Netflix has recently added the Jurassic Park trilogy in its library.
It’s been 18 years since the release of the last film of the franchise, yet many still revere the first movie as the series’ prime attraction. All the films (Jurassic Park-1993, Jurassic Park: The Lost World-1997, and Jurassic Park III-2001) managed to garner a loyal fanbase throughout their theatrical periods and after as well. And now that the streaming giant has included all the movies, the adoration for Steven Spielberg’s foundation seems to be getting much bigger.
However, there’s no sign of 2015’s Jurassic World or the recent Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. But some don’t seem to be bothering about it too much as looking at the original trilogy, there are too many standout moments to count for.
From raptors in the kitchen to tumbling trailers, giant bird cages to “You didn’t say the magic word”, the original franchise has it all.

Considering Netflix is known for bringing in some of the best classic movies out there, it’s rather confusing to think why Universal’s Jurassic Park trilogy wasn’t already in its choices.
This latest news comes after a rumor that Netflix is secretly working on a Jurassic project. According to fan site Jurassic Outpost, a potential Netflix listing insinuates something called Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. This somewhat of a subtle title was alongside the various Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies on the streaming service. Although the logo has faded as quickly as it appeared, it still relates to a Universal trademark for “Camp Cretaceous” that was registered in December 2018.

It’s worth noting that LEGO Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape is already on Netflix, meaning this could be just another LEGO flick for the long-running legacy of Jurassic Park.
With Universal’s Furious franchise already coming to Netflix in an animated version with DreamWorks, we can expect the same with Jurassic World. There could also be a tie-in adaptation of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard starrer Jurassic World 3 set to hit cinemas in 2021.

- People have questioned if dinosaur DNA could really be cloned. Theoretically, the answer is yes but we do not have have the technology to channel it, yet. Even if you took a petrified DNA it would still be too low in quality. And there is no counterpart to a dinosaur egg in which we can incubate the embryos. The paleontologist, Jack Horner, who was a consultant for the movie, said he thought it might be possible to genetically develop a chicken embryo to activate stagnant genes for dinosaur-like features. But even so, the final outcome won’t be the clone of a dinosaur. - William Hurt, Richard Dreyfuss, and Harrison Ford were all offered the role of Dr. Alan Grant but it was later played by Sam Neil.
