News on the next instalment in the Jurassic World franchise, Jurassic World 3, continues to flood into the fandom thick and fast – with the director Colin Trevorrow teasing this short video on Social Media a few moments ago:

It is safe to say that this small teaser from Colin, which is only eight-seconds in length, has the community erupting with excitement for the new entry in the franchise. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom returned to the roots of the franchise with a focus on more physical puppetry and animatronic work after Jurassic World was criticised for its reliance on CGI for many sequences. It appears this much more practical approach to film making is here to stay – with this clip indicating a high-level of animatronic being produced for the new film. The short clip highlights a variety of natural movements – including the flexing of jaw muscles, the movement of the tongue, and the natural movements of the glass eyeball.
Whilst the animatronic featured in this clip is just a skeleton, it is safe to say that it is more than enough to highlight the level of detail and realism which we can expect from the creatures to populate the film in 2021. There are also a lot of guesses about the nature of the dinosaur itself – with some fans guessing it may be a Corythosaurus or Stygimoloch (however the Stiggy has oblong, goat-like pupils which this does not). Other popular theories include a Baby Triceratops – its narrow skull and beak-like apparatus would make sense – perhaps suggesting we may see a fully-fledged ecosystem for the dinosaurs of Jurassic World 3.
No matter which creature this ends up being, it is safe to say that this small clip will only serve to further build upon our excitement for the upcoming film. With additional Motion Comic segments presumably on the way, and with the working title for the upcoming project now public knowledge, it is safe to say that things are kicking up a gear in the Jurassic production world – with loads more news bound to land in the coming months!
