Jurassic World 3 Theory:
Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom didn’t just set up a third & final part of the trilogy, but it may have opened a doorway to a far greater & complex world that includes human-dino hybrids. The big reveal of the Fallen Kingdom was that Maisie was a human clone of Sir Benjamin Lockwood’s daughter. As we walk through the film, we figure out that Lockwood (the founder of InGen) had a falling out with his former partner John Hammond (the creator of Jurassic Park) due to the fact that he played God, and actually cloned his dead daughter with their newfound cloning technology. But this human clone might actually be more complex than what meets the eye.
At first glance, Maisie looks & feels similar to a regular child. But, since this franchise presents a scenario of humans & Dinosaurs co-existing with each other, Screen Rant presents a theory that Maisie is actually a big step forward towards human-dino hybrids. That’s because she possibly has dinosaur DNA present in her genetic code. She is one of a kind as not only is she the first human clone in this franchise, but there’s a massive chance that she is a successful human-dino hybrid.
This is a franchise where a Dinosaurs are created with DNAs multiple species of Dinosaurs & other animals. The genetic makeup of Indominus Rex (Jurassic World 1) includes the DNAs of Tyrannosaurus rex, Velociraptor, Carnotaurus, Giganotosaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops, Pycnonemosaurus, Quilmesaurus, Viavenator, Deinosuchus, Therizinosaurus, cuttlefish, tree frogs & a pit viper snake.
Then in Fallen Kingdom, we saw the Indoraptor, which was cloned with the DNAs of Velociraptor, Indominus Rex, and other Earthly animals. We’ve had no problems in believing that scientists were able to cook these weird dinosaurs. The franchise is about Dinosaurs, so even if it sounds absurd, a human having a bit of Dino DNA in his/her genes would be in line with rest of the franchise. So naturally, the next step in evolution might actually be about human & Dinosaur hybrids. And, we’d have to extend our “suspension of disbelief” to make do with the fact that Maisie is the first of the Dino-Human kind.
Jurassic World franchise co-writer, Colin Trevorrow has promised that Jurassic World: Dominion won’t feature any crazy lab-cooked hybrid dinosaurs as the story is moving back to the basics, focusing on the humans & Dinosaurs finding a balance to live in a joint ecosystem. At first it’d be difficult as both humans & dinosaurs will possibly try to wipe each other out. But they’d possibly find middle grounds because of Maisie. She’d be the living manifestation of the fact that Dinosaurs & humans can coexist.
Back in 2018, Medium‘s Rhett Wilkinson presented hints and details in Jurassic World that Maisie is actually a human-dinosaur hybrid despite her seeming so normal. He pointed out that Maisie was introduced with a musical cue which was previously used for dinosaurs, and she possibly even behaves like a dino in the beginning as she tries to hide from Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) upon their first meeting. Furthermore, if her genes actually include Dino DNA, then her instinctual move of setting the dinosaurs free at the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom would make more sense in a weird way. The logic that was presented was that Maisie empathized with the Dinosaurs because she herself was a clone like them. That’s why, she couldn’t let them die and set them free despite partially understanding the risks & consequences of her actions.
But still, people had a hard time wrapping their heads around this relatability. Because practically, there’s no one who might have allowed the Dinosaurs to go free as that’d pose a massive danger to the existence of humans & other animal species on Earth, in the longer run. But, if Maisie is part dinosaur, then her empathy towards those creatures would make sense even though she herself isn’t aware that she is part Dino.
Multiple ideas of the scrapped Jurassic Park IV movie were included in the eventual Jurassic World film. For instance, Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) training the Velociraptors, and the concept of the hybrid dinosaurs came from the unused ideas given by writer John Sayles. In his script, there was also a subplot that involved hybrid creatures that were created using a mix of human, dinosaur, and canine DNA. In both Jurassic World movies, we’ve witnessed the ideas of creating intelligent dinosaurs that could be weaponized and used as human-controlled ammunitions of warfare. So, a human-Dino hybrid could certainly offer these results that they have been desired in the Jurassic World duology. If Maisie possesses Dino DNA, then we’re certain that Jurassic World: Dominion will set up a new franchise which will include hybrids that not only have human traits in their physical & mental structure but will also have the traits of Dinosaurs.
By Jurassic World 3, people might grow tired of seeing just humans & Dinosaurs squashing their beef. So, as absurd as it may sound, human-Dino hybrids will surely give us the making of the next phase of this franchise. Producer Frank Marshall has expressed that he’d continue making Jurassic Park related films even beyond Jurassic World: Dominion. Since this franchise has proven to be a massive success for Universal, we’re certain that they’d share the beliefs of producer Frank Marshall. So, it remains to be seen how the creatives handle Humanoid Dinosaurs in the future. Will they end up produce stupid moments like a Velociraptor saying “Alan” like Jurassic Park III, or will they offer something far more complex & intriguing. Let’s see.
