JURASSIC WORLD Concept Art Reveals Raptor Arena

WARNING: This article contains major spoilers for Jurassic World!

Jurassic World is out and it’s absolutely killing it at the box office, so apparently now the concept artists are free and clear to share their work. Some imagery just surfaced via artist Dean Sherriff and concept art company Gadget-Bot, and it’s all absolutely stunning.

There are a bunch of familiar shots in the mix, like when Gray (Ty Simpkins) and Zach (Nick Robinson) check out the original visitor center and when Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) leads the T-rex out of confinement using a flair á la Ian Malcolm, but there’s also some work for visuals that weren’t featured in the film, like a “Raptor Arena.” We never see raptors as part of park attractions in the final cut, but apparently the filmmakers once considered featuring a show that involved a “raptor hunt.”

Another interesting detail to note is the title of some of the images featuring the Indominous Rex. Instead of labeling the concept art with “Indominous,” Gadget-Bot uses “Malasaurs.” Perhaps that could have been the hybrid’s original name or just a placeholder until the filmmakers could come up with something better. (Although I don’t know if “Indominous” is much better.)

You can take a look at some of the Jurassic World concept art below, but I highly recommend checking out Sherriff and Gadget-Bot’s full galleries here and here.
