‘Jurassic World’: Set Photo And New Dinosaur Revealed

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow tweeted a new photo from the production, potentially revealing a major plot point as new details of the prehistoric thriller are coming to light.

While Trevorrow has been teasing Jurassic Park fans with plot hints since filming on the franchise’s fourth installment began in April, his latest tweet may reveal a major tie between Jurassic World and earlier films in the series.

As Mashable notes, the image is a clear reference to a scene in the first Jurassic Park film, when Dennis Nedry, played by Wayne Knight, attempted to reach the Island’s East Dock in order to smuggle dinosaur embryos to the mainland. The sign in the photo may be the same one which Knight’s character struck with a jeep during his ultimately fatal attempt, leading some fans to speculate that the embryos he carried may play a role in Jurassic World.

In August, Trevorrow also tweeted a set picture that revealed a statue of Richard Attenborough as John Hammond, the founder of Jurassic Park, leading fans to speculate that he will be looked at as a Walt Disney-like figure in Jurassic World.

As The Inquisitr previously noted, a new species of dinosaur will be introduced in Jurassic World, genetically engineered to be a unique addition, not found in the fossil record. While Trevorrow previously spoke about the new dinosaur in an interview with Slashfilm, Moviepilot has identified the creature as Diabolus, or D. Rex.

“This savage, unnatural creature combines the genes of a cuttlefish, a snake, a velociraptor and a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Naturally, it is not the calmest of animals. And it is expected that it is the introduction of the Diabolus Rex to Jurassic World that will cause the catastrophic events of the movie to take place.”

Diabolus is thought to be the main antagonist of Jurassic World, an attempt at raising flagging attendance at the park. Star Chris Pratt, it has also been revealed, will play a character who is tasked with behavioral research on Velociraptors, another dinosaur from previous Jurassic Park films that will make an appearance.

Jurassic World opens in theaters on June 12, 2015.
