As pretty much everyone knows, Jurassic Park the movie was pretty different from Jurassic Park the novel. Characters that weren’t meant to live survived to see the end of the film, a bunch of dinosaurs from the book were excised, and in some cases reused in other corners of the Jurassic Park mythos, and, most importantly, Ian Malcolm originally died in that first novel. Of course, that last part was reversed by Michael Crichton himself, as he revived Malcolm for The Lost World, thanks to some extensive surgeries.
Not to mention, that same book saw InGen personnel return to the island to recover as much material as they could, in hopes of giving their rival, BioSyn, a leg up on their own dino efforts. Fans of the original film and novel will remember that Dennis Nedry was the first person to try and complete this exercise, with rather fatal results. There’s no clear blueprint as to where Jurassic World 2 will draw from Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park, but if the film follows the pattern we think we’re seeing, both novels in the series could inspire quite a few stories to be told in this new Jurassic universe.
