There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

An Update About ‘Jurassic World’ Productions and Note to Fans Amidst Current Circumstances

We’re living in unique, uneasy, uncertain, and unprecedented times.

Due to the global spread of COVID-19, better known as the ‘Coronavirus’, and the widespread public safety precautions being enacted across the globe, most industries have ground to a halt. While we know it can be frustrating to know delays are looming on the horizon, it’s important to remember how crucial it is to put the health and safety of others first. ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ has halted filming, and will likely see a delay as the global pandemic continues to be an issue, ‘Jurassic World: Live Tour’ has been formally shutdown and cancelled, and the fate of ‘Camp Cretaceous’ remains unknown as DreamWorks has shifted to work from home.

In these times of social distancing, it’s easy to feel isolated – and it’s up to us find new ways to entertain, support, and interact as the world experiences this together. In that sense, we’ve all never been closer together. Be safe, help flatten that curve, stream more Netflix than ever before, and turn to the Jurassic community online if you’re looking for a distraction. We’ll be here.

To accompany this, we’ve decided to to publish director Colin Trevorrow’s note to the ‘Dominion’ crew – his words not only apply to those working on the film, but to the fans in the community. Read his words below, and stay safe out there.


Crew,

I know most of us were together Friday night when the news broke, but now that we’ve all had a chance to process, a quick note.

One of the things I’ve found to be true, time and again, is that opportunities can be found in the worst of news. Sometimes it’s an opportunity to appreciate something you may have taken for granted. Or just to take a step back and look at the world around you and your place in it. While this is a frustrating delay—especially as we’ve started to hit a real stride together—I hope all of us take a moment to recognize how lucky we are to tell stories for a living. Especially stories with dinosaurs in them. It’s a gift.

The most invigorating surprise for me on this production so far is how strong we are together. This crew is a well-oiled machine of human ingenuity, the kind of rare army my mentors have built over decades of work together. But every part of our group matters equally—none of us are expendable or replaceable. That’s why we’re being so careful. I want to finish the game with the team I took the field with.

So take care of yourselves, be vigilant. Value this time with your partners and children. Call your parents. We’re making a film about the need for all living things to take care of each other, with our own survival in the balance. It’s a message that matters.

Thank you again for your brilliant work so far. We’ll finish the job together soon.

  1. As John Hammond once said, “All major theme parks have delays. When they opened Disneyland in 1956, nothing worked.”

    These things happen and we knew it would happen because of past Pandemics but what we didn’t know was when. Be patient until all this blows over.

  2. Kind words. I understand as fan and fellow human being that that safely of ALL those involved is more important than filming. Hopefully we all can flatten the curve together by social distancing and avoiding going out in public, etc. I also hope the United States can develop a vaccine and rush it out to all those in need. 2020 has been a rough year! Let’s get through all this together and be kind to one another.

  3. Up to 13,000 people have already died this year!
    There have been over 200,000 cases and hospitalisations this last season!

    Please be careful!

    The Spanish Influenza is NO joke!

  4. Excellent words! I hate this virus!!!!!!! I hate it!!!!! It’s causing their chances of getting the movie fine on time!!!! They better find the cure and fast not only for people around the 🌎 but also our dinosaur friends including rexy and blue and Jeanie if she survived too along with her kids!!!!!

  5. Im such a big fan on jurassic park. And also jurassic world its just a shame about this one. you all wonderfull people who put all the hard work in theses. Hope all are well and stay safe. And lets all hope things. Or i mean LIFE will find a way

  6. This is truly unprecedented. There was never such a strong reaction even when Polio was creeping around suburbia back in the day…
    The point? Either this virus is far and away worse than what we’re being led to believe… Or it’s just part of some bigger, more sinister plan.
    I don’t trust the government and neither should you.
