20 Roaring Facts About the 'Jurassic Park/Jurassic World' Franchise

It all started in 1993, when Richard Attenborough welcomed us to Jurassic Park. Then for nearly 30 years now, we have seen multiple sequels and a reboot, video games, and lots and lots of toys dedicated to the worst idea for a theme park ever put to print and film. Yet when it came to obtaining this merch and watching these movies, we spared no expense.

Fans of all ages still watch the movies they’ve grown up on, or show them to their own little dino monsters to enjoy. The mixture of science (sort of) and imagination (sort of) is what makes the franchise (sort of) magic. A lot had to happen in order for these movies to get off the ground, some stuff which was mostly only known behind the scenes until recently. There are also some dino Easter eggs here and there that make for nice asides for keen-eyed fans.

Here are some behind-the-scenes facts and Easter eggs regarding the Jurassic Park/World franchise.
