A familiar face will be dropping by in Jurassic World.
Colin Trevorrow, director of the upcoming Jurassic World, is looking to bring audiences a throw back thriss when the dinosaur theme park reopens this June. Speaking with Slashfilm, Trevorrow said the T-Rex from the original Jurassic Park is alive and well, “The T. rex that’s in the film is the T. rex from the original Jurassic Park. She is 22 years older. But she’s not limping around.”
“The T. rex that’s in [‘Jurassic World’] is the T. rex from the original ‘Jurassic Park.’ She is 22 years older. But she’s not limping around. […] We took the original design and, obviously, technology has changed. So, it’s going to move a little bit differently, but it’ll move differently because it’s older. And we’re giving her some scars and we’re tightening her skin. So, she has that feeling of, like, an older Burt Lancaster. And this movie is her ‘Unforgiven.’ “
