Random Trivia For This Title:

  • There is a statue of the character John Hammond, the founder of the InGen genetic company and Jurassic Park. Colin Trevorrow explained this is to specifically honor Sir Richard Attenborough who played the role in Jurassic Park & The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Attenborough had spoken in the past of possibly making another appearance in the franchise but his failing health made it highly uncertain. Unfortunately, Attenborough passed away August 24th, 2014. Hammond is implied to have died prior to the events of the movie, evidently writing Attenborough's death into the franchise as well.
  • For the season two [Parks and Recreation] DVD, Chris Pratt made a behind the scenes video. In the video he reads a fake text from Steven Spielberg about being cast in Jurassic Park 4. Pratt actually was cast as the lead in the 4th Jurassic Park film.
  • "Indominus Rex" means "Fierce/Untamed King" in Latin, after the hybrid dinosaur's erratically destructive and murderous nature.
  • The first Jurassic Park film to not have animatronic dinosaurs created by Stan Winston, as he passed away in 2008. Instead the animatronics were created by effects studio Legacy Effects, a company formed from Winston's former workshop staff. One of the shops in Jurassic World, Winstons, is named in Stan's honour.
  • Jeff Goldblum's character Dr. Ian Malcolm can be spotted on the cover of a book that is read by Zara (Katie McGrath) on the monorail ride in to the park. A copy of the same book, titled "God Creates Dinosaurs" is later shown on Lowery's (Jake Johnson's) desk in the control room when he is first introduced. A book by Malcolm about his first trip to Jurassic Park was mentioned in both The Lost World and Jurassic Park III.
  • The motorbike used in the film made by Triumph was given to Chris Pratt as a gift after filming.
  • The gyrosphere was Steven Spielberg's idea. According to Colin Trevorrow, then Spielberg "wanted to create a way for people to get up close and personal with the animals, to make it a self-driving, free-roaming experience. It loads on a track, but once you're out there, you actually get to navigate around the valley".
  • Bryce Dallas Howard's character is dressed in all white, thus paying homage to Richard Attenborough's character in original film. Both were directors of their respective parks.
  • The first camouflaging dinosaur appears in The Lost World book by Michael Crichton, but the dinosaur was left out of the movie adaptation. In the Lost World book, the Carnotaurus uses a chameleon-like ability to blend into its environment to surprise its victims. In the Jurassic World movie, Indominus Rex uses the same ability in a similar manner.
  • The T-Rex in this film is the same T-Rex from Jurassic Park, which hasn't been seen since the original film (Jurassic Park: The Lost World and Jurassic Park III took place on Isla Sorna and featured their own T-Rexes).
  • Lauren Lapkus improvised the line, "I have a boyfriend." [?] Colin Trevrrow liked the line so much that he kept it in the films final cut.
  • Jurassic Park is one of Chris Pratt's favorite films. The first time he saw it was on its original opening day at the cinema.
  • The concept of sharks being used as dino fodder was Colin Trevorrow's idea, and was inspired by producer Steven Spielberg's film Jaws.
