Ever since the first Jurassic Park movie hit theaters in the early '90s, cinematic dinosaurs have been a pretty big deal. It didn't hurt that Stephen Spielberg enlisted the talents of the inimitable Stan Winston to bring his dinos to life, and with that immensely successful first offering, a film franchise was born. As of late 2020, there have been a total of five films in the Jurassic Park franchise, and each one offers new and exciting creatures to thrill and terrify audiences.
Fans have been watching and re-watching the movies for years, and many of them have picked up on some hidden and small details spread throughout the movies. A few of those eagle-eyed fans have taken to the MovieDetails subreddit to share their findings.
The more interesting of those little tidbits are listed below, so take a look and see if there's anything about the Jurassic Park films you didn't already know. If you do spot something new and interesting, be sure to give it an upvote to see which one rises to the top!
The T-Rex From The First Movie Is The Same One In 'Jurassic World'

Nobody Knows What Happened To Dennis Nedry
According to Redditor u/MVP2585, a small detail in the second film revealed that Nedry's fate remained unknown.
In Jurassic Park: The Lost World (1997) Malcolm argues with Hammond about playing down the deaths of three people, even though four people died in the original film. This was because no one knew what happened to Dennis Nedry.Cool detail?
'Jurassic World' Reused Some Of The Props From The First Film
Jurassic World was set on the same island as Jurassic Park, and as Redditor u/gametime98 noted, the jeep from the first movie found itself in the fourth:
In Jurassic World the Jeep used to escape was the same jeep that brought people in Jurassic Park.Cool detail?
Dr Wu's Corruption Was Evident From The Beginning
Dr. Wu may have seemed like a good-natured scientist in the first movie, but as Redditor u/greg-michaelson pointed out, he wasn't on the up and up:
In Jurassic Park, you can see Dr. Wu erasing a data-sheet in the lab. Erasing lab data is highly improper and unethical in scientific settings, hinting at Dr. Wu's corrupt nature in later films.Cool detail?
