"Jurassic World" will be the first film within the "Jurassic Park" franchise to come out since 2001, and it has been a very, very lengthy process to get this movie off the ground.
Now that we're more than halfway through 2014, we are finally getting photos online that confirm that this movie is coming to cinemas with full force.
The broad synopsis of this outing of domesticated dinosaurs is that "Jurassic World" takes place 22 years after the first film and features the island of Isla Nublar hosting a functional park/resort which takes in thousands of guests every day, as originally envisioned by John Hammond.
But we can't just have a "Jurassic Park" film where everything goes according to plan, so the park's geneticists apparently create a new dinosaur and, well you can guess what happens next (spoiler alert, it probably escapes and eats people).
Over the last couple of days, some images have leaked online that are giving viewers a small glimpse at the features listed withing this fully-functional nature resort. The brochure lists most of the dinosaurs that inhabit the park (I'm upset they didn't list Velociraptor) and gives a nice disclaimer to not "throw objects into the exhibits". Kids these days.
On a side note, I would totally be first in line for the dinosaur petting zoo.
Since "Jurassic Park" was the first live-action movie I saw in theaters, this franchise holds a special place in my heart and it gets me super pumped to see a fresh take on this franchise. I'm trying so hard not to be biased, but it's probably not convincing.
The plot synopsis makes it sound like this film won't simply be a rehash of the last three films, and it may throw in some modern themes as well.
If it's not apparent, I am thrilled that this film is being made and I'll certainly be at the midnight premiere for it.
Will it be a family friendly film?
Well, if I managed to enjoy "Jurassic Park" at the age of one, my answer is yes.
And just one more thing: DINOSAUR PETTING ZOO.
"Jurassic World" opens in cinemas everywhere June 12, 2015 and stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, and BD Wong.
