Jurassic World Dominion has previously addressed the anticipated criticisms about the film’s dinosaurs. The Pyroraptors featured in the new teaser provide a clue as to how the film will aim to avoid animal cruelty complaints. There will very certainly be times when their actions are seen as implausible, if not outright absurd.
The second full trailer for Jurassic World Dominion gives us a better idea of what the humans and dinosaurs may expect in the franchise’s next (and likely last) film. Dinosaurs have been unleashed into the world as a result of the conclusion of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Naturally, forcing humans to cohabit alongside genetically modified dinosaurs will result in a variety of unusual circumstances. Some of them have already been shown in trailers, which depict Jurassic World’s characters and returning favorites from the original trilogy coping with some of the new realities introduced by the previous film. The Spinosaurus, the Quetzalcoatlus, and the Pyroraptors are among the perils they’ll face during the film.
Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) were assaulted by a Pyroraptor while standing over a frozen body of water. The dinosaur surprised everyone by digging beneath the ice and swimming across the water with ease. The dinosaur’s ability to swim has already been mocked, but it looks like
Dominion has a solution to this major flaw. Claire exclaimed “that can’t be true” in reaction to what transpired, revealing that even the characters don’t think the Pyroraptors are capable of swimming like that. This indicates that the film will eventually find a method to explain the dinosaurs’ strange behaviors in Jurassic World Dominion.
What’s going on with the Pyroraptors may be indicative of a new approach to the dinosaurs. In other words, other creatures in Jurassic World Dominion’s story may display their own surprising capabilities. For this reason, the sort of complaint that the swimming Pyroraptor is generating won’t be restricted to just that specific dinosaur. But Dominion can tackle this problem head-on by creating an in-universe explanation. These dinosaurs were born from genetic engineering, so science would most likely be at play here.
Genetic changes that have developed from the cloning process could be responsible for the swimming Pyroraptors and other new dinosaur behaviors in Jurassic World Dominion. Since the cloning origin is the backbone of the Jurassic World franchise, it does seem plausible for the movies to use this fundamental aspect of the story to continue taking occasional liberties with certain dinosaur species. Many scenes that may seem silly on the surface could instead be additional consequences of messing with dinosaur DNA.
