According to the online viral campaign for Masrani Global that accompanied Jurassic World’s release in 2015, John Parker Hammond passed away shortly after the events seen in The Lost World: Jurassic Park in 1997.
Despite that, the legend of the entrepreneur is still alive and well more than twenty years later. In a new featurette for next month’s ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’, we see Claire Dearing in Benjamin Lockwood’s manor standing in front of a large portrait of none other than John Parker Hammond, who’s bears a striking resemblance to when we last saw him in The Lost World – though perhaps a little healthier.
While little else can be gleaned from this appearance, it’s clear that Lockwood’s relationship with Hammond, and it’s deterioration before the events of Jurassic Park, will be an interesting look back into the mythos of the franchise.
Check out the featurette below:
Accompanying this featurette comes the Production Information for the movie which is now available to view online and you can find embedded below!
