So, Jack Horner has said a new dinosaur is coming to JPIV, something cool, something creepy. I put up a poll on the Fanon Wiki, and I'll copy it over here.Read more >
This wiki has a problem, and I want we start a discussion about it.
I'm getting REALLY sick of all those users that add articles to tons of (mostly useless) categories in order to get batches.
Categories are used to put related subjects together. At the bottom of an article thumbnails are shown to articles that share categories with the current page. I think it is VERY ungly if I read the Allosaurus article, and Ian Malcolm is among the thumbnails at the bottom (both were in cat 1993).
A huge amount of articles are added to these useless categories:
- Brainy1130's Favorite Pages (stupid!)
- 1993 (toooo general)
- Jurassic Park Trilogy (which includes ANYTHING JP related)
- Synonym Dinosaurs (what is the point of it?)
- Diplodocid (this isn't wikipedia)

Despite distressing rumblings from the Twittersphere and elsewhere that the upcoming Jurassic Park sequel was all but doomed, new information has surfaced that should put wary Jurassic Park fans at ease. A source directly associated with the project reached out to fansite JurassicPark4-movie.com, with news that the film is still in production, but on temporary hiatus following an emotional "rollercoaster" spurred by deliberation between the studio and certain individuals involved with the project. While there have been layoffs, the source confirms that those affected had already completed their work for the film.
The source also silenced rumors that JP4's script was at the center of the quagmire, reiterating that the only known problems have t…Read more >
Now, don't freak out. The last time this happened, the next news we got was the film getting green-lit. I say we wait things out and see what the next step is. Heck, the tweet was deleted minutes after it's creation. That's gotta count for something.
Soon after, the digital asset manager for JP4 tweeted this:Read more >
So, what's it gonna be? I personally hope this new, terrifying dinosaur is a
It'll be perfect, as they can use elements from the Lost World novel, and honestly, it's still pretty epic if they don't. Carnotaurus was super fast, had tough, armor-like skin, and huge, crushing jaws.
But what do you guys think? Please comment with your choices.Read more >
Does anyone know the name of the snake in this scene?
Many people claimed it is a Boa Constrictor. The colours seem to fit that name.
We need to know its name for the article Isla Nublar (Movie canon).Read more >
If anyone knows of one, I'd love to find it. The whole, 60 dollar game for order is kind of ridiculous.Read more >
All the rumors that had been circulating around the net about the possibility of returning to Isla Nublar may have just been proven true with Trevorrow's latest tweet: https://twitter.com/colintrevorrow/status/330038409974386688/photo/1Read more >
Note: This blog does not express the author's opinion on the possibility of cloning dinosaurs. It simply shows a more skeptical view towards it.

- 2 DNA in bones

- 4 Filling in the sequence gaps

- Just because the Cretaceous weevil DNA was similar but still distant from modern weevil DNA does not imply that the DNA was endogenous. It is important to remember that there are many species of beetles, and many have not had DNA sequenced from them yet. It is possible that future BLAST searches will reveal the DNA to be contaminated from modern beetles. Many scientists believe that Cano's lab didn't have proper sterlization. While it is impossible to know for certain without watching…

I was pretty bored recently, and decided to start a work-in-progress replica of a Lindstradt Air Rifle from TLW: JP. It is seen carried by Eddie Carr mainly, but in a few shots with Ian Malcolm. It plays a larger role in the novel, but in both carries extremely lethal darts loaded with venom from the South-Sea Cone Snail.
My version was fairly quick to get the basic idea down, made with supportive cardboard frames and duct-tape rapping the super-structure. It's not finished yet, I still need to add the holographic site ontop, and a few other details. Any thoughts?Read more >
Personally, I would love to see more of Lewis Dodgson and his team, Howard King and George Baselton from The Lost World. I still think that Cameron Thor could reprise his role, and many others would fit King and Baselton's roles well. I don't really think that they were properly portrayed by the InGen Hunters in the film, and much was left unheard of; Dodgson's personality is that he never gives up, never stops until he either gets what he's after, or dies trying. I also think that many animals from the novels could be better used in the fourth film, anyone else think so?Read more >
Why is Jurassic Park soo popular after twenty years?
I would really like to have a real answer to that question. I like Jurassic Park solely because I am fascinated by the resurrection of extinct life. Until Primal Carnage Genesis is released, Jurassic Park is the only franchise that covers that subject.
I know for sure that I am an exception in this. Based on all the fan fictions on the fanon wiki and the edits on this wiki, I know for sure that most Jurassic Park fans don't care about science. All they want to see is dinosaurs killing people.
I want to know why is Jurassic Park so popular among dinosaur fans. When Jurassic Park was rereleased in 3D Universal made $10 million in the opening weekend. In contrast, dinosaur shows like Primeval, Pri…Read more >
I noticed some dinosaur embryos at the beggining of this clip. Does anyone have an idea of their identity?Read more >
Yes, that's right, Jurassic Park 4 has gotten a second art directer, and someone who is familiar with the series. Rick Carter, who worked on the art direction for Jurassic Park (1993) and The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), but was dropped for Jurassic Park /// (2001) in favor of Ed Verreaux, However, it appears that Carter is teaming up with Verreaux to help dead the art production for Jurassic Park 4!
Personally, I think Universal wants to get things done as best they can, and hope that bringing in a veteran to the franchise would help Verreaux understand exactly what they're looking for. And I am glad to hear a good, experienced crew is being put on to complete this. This is exactly what JP4 needs to be successful.Read more >
Now, I don't know if anyone else has memorized the novel's details as well as I have, but there are a few things I'm not absolute about:
- When Tim Murphy is looking through the offices of the visitor's center, he sees an office marked Park Warden, which we all know is Robert Muldoon; however, when the raptors get loose and Muldoon takes control, he goes to an office marked Animal Supervisor and takes out a LAW rocket Launcher and a belt holding six shells. So, why would Muldoon have two offices?
- According to the end of the novel, there were 24 people on the island. Now, if you subtract the inspection team (Hammond, Grant, Sattler, Malcolm, Nedry, Gennaro), there are about 18 personnel left. This includes, according to combined chapters; Maintena…
New post about a new dinosaur from Jack Horner. Does anyone have an idea of what it might be???Read more >
Hi what is your favorite dinosaur? and why?
Mine is spinosaurus because of their size and it killed the T-RexRead more >
This is it! The news we JP fans have been waiting for over a decade to see! Jurassic Park 4 finally has a set date for when they begin filming! Source
In other news:
- Ed Verreaux (production designer for JP///) returns for JP4. 
- David Koepp (who wrote for JP and TLW) will NOT be returning. 
- We have a confirmation of the filming location rumors: Kauai and Baton Rouge, Louisiana:
What are you hoping to see in the movie? I myself hope for some more creatures from the books, and maybe some more Triceratops screen time.Read more >
Today this Ceratosaurus saw JP in 3D! I've seen it in normal, old, and Blu-Ray form, but 3D, that was, heh heh, another dimension! I saw it with one of my family members, and even she admitted it was awesomeness! My only complaint, really, was that the IMAX version was TOO FREAKING LOUD!!!!!!!! I love Jurassic Park with heart, mind, and soul. My computers passwords Jurassic, my image is the yellow JP logo, and my JP collection has over 300 items. JP... Will always be a part of me.
As Rex would say, RRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOAAAAAARRRRRR!!!!!!!!Read more >
I'm thinking about the 4th movie and I wondered: WILL THE INFAMOUS T.REX KILLER SPINOSAURUS RETURN? I'm curious if any of the trademark dinosaurs will return or look the same as in the other movies.Read more >

I just saw Jurassic Park 3D.
And what did I think of it?
HO!!!!! LE!!!!!! COW!!!!!!!!!
IT IS AMAZING!!! JUST . . . AMAZING!!!!!! IT'S THE BOMB!!!! I mean, you hear sounds that you've never noticed before, you can feel the roars and the screams, and you become afraid of scenes that didn't scare you before!!!
The only issue I have with it is that with some scenes, it sounds like some sounds were cut off. But thats only in a few scenes and other than that, IT WAS AWESOME!!!!! I give it a 9.9 out of 10!!!! Go and see it!!!! Go NOW!!!!!
Ps: I think I understand why they brought Jurassic Park back in 3D. Its so that the Jurassic Park spirit can be brought up again and prepare us for Jurassic Park IV. That's my thought, at least.

Anyone gonna go and see Jurassic Park in 3D? I know that I am, after all my last class!!!!!!Read more >
In Jurassic Park: Builder and the upcoming Jurassic Park IV a lot of dinosaurs are featured. The is a group of dinosaurs that has either appeared in the novels of movie material, but haven't got much spotlight until now. I really which the articles of these dinosaur could become a little bigger. I think these should appear in JP:B, JP4 or the JP4 inspired video games.
Here is a list of them, feel free to add more.
- Apatosaurus (main sauropod in both novels)
- Carnotaurus (TLW novel)
- Cearadactylus (JP novel)
- Euoplocephalus (JP novel)
- Maiasaura (seen in both novels)
- Microceratus (JP novel)
- Mussaurus (TLW novel)
- Ornitholestes (TLW novel)
- Othnielia (JP novel)
- Proceratosaurus (seen on Park map)
- Segisaurus (seen on Park map)
- Styracosaurus (JP novel)
Ok, so I'm back for the first time in about a year, posting this hopefully for all of my pals out there. I have been brainstorming about JP4 since I found out it may happen again in 2011, and when I heard about Collin being cast as director, I almost did a backflip! Here's 5 reasons why he won't goof this up:
1. He can keep the movie going at a good pace, so that it slows down, but it can pick right back up with the excitement.
2. No feathered dinosaurs. I know this isn't accurate, but it doesn't seem to fit in right with JP, and that's one reason why audiences liked JPIII less.
3. I can almost guarantee that Trevorow will bring back Rexie. :)
4. He will remain loyal to the characters and their stories, because he proved in Safety Not Guarante…Read more >
I saw a recent article from the Los Angeles Times featuring Jack Horner.
The article quotes Horner about what he thinks about movie dinosaurs:Movie dinosaurs aren't nearly as glamorous as real ones, which were brightly colored.
All dinosaurs in were brown/grey. I never understood that, but Horner explains:"Steven has made the point several times to me that colorful dinosaurs are not very scary. Gray and brown and black are more scary. I worked on the television series Terra Nova with Steven as well, and he did get some color into some of those.
Horner also got some more color in the dinosaurs. In JP and TLW all dinosaurs are grey/brown (at least to the untrained eye). In JP3 all dinosaurs, and particularly the raptors have a lot of colors…Read more >
I think everyone has considered this option, but no-one has wrote about it yet. So, I'll do it.
The raptors in the movies have always been called "Velociraptor". There are a few well known inaccuracies with these creatures:
- The film Velociraptor is 3-4 meters long, while the actual creature was much smaller.
- Alan Grant digs up a Velociraptor in Montana, while it lived in Asia.
In Jurassic Park III the raptors got a make-over. The (probably) male animals had purple heads and a crest of feathers on it. Moreover, these raptors vocalized more than in previous films. Many fans wondered
- Where are these new raptors coming from?
Many explanations roam the cybersphere. Is the continency broken and are the JP-TLW raptors supposed to look like the JPIII raptor…Read more >
Note: This is not a discussion blog. All discussion related to recreating dinosaurs should go on Forum:Cloning dinosaurs. This is simply a step-by-step guide that I have written based on information from this wiki.
1. Look for DNA in bones and amber. Exceptionally well-preserved bones are most likely to contain DNA and protein fragments. Studies by Schweitzer et al have found both proteins and DNA in dinosaur fossils . This means that a Velociraptor/ostrich chimera could potentially be possible.
2. Insert the chimeric embryo into an egg and let it hatch. When the ostrich becomes an adult, it will mate with another chimera. If the male has raptor reproductive organs, the eggs that the female lays will be Velociraptor as well, though most will pro…

No feathers. #JP4
Colin Trevorrow finally revealed something about Jurassic Park IV. He wrote on twitter:
This probably means we won't see (more realistic) Raptors covered with feathers, as we saw in Terra Nova. We don't know if that means he will stick with the JPIII raptor, or he will go old-school and return to the naked JPI and TLW raptors.
I think this is a shame, but what do you all think?
I think new camps have formed among Jurassic Park fans. We already had the Tyrannosaurus and Spinosaurus fanboys that battled with each other. Now we have the fans that think feathers would ruin the raptors and make them look "like big chickens hunting". While the other group thinks the opposite.Read more >
The Burger King is probably gonna realease a series of Jurassic Park collectables when JP 3D is released.
JPLegacy noted the Jurassic Park Logo at the Burger King's Toy webside (look here and scroll down).
When Jurassic Park was released McDonalds produced a lot of toys and boxes that featured Jurassic Park.
When this series of collectables is released... Who is able to buy the Burger King stuff and take pictures of it?Read more >
Yes, it's finally here! After 12 years of waiting for such an announcement, the director for Jurassic Park IV has been announced. It has been confirmed that Colin Trevorrow will be helming the director's seat for the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park series.
Now, for some reactions. How do you feel about this choice? Take note that Trevorrow has only directed a short film, a documentary, a TV movie, and a theatrical film entitled "Safety Not Guarenteed." My issue is that he has never really done any action movies before, nor scary, and his works are usually romantic or comedic as shown by the majority.
Personally, I'm a bit uneasy on the decision, but I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens. From what I have been told, Tre…Read more >
Interesting choice. I'm not familiar with his work, but the article says he's a big JP fan. This should be interesting.Read more >
Ah, I remember the past of my gameplay, riddled with cheats. But a few days ago, I created a vast dinosaur kingdom, no cheats at all. Yesterday I hatched a Spinosaurus and 4 Velociraptors. I can't wait to breed the 100% DNA Acrocanthosaurus this afternoon. Last quaerter, I received about 400000$ in profit. TheEddie750 (talk) 14:20, March 13, 2013 (UTC)Read more >

I know that Jurassic Time states that the hotel would be used for visiting scientists, politicians and businessmen. But why was he building it? In TLW (Novel), Isla Sorna is the "Dark-side of his park". So why, I wonder, did he want to build a resort and make the island quite famous? Even to the point of hosting an "InGen reception"?Read more >
So I've made a list of the park's staff from the novel, and there is a minimum of approx. 20 personnel on the island according to Ed Regis.
1: Chief Engineer- John Arnold
2: Control Room Attendent (Employee whos ear is found by Lex)- Unknown
3: Park Warden- Robert Muldoon
4: Guard (1st Floor Lobby)- Jimmy

If you were to create your own Chaos Effect mutant dinosaur(s), which dinosaur(s) would you use, how would it appear, and what is its function?Read more >
This is mainly out of my own curiosity really. So I've read the novel quite a few times, and I can't seem to find everyone who dies in the near-end.
In the later chapters in the novel, it states that of 24 people on the island (Approx. 20 Personel) 8 were known to be dead and another 6 missing. I know 7 of the 8 dead, but who is the last?
1- Ed Regis
2- Denis Nedry
3- John Arnold
4- Henry Wu
5- Guard (Lobby)
6- Guard (Second Floor)
7- Control Room Attendent (whos ear is found on the floor)
And it can't be Hammond, because at this point in the novel, Hammond is still alive, so it couldn't have been him. Any ideas?Read more >
Ever since I've first played the game Jurassic Park: Trespasser, I've always dipicted it as the film's canon. I know that some dates don't seem to be accurate to the film's universe, but I've found somewhat of a loop-hole.
Reason 1: Dates aren't stated directly in the first film- In the first film, it is never specifically stated by any of the characters that the events took place on June 11, 1993. Yes, some of the backround photos in the VIP Dining room appear with 1993 on them, but that isn't specific enough for me personally.
Reason 2: John Hammond's "Four years"- In TLW: JP, Hammond does however, state that four years prior to 1997 InGen lost Site B. Now, I do have a theory that the "InGen Incident" occured on August 27th, 1989 like in th…Read more >

I think our Jurassic Park Legacy needs inprovement. One thing I would like to add is criticism.
I've never been that into JPLegacy. After their guru Terry started to insult me when I dared to question their timeline I hardly visited that site. Terry insults all Park Pedia members he encounters (see Thread:12762).
However, I know that JPLegacy pissed off very influential fans.
I heard that the founders of TresCom started their site after they were banned from JPLegacy. On facebook I read that NewOldMate, who is creating this awesome Trespasser mod for the CryEngine, was also banned from JPLegacy.
I've also understood that within JPLegacy there was an incident resulting in the departure of BrachioInGen.
Can someone give me more details about this?… Read more >

Yes, after almost 12 years, we finally get a piece of news detailing the release date of the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park franchise. Apparently, the film is set to be released on June 13th, 2014, a little over a year after the first film's 20th anniversary. Ultimately, Steven Spielberg will not be returning as a director and will, as stated before, will still be a producer. But this means a potential resurrection to one of the greatest films of all time.
What do you think the movie will be about?
Who do you think should direct it?
