However, fear not! He has no intention of feeding her to a raptor. In fact, the opposite may just happen since Baby Girl is a Texas Longhorn.
Speaking about her Jurassic World character, Howard teased: "In the first movie, Claire goes on a pretty significant journey. In the beginning, she looks at these animals as just assets and by the end of them, she really has reconnected with her own humanity and sees these animals for what they are. And I kind of looked at that movie as sort of like this was the birth of her activism. She becomes an activist and she creates something called The Dinosaur Protection Group and she's on a mission in this movie to save these animals."
We then asked if they could genetically engineer a dinosaur to be their personal pet, what would they have them do and what would they name them? Check out our exclusive video to find out.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens in theaters on June 22.
