Rumor: Is this our first look at a raptor from Jurassic World?

Jul. 7, 2014by: Alex Maidy

A new image has surfaced online that may or may not give us our first look at one of the raptors in JURASSIC WORLD. Keep in mind that with three films already released, it sometimes can be confusing when we are getting new reveals or edited images from prior films or games in the franchise. If this does turn out to be the real deal, fans should be pretty happy campers.

Colin Trevorrow's sequel to the Steven Spielberg produced trilogy has already revealed looks at Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard along with promises of new species of dinosaurs that will wreak havoc on screens next summer. The fan favorite raptors are said to be getting a genetic boost that should make them all the more terrifying than in the original films. This new image purports to show the raptors in what appears to be some sort of muzzle. It was posted on Instagram along with the following comment.

This is an actual Velociraptor for the upcoming film Jurassic World! #jurassicworld #dinosaur #universalstudios #StevenSpielberg #Velociraptor #HYPE

The upload was sent from Valencia, California, home to Legacy Effects who are working on JURASSIC WORLD. While Colin Trevorrow has validated rumors in the past about JURASSIC WORLD, we have yet to hear confirmation on this latest reveal.

If this does turn out to be the real deal, it would confirm the use of practical effects for the dinosaurs, something that made JURASSIC PARK feel more realistic than simply featuring CGI beasts. It also looks like Trevorrow is going to be honoring the legacy of the franchise rather than trying to make something less than spectacular.

JURASSIC WORLD is slated to hit theaters on June 12, 2015.

The classic raptor is BACK!!!!

Thank god, the classic looking raptor is back! (exit the raptors from Jurassic Park III)
I was a bit nervous when scientists announced that dinosaurs probably had feathers. I immediately thought Jurassic World would follow this finding. It may not be accurate, but in my mind the look of the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park and The Lost World is what I always pictured them looking like.

So awesome. God I really hope this is real. CGI sucks huge monkeys swinging on trees balls. Practical effects FTW!

HOLY ANIMATRONICS!

This is absolutely awesome and so refreshing to hardcore fans of the franchise (aka the first film). I know it's early and I don't wanna get my hopes up as I've been burned by 4th entries before but everything I've seen so far from this is spot on. I truly believe Trevorrow's undying passion for the original is what will ultimately keep this project in tune with that glorious magic from the first film.

Looks good, but Stan Winston Studios wouldn't be on this?

I don't believe Stan Winston Studios does movies anymore, but Legacy Effects is made up of Stan's core team.

What happened to the feathers?

This has to be from either one of the first 2 films or the theme park rides. Didn't the raptors in the 3rd film have feather? Wouldn't they just continue with that moving forward?

They're genetically engineered, so they could make them look however they want to. They had feathers in part 3 because they had bred in the wild. Personally, I don't really think it matters. Now, if you really want to get technical, raptors were only about 3 feet tall and covered with a lot more feathers then they had in part 3.

Colin Trevorrow tweeted awhile back that they would have no feathers in this one. I know it's not scientifically accurate, but neither was the Dilophosaurus. Frankly, anything to distance this one from JP3 is okay with me.

Basically what Krypto Cookies said.

The best part about these movies is that they're not fictionally accurate dinosaurs, they're genetically engineered "theme park monsters" as Alan Grant put it so nicely. They're hybrid creations with amphibian DNA rather than 100% authentic replications of the animals that used to roam this planet.. so technically they can use any excuse they want as to how they're tweaked.

Looks great!

I know some folks will get hung up on how scientifically inaccurate these dinosaurs are without the feathers and all that...but I look at it as keeping the consistency between movies. And it actually functions as a theme in these movies as well. These aren't supposed to be accurate recreations of real-life dinos. As Grant said in the terrible Jurassic Park III, "These are theme park monsters." In the book, they explain that they purposely made the dinosaurs look exactly how the public would

So it's easily explainable that the park figured people wouldn't take feathered dinos seriously, hence no feathers.

Looks legit to me, the first two films had brown raptors, the third had that blueish color with the 'feathers' on their head, none have been green if I'm remembering correctly.

Awesome

This movie is growing on me day by day. June 2015 can't come soon enough. Really liking the use of practical effects, and not over done Cgi.
