21 Years in the Making

(Jurassic World: IGN Online)

(“Jurassic World” by Mark Englert: IGN Online)

Ladies and gentlemen, not only is Jurassic World really happening, but it will once again feature the superstar of dinosaurs in the Velociraptor. Above is the first promotional poster for the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park franchise. Recalling when I saw the first movie 21 years ago, it’s surreal to think it’s a franchise. What’s more is that it seems like this is the right time to make a new film with great actors (Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard) and written with what appears to be a similar tone as the original from 1993. Enough time has passed that this new movie is not simply a sequel, but a story with a purpose and gravitas to stand on its own.

The saying is, “a picture is worth a thousand words.”

I agree.

The excitement that’s included in these thousand words is unsustainable…much like the the expectations of controlling dinosaurs in the modern world.

While we will have to wait and see how this story unfolds in 2015, Spielberg and Co. just may have found a way to rejuvenate this story for the 21st century!
