SPOILERS: Is this what Jurassic Park IV is about?

June 25th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

It seems that JoBlo may have discovered what Universal’s new 3-D Jurassic Park, now aiming for a 2015 release, will actually be about. All we know officially is Director Colin Trevorrow has teased a trip back to Isla Nublar, where JURASSIC PARK originated in Steven Spielberg’s 1993 film, as well as a new dinosaur  that will make us “keep the lights on after you see this movie.”

Trevorrow has also said his goal for the film is to “want people to feel like it’s the last day of 6th grade again.

Read on if you want to see if he does that. This comes from “a trusted and reliable source” of JoBlo’s.


 “Jurassic Park 4 set in present day Isla Nublar, is now an actual theme park, as originally intended by John Hammond in the first film. It garners 10 million visitors per year and is completely safe – until it’s not. The park itself is described as very Sea World-esque and includes an area called the Isla Nublar Lagoon. That means underwater dino’s for the first time. No indication of what kind, but there’s concept art showing one of the aquatic dino’s, as part of a show, jumping out of the lagoon and eating a strung up great white shark like it was a fish for a dolphin at sea world.

As part of a show, you ask? That’s right, folks, this will feature “tamed” dino’s. In fact, our source indicated that the usually menacing Velociraptors (which will finally be muzzled, along with the T-Rex – until they’re not) will actually be used to help fight the threat, which begins in the form of a new dinosaur, not seen in any of the previous films (and not disclosed to us) shows to be much smarter than originally thought and is the main cause of havoc breaking out at the park.

So, to sum it all up, Jurassic Park 4 will take place back on Isla Nublar with a fully operational dinosaur theme park (I’m sure no expense was spared) that’s both prosperous and safe, until a new dinosaur figures out a way to wreak havoc, causing the use of the now tamed Velociraptors (and T-Rex? Unclear) as a means to fighting the threat.

No details yet on any human characters either new or returning, but they more than likely will be key to the story. It almost sounds like a reboot of sorts. It appears that screen writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver might be on to something here.

Jurassic Park IV(in 3D) is set to debut Summer 2015.
