While it took over 10 years to get a fourth Jurassic Park movie made, Chris Pratt somehow knew he’d be the one to star in it. In a 2010 behind the scenes video for Season 2 of Parks and Recreation, Pratt joked about getting a text message from Steven Spielberg asking him to star in Jurassic Park 4. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which checks out some facts a million years in the making with Jurassic World!
If you’re paying attention there are a lot of easter eggs hidden in the movie. One of the restaurants in the park is called “Winstons”, named after Stan Winston, the legendary visual effects wizard who helped create the dinosaurs in the original Jurassic Park. Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is the voice of the animated Mr. DNA character and Tomorrowland director Brad Bird is the voice of the monorail operator.
