At 1:50 on the Blu-ray, young Gray is viewing dinosaur images
View-Master stereoscope, made by
first image we see him looking at is from the Prehistoric
Animals View-Master set. The second image is from the 1956
documentary film by Irwin Allen, The Animal World.
At 2:05 on the Blu-ray, a sort of generic knock-off version of a
Robby the Robot (from the 1956 film Forbidden Planet)
toy is seen in the background in Gray's room. Also seen are a
model of one of the U.S. space shuttles and a poster of what
appear to be generic versions of pixelated aliens from the
Space Invaders video game.
Notice that Gray has a number of dinosaur figures on shelves in
his room, but they all appear to be of the herbivorous variety.
Judging by the toys, models, posters, and other items in his
room, Gray is a big fan of dinosaurs, robots, space, spaceships,
the U.S. space program, and still photography.
At 2:15 on the Blu-ray, another space shuttle model/toy is seen
as well as a snowspeeder from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes
Back, and a couple of

the Christmas season.

When the passenger boat docks at Isla Nublar at 4:40 on the
Blu-ray, notice there are banners flying in multiple languages
The Jurassic World park is located on Isla Nublar, where the
first, never-opened Jurassic Park was built. The breeding
island, Isla Sorna, seen in The
Lost World and Jurassic Park III
and other stories in various media, is not mentioned by name in
The sign Zara is holding at the dock in order to make contact
with Zach and Gray reveals their last name is Mitchell.
At 5:10 on the Blu-ray, Zach can be seen wearing
Converse All-Star sneakers.
At 5:21 on the Blu-ray, it can just barely be seen that Zara,
sitting behind the boys on the monorail for the ride into the
island's interior, is reading a book with Ian Malcolm's photo on
the back cover. The reflection of the book cover in the monorail
window reveals the book
is God Creates Dinosaurs by Malcolm himself. In
Jurassic Park, Malcolm made the
observation, "God creates dinosaurs. God destroys dinosaurs. God
creates man. Man destroys God. Man creates dinosaurs."
The book is a seen as a background detail in a few other shots
in the film as well.
The boys are staying at a
at Jurassic World.
A video sign behind Gray at 5:46 on the Blu-ray advertises
Jurassic Tennis! Presumably, these are just the tennis courts at
the Hilton resort.
While giving some potential corporate sponsors a tour of the
park's facilities, Claire remarks that 20 years ago
de-extinction was right up there with magic. De-extinction
is an actual term used for the proposed reintroduction of
extinct species through such means as cloning and selective
breeding of existing, related species. In the real world, these
attempts have been made mostly since the beginning of the 21st
Century, but the 20-year figure Claire is here referring to the
genetic engineering of dinosaurs from recovered DNA as
established in Jurassic Park.
The genetically engineered hybrid carnivore that drives the
action is this film is called Indominus rex. The name
is essentially Latin for "untamable king". According to the
Jurassic World website, the Indominus was created
from the DNA of Tyrannosaurus rex, Giganotosaurus,
Rugops, Majungasaurus, and Carnotaurus.
These are all real world theropod dinosaurs.
While Tyrannosaurus rex is a well-known part of the JP
milieu, Giganotosaurus and Carnotaurus also
appeared in previous stories, such as
Prey and Redemption.
The film later reveals that the DNA of Velociraptor,
tree frogs, and cuttlefish was also used in concocting the
beast and an interview with the film's dinosaur consultant James
Horner has him stating Therizinosaurus, another large
theropod, was also used (to get the large arms on the
Dr. Henry Wu, the chief geneticist first seen in
Jurassic Park, returns in
this film. He was last seen in
"Redemption" Part 4.
As the camera does an aerial pan over the shopping and dining
district of the park, several businesses are seen:
Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville,
Sunrio Tequila Bar, and Winston's. Sunrio appears to be a
fictitious establishment. The "Winston's" name is a tribute to Stan
Winston (1946-2008), the practical effects designer who designed
the live-action dinosaurs of the first three JP films.
At 8:43 on the Blu-ray, notice what appears to the
Spinosaurus skeleton (on the left edge of the screen)
decorating the shopping district of the park. It's seen more
prominently during the Indominus/raptor fight near the
end of the movie. Maybe it's the
skeleton of the Spinosaurus from
Jurassic Park III (though
she was still alive at the end of that film)!
At 8:47 on the Blu-ray, notice a banner for Cretaceous Cruise
at the park. On the other side of the pedestrian path, notice a
giant-size re-creation of a couple pieces of amber with
prehistoric insect bodies trapped inside.
This film does away with the egg-shaped door handles concept
leading into the visitor's center (called the
Innovation Center), seen in the previous films.
At 9:03 on the Blu-ray, the Hammond Creation Lab is seen as one
of the attractions inside the Samsung Innovation Center. John
Hammond was the founder of InGen and the original Jurassic Park.
The shot of dirt being brushed away from a dinosaur fossile at
9:18 on the Blu-ray is an homage to a similar scene (in the
Montana Badlands) in
Notice that the educational hologram Gray partakes in at 9:51 on
the Blu-ray features the animated Mr. DNA, first seen in
Jurassic Park. Here, Mr. DNA was
voiced by director Colin Trevorrow; in
Jurassic Park, it was Greg Burson

Answering Vivian's question about whether she closed the deal,
Claire responds, "Looks like it. 'Verizon Wireless presents the Indominus rex'."
Verizon Wireless is a real world provider of wireless
At 11:22 on the Blu-ray, Claire appears to be drinking a coffee
A Starbucks cafe is seen at the park at 27:08.
At 11:30 on the Blu-ray, Lowery has a bag of
Ike candy at his workstation. Steven Spielberg is said to be
a fan of the candy.
Claire questions Lowery's choice of wearing a classic Jurassic
Park t-shirt (which cost him $150 on
whether it's in poor taste. He acknowledges that, yes, people
died there, but he admires that they only had "real" dinosaurs,
not genetic hybrids. This may be a self-referential in-joke to
why the park is now called Jurassic World and a self-deprecating
joke on why the Jurassic World film has a "non-real"
hybrid dinosaur as its star.
The scene in the control room reveals that some of the dinosaur
pens have "invisible fences", with the animals kept within the
fence boundaries by electronic implants in their heads. It is
mentioned that sometimes
the pachycephalosaurs short out their implants when they butt
Vivian tells Claire that the errant
pachycephalosaur has been tranquilized with 5 mg of carfentanil.
Carfentanil is a real world drug, an opioid intended
only for use in tranquilizing large animals. It was used to
tranq a T. rex in The
Claire tells Lowery to clean up his work space because it's
"chaotic". This is an obvious reference to Dr. Ian Malcolm's
chaos theory objections in
Jurassic Park. Lowery
responds that his work space is a "living system", with just
enough stability to keep it from breaking down. Claire seems to
have an instinctual grasp of how living systems and chaos work
when she surreptitiously slides Lowery's wastebasket closer to
him with her foot just before he knocks his soda cup off his
desk while reaching for his Mike and Ike bag.
The helicopter Masrani lands in is a Eurocopter (now
Airbus) EC120 Colibri and has the tail number JW001. The
JW must stand for Jurassic World. This same copter later crashes
through the roof of the aviary in a pterosaur swarm, killing
Masrani claims that John Hammond entrusted him with the park
with his dying wish.
The raptors in this film do not have the feathers on them that
the ones in
Jurassic Park III did.
The four raptors in this film are called
Echo. The names
Echo come from the NATO phonetic alphabet designations for C, D,
and E. B is normally "Bravo", but obviously Owen decided to call
the beta raptor "Blue" due to the blue stripe on her body. Owen
himself is "A", the Alpha. A somewhat similar naming scheme,
based on the Greek alphabet, was used in
"Animals/Men" by Drs. Grant and
Sattler for the three raptors captured by Columbian drug lord
Rafael: Alf (Alpha), Betty (Beta), and Celia (Kappa, "K" because
the Greek alphabet does not a "C").
The baby dinosaurs in the kids petting/riding zoo appear to be
Triceratops and maybe Gallimimus and a
sauropod of some kind (according to the script, these are

Claire's cell phone is a Samsung Galaxy.
Claire's cell phone displays Karen's phone number as
608 area code matches to the city of Madison, Wisconsin, which
is the originating city the phone also displays.
The 555 prefix of the phone number is a
long-time convention in Hollywood TV and film.
The license plate of Owen's 2010
Scrambler motorcycle is 9Z9982.
Claire's car is a 2015
Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupé.
While working on his motorcycle, Owen is seen drinking a
Owen has a small Sunrio sign on his bungalow.
At 29:44 on the Blu-ray, a
Baja Motorsports MB200 mini-bike is
seen parked alongside Owen's bungalow.
The giant fish that's fed to the Mosasaurus appears to
be a great white shark. The shark may be a reference to Steven
Spielberg's breakthrough film, 1975's Jaws. The
Mosasaurus seen here is much, much larger than
the real species was; like three or four times bigger! A mosasaur
previously appeared in "The
"Redemption" Part 5.
Notice that even the jaded, moody, teenaged Zach is impressed
Mosasaurus makes its dramatic appearance.
It's not clear how long Jurassic World has been open, but Claire
mentions that the park needs a new attraction every few years to
reinvigorate the public's interest. This implies that the park
has been open long enough to have needed at least one previous
new attraction to reinvigorate interest, so I would guess it's
been open six years or more. If this is the case, the park would
have to have opened not long after the events of
which seems to take place in 2008, and in which Tim Murphy makes
his own attempt (along with Peter Ludlow and Dr. Wu)
at a project similar to Jurassic Park.

The construction truck the Jurassic World watchman hides in
front of when the Indominus breaks out of its paddock

The construction vehicle Owen hides under is a
Series crane truck.
At 38:32 on the Blu-ray, the Jurassic World watchman is
clutching the pendant of his necklace in his hand as the
Indominus approaches his hiding place. The pendant is
probably a cross or crucifix as he silently prays to survive the
At 41:28 on the Blu-ray, we can see that the raptor muzzling
cages were made by
a real world manufacturer of farm and ranch equipment such as
cattle chutes and animal pens.
Notice that both of the raptors in the muzzling cages start
growling when Hoskins steps near them. They must be a good judge
The safari vehicle driving the tourists through the
Gallimimus herd at 42:46 on the Blu-ray is a 1971
Steyr-Daimler-Puch Pinzgauer 712 M, originally made as an
all-terrain utility vehicle for military use.
Notice the park monorail is seen in the background during the
Gallimimus herd scene.
The dinosaurs seen by the tourists canoeing down the river at
44:15 on the Blu-ray are

The ACU team members carry what appear to be a fictitious type
of taser rifle.
The video and life-sign transmissions from the ACU team (and
later the InGen security team) seen in the control room are
similar to the transmissions of the Colonial Marines in the 1986
When the ACU team finds the clawed out hunk of flesh with the

similar scene in The
Indominus kills most of the ACU team, Owen tells
Masrani and Claire they need to put their M134 on a chopper and
smoke the creature. He is referring to an
M134 Minigun, manufactured by General
Electric from 1962-present. The weapon is best known in pop
culture for its use by Arnold Schwarzenegger as the protector
Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Notice later at 1:12:20 on
the Blu-ray, that the minigun has indeed been mounted to
As they are standing in line for the gyrosphere, Gray is telling
Zach, "...the soft tissue is preserved because the iron in the
dinosaur's blood generates free radicals, and those are highly
reactive. So, the proteins and cell membranes get all mixed up
and...and act as a natural preservative. DNA can survive for
millennia that way. Even if the amber mines dry up, they'll still
have bones--" then Zach tells him to shut up. Gray is relating
evidence from an actual fossil case where soft tissue was found
in the marrow of 67 million year old T. rex bones. Read about it
in this article at LiveScience, "Controversial
T. Rex Soft Tissue Find Finally Explained".
Upon learning that the
Indominus has the previously-unknown ability to
camouflage itself by changing skin color, Masrani challenges Dr.
Wu on how it happened. Wu explains that the creature has
elements of cuttlefish DNA in order for it to withstand the
accelerated growth rate they subjected it to, and cuttlefish
also have the ability to change skin color to blend in with
their surroundings. Cuttlefish are not actually fish, but
cephalopods, which themselves are capable of growing to great
sizes as they grow older. Cuttlefish also have a camouflage
ability. Wu also tells him tree frog DNA was used, and the frogs
are capable of modulating their infrared output, accounting for
Indominus' ability to evade the heat sensors in
its paddock (although how the beast knew it could be tracked by
infrared is not explained!). These examples of modern animal DNA
having unexpected side-effects on the park's engineered
dinosaurs obviously is a callback to the frog DNA that allowed
some of the raptors to change from female to male in order to
reproduce as depicted in
The model dinosaur skeleton glimpsed on a shelf in Dr. Wu's
office at 51:47 on the Blu-ray appears to be a species of
Parasaurolophus. A couple more skeleton models are visible
on the shelf as well, but only their lower halves, leaving them
The video that plays inside the gyrosphere is hosted by Jimmy
Fallon, a real world comedian and host of the late night comedy
talk show, The Tonight Show in the U.S. since February
2014. Fallon also hosts video introductions that play during the bus

During the boys' gyroscope ride, they encounter a mixed herd of
Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Parasaurolophus,
When all the gyrospheres are recalled back to the resort due to
the escape of the
Indominus rex, the boys ignore it and
decide to continue exploring. Shouldn't the park administration
have the ability to override the controls of all the gyrospheres
and return them to their starting point for just such a
As the boys pause the gyrosphere to discuss the possibility of
going off-road through the broken barrier at 56:36 on the
Blu-ray, notice that a couple of Parasaurolophus are
engaging in a stand-off in the distance behind them.
As Gray gets nervous about being outside the designated
boundaries in the gyrosphere, he tells Zack they'll get
arrested, get their heads shaved, and they'll have to make root
beer in the toilet. Zach doesn't seem to know what he's talking
about, but his younger brother is referring to prison inmates
infamously brewing alcohol (or, occasionally, non-alcoholic,
sugary beverages) from ingredients commonly available in prisons
and fermented in hidden places such as a toilet tank.
The safari vehicle Claire and Owen drive in their search for the
boys is a 2013 Mercedes-Benz G 550.
The InGen military-type vehicle that appears at 1:04:37 on the
Blu-ray is a
Textron Marine & Land Systems Tiger. A second later, an
General HMMWV M1025 is seen already on the beach.
Owen carries a Marlin Model 1895SBL rifle during his and
Claire's search for the boys in the jungle. He also has it

that she's ready to continue into the jungle and rescue her
nephews. The same knotted shirt style was worn by Dr. Ellie
The golf cart-like vehicle spotted by the boys at 1:07:35 on the
Blu-ray is a
Kawasaki Teryx4 LE.
The old building the boys discover in the jungle is the ruins of
the unfinished visitor center seen in
Jurassic Park. Notice the handles
of the main double door are in the egg-shaped form. At 1:08:49,
notice that the "When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth" banner that
fell from the ceiling at the end of
Jurassic Park is seen in tatters
on the floor; Zach uses part of it to create a torch seconds
The boys light their torch with matches Gray is carrying. Why is
a 10-year old boy carrying matches?!

The goggles that Gray picks up at 1:10:05 on the Blu-ray are the
same type of infrared goggles that Tim uses in the Explorer in
The old Jurassic Park Jeeps the boys find at the visitor center
are the same 1993
Wrangler models seen in
Jurassic Park. Gray says they are
1992 models...there are conflicting reports of what models were
used in the original film.
Zach reminds Gray of when they fixed up their grandpa's old
Malibu. The Malibu is a Chevrolet mid-size car model.
At 1:13:16 on the Blu-ray, a sign behind Zach reads
"Peligro--Alto, Voltaje". This is Spanish for "Danger--Stop,
The old Jurassic Park Jeep Zach and Gray fix up and get running
to escape from the jungle is #29...the same Jeep John Hammond

Jurassic Park! And the Jeep they
leave behind next to it is #18, the one Drs. Grant and Sattler
At 1:15:32 on the Blu-ray, Owen jumps over the fossil skull of
the T. rex skeleton in the visitor center (which collapsed at
the end of
Jurassic Park). The Indominus
tromps the skull under foot just seconds later.
At 1:15:51 on the Blu-ray, the
Indominus looks a lot like an alligator from
At 1:16:20 on the Blu-ray, the flight crew of the helicopter are
wearing Alpha flight helmets. Alpha is a real world manufacturer
of flight helmets.
The two men flying with Masrani in the helicopter say they
served in Afghanistan. This refers to the U.S. war in
Afghanistan from 2001-2014.
The aviary is seen to hold Pteranodons and
Dimorphodons, possibly pterosaurs as well.
At 1:19:17 on the Blu-ray, notice there are pterosaurs reflected
in the Jeep's rearview mirror as Zach and Gray race down the
The ATV Owen commandeers at 1:20:10 on the Blu-ray is a Kawasaki
Brute Force 750.

The scenes of the pterosaurs attacking the guests of Jurassic
World is reminiscent of the similar attack that occurred at
Universal Studios theme park in Florida in
At 1:20:55 on the Blu-ray, notice that a man in front of Jimmy
Buffet's Margaritaville makes sure to grab
two margaritas off the table before running for his life from
the dive-bombing pterosaurs! That's amusing in itself, but the
man is actually Jimmy Buffet himself!
At 1:20:26 on the Blu-ray, a Jurassic Traders store is seen.
At 1:21:00 on the Blu-ray, an IWC store is seen. IWC stands for

ice cream shop is seen.
At 1:22:16 on the Blu-ray, we see that the petting zoo is called

is seen. It appears to have a Pterosaur movie as the feature
presentation. IMAX is short for Image MAXimum, a 70mm (as
opposed to the typical 35mm) motion picture film and screening
process, shown on a special, large screen only in IMAX theaters.
During the scenes of the pterosaurs attacking the park-goers in
the business district, Owen is seen shooting down some of the
flyers with a semi-automatic tranquilizer rifle that would seem
to have been custom made for the park. The woman who hands him
the rifle in the first place is armed with a
X-2 Tranquilizer pistol.
The InGen helicopter with tail number CR-1017 that flies
Hoskins' men to the island is an
AgustaWestland AW109A. The tail number seems to be
completely fictitious; possibly the "CR" is meant to mean Costa
Rica, but that country uses "TI" as the prefix of aircraft tail
The rifle one of the InGen security team uses to shoot down a
Dimorphodon from the helicopter at 1:25:47 on the Blu-ray is a
Heckler & Koch
The large map of the island seen at 1:29:59 on the Blu-ray shows
a label for the park's botanical gardens and the Jurassic World
Lagoon in the middle of the island, a body of water not seen in
previous maps. Possibly the lagoon is man-made and was
constructed specially for the park in recent years.
The Mobile Veterinary Unit Claire and the boys seek shelter in
at 1:30:48 on the Blu-ray is a Mercedes-Benz Unimog U 4000.
As he observes the raptor operation to find the
Indominus, Hoskins remarks, "Imagine if we had
these puppies in Tora Bora." Tora Bora is a cave system in the
White Mountains of Afghanistan and during the U.S. war against
the Taliban government of that country at the time, the Taliban
were believed to be hiding in those caves, along with the
mastermind of the September 11, 2001 attacks in the U.S., Osama
bin Laden. Hoskins is probably referring to the raptors' ability
to track prey by smell and would have liked to have been able to
get bin Laden in that manner.
At 1:34:06 on the Blu-ray, notice that Hoskins swipes Lowery's
soda cup to take a drink!
The tracking device Barry has on his quadrunner is a

M136 AT4 Rocket Launcher at the
As he and the other men pursue the
Indominus on foot with the raptors having turned
against them, Owen says, "Watch your six!" This is military
parlance for "watch your back."
During the Indominus hunt and raptor chase, Barry is seen wielding a
870 rifle and a
Wesson Model 500 revolver.
At 1:39:01 on the Blu-ray, notice that the ignition key of the
Mobile Veterinary Unit has a Jurassic World keychain on it.
At 1:42:24 on the Blu-ray, notice there is apparently a video
camera in both the cab and the bed of the Mobile Veterinary
Unit, as we see Claire driving and the boys sitting in the back
on the multi-monitor screen in the control room!
At 1:44:12 on the Blu-ray, why are there a number of what look
to be animal (presumably dinosaur) spines in giant liquid-filled
tubes, attached to wires? Is it part of the side research
Hoskins was talking about with Dr. Wu? More clandestine
experiments to make weapons out of dinosaurs?
|The lizard in the aquarium at 1:44:20 on the Blu-ray looks as if
it may have small feathers on its back. Another resurrected
prehistoric reptile? A hybrid? Seconds later, we see what looks like
a salamander with a Dimetrodon-like fin along its back.
At 1:46:19 on the Blu-ray, notice there is a bronze statue of
John Hammond standing at the entrance of the Hammond Creation
The dinosaur hologram that startles the raptor as it chases the
humans out of the Hammond Creation Lab is a Dilophosaurus,
as seen previously in
At 1:48:27 on the Blu-ray, a
jewelry store is seen in the business district.
Claire uses a flare to attract the T. rex's attention
just as Dr. Grant did in
Jurassic Park. Maybe she
heard about Grant's action in that original crisis and it gave
her the idea!
According to director Colin Trevorrow, the T. rex in
this film is the same one that appeared in
Jurassic Park. If you look
closely, one can, at times, see the old scars from the battle
she fought against the raptors at the end of that film.
As the T. rex chases Claire, it crashes through the
skeleton of the Spinosaurus. This scene may have been
included as a symbolic "revenge" by the T. rex against
the Spinosaurus that killed a T. rex on Isla
Jurassic Park III.
After being bashed through the walls of a few buildings by the
T. rex during the battle, notice that the Indominus
has spears of iron rebar sticking out of its body at 1:53:39 on
The Mosasaurus jumping out of the water and grabbing down the Indominus
rex may be another nod to Jaws, where the great white
shark jumps onto the end of the boat Orca and grabs
The fire truck seen at 1:55:37 on the Blu-ray
is a KME
Renegade. The word Bomberos on the cab door is Spanish
for "firefighters". The "CR" in the door emblem probably stands
for "Costa Rica".
The rifle being carried by the soldier who walks past the fire
truck is an M16.
What happened to all the pterosaurs who escaped from the aviary?
Presumably, at least some of them flew to the mainland to cause
trouble, just as occurred previously after the aviary was
compromised on Isla Sorna in
Jurassic Park III, as
seen in Flyers and
The Devils in the Desert.
Notes from the Jurassic World website
The Jurassic World website (www.jurassicworld.com)
serves as a combination of advertisement for the movie and as
the in-universe website of the Jurassic World theme park,
telling guests how to purchase tickets, accommodations, listing
attractions, history, etc.
The website gives the following list of dinosaurs present in
the theme park (not all are seen in the film). Only 18 species
are listed, but in the film, Gray says the park currently has
20. Gray's count of 14 herbivores and 6 carnivores also does not
John Hammond died in 1997.
InGen was bought by Masrani Global in 1998.
Jurassic World opened in June 2005. This would seem to contradict
statements in the
Redemption comic book mini-series that suggest both Isla Nublar and Isla
Sorna are under protected status as of the 2006-2008 timeframe, with
no public park in existence.
Isla Nublar was discovered in 1525 by Spanish navigator Diego
Fernandez. Fernandez appears to be a fictitious seaman.
native Bribri tribe on Isla Nublar called the island Guá-Si
(Water House, or, House beyond Water) and themselves as
Tun-Si (Water Men). The remaining members of the
tribe were moved off the island when InGen bought it in 1987.
This roughly coincides with Nima's story of her people on the
island as stated in
"The Survivors" (though she does
not mention the name of her tribe or its name for the island).
The Bribri are an actual native people inhabiting portions of
Costa Rica and Panama and some of the islands off the coasts of
these two countries. As far as I can tell, the words Guá-Si
and Tun-Si are from a fictitious language.
Isla Nublar is home to a unique subspecies of tufted deer called
the Nublar tufted deer, Elaphodus cephalophus nublarus.
The Masrani Corporation works in cooperation with the Costa
Rican Environmental Protection Society to ensure the safety of
these and other animals native to the island. The Costa Rican
Environmental Protection Society appears to be a fictitious
