Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

It is fascinating to see how CGI is brought to life these days and a new featurette which will be included on the Blu-ray release of ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘ is showing how the Indoraptor was brought to life. One of the most fearsome creations in the ‘Jurassic Park’ franchise to date, there was a lot of effort put in by the VFX team, and this clip shows it! This isn’t the full featurette as you’ll need to buy the Blu-ray to check it out, but the clip gives enough of an idea of all the hard work that goes into creating these dinosaurs. Also, for those who love to see these extra features, it will likely leave you hungry for more!

What is interesting though is that when creating the Indoraptor it wasn’t dinosaurs that the director wanted to focus on when sharing how it could bring a thrill to the audience but a completely different classic monster as VFX producer Dan Barrow shares that:

“J.A. [Bayona] started to bring references from Nosferatu. Very specifically the front teeth and the long claws are definitely referencing the Nosferatu character”

You can see the clip for yourself right here prior to the upcoming Blu-ray release!

Barrow also shared how much he and the rest of the team loved being able to create a dinosaur from scratch as was done in ‘Jurassic World’ as:

“The Indoraptor obviously, [we’re] taking elements from dinosaurs we know were real such as velociraptors and dinosaurs that were already genetic such as the Indominus Rex from the last film. And inventing a new dinosaur from scratch was incredibly exciting.”

Outside of the full Making Of feature, the following are also included on the Blu-ray release:

  • The KINGDOM Evolves – Filmmakers discuss how the second chapter in the Jurassic World trilogy pushes the franchise in a new direction.
  • Return to Hawaii – Cast and crew discuss shooting the film in Hawaii.
  • Island Action – A behind-the-scenes look at the bunker scene and runaway gyrosphere sequence.
  • Aboard the Arcadia – Cast, and crew discuss working with the animatronic dinosaurs.
  • Start the Bidding! – A behind-the-scenes look at the auction scene.

Well worth it for those who can’t get enough of how their favorite films are made!
