“Jurassic World” released in 2015 to critical and commercial acclaim. The part-reboot of the franchise saw a new big bad dinosaur introduced on the big-screen as Indominus Rex which wreaked havoc in the eponymous adventure park.
The movie showed that they hybrid monster was created by InGen and the Masrani Corporation which together developed it as a mixture of many dinosaurs and kept it in containment since its birth in a laboratory. All hell broke loose when the hybrid Rex became smarter than the average dinosaur and was able to break free of his shackles and run amok in the Park. The rest of the movie was about how Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), a Navy veteran and raptor expert/trainer at Jurassic World works with others to bring it down.
The dinosaur was received warmly upon the release of the movie and many said that though it was not nearly as frightening as the T-Rex from “Jurassic Park”, it was effective enough.
Now, a new piece of behind-the-scenes concept art has revealed a new look at what Indominus Rex could have been.
The design comes courtesy artist Ian Joyner, a credited concept artist on “Jurassic World”.
The art depicts a dinosaur that still resembles a T-Rex, but one with a yellow-jacket-like striped pattern and longer, sharper spikes along its spine and elbows. It also has much smaller arms and claws than the final version of Indominus, but they are still enlarged.
The sequel to the 2015 box-office smash, titled “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” is set for release on June 22, 2018 and set photos from that movie have indicated that a new hybrid dinosaur will be introduced in it.
So what if Indominus didn’t make it at the end of “Jurassic World”? We will always have another threat to look forward to!
