Today I compared our article on JW with the one on wikipedia. One thing was clear to me. We need someone who will take the responsibility for writing the articles about . And we need one now.
Our articles , Jurassic World/Rumours and Jurassic World/Production are in a very bad shape. We need someone who can write properly and will keep the articles free of vandals and update them as soon as there is new trustworthy news.
Who thinks he/she can do this.Read more >
Hello everyone, I was wondering what your thoughts about the plot-line for Jurassic World would be? I have several moments and plot elements that I think will be used, let's see what you think.
Main Overview & Known Material:
Okay, everyone pretty much knows that a new, fully functional Jurassic-themed amusement park, Hotel-resort, golf club, and tourist attraction is fully functional, called Jurassic World. Several photos of a new map of Isla Nublar have been released, and original Jurassic Park fans are overjoyed to finally have this film made. Anyway, several cast members have also been named, such as Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Omar Sy, Irrfan Khan, and B.D. Wong (thankfully returning). Little to no elements are known about their c…Read more >
Here are some more pictures: http://www.scified.com/site/jurassicworld/jurassic-world-reveals-shown-at-la-licensing-expo-2014
And here is a pic actually posted by Trevorrow which shows the shadow of a dinosaur's head (Diabolus?) http://www.independent.co.uk/incoming/article9545692.ece/alternates/w620/jurassic.jpgRead more >
I was looking up stuff about the new film earlier today and found these pictures. You can see them to the right.
These are from the new Jurassic Park film. What do ya'll think of these?Read more >
SOme of the filming is in an abandoned theme park. This could be a new attraction, or possibly one of the old ones from the original park. The question is, what will it be called?Read more >
According to SciFied the ruins of the Visitor Center will appear in .
First of all, I think that will be great. However, I am very afraid that the door of this Visitor Center will still be intact. Because if it is, it will contradict with the events of Jurassic Park: The Game. In T. rex Showdown! Rexy destroyes the stairs, bites of a piece of railing and bursts through the Center's front; destroying the door and a piece of the skulped skeleton above it.
If the Visitor Center was back in use, it could be that the front was repaired. However, the buildings is probably in ruins and found by characters who are lost in the jungle. So, I don't think anyone would bother to repair it.
What do you think. Would the intact front of the Visitor Center be e…

On the first day of Jurassic June, a tweet send by the Twitter account of jurassicworld.org has photo sent by Phil Tippett according to them.
From what is seen it appears he's been working on the model of a juvenile Triceratops and the photo has watermark with the words "JW".
I don't know if this is legit, but I feel it is worth sharing if it truly is.
UPDATE: It is confirmed by the people over the account that this is not a legit photo! The image is from a Behind the Scenes special of the original Jurassic Park!Read more >
It seems that the plan to recreate woolly mammoths is already in progress. Not just talking and planning, but actual progress. Three genes from the mammoth have already been migrated into elephant cells. In three years, we could have a mammoth-elephant hybrid embryo ready to be implanted into an Asian elephant uterus.
I emailed George Church (the scientist doing the project) to see if it was true. And it was indeed true. You can see his email in the thumbnail.
Instead of trying to recreate a full mammoth genome (pretty much impossible), he is instead creating a mammoth-elephant hybrid genome, which is much easier. George Church's TED talk explains this further. The genome-editing method he uses is known as CRISPR.Read more >
I don't know the legitimatacy of this source but here it is: https://imgur.com/gallery/vXyIz/newRead more >
Note: Possible spoilers if you didn't figure that out already.
So this happened today.
Take it with a grain of salt. JobLo is supposedly a reliable site but this also sounds heavily based on the old script. Probably not worth it to add these details to the wiki yet, but let's hear what you guys think about it.Read more >
So I saw this: http://www.jurassicworld.org/?id=121 recently and thought it was worth sharing. Does anyone know anymore about this concept art?

At 30 July 2010 THE8PURPLE2 created a Facebook page for Park Pedia. We all thought it would be the perfect medium to promote this wiki and attract new members.
The Facebook page can be found here: Jurassic Park Wiki.
This wiki is in a terminal shortage of active knowledgeable editors and admins. So, I really wanted to give it a try.
For the more than last year the fb page had an update almost every day. Single handedly, with some short help from Kabilan29, I made sure the members had funny/interesting updates every day.

However, my time wasn't well wasted. After all that time spend, we have yet to recieve our 200th like. Furthermore, the closest thing to new members it attracted was some Redneck fundamentalist complaining that we talked about ev…
I see many comics are not finished we can all help by going on amazon as they have pretty much all of the available to buy post links inks in the comments belowRead more >
This wiki still needs a lot of work. There are countless of edits I'd like to make, but most of the time I don't have time or energy to do all the research and write the whole thing down. I wish that other, I mean new non-admin users, would help in this huge undertaking. However, most new users only add (useless) categories, speculation or reduntant statements. Still, I like to believe that those people are real Jurassic Park fans that would love to help us if they knew what to do and were better motivated. How do we manage that?
Wikia tried to give us a hand and gave us Badges! Badges are a very nice idea to encourage users to be more active and get some reward for their work. However, I have seen that it isn't working. The current Wikia Ba…Read more >
Colin Trevorrow said on Twitter that they are gonna create a new documentary film about recreating dinosaurs!
The main reason I'm interested in Jurassic Park is because the dinosaurs are brought back to life. Until Primal Carnage: Genesis is finally released, there is no (serious) other dinosaur franchise about that topic.
When I saw the news, I thought that Trevorrow is a little late. In 2012 the History Channel made the docu film Jurassic Park: The True Story and Discovery made Dinosaurs: Return To Life?. There haven't been great breakthoughs since then, so what is left to tell.
Still, I think a lot can happen in the coming year before Trevorrow starts to work on the docu film. Jack Horner's team has discovered that iron in dinosaur tissue can prese…

In The Lost World:Jurassic Park (film), the men on the boat that took the t rex over to San Diego where found dead with no explanation whatsoever. In the original script, instead of the T Rex, it would be Velociraptors, who killed the crew on the boat. We don't see or hear from Velociraptors so either it wasn't them, or there are Velociraptors in San Diego. So what do you think killed the men, tell me about it below.Read more >
Alright, I know that the three major canons (Novel, Film, Trespasser, etc.) are different in several ways, but hear me out; specifically in the Trespasser and Film canons, there aren't as large of differences as people think (major dates being the main difference, but they are most certainly NOT mentioned in the films, and therefore, the actual dates are up for grabs). Now, the Wookieepedia (the Star Wars wiki) clearly states in it's articles that many things that don't coincide with the main timeline/canon are simply retconned. I don't see why things are so much different between the Film and Trespasser canons. Any thoughts on this?
Thanks and good to be back.

As the title says, Chris Pratt has offically been confirmed to star in Jurassic World. He will be co-starring alongside Bryce Dallas Howard. As you may or may not know, the film is set for release on June 12, 2015. 514 days to go!

Despite our rules against it, many editors are still adding speculation and useless categories to articles. I have a feeling that these editors are simply trolls and vandals trying to piss off admins.
In order to enforce this, I will start giving blocks to people who disobey these rules. For first-time offenders, I will give a 3 day block, then a week-long block if they continue, then a month block if they continue , then an infinite block for continuing after that.Read more >

Tomorrow, December 4 2013, Wikia will switch to Fluid layout.
You can read all about it @ Fluid layout is arriving on December 4.
The main change is that the articles become more wider and the letters a bit bigger. I think we don't need to prepare our mainpage and stuff for this change.
If our main page isn't compatible with Fluid, I hope we will all work together 2morrow to set things right.
good luck team,

Now we all know that Jurassic Park was made with kids as their major target audience in all canons, but they seem to differ from there. In the novel, it seems like Hammond wants to charge $2,000-$5,000 a day to visit his park, even saying "And I'll tell you, Henry, they'll love it. At least, the rich ones". This would also explain why there was only a small hotel (Safari Lodge) on the island, and the helipad to bring visitors to the island.
In the film however, Hammond seems to want his park to appeal to everyone in the world, even building an airstrip and cruise liner berth on the island, with the helipad used only for VIPs. I believe he had more than one hotel (from maps, the Safari Lodge and Iguanodon Inn are the two that always show up…Read more >

As Jurassic World nears to begin production this Winter, casting has begun on the long awaited fourht installment.

Is it a sign for something new in Jurassic World? If they are willing to connect Megladon and Wolly Mammoths to the franchise for a game, whose to say not a movie as wellRead more >
Has anyone else noticed how in-depth the Trespasser team really went into the Jurassic Park universe, even though they did have some flaws in the game-film continuation. Anyway, they went so far into the Jurassic Park franchise to include the most minor and unnoticed details from both the films and novels, such as the mentioning of Millipore Plastic Products on shipment crates, a Biosyn logo and a crashed Helicopter, the third Cray XMP from the novels, and so much more! This dedication, along with Richard Attenborough amazing re-portrayal of Hammond made Trespasser one of my favorite games and all time favorite Jurassic Park Game. Anyone else think so?Read more >
Given that the Jurassic Park franchise is rushing headlong into a new era, I've decided that a wiki design change should happen to reflect this. It'll make the wiki look up-to-date to visitors, and I can imagine that there will be a lot of visitors arriving over the coming months. I've already started by sticking the Jurassic World logo on the background. It's not perfect, but it can be a placeholder for the time being. Your feedback is important. This is your wiki after all, so if you want to see some changes, now is your chance :)
Some changes I was thinking of implementing:
- Color changes. The Jurassic World logo is clad in blue and shining silver, so maybe the wiki colors could change to mimic this?
- Main page stuff:
- A countdown template. Basicall…
Last I checked, its coming out in 2015 in June, around a lot of 'as of now obvious' tough competion.

Can it survive in such competitive conditions?Read more >

Greetings new and old members of Park Pedia. Are some of you playing Jurassic Park Builder? Jurassic Park: Builder is a social game for JP fans.

For the most part, I think that the film portrayed most of the novel's characters perfectly, such as Richard Attenborough as John Hammond, although he could've been a little greedier and darker, and Wayne Knight as Dennis Nedry. However, certain characters I don't think represent the same characters nearly as well, such as Robert Muldoon. I love Muldoon in the film, played by Bob Peck, but I don't feel like he's the same character as the novel Muldoon. Robert Muldoon is more like an aged hunter, 50-55 years old, with a steel-gray mustache and an alcoholic addiction, but brilliant anyhow, and continously hunting and serious. I am most reminded of Muldoon from the novel when I see Jaws, because Robert Shaw's character, Captain Quint, strikin…Read more >
Jurassic Park is a science fiction franchise. Its creator, Michael Crichton, mostly wrote science fiction novels. His novels feature time travel, cloning dinosaurs, schrinking humans and alien pathogens.
Nonetheless, many of his future history novels have medical or scientific underpinnings, reflecting his medical training and science background. Crichton often performed years of study before writing a novel (see Jurassic_Park_(novel)#Writing).
Because Michael Crichton made sure he was very informed about the latest dinosaur discoveries, his dinosaurs looked very different from what other media showed. The Brachiosaurus isn't a cold blooded slow creature that lives in a swamp. The Tyrannosaurus rex hasn't an upright wallaby/kangaroo posture. T…Read more >
Hi! My name is Brandon Mollica. You may remember me from the Isla Sorna Survival stories I wrote a few years ago on the JPFanon Wiki. My passion for Jurassic Park has never died and never will no matter what. Therefore I decided to make a fan series about Jurassic Park, but I never was able to think of an idea that hasn't been done before...until today! Let us rewind back to Jurassic Park 3. Remember Ellie's son, Charlie Degler? Well believe it or not he is the main protagonist of the series. After doing some math I discovered that the present day Charlie Degler would be the same age as me. Not one fan film, fan fiction, parody, or anything created by the fans of the Jurassic Park franchise ever dived into the possibility of Charlie Degler…Read more >

I would like to have videos in the articles about the JP: The Game scenarios, JP: Operation Genesis missions etc.
I have given up all hope that I or anyone else on this wiki will once create walkthrough videos. Therefore, we'll have to use videos that already exist on YouTube.
Of all JP games multiple walkthough film series exist. I would like to vote together wich we are gonna use.
This is a list of things I would like to see in our videos:
- Videos shouldn't be blurry.
- Videos should have 720p quality.
- Full screen if possible.
- No voice commentary unless helpfull.
- Videos should show how the game and interface looks, not how well the player finishes the game.
So, please browse and choose the best.Read more >
People often try to explain the failure of , Terra Nova or Disney's Dinosaur with bad storytelling, bad acting, absence of a T. rex, bad CGI etc. While this might be true to some extent, I don't think these things are the main reasons.

Did you know Proceratosaurus exists in the film canon?
The name "Proceratosaurus" is seen on a map of Jurassic Park and in the Cold Storage Room.
Could someone make a picture of "Proceratosaurus" in the Cold Storage Room? On the internet I could only find a picture from JPLegacy, and we now how sensitive they get if you use their content. I would really appreciate it if one of our users could do the job.
What I wanted to tell.
Proceratosaurus is never seen in the film. It also doesn't appear in any Jurassic Park: The Game material. However, in we saw a quite similar dinosaur: Ceratosaurus
Ceratosaurus is, for the untrained eye, very similar to Proceratosaurus. Both have a horn on the tip of their nose.
I think, for the good of the story, it would b…

What have we learnt about JP4 so far:
- March 20: According to a Tweet by Colin Trevorrow, there will be no feathered dinosaurs in this film.
- May 3: Colin Trevorrow tweeted a picture of Kauai with the word "NUBLAR". Many people deduced from this that JP4 would take place on Isla Nublar
- June 18: Universal unviels their placeholder logo for the fourth film at a Licensing Expo in Las Vegas. It shows a T.rex
I am seeing a pattern here. JP4 will be set in Nublar. It will have a T.rex. It will have scaly Raptors.What is Trevorrow doing! He seems to be paying homage to the original movie, by remaking it. just this remake will be 22 years later, using CGI only and without taking into acount current discovery.
What did we have in the last films:

Ever since Jurassic Park was released, T. rex has reigned in our imaginations as the king of the dinosaurs. It was pretty awesome, but maybe overrated. A lot of dinosaurs have been overshadowed by the tyrant lizard king. Giganotosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus, Torvosaurus, Allosaurus,, Carnotaurus, Fasolasuchus, Quetzalcoatlis, Tylosaurus, Shonisaurus, Albertosaurus, Gorgosaurus, Mapusaurus, Majungasaurus, Ceratosaurus, Ekrixinatosaurus - there were a lot of cool dinosaurs and other forms of prehistoric reptile that T. rex has overshadowed. They deserve the spotlight.
There was also one that cast a shadow on all the other carnivorous dinos, a creature that was larger than all the others. Spinosaurus was the mightiest dinosaur the world has never known. The only know…Read more >
I'm on Team Rex! Spinosaurus is hateful! T.Rex was just minding his own buisness, trying to eat when some humans came up, and he thought that they were going to eat HIS parasauralophus! He tried to chase them away, then spinosaurua attacked and KILLED T.Rex! In Jurassic park 4, I think T.Rex should be the main dino! If you think otherwise, please comment!Read more >
Ok check this out. I'm sure there's a lot of people asking the question for years now. But I'm going to ask it now.
What makes up the T-Rex Roar? What sounds did they use to make it's growling and it's iconic bellowing roar that was used only in the first film and the Video Game. It is one of the most famous roars next's to Godzilla's roar and Leo the Lion of MGM. But what animal noise were use to make up the T-Rex and growling. Or the roar from the T-Rex from Dino Crisis or Tina Rex from Amazing World of Gumball?
But I want to know is what makes up the T-Rex Roar and growing sounds?

I done alot of thinking about what island in the Pacific would be the best choice for Isla Nublar, or the site of Jurassic Park if one were to make the park into a reality.
