‘Baby Raptor in the Nursery’ Scene from Jurassic Park Revealed in Rare Storyboards!

Last week we shared storyboards that show an alternate ending for Dennis Nedry in Jurassic Park. Those storyboards were posted by Jurassic Time creator Derrick Davis, who has spent the past few weeks combing through the Early Sequence Storyboard Binder which he won at Phil Tippett’s online auction.

Today Derrick shared a new sequence, one that never made it to the final screenplay but was strikingly similar to the original scene in the novel. The sequence takes place when the park guests are introduced to the baby Velociraptor, which is revealed as so by Chief Geneticist Dr. Henry Wu. In the movie you’ll remember that the guests witness the baby Raptor break out of its shell and are concerned when Dr Wu. reveals the breed.

In these storyboards however, we can see a different scene unfold. It takes place in the Nursery, and an already hatched baby Raptor is perched upon a technician’s shoulder. Check out some highlights below!


Along with the full storyboards which you can make your way through here, Derrick also included the original script pages and a piece of concept art showing the Baby Raptor in action:

As I stated in the previous article, it’s incredibly exciting to see such old material now come into the spotlight for us all to see. If you liked seeing the above, have a read of the alternate ending to the Nedry vs Dilophosaurus scene, as well as the alternate storyboard shots for the Main Road sequence and an entirely different ending to the movie!

Thanks again to Derrick for sharing these! He also filmed the unboxing of his win, which you can see below:
