Version Numbers Exist in the Film Universe ? An Editorial

Jurassic Park IV Gets a New Writing Team

Date: Thursday, June 21, 2012 - 2:33 (Eastern)
Author: Veritas

Deadline has the latest Jurassic Park IV news coming our way. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver who penned the hit Rise of the Planet of the Apes have been called in to write for us a JP IV. Can they work their magic again, this time with our beloved franchise?





Jurassic Park: The 19th Anniversary

Date: Monday, June 11, 2012 - 19:52 (Eastern)
Author: Tyrannosaur

Nineteen years ago we saw this tagline: “An Adventure 65 Million Years In The Making”

June 1993, the summer that spurred a legendary book into a legendary film. Spielberg, knowing that the novel would be a hit, was sold the rights to make a film before the book was even published. That summer, Jurassic Park woud gross $914 million worldwide, and would forever be remembered for the magical film that it is. It is because of the Jurassic Park franchise, that we are here today. Jurassic Park Legacy would like to commemorate this day, June 11th, in remembrance of the film that has brought us all together by sharing some of the less common imagery that has been come across over the years.

A group photo taken of the cast and crew that worked so tirelessly for four years to bring us the film we have today. Taken at the massive Studio 12 where the Main Road Attack scene was filmed, with Stan Winston’s massive 40ft T.rex animatronic in the back.

This scene was one of the most arduous to create for Steven Spielberg. The Tyrannosaurus animatronic was built with a very specific weight in mind. However, the skin was made of foam latex which acts like a sponge to liquid. This presented a major problem for the crew. After a while, the foam latex skin would become saturated with so much water that the additional weight of the water caused the robotics beneath to shake violently, forcing filming to be halted until the skin could be drained.

Although the quality is far from perfect, this image represents one of the concept colorations for the Tyrannosaurus in the first Jurassic Park. This piece is of particular interest due to the coloration that is of strikingly similarity to that of the coloration use for the T.rex in the movie.

Two behind-the-scenes captures of the now late Bob Peck’s character, Park Warden Robert Muldoon’s, last stand as he is attacked by a Velociraptor. It is here that Robert Muldoon utters his famous line turned internet meme, “clever girl…” as he realizes that he has fallen prey to a trap set up very much in the same pattern as that described by paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant at the beginning of the film after a volunteering child scoffs at it’s supposed bird-like attributes, describing it as a “six foot turkey”.


A shot of Laura Dern’s stunt double for the film, Patricia Tallman, as she takes a break in front of the main gate that visitors to Jurassic Park would enter through upon their start of the tour. That is, if the Park systems were to never have been sabotaged, allowing the dinosaurs to wreak havoc on the island. The gate was built on a Waikoko Forest Management Road in Kauai, however time took it’s toll to the structure and currently all that remains of the pillars are two wooden poles where each pillar once stood.


This is a print out of the cover of the book that Tim Murphy totes around Isla Nublar. Labeled “Dinosaur Detectives” and written by Alan Grant and Michael Backes, the book is a bestseller and Martin Kline of Columbia University states, “Whether you like dinosaurs or not, this book will open your eyes to the truly fascinating world of paleontology. A refreshingly bright and interesting overview of these so-called dinosaur detectives… Loads of good stuff!” Published by Perneum Press of Quinn and Ryan Publishers, the book has a foreword by Sir Richard Attenborough. According to Dr. Ellie Sattler, the book is fully illustrated.

This last piece is for a bit of interesting, and somewhat humorous, observation. Park technician John Raymond Arnold does not appear fond of the pink polos worn by other Jurassic Park employees, however he does seem fond of their pink socks. If you ever wished to see Samuel L. Jackson in pink socks, here’s your chance.

We have a special announcement! A New Fan Fiction!

BioSyn is an upcoming fan fiction written by Robert “evolution_rex” Hall and Mathieu “Sickle_Claw” Munoz. What makes this fan fiction so unique? The point of this fan fiction starts with one big question: What other kinds of things go on in the Jurassic Park Universe? It’s always been clear the technology seen in the films are far beyond that of our own. Genetically resurrecting dinosaurs was implied to be advanced science in the film, but it’s clear that there is so much more that wasn’t even considered unusual. So, we thought of how we could include some of the other possible technology never seen in the films. First thing came to mind was a Jurassic Park spin-off.

That’s right, a spin-off. BioSyn will not be your average fan fiction. It won’t involve InGen, Isla Sorna, Isla Nublar, or even dinosaurs. This will be something completely new. What exactly will it be about? Well, that’s the fun part. You’re going to have to wait and see.

BioSyn: Coming soon to a JPL near you.





Jurassic-Con Reminder; TLW Game Petition!

Date: Saturday, June 9, 2012 - 11:18 (Eastern)
Author: Tyrannosaur

Jurassic-Con, which is being held June 9th in beautiful Southern California! This is the Con's first year running and they've promised some awesome exhibits. They're going to have everything from fossils to real paleontologists. Some of the highlights of the show will be Jurassic Park, Land Before Time, and even Indiana Jones!

Some of the special guests will include Eric Boardman from Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs, Dinosaurs! Most you should know that was hosted with Gary Owens and Eric Boardman as a team in the eighties and early nineties. In case you need a refresher here is a trailer of the series.



The convention will also feature The Chiodo Brothers. They will be featured guests along with their creations from the movie Killer Klowns From Outer Space (a staff favorite here on JPL). Jurassic-Con is the event if you're a JP fan that you do not want to miss! Check out Jurassic-Con's main site and their Facebook page! As a bonus I'm going to show the teaser for the convention here. It's hilarious and everyone in the world has the right to enjoy this trailer!



Keep in mind guys, Jurassic Con is a FREE, 1-Day event being held at: 19643 San Jose Ave, Industry, CA 91748. It's today only, Saturday June 9th, from 9am to 5am! Try to make it there if you're in the California area!

JPLegacy has been busy as of late backing a petition to TellTale games to release another Jurassic Park game to serve as a similar tie-in as to how Jurassic Park: The Game was to Jurassic Park, but this time for The Lost World: Jurassic Park. We're hoping TellTale will give us a good story between The Lost World: Jurassic Park and the events in Jurassic Park 3 in some way that helps tie the two films together more. Maybe the game could allow us another look at Isla Sorna and maybe even the other Five Deaths. Be sure to check out the petition here and sign today, we need as many real signatures as possible! Information on the petition as well as hope for what we'd like to see and a discussion on it can be found on our board and the website for the campaign can be located here.





Jurassic Park Toys in Toy Review Magazine

Date: Friday, June 8, 2012 - 10:58 (Eastern)
Author: Veritas

In last month's issue (#219) and this month's issue(#220) of Toy Review magazine, Lenney Lee collected information and images of all of the Jurassic Park toys released (and UNreleased) thus far and put them into a two part segment of Lee's Toy Review in the magazines. Issue 219 contains part one, covering all of the figures released with the films and issue 220 has all of the JP toy lines that were not connected to the films.
Although some of the information in the magazines about the creation of these lines isn't compleate (i.e like the Chaos Effect line was actually intended to go with a cartoon series, but in the magazine they state it was just a stand alone series not tied anything) it's a nice little summary of the past of Jurassic Park toys. In the collection of pictures they even have some unreleased figures photos. Although not every figure released has a picture in this guide, these issues are still a nice grab at you local bookstore or online.
