New Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom video helps us save the dinosaurs


A new video from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’s Dinosaur Protection Group features Bryce Dallas Howard’s character advocating for dinosaur rights.

If you thought dinosaurs were extinct, you’re right. Nothing’s changed. But that isn’t stopping the folks from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom from having a bit of fun.

On Friday, the faux-advocate group Dinosaur Protection Group released a video featuring Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) explaining her stance protecting dinosaur rights.

The fake campaign started with a few social media accounts that cropped up on the Internet in December, but they didn’t immediately reveal the campaign was part of marketing efforts for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

It wasn’t until February that a full website was launched for the group. And by full, we mean full. The website is loaded with all sorts of Easter eggs and goodies for Jurassic Park and Jurassic World fans to explore.

And those hidden bits of information provide us with a lot more information about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom than we’ve seen in trailers. Aside from the fast chases and explosions, we can see a Jurassic World that takes a step back to think about animal rights. Or rather, dinosaur rights.

In one of the site’s blog posts, the character Claire writes:

"It hasn’t been easy getting started. There is definitely opposition – powerful forces, some we know, some still lurking – but we believe there are a lot of allies out there, too. People who share our beliefs. Who support our vision."

This could mean that scary dinosaurs won’t be the only villains in this film. Whoever disagrees with protecting the dinosaurs won’t make it easy for Claire — who literally has to run from dinosaurs again in this movie. Looks like it just won’t be Claire’s day.

Though the advocacy for this film seems like a neat addition to the story’s plot, we’re hoping this doesn’t become too much of a drag on the movie in the way the Star Wars prequels were. Long senate meetings and discussions about policy did not make those lightsaber battles worth it.  So let’s hope Jeff Goldblum talking to a judge will make for some interesting cinema.
