New ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ Featurette Presents The Legacy of Jurassic Park!

Life breaks free.

Jurassic World: Dominion – The Legacy Featurette has been released by Universal Pictures! This brand new video contains interviews with the returning Jurassic Park cast members, the core cast of Jurassic World, and even Colin Trevorrow, all sharing the impact that the Jurassic franchise has had on cinema as a whole and how it all continues in Jurassic World: Dominion. Watch the full featurette below!




“It expands to new territories, and crashes through barriers… painfully, maybe even dangerously…”

The featurette begins with Sam Neill (Dr. Alan Grant), Laura Dern (Dr. Ellie Sattler), and Jeff Goldblum (Dr. Ian Malcolm) sharing pieces of their experiences making Jurassic Park alongside incredible behind-the-scenes footage from the set of that film. Dern speaks of the “energy on set that it was the first time you’d ever seen anything like this,” and Goldblum speaks to how he was “excited for everything that it could be.” The legacy of these actors, their characters, and the incredible film that is Jurassic Park is clear here, and the featurette begins to demonstrate their connection to Jurassic World: Dominion as it transitions to the characters of the Jurassic World films.


“Well, there it is.”

Continuing with the core Jurassic World cast, Chris Pratt (Owen Grady) and Bryce Dallas Howard (Claire Dearing) share the impact that Jurassic Park and seeing real dinosaurs on-screen had on them as well as cinema as a whole. “Suddenly that which had never seemed real before was totally real, and I realized at that moment that cinema forever had changed,” Howard says. Director Colin Trevorrow joins to share that “Jurassic World: Dominion is the culmination of the franchise. It concludes the story that Steven Spielberg started telling in 1993.” Pratt and Howard go on to share how great and surreal it was to work with the legacy cast member of Jurassic Park, and Laura Dern shares that Dominion was a “fantastic idea to bring these two worlds together.” Trevorrow and Howard go on to explain that with all of the characters returning, it is truly the intersection and convergence of the entire storyline and franchise.


“Life, uh… finds a way.”

There are also some very interesting new visuals and moments of dialogue in this featurette. Dr. Henry Wu (BD Wong) appears briefly to say “We need to fix a terrible mistake,” which could have massive implications for the storyline and the Jurassic franchise. We see fiery, action-packed moments featuring the entire cast, as well as new shots of the legacy and modern casts mixing together in interesting ways: a tense moment between Owen Grady and Dr. Malcolm, and Maisie, Dr. Grant, and Dr. Sattler running in lab coats through what looks like Biosyn’s headquarters. The featurette culminates in wild shots of the chaos to come in Malta, Owen and Kayla meeting the Pyroraptor, and the entire cast facing off with the massive Giganotosaurus, seen for the first time in glorious, full animatronic form!




Needless to say, this new Jurassic World: Dominion featurette is fantastic, and showcases multiple new moments and pieces of information that demonstrate the deep connection this film will have to the original: Jurassic Park. It also showcases how definitive the franchise has been for generations of people, and how fortunate we are to be witnessing the continuation of incredible stories 30 years in the making. Be sure and take this featurette in, share your thoughts with us below, and join us in the exciting run up to the sixth Jurassic film, in theaters June 10th!

Interview with Funko Games and Prospero Hall – Inspirations Behind NEW Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar Game!

Earlier this month we were fortunate to be able to participate in a playthrough event at Funko Hollywood HQ with Funko Games and Prospero Hall for their new game: Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar!

During this event we had the immense privilege of interviewing two of the top minds behind the development of this brand new tabletop legacy game: Deirdre Cross, Vice President of Funko Games, and Ruby Wishnietsky, Editorial Lead for Prospero Hall. These two are big fans of the Jurassic franchise and have done an incredible job with this game. Read on to hear how they injected their passion for Jurassic and tabletop gaming into Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar!


From left to right: Jennifer Durst (Jurassic Jen), Brad Jost (The Jurassic Park Podcast), Deirdre Cross (Funko Games), Ruby Wishnietsky (Prospero Hall), Nima Neemz Nakhshab (JurassicYourWorld), and Caleb Burnett (Jurassic Outpost).


What is your relationship with Jurassic Park and Jurassic World, and how did that influence developing this game?

Ruby Wishnietsky:

“My relationship with Jurassic Park and Jurassic World was definitely deepened through the development of this game. I am a huge amusement park fan. So honestly, my clearest relationship to them is riding the ride in Florida – going through that wonderful boat ride and getting freaked out by dinosaurs.”

Deirdre Cross:

“My relationship with the Jurassic World franchise is, I would say, very deep and quite intimate. I reread the book every year and I don’t even know how many times I’ve seen the first film. But really, I celebrate the whole thing. I’m so into Jurassic World that I have two cats at my house – one of them is named Dr. Grant and the other one is named Dr. Malcolm. And they’ve both grown too big to fit in our game box.”


That is so awesome. So the word “legacy” – it feels like that’s important. How does the word legacy connect with the franchise, this game, and everything that’s going on with the new films?

Ruby:

“Well, the, the word ‘legacy’ in the title of the game, Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar, has a few different meanings. One of the meanings of course is that the whole story is John Hammond’s legacy, right? As it goes, you know, from the inception of the park, his dream of the park, and then carries on through the whole Jurassic story. The whole thing is his legacy.

The other meaning that it has is that legacy is a type of gameplay, which means that the game changes over time. As you make decisions, it changes permanently as you and your playgroup explore the stories and the adventure and build your own park. That’s really the meaning of legacy for us in this context.”

Deirdre:

“And as you may have noticed playing the game, and as you will continue to notice, it has even deeper meanings as you play through our particular game. Not just Hammond but other characters will leave their legacy on the island and on your part. And so you’ll see how that plays out as you continue your adventures.”


What themes from the Jurassic franchise, whether it’s the books or the films, were important to you to put into this game?

Ruby:

“I have a couple that relate to some specific aspects of the game that I love to talk about. One of the big themes that played a big role in our art direction is the early fear of how technology is going to affect the natural world. In the art direction of the game, we went very much from the perspective of what influenced the creators of the Jurassic stories: 1950s and ’60s pulp comics, monster movie posters, and even scientific textbooks. Thinking about how this exciting new technology field of genetics is going to change things for the better or for the worse – who knows?

One of the other themes that I think we play on a lot in the gameplay sense is the wonder at the unknown and learning with our new scientific knowledge – learning some aspects of what used to be and what was extinct, but not having the whole story.”

Deirdre:

“I mean, we’re filling in the gaps. You know, there’s still gaps in the code, the DNA. And we’re sort of guessing at what it was. And in the mechanical gameplay of our game, there are gaps there and the players can guess – maybe they’ll guess right and be a little more prepared, or maybe something’s going to go very differently than what they expected.

I also feel like a theme is ‘you can’t put it back in the box.’ Like, there are things you can’t undo.”


The artwork is gorgeous. Can you talk a little bit more about what it was like developing the artwork and all of the stickers and game pieces and everything?

Deirdre:

“Like Ruby was saying about where we went to look for our inspiration for the art style and everything – back to the fifties and sixties, pulp and scientific textbooks, scientific magazines. But beyond that we also had this great opportunity to do these sculpts in the game, the sculpted miniatures. And we worked very closely with Universal and Amblin to get their files for 3D dinosaurs and stuff. We’re getting all this amazing stuff and we start to realize, well, yeah, we can just make the dinosaurs.

A lot of games just have dinosaurs in them, but what if our game had a more immersive sculpture that tells a story on its own that is also a really beautiful storytelling piece? So when you look at our sculpted velociraptor game piece, it’s two raptors coming out of the door of the kitchen. It’s so cool.

It’s so great to get to really pour so much creativity into those tiny pieces that are on the table. And I think as you look at the whole product, from the stickers to the card art to even the liner of the box, everything is bespoke and original to the product.”


Last question: You said you read the books often. Was there anything from those that influenced this game at all?

Deirdre:

“I think, like what Ruby’s saying about the exploration of science and the tension of the unknown… If you’ve also read the books, you understand what Steven Spielberg was doing when he created the films, because that was his source material. The story he’s trying to tell, when you also read the books as more backstory, there’s a lot more in there about that tension. Though our game does not technically cover the books, you can definitely feel their DNA.”



We cannot thank Deirdre Cross, Vice President of Funko Games, and Ruby Wishnietsky, Editorial Lead for Prospero Hall, enough for taking the time to speak with us about their passions for Jurassic and this fantastic new game. It’s clear their love for all things Jurassic and board games has been woven into this product, and the beautiful result speaks for itself. Jurassic fans are going to love experiencing this game.

NEW Image and Info on DeWanda Wise’s Kayla Watts in ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ via Empire Magazine!

Jurassic World: Dominion hits theaters in just under three months, and more news & visual teases are arriving every day. A new image and information about DeWanda Wise’s new-to-the-franchise character Kayla Watts has arrived via Empire Magazine, and she is looking to steal the show. Read Empire‘s full article complete with the new image below:


In the new image, Kayla seems to be in a somewhat shady setting resembling a makeshift lab or warehouse. While this location could be anywhere, it’s possible she is joining Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) in Malta based on the colors in the architecture and the nature of the film’s story. Standing in front of a very interesting incubator that may house some dinosaur eggs, she is brandishing a large taser tool (presumably for wrangling dinosaurs) and wearing a very cool jacket with some sort of dragon logo adorning the shoulder. The taser tool looks to be the same one she is holding in the previously released image below:


Also in Empire Magazine’s article is some brand new info on Kayla Watts’ character:

“…Dominion will find Kayla getting up close and personal with prehistoric beasts like the Quetzalcoatlus and the Pyroraptor – and Wise found herself in a similar situation, stepping onto extensive sets and rubbing shoulders with the animatronic dinos that brought this Jurassic world to life. “There’s nothing like being dropped into a space to go, like, ‘Got it. I know how to walk now’,” she tells Empire of her experiences on the epic Pinewood soundstages. “This is Kayla’s world. She’s fresh out of the Air Force and her main thing is flying cargo: mostly dinosaur stuff, but it could be anything.’”



Wise went on to detail her encounters with some of the creatures of Dominion, saying:

“If you are even a little bit of an animal lover, even a smidge, it’s just remarkable. I was shown the Lystrosaurus early and named him Leonard,” she says. “I would like to take him home. It’s honestly wildly overwhelming, how much affection you can feel for this thing that you know logically is not real.”


It is very cool to learn this new bit of background on Kayla Watts and hear about DeWanda Wise’s personal encounters with Dominion‘s new creatures! You can read Empire’s full article here. Their full Jurassic World: Dominion story, which is set to include a brand new image of the Pyroraptor and other new Dominion information, will be on shelves and online Thursday, March 17th. Dominion hits theaters June 10th!

Jurassic World: The Legacy Of Isla Nublar Playthrough Event and First Impressions!


“Welcome… to Jurassic Park.”

This weekend we were fortunate to be invited to Funko’s Hollywood HQ and store for a special event centered around the upcoming legacy game from Prospero Hall and Funko Games: Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar. During the event we got to spend time with other great Jurassic folks as well as the people responsible for developing this new game. Read on for our first impressions and exclusive photos of our playthrough!

From left to right: Jennifer Durst (Jurassic Jen), Nima Neemz Nakhshab (JurassicYourWorld), Caleb Burnett (Jurassic Outpost), and Brad Jost (The Jurassic Park Podcast) posing in the immersive Jurassic Park section of the Funko Hollywood HQ and store.


“A gripping journey of ambition and adventure.”

Our first impression of Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar is that it is visually gorgeous from start to finish. The art of the box, instruction materials, gameplay pieces, and more were all inspired by science fiction art, comic books, and B-monster movies of the 1950s. This game is an absolutely massive, intricate story that gives players the chance to experience what it would be like to build John Hammond’s dream from the ground up. Up to four players collaboratively work to set up the Isla Nublar we all know and love, building everything from the Visitor Center to the genetics lab to dinosaur paddocks. View exclusive images of our first playthrough and the special edition “chase” game box cover in the gallery below:


“Welcome to Isla Nublar.”

That phrase is what players are greeted with upon their entry into Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar. The game’s title communicates important aspects of what’s in store for its players: A ‘legacy’ board game requires that many decisions you make with your characters and in placing things on the island can be quite permanent. After choosing from a few classic Jurassic characters and a new one or two (with more to be unlocked as you play), the adventures of the game begin. Including the tutorial, the game contains twelve story based adventures with five “rounds” in each. Players must work together to learn how to build their own Jurassic Park while completing objectives, solving puzzles, and running away from newly created dinosaurs. Players are aided by their characters’ unique special abilities, and once you get the hang of it, this game is an absolute Jurassic blast.


“Creation is an act of sheer will.”

Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar is a wonderful expedition into what it would be like for players to leave their own Jurassic legacy on the island of Isla Nublar. We were only able to get through a couple of the adventures in our allotted time, but there was already so much to love about this beautifully complex game and the immense amount of interwoven Jurassic franchise lore. Funko Games and Prospero Hall consulted with Industrial Light & Magic, Amblin, and Universal Pictures to create the stunning artwork, instruction booklets and stickers, sculpted game pieces, and game boxes that will keep Jurassic fans and players engaged in the awesome experience they’ve crafted.


“Next time it’ll be flawless…”

We cannot thank the folks at Funko, Funko Games, and Prospero Hall enough for the invitation to this playthrough event and for the experience of the amazing game they’ve put together. During the event we also had the opportunity to speak with the developers and the leading folks at Funko Games about their philosophy and experience when developing this game – be on the lookout for those interviews very soon!

Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar is headed to Kickstarter on March 22, 2022, and supporting upon launch reserves your copy of the game. Retail pickups for the game are expected to be announced in the near future. Are you excited for Jurassic World: The Legacy of Isla Nublar?

US Snowboarder Shaun White Encounters an Apatosaurus in Third ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ NBC Olympics Ad!


The third television spot of the ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ x NBC Winter Olympics crossover ad campaign has been released – this time starring US Olympic Snowboarder Shaun White! The first ad featured Olympic Alpine Ski Racer Mikaela Shiffrin, and the second featured US Olympic Figure Skater Nathan Chen. Watch the third ad below:

The ad showcases White training for the half-pipe event on a snowy mountain range – similar to the first two spots. Jurassic inspired music returns as he begins his descent. At the peak of his first jump, White is suddenly eye to eye with an apatosaurus towering above the trees. He stops on the edge of the half-pipe, and the apatosaur brings its neck down to his level. Its breath fogs his goggles, prompting him to remove them and stand in awe of the massive creature. The ad once again ends with a promo card for the Winter Olympics beginning February 3rd on NBC and ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ in theaters June 10th.



The third entry in the ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ x NBC Winter Olympics crossover ad campaign boasts epic visuals and music, countered by a majestic close encounter between Shaun White and a massive apatosaur. These ads have provided a fun beginning to the upcoming film’s advertising. It seems one more possible date to watch for this crossover is February 4th at the Opening Ceremonies of the 2022 Winter Olympics on NBC. Stay tuned Jurassic fans; the ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ marketing has only just begun.

The first ad featured Olympic Alpine Ski Racer Mikaela Shiffrin, and the third ad will feature US Olympic Snowboarder Shaun White. Watch the newest ad below:

The ad begins as Chen trains for the upcoming Winter Olympics on a frozen lake, high in a snow-covered mountain range. A herd of parasaurolophus stampede through a ravine towards him as Jurassic inspired music begins. It crescendos as the group stops along the bank of the frozen lake, creating a moment of awe before the magnificent creatures. The leader of the herd and Chen lock eyes for a moment before the group bolts away into the snowy distance. The ad ends with a promo card for the Winter Olympics beginning February 3rd on NBC and ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ in theaters June 10th.



This second entry in the ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ x NBC Winter Olympics crossover ad campaign really ups the concept of the first a bit and brings in some beautiful music and dinosaurs to boot.

‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ Marketing Campaign to begin with Winter Olympics tie-in on the TODAY Show!

NBCUniversal has just announced via press release their marketing plans for the upcoming Winter Olympics and Super Bowl XLVI, and within those plans is some big Jurassic World: Dominion news!

From the initial press preview:


“NBCU will involve all of its platforms for both the Olympics and Super Bowl build-up, including with Universal Studios a Jurassic World x Olympics promo launch on Jan. 21, five cross-company roadblocks, SUV and Chrisley Knows Best custom promotions and $40 million in local and affiliate support.”


Speaking further in the press release, representatives from NBCU shared:


“And if that wasn’t big enough, we’re going colossal and partnering with Universal Films to leverage our blockbuster movie franchise Jurassic World.  These Olympians are about to face a challenge they never saw coming in a world they never imagined, more details are coming this Friday on the TODAY show.”


This is exciting news as it seems the marketing campaign for Jurassic World: Dominion is hatching tomorrow! To set expectations: this is not the trailer, but the beginning of a marketing campaign that could culminate with it. In a recent media event, NBCUniversal promised an even larger pay off for the Dominion marketing during the Super Bowl on February 13th:


“We will capitalize on the Halley’s Comet (visible from the Earth only once every 75 years) of media moments, because there is simply nothing bigger than having the two biggest media events together at NBC Sports: the Super Bowl and the Olympics on the same day and on the same network,” Jenny Storms, CMO, entertainment and sports, NBCUniversal, said during the presentation.”
