...Yeah i got a question, why are they continuing to make Jurassic Park?
"They" is just a group of Jurassic Park fans who love the books and movies, and want to contribute to the JP community with a fanfilm
. We won't be making any money, we won't be trying to "remake" Jurassic Park, it won't be a sequel, etc. It will be some fans' vision of a prequel to Jurassic Park. It's entirely for fun, entertainment, and in honor of Michael Crichton and Stan Winston

The plot will follow Jurassic Parks' creation, from 1980 to 1989. We will learn how John Hammond gained the funding for the cloning/genetic engineering, we'll see how the team is assembled (Wu, Nedry, Muldoon, etc), we'll follow the struggles and triumph of attempting to recover the dino DNA, and we'll get to find out what it's like to bring back dinosaurs that man knows so little about. What we want to do throughout the story is highlight many of the themes Crichton emphasizes in the novel. For example, Crichton begins the novel "Jurassic Park" talking about the new found power of genetic technology (Even 20 years after the book's release, genetic technology and research is a topic of hot debate). Through the book, Hammond exemplifies the hubris of man thinking he can control nature, whereas Malcolm contrasts by pointing out the inherent flaws in this kind of thinking (via Chaos Theory and "life will find a way"). Our film won't feature Malcolm, but along the way various characters will voice concerns over the degree of recklessness with which scientific power is being wielded, and the total lack of understanding of creatures being brought back from a distant past. We will also be tying the end of the short film into the events of the first film in what we think is a cool way. We don't wanna give it away, but we think the prequel will be a fun set-up to then watch JP1.
