Will Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World feature Pterodactyl riders?

Jun. 10, 2014by: Sean Wist

Any rumor in general should be taken with a grain of salt, but that goes doubly so for JURASSIC WORLD. Colin Trevorrow is imagining an Isla Nublar that actually succeeds in what John Hammond was initially trying to accomplish, and when you throw genetic mutations into the mix, it all sounds very plausible. While we still don't have any clue what the infamous D-Rex will look like, we may be seeing some more in the way of dino-tainment with tourists riding pterodactyls.

Here are the original tweets of a poster on the Jurassic Park Legacy forums:

It sounds crazy enough to actually work, but on the other hand, it could be someone just blowin' smoke. I kinda dig the idea, although having been one of the few adults WITHOUT a kid to ride Universal Orlando's Pteranodon Flyers, perhaps that's personal bias talking. Regardless, I've read enough from Mr Trevorrow that I completely trust in the product he's going to deliver. He sounds like he has all the confidence in the world with this project, and his head and heart are in the right place. Despite two sub-par sequels, JURASSIC WORLD is easily one of my most anticipated films for next year.

JURASSIC WORLD opens on June 12, 2015.

They should put laser canons and rocket launchers onto the dinosaours. That would be great!

Please... NO.

*Sigh* I'm not jumping on the "THIS IS GONNA SUCK" bandwagon yet... but this really sounds awful. I will reserve judgement until I see it, but I really hope this is a load of crap. I kept reading expecting to see "haha jk this is the Joblo April Fool's Day article!" but unfortunately it's June 10th...

I remember when a girl doing gymnastics on a velociraptor was bullshit now we have magnified the bullshit x10 with riding pteranodons. What's next? T-rex's speaking sign language?

As long as there aren't dinosaur/human halfbreeds like in that old JP4 script things should work out okay...

Everything about this movie sounds absolutely batshit insane. It's either really going to work or it's going to be a complete disaster.

Pterodactyl?

... you guys know pterodactyls are way too small for someone to ride them, right? By the way that pic you posted is from a PTERANODON ;)

If you want to get picky, then the Velociraptors in every Jurassic Park movie weren't actually "Velociraptors." The real ones were the size of chickens. And, Velociraptors (or Deinonychus, as they more closely resembled) probably never would've been able to open doors. And, every dinosaur most likely had feathers. And Dilophosaurus probably never were able to spit venom. Oh, and it's probably impossible to genetically replicate dinosaurs from DNA found in amber. Point is, if you're looking for

If you REALLY want to get pick, the raptors in Jurassic Park were based off of Velociraptor Antirrhopus. Velociraptor Antirrhopus was later called Deinonychus, years after The Lost World was released.

There is no such creature as a pterodactyl. The flying reptile, should be referred to as a Pterodactylus or Pteranodon. They were not dinosaurs.

No way. Everything about this film sounds so fucking stupid it's unbelievable. Jurassic Park was grounded in a very believable reality. Now we are getting Dino-Riders, genetically engineered make-em-up chimeras, and trained "good guy" dinosaurs. It's like they just said "fuck it". This feels more like Gremlins 2 minus the comedy.

Sounds awesome. I'm just glad we get to see more Pterodactyls in this film, which is something I wanted to see more in the original trilogy (or at least in the third film).

But everything about this film sounds great so far.

First off: everything involving the Pteranodons in Jurassic Park III was pretty awesome. The idea of the dinosaurs being tamed to a degree kind of reminds me of James Gurney's spectacular Dinotopia book series (which was loosely adapted into a Hallmark Channel series). I think it's a difficult balance to maintain between it being somewhat plausible and it being like Dino Riders, but I think events like the tragic incidents at various Sea World parks involving killer whales do serve as a

A fully operational Jurassic Park would be great to see, because it would have even more of an impact when it all goes wrong.

Man, that miniseries on television was God-awful! I remember being so amped for that as a kid, to the extent that I recorded it on a VHS so I'd have it forever...and it was just so terrible. I vaguely remember "Skybax" riders, some weird love triangle between the chick and the two brothers, and a bunch of T-rex's that they never actually called "T-rex" haha. I seriously hope the book series was better!
