Isla Nublar now features a full-functioning dinosaur theme resort called Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. This new park was built and is now owned by the Masrani Corporation. Owen (Chris Pratt), a member of Jurassic World's on-site staff, conducts behavioral research on the Velociraptors. In recent years, Jurassic World's attendance rates have begun to decline and a new attraction created to re-spark visitor interest gravely backfires, sparking a fight for survival for Jurassic World's employees and visitors.
Jurassic World is the fourth movie in the Jurassic Park franchise, preceded by Jurassic Park (1993), The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), and Jurassic Park III (2001). The Jurassic Park premise and first two films were based on novels by Michael Crichton. Jurassic World's story is based on a screenplay by Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver, Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.
Jurassic World is a direct sequel to Jurassic Park and it takes place 22 years later on Isla Nublar.
No. The events of The Lost World and Jurassic Park 3 are still present but because they happened on a different island, Isla Sorna (aka Site B) they've been "put aside". While neither sequel is referenced in the film, their events have been referenced in the film's promotional materials and viral marketing. For example, in a feature introducing the character Vic Hoskins, it's revealed his team did work involving flying dinosaurs, referring the Pteranadons that escaped at the end of Jurassic Park III.The bones of a Spinosaurus can be seen in the main plaza of the park. T-Rex is even shown to smash through them during the final fight as a way to show that the T-Rex is still the king of the dinosaurs.
The juvenile male T-Rex killed in JP3 was on Isla Sorna (aka Site B). This film takes place back on Isla Nublar from the first film and is in fact the same female T-Rex of that film. The male T-rex in Jurassic Park 3 is also a young, not fully-grown adult. In an inside joke for the fans, the bones that the T-Rex smashes through to get to Indominus Rex during the fight are those of the Spinosaur.
Henry Wu (BD Wong) is the only returning character. The main character of Owen is described in the script as having the characteristics of both Ian Malcolm and Alan Grant, the main protagonists of the previous films. The T-Rex from Jurassic Park also returns, complete with scars from her fight with the raptors during the movie's ending.
While scientific discoveries in the last two decades have revealed that some or many dinosaurs may have, in fact, had feathers, these discoveries were not made at the time of the first two films and therefore all the creatures in the films were portrayed with the commonly perceived design of being scaly and reptilian in appearance. This was however was touched on in Jurassic Park 3, which gave some of the raptors crest feathers. In the movie, the appearance of the dinosaurs is commented upon by the genetic engineer Henry Wu, who points out that none of their dinosaurs are truly "real" dinosaurs due to the genetic meddling needed to correct their DNA, that the real creatures looked quite different and that the creatures that are in the park are what people "expect to see" when they think of dinosaurs.
No, there is not.
According to records and past information, there have been at least 4 scripts. The first script was written by William Monahan (it was later reworked into an almost entirely different script by John Sayles,) an untitled script that was to be used for the film in 2008, and the Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver script (which was being reworked by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly this past summer). Mark Protosevich was said to have worked on the film after 2008 and before Jaffa and Silver's involvement, but in an interview with Ain't It Cool News in 2013 Protosevich stated he never got past the discussion stage with Spielberg.
