Velociraptor (Film Universe)
There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version.

  1. I’m all for more females and diversity in this franchise that sorely needs it (and film in general), so I’m excited for that reason.

    However, I refuse to get more excited until I hear more about the role and watch the film itself. I was super stoked back when Jurassic World announced three supporting female characters, only to have all three feature in what could be considered glorified cameos. Make this woman a scientist, or hunter, or just someone who can get involved with the meat of the story.

  2. Some people say that they are beginning to cast “porn-stars”? Like wtf. Can’t we have good looking characters in the franchise. They are not eye-candy but as long as they can act, I don’t care.

  3. It is great to know, that lot of “fresh” actors got their chances to star in Jurassic franchise.
    However this made me think about something.

    Speculation mode: on

    There was a rumour last year (quickly dismissed, but I still keep it in mind) about JW2 budget being set for 260 million $. If for sake of the theory we will consider this amount to be true, then deduct lead stars wage, costs for the whole crew and supporting actors, there would still be plenty of money left. That would mean, its destination are either special effects or secretly casting some more acclaimed actors. In the end, this could mean return of somebody we know. But this is a very far-fetched theory.
