Jurassic World Concept Art Reveals a Very Different Indominus Rex
In 2015’s Jurassic Park sequel Jurassic World, the theme park was open to a new attraction, the Indominus Rex. The new hybrid creature escaped and was the most dangerous of all the escaped dinosaurs. Concept artist Ian Joyner has shared some early concept art for the Indominus Rex that never ended up being used in Jurassic World.
In Jurassic World, the Indominus Rex was a new dinosaur created by Ingen’s Dr. Henry Wu by combining different dinosaur DNA, most notably the T-Rex and the velociraptor. On his page, Joyner — a freelance concept artist who has worked on movies and video games — describes the artwork as “an early exploration for the Indominus Rex in Jurassic World. No one particular dinosaur was referenced, as it was a hybrid creation.”
Ultimately, Jurassic World went with a different concept of Indominus Rex, but this is an amazing look at a dangerous new creature.
