Velociraptor (Film Universe)
IMG_0136
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…

Colin Trevorrow Shares Video of Baby Nasutoceratops Animatronic from Jurassic World 3!

The hype train has officially left the station! Colin Trevorrow has been quite active on Twitter recently, first fueling the fires about the title of Jurassic World 3 and now giving us another first look at an animatronic that is being prepared for use in JW3 production. Hold on to your butts everyone…we have a BABY NASUTOCERATOPS. Or maybe even a Triceratops! Confirmation on the exact animal species has not been given, but check out just how adorable the little juvenile is in Colin’s tweet below.

It clearly lacks a finishing paint job, but the range of motion on this small machine is incredible. Notice the lifelike way it closes its eyes as it shakes and rattles its head. This first look shows a great deal of promise in both the quality of the animatronics being produced and the story we will be delivered. Because, come on, who is going to say NO to seeing a baby dinosaur (and a practical one at that!)? Eagle-eyed viewers might also notice some sort of tail in the background. To our eyes, it looks a little too skinny to be a velociraptor, so your guess is as good as ours. Could this be the return of the fan favorite dilophosaur?

So far, we know the animatronics for JW3 are being made by John Nolan and his studio, the very same people who made the puppets for Netflix’s The Dark Crystal series. If you watched that show, you know the studio produces some high quality animatronics, and the streak appears to be continuing here.

What are your thoughts on the animatronic? What kind of color scheme do you expect it to have? Do you have any theories on the tail in the background? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. It’s ok, maybe a bit cartoonish. Proportions are a bit odd. If you looks at baby elephants & baby rhinos then this looks very fake. They always play up the cute too much. Baby animals are generally more gauky looking, disportionate… it’s ok, but looks like it belongs in the Flintstones.

    1. NEW HEADCANON: InGen deliberately engineered the dinosaurs so that the younger ones would appear “cuter” to appeal to the public.

  2. Yeah, it looks fantastic. The movement is very impressive. Very convincing…

    But the story hasn’t been since the first part of this trilogy and now they want us to buy that one cargo ship brought a population of animals to the mainland so vast that there will be significant effects to the entire continent? And that companies elsewhere will also be releasing dinosaurs into their own countries??

    What exactly is believable about anything we’ve seen in JW so far?

    From Claire’s very first lines of dialogue in JW, the new trilogy has been ridiculously stupid.

    1. Say, here’s a bright idea: instead of constantly whining and moaning about how “oh, the JW trilogy is AWFUL!” “It’s so STUPID!” “The people who like these movies have cOgNiTiVe DiSsOnAnCe!!!” and all of that stuff, why don’t you actually think about what you would have LIKED to have seen instead? Take all of your criticisms and use them to actually create your OWN story. Try to be BETTER.

      If you’re going to make a complaint about something, you at least ought to have some sort of an idea for an alternative.

  3. Since remembering in the last second movie in the Jurassic World Franchise showing one of the trapped dinosaur scenes in the mansion reveals a baby triceratops with its mother so it’s obviously a triceratops being constructed for Jurassic World 3.
