Director Colin Trevorrow has done a lengthy interview about Jurassic World over on SlashFilm. He talks about the original script and how much input Steven Spielberg had in it. The big tidbit is that the T-Rex we saw in the recent trailer is the exact same one from the original Jurassic Park movie. Trevorrow also discusses the animatronics, CGI and motion capture.
Question: I expected maybe there’s a cameo–like, a human cameo of some kind. But, you mentioned earlier that there’s a dinosaur that we have seen in the previous films that we’re going to get to see. Can you talk a little bit about that?
Colin Trevorrow: The T-Rex that’s in the film is the T-Rex from the original Jurassic Park and she is 22 years older. But, she’s not limping around.
Question: Does she still have a taste for raptors?
Colin Trevorrow: We’ll see. We will see.
Question: Will audiences immediately recognize that it’s the same–?
Colin Trevorrow: –I hope so. Yeah. I mean, we took the original design and obviously, technology has changed. So, it’s going to move a little bit differently, but it’ll move differently because it’s older. And we’re giving her some scars and we’re tightening her skin. So, she has that feeling of, like, an older Burt Lancaster. And this movie is herUnforgiven.
