Jurassic World did the near impossible. It made you feel the nostalgia of Jurassic Park, the excitement of The Lost World, and pretty much ignored Jurassic Park III. It was a $200 million dollar love letter from a very talented fan to the franchise itself. And you better believe there were lots of Jurassic Park Easter eggs hidden throughout.
The film had so many moments where you not only remembered what made you love the series in the first place but virtually relive them in a new, updated way. Don't get us wrong, the first film is a classic and can't be touched. But any time a film stands up to an iconic movie like Jurassic Park it should be praised. How many fourth installments in a film franchise are watchable, much less improvements (in some ways) on the sequels that preceded them?One of the things Jurassic World did very, very well is plant Easter eggs, hidden features, and nods to other movies. The film felt like a love letter because of these little moments and this list of Easter eggs in Jurassic World highlights the best. These are the best Easter eggs in Jurassic World! Vote up the best and most nostalgic!
Dr. Henry Wu Is Back
The only (human) actor to appear in both the original Jurassic Park and Jurassic World is B. D. Wong, who plays Dr. Henry Wu. He was Hammond's right-hand man (in genetics) in the first film and carries on his legacy here (but, as we learn, with his own agenda).
Mr. DNA Is Back!
Remember that adorable little animated creature that explained genetics to everyone in Jurassic Park? He pops up for a second in Jurassic World, when Gray (Ty Simpkins) is touching all of the displays in the visitor's center. (Fun fact: director Colin Trevorrow voices him in this iteration.)
The T. Rexes from "World" and "Park" Have the Same Tastes
In the first film, they lure the big bull T. rex out with a goat, and even he still likes them in 2015. They also get him to give chase via road flares, a trick used once again in Jurassic World.In fact, we know it's the very same Tyrannosaurus rex that *SPOILER* saves them at the end of the film, as per the very visible scars given to him at the end of the first film.
The Banner from the Final Battle Makes an Appearance in "World"
When Zach and Gray find the original visitors' center from Jurassic Park they find pieces of the skeleton that was shattered when the T. rex threw an attacking velociraptor into it. They even use the fallen banner that says “When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth” to create a makeshift torch.That very scene is somewhat re-created when the Indominus rex smashes into the visitor’s center and has a triumphant roar in the lobby.
