Universal Studios just casually dropped the first five minutes of the next “Jurassic World” film. That’s right, the third chapter to the “Jurassic Park” sequel trilogy’s opening scene can be watched right now. It’s certainly going to make a bigger splash than a couple minute long teaser and should give fans something to satiate them until next year.
The Prologue, as it’s called, opens to something we have surprisingly never seen before in the entirety of the “Jurassic Park” franchise – the actual Jurassic period. Or, at least I think it’s that period. The thing about real life dinosaurs is that all the cool ones were spread across millions of years, but this is a “Jurassic World” movie, so don’t you dare try to apply real science to my made-up dinosaur films.
The video’s synopsis reads, “This original 5 min prologue to Jurassic World Dominion, directed by Colin Trevorrow, rockets audiences back 65 million years into the past to experience the world before humans existed—and offers a glimpse of a world in which dinosaurs are living among us. The story will continue in cinemas this Summer.”
The studio has kept the plot under wraps, but judging by how the video ends, we’ll be seeing dinosaurs and man… coexisting. This is certainly an interesting angle to take and one that could lead to some fun worldbuilding. We’ll have to wait awhile as the film won’t hit theaters until June of next year, but until then, we can watch a T-Rex destroy a drive in to keep us happy.
