Everyone is excited for Steven Spielberg's newest blockbuster, but what fans really want right now is a list of Jurassic World dinosaurs that will appear in the film. This list goes over the most important dinosaurs that will appear in Jurassic World, and what kind of role they might play in the film. In Jurassic World, we'll finally get to see what has been teased since the first Jurassic Park movie: a fully functioning dinosaur theme park. Will things go wrong? Of course they will, because if we've learned anything from the Jurassic Park movies, it's that "nature always finds a way."
There will be a lot of dinosaurs on display in Jurassic World. Some you have seen in the three previous movies, like the fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex, the vicious velociraptor and the gentle, three-horned triceratops. Others, like the ominously named Indominus rex, are genetically altered monstrosities that were made just for the movie. People seem to be most excited about the inclusion of water dinosaurs in Jurassic World, with the aquatic Mosasaurus getting a lot of screen time in the trailer.We picked our 15 favorite dinosaurs that will be on display in Jurassic World. Which one would you not like to meet alone in the park?
Indominus RexIn Jurassic World, the engineers set out to create the most fearsome dinosaur ever with Indominus rex, which means "fierce or untamable king." At first glance it resembles a T. rex, but its distinctive head ornamentation and bony osteoderms can be traced from Therapods known as Abelisaurs. Its roar can reach the decibel level of a plane taking off and it can run at speeds of up to 30 mph.
- Among the largest carnivores to ever walk the planet, the Tyrannosaurus rex has appeared in every Jurassic Park movie. Fossils show marks that could only have been made by other T. rexes, but there hasn't been a reported family feud (yet) at Jurassic World.
- This carnivorous, aquatic dinosaur ruled the ancient seas and hunted fish, reptiles, birds and even great white sharks. It grew to over 60 feet long and weighed up to five tons. The Mosasaurus has been a fan favorite in the trailer so far, with many speculating that the creature will have a major role in the film.
- The velociraptor was one of the most intelligent dinosaurs and hunted in packs. In Jurassic World, they are not yet trained for public display. Considering their behavior in the previous three movies, this should come as no surprise.
