Forget what you know about Jurassic Park. Forget about how mercilessly the raptors terrified Alan Grant and those kiddies, how the T-Rex ripped apart Donald Gennaro on that toilet, and all the chaos wrought by the Indominus Rex in Jurassic World. Instead, let’s go back to a more peaceful time in this remix of the Jurassic Park films as a nature documentary.
Done in the style of Disney’s Bears, Chimpanzee, and African Cats, the video from Mashable re-envisions the iconic films as Raptors from Mashable Nature. It’s here we meet Littletail, a young dinosaur who takes her first steps into the world contained on the dino-filled island and discovers “love,” “struggle,” “wonder,” “joy,” “danger,” “passion,” “uncertainty,” and other buzz words. If only there was an actual feature film attached to this, I’d hop on that Indiegogo wagon in a flash.
Watch the spoof trailer below.
The world of Jurassic Park returned to theaters last year with Jurassic World from director Colin Trevorrow (now moving on to helm Star Wars: Episode 9) and his star Chris Pratt. Welcoming back Isla Nublar in a future where genetically spawned dinosaurs were commonplace, the film introduced the concept of training dinosaurs, specifically raptors, for potential military missions. It’s a concept we’re still thinking about as Universal sets preparations for a sequel.
Trevorrow, who’s returning in at least a producer capacity, teased that the geneticists behind Jurassic World won’t always be the only ones to breed dinosaurs. “It’s almost like InGen is Mac, but what if PC gets their hands on it?,” he told Wired U.K. “What if there are 15 different entities around the world who can make a dinosaur?” Universal Pictures Chairman Donna Langley also remarked that Trevorrow and Steven Spielberg are outlining trilogy plans, so even if some genius never puts together a full-length dinosaur nature mockumentary, we won’t be thirsting for raptors anytime soon.
