13 Cool Details That "Jurassic Park" Lovers Missed In The Latest "Jurassic World" Kingdom

The references to the 1993 original are wiiiiild.

1. The jeep in the background during Owen Grady's reunion with Blue is just like Jurassic Park's original jeep models.

It looks just like the one that the T. Rex gulped down.

2. The scene where we see the Indoraptor opening the door was a reference to raptors' intelligence.

If you remember the first 1993 movie well, there's a whole scene where they talk about how the raptors are so smart that they can learn to open doors.

3. The Indoraptor also specifically references other raptor-like behavior, like when we see it tapping its claws as an intimidation tactic.

You've also seen this happen with raptors in previous movies.

4. The brachiosauruses are, again, the first thing everyone sees when they arrive in the park.

In the original movie, they are also the first dinosaurs the protagonists see when they arrive.

5. And it's also the last dinosaur we see in the park before it's overrun by lava.

It's the end of an era!

6. The scene where Maisie runs to the elevator to hide is identical to the scene where Lex hides in the kitchen in Jurassic Park.

7. If you watch carefully, you'll see a rear view mirror in one of the scenes with the warning "objects in the mirror are closer than they appear" printed on it.

This is a reference to the first movie's iconic scene.

8. You've probably seen the movie promoted everywhere with the catchphrase "Life finds a way" — it's a reference to this line from the first movie:

They were spoken by Dr. Malcolm, AKA young Jeff Goldblum, of course.

9. Owen describing Blue as a "smart girl" is also a direct reference to the first movie, where that pet name is also given to one of the raptors.

10. The character Lockwood has a cane topped with a mosquito trapped in amber, just like the one John Hammond had in Jurassic Park.

It might even be Hammond's.

11. Dr. Malcolm's water glass holds a lot of symbolism, too.

It might seem like a trivial detail, but in the first movie, Dr. Malcolm uses a glass of water to describe chaos theory. In Fallen Kingdom, Malcolm has a glass of water close by when he testifies on the impact of humans on the world. Coincidence? I don't think so...

12. The T. Rex scene is a tribute to 1997's The Lost World, where we also saw how a captive dinosaur gets transported.

13. And yes, the stampede also borrows many elements from the first movie.

At one point, the protagonists hide behind a tree trunk to escape from the dinosaurs, just like in the first movie.

Now that you caught up on all these details, we think it's time for a Jurassic Park and Jurassic World double feature, don't you think??
