- "Aw, man, we're done for. We're gonna get eaten!"
Ellis entered the paddock along with his supervisor, Nick, and Owen Grady in an effort to determine how Indominus rex escaped. When Vivian Krill warned them over the radio that Indominus hadn't actually left the paddock, Ellis joined Owen in attempting to run for the main entrance. Nick saw Indominus through the trees in that direction and ran the other way, but Ellis and Owen didn't and kept unknowingly running straight towards danger.
Only when Indominus stepped into view between them and the front door did the two realize their error. They turned and started running for the back door (where Nick went). Ellis was snatched up in predator's enormous hands.
Listening in from the control room, a horrified Vivian, Lowery Cruthers and Simon Masrani listened to Ellis' screams and the sounds of him being eaten. Nick then witnesses the I. rex tearing his leg from his body and then eating his remains. 
Ellis first appears in the game as a playable character in the level "Welcome to Jurassic World". When he, Owen and Nick are told that Indominus rex is still in the paddock, he becomes nervous and says he bets they're going to be eaten. Attempting to reassure him, Owen says, "I'll take that bet!" When Indominus attacks the three, she lunges at Ellis who ends up perched on her snout. Despite not getting eaten, he yells at Owen, "You owe me five bucks!" and then Indominus flings him away over the paddock wall.
As a playable character, he can use his electric prod to power generators.
Behind the scenesEdit
- Ellis' name comes from LEGO Jurassic World. He isn't identified in either the film's dialogue or credits (his actor Eddie J. Fernandez went uncredited), and the junior novelization simply refers to him as an anonymous worker.
- In the junior novelization he is swallowed whole rather than crunched and eaten in multiple bites.
