Jurassic World: Dominion Dinosaurs with Feathers

Even though Jurassic Park is undoubtedly the greatest movie about dinosaurs ever made, there are some details that have become dated as scientists have learned new things about the prehistoric creatures. Perhaps the biggest discovery since the original Jurassic Park was made is that some dinosaurs have feathers, solidifying Dr. Alan Grant’s theory about why they might have behaved like giant birds when they roamed the Earth, eventually evolving into the winged creatures we know today.

Jurassic World addressed the idea that completing the gaps in the DNA sequence of prehistoric dinosaur blood resulted in creatures that looked quite different from their real-life counterparts from millions of years ago. But the franchise will give some dinosaurs a scientifically accurate look in Jurassic World: Dominion by giving them details like feathers.

We learned about all the hard work that went into creating Jurassic World: Dominion dinosaurs with feathers from director Colin Trevorrow himself. Read More »

But it sounds like that could change in the near future as NBCUniversal is considering the possibility of making Universal Pictures movies exclusive to Peacock. Read More »
