An all-new original short film ‘The Hatchling‘ featuring plenty of dinosaurs has roared online! While it is not an official entry into the Jurassic World universe or a production by Universal Pictures, it is sure to be right up your alley. Drawing clear inspiration from Amblin classics such as ‘The Goonies’ and ‘ET,’ this short film transports viewers to a world reminiscent of Jurassic Park (and dare we say, a more grounded Camp Cretaceous), complete with numerous easter eggs for all the dedicated fans like ourselves.
The production comes from quite a few members of the Jurassic Park community (with full transparency: Chris Pugh, from our own website, is among them). Although it doesn’t formally position itself as a fan film, ‘The Hatchling’ offers a surprisingly high-quality experience despite its modest scale.
So what are you waiting for, watch ‘The Hatchling’ below (after all, it’s only 10 minutes long)!
So what did you think? Be sure to let us know, and if you have a project you want featured here sound off. We hope to see more projects from all the independent filmmakers and storytellers out there tackle dinosaurs in the future!
