New Jurassic World VR Experience Coming From Felix & Paul Studios

Felix & Paul Studios, who were behind the 2015 “Jurassic World: Apatosaurus” VR experience is back this year with a new VR experience called “Jurassic World: Blue”. This new VR experience will be a companion piece to this June’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

While the studio’s history is relatively short, it has been around long enough to get into the business. of sequels. In 2015, it produced “Jurassic World: Apatosaurus,” a companion piece to Universal’s franchise reboot “Jurassic World.” Now, it’s putting the finishing touches on “Jurassic World: Blue,” a companion piece to the upcoming “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” that will put viewers in the action with photorealistic CG dinosaurs created by Industrial Light & Magic.

“With the first ‘Jurassic World’ piece, the viewer would kind of just stand still and witness the dinosaurs around them,” says Austin Barker, EVP of creative content for Universal Pictures. “It was groundbreaking at the time, but we’ve come so far since then. I think this new experience is going to blow people’s minds.”

The title of the new experience is an obvious giveaway of what to expect. Instead of the Apatosaurus, this time it will be centered around the velociraptor, Blue. A possible setting for the VR experience could be in the jungle of Isla Nublar where Owen first comes across Blue during the rescue mission. There we would be able to see the remains of the old Jurassic Park Ford explorer.

Dr Pepper Unveils Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Collectible Cans and Reveals Full Indoraptor Design!

The Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom merchandise tie-ins keep roaring in!

When I visited New York Toy Fair I heard a rumor that the soda company Dr. Pepper had a large partnership with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and that the campaign would be launching soon. Allegedly, Dr. Pepper products would make a ‘subtle’ appearance within the film, and there would be a more aggressive co-branded marketing campaign with their food products this Spring. As Dr. Pepper cans were spotted in a recent video from the Dinosaur Protection Group, it was only inevitable products would show up in stores soon after.

Thanks to the Dr Pepper Reddit, we have a picture of the entire collectors can lineup!

The four dinosaurs expected to standout the most in Fallen Kingdom each have their own can: the Tyrannosaurus Rex, Velociraptor “Blue”, Stiggy the Stygimoloch (who is said to have a more heroic role), and the ‘villainous’ new hybrid the Indoraptor. Each can features unique background art, and a detailed and exciting render of one of the aforementioned dinosaur species.

This has given us our clearest look at the Indoraptor yet, which was previously teased during the Super Bowl trailer, and shown off fully in toy form. In the render above, he has a menacing quadrupedal prowl, with a similar gait of the maned wolf or a predatorial cat which looks quite intimidating and unique. While I prefer ‘real’ dinosaurs to hybrids, I’m quite excited to see more from the Indoraptor, and this excellent artwork has only made me more eager!

It’s currently unclear when the promotion fully kicks into gear, but products have already made their way on to store shelves and into homes:

We have a T-Rex. #drpepper #jurassicworldfallenkingdom #marketinglove

First Look at Classic Jurassic Park Toys Coming from Mattel!

The Mattel Jurassic World toys do not hit shelves until April 16th, however that hasn’t stopped some early items from slipping through the cracks!

While the majority of this years toy line was revealed at New York Toy Fair, that did not included exclusive assortments. One of the most anticipated lines is the ‘Jurassic World: Legacy Collection‘, which are toys based upon the first three Jurassic Park films! This line will be highly sought out by collectors, and it is exclusive to Target in the United States (availability worldwide may vary).

Only one item has shown up in stores so far: the Extreme Chompin’ Tyrannosaurus Rex – however the back of its packaging reveals Robert Muldoon and Alan Grant from Jurassic Park, both packed with a Compsognathus from The Lost Wolrd! Also from The Lost World is the male juvenile Tyrannosaurus Rex, and the Pachycephalosaurus.

The Jurassic World Facts App has revealed other dinosaurs coming to the Legacy Collection this year as well: from Jurassic Park 3 there is a male Velociraptor, Pteranodon, and a large Spinosaurus (the exact size of the toy is unknown). Additionally, from The Lost World there is the male tiger striped Velociraptor. It remains unclear if there will be dinosaurs from the first Jurassic Park (other than the large T. rex), but the line also includes Ellie Sattler and Ian Malcolm.

Check out the rest of the pictures below, and stay tuned for more toy announcements in the future, as both Walmart and Toys R Us* have exclusive toys.

*The fate of the Toys R Us toys currently remains unknown, as the company is closing every store in the US.

New Behind the Scenes Previews of the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Soundtrack!

Over the past few days, Jurassic World composer Michael Giacchino has hard at work recording the Fallen Kingdom score.

While the recording session has been occurring behind closed doors at the world famous Abbey Road Studios, director JA Bayona and Michael Giacchino himself have been sharing previews online. Following up on the first preview from Wednesday, Giacchino posted an updated reprisal of ‘Ye Old Visitor Center‘ yesterday which again returns to the classic Jurassic Park themes with an uneasy and somber tone.

Moments ago, JA Bayona shared another sample of work, this time a new track which apparently ends the film. Listen to both below!

If JA Bayona’s tweet is to be taken literally, and that music closes out the film before the credits roll, then it’s safe to expect quite the dramatic closing scene, setting up a higher stakes Jurassic World 3.

While it’s too soon to speculate about the third film in the latest Jurassic trilogy, this certainly has us curious. Of course, this tease also has us eager to hear more of the soundtrack from Fallen Kingdom – Giacchino has had no small task set out in front of him: creating music for Nublars demise. Whatever new themes and classic reprisals close out the home and setting of Jurassic Park it is sure to be bittersweet.
