Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom director explains that heartbreaking Brachiosaurus scene


Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom might have told the story of how dinosaurs were set free to roam the Earth again. But one scene still breaks our hearts, and now we know more about it.

There were plenty of moments throughout this year’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom that had people talking and even gasping. But perhaps the most heartbreaking of all the scenes is the one where we watched the Brachiosaurus die on Isla Nublar, as the volcano overtook the island and the boat with the survivors got away.

It was a scene that inspired memes and really got people talking, according to ComicBook.com. And now, director J.A. Bayona has opened up about what went into creating that scene, as well as the goal behind that devastating moment.

In an interview with ComicBook.com, Bayona talked about the devastating moment that got people talking by saying, “For the impact that created on you and I think somehow that moment reflects the ending of a dream.” The dream in question is this park filled with dinosaurs that were brought back from extinction.

Knowing how big that moment was and the fact that it was the end of a dream, Bayona shared that, “It had to be effective in order to pay tribute and justice to the idea we were trying to tell. It had to have impact.”

And it certainly did have an impact. That was a scene that made us feel emotional and want to save this dinosaur (and perhaps if we could have others left behind) from his demise. At the same time, it was also a very telling moment in the movie as it set things up for what happened in the final moments of the movie when all of the dinosaurs were set free on an unsuspecting world.

How could we once more watch all of these dinosaurs be killed without doing whatever was necessary to try to save them? Even with deadly predators in the mix, it was near impossible to consider the idea of once again watching innocent animals suffer and die because of the hubris of humans.

While it was not the adults who made the decision to save the dinosaurs from certain extinction, can anyone blame the young girl who did save them? Of course not. She had even more of a connection with these creatures than any of the other characters, she was like them.

Ultimately, this was one of the messages that J.A. Bayona wanted to get across: this visual representation of the relationship humans have with the other creatures that share this planet with us. As Bryce Dallas Howard, who starred in Fallen Kingdom, explained, “Overall, these movies have become about the relationship between human beings and animals.”
