Actor Chris Pratt has now officially spoken out about his involvement with Jurassic World in an interview with QMI Agency. He doesn’t say a whole lot about it, just that he’s thrilled to be apart of it.
“For me, Jurassic Park was really kind of my Star Wars,” Pratt told QMI Agency Sunday at Legoland California, where he and fellow Lego Movie castmembers were promoting the animated comedy.
“I lined up at the theatre to see it, I saw it opening night, I saw every sequel, I’ve seen it a whole bunch of times… for me that was my big movie, I think I was 13 or 14 when it came out,” Pratt said.
“And so it’s a big deal for me to be any part of that, let alone this part I’m going to be playing. I’m thrilled about it.”
“Everybody around the world knows that franchise,” said Pratt. “When you say Jurassic Park, no one is like, ‘What’s Jurassic Park?’ More people know Jurassic Park than just about anything. I’m thrilled.”
Chris Pratt was rumoured to be involved for months before he was officially confirmed for a role in Jurassic World a few weeks ago.
