Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Dinosaur Protection Group video released
After launching a viral website last month for the fictional Dinosaur Protection Group, Universal has released a new video highlighting the work of Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) in anticipation of the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, opening on June 22.
The video (which you can check out below) features Claire, the founder of the Dinosaur Protection Group (DPG) encouraging dinosaur lovers to visit the DPG’s website and sign up for their newsletter while highlighting the work the fictional non-profit organization is involved in. She explains that her “mission in life is to ensure the safety and protection of these animals” and continues by asking what parents are going to do to make sure their children will have the same experience they did when seeing a dinosaur in person for the first time.
Similar to the website, the video looks spectacularly real and is a clever way of whetting the fans’ appetites as they wait for the sequel to come out this summer. The website includes a “Meet The Team” section which highlights the background of Dearing and newcomers Zia Rodriguez (Daniella Pineda) and Franklin Webb (Justice Smith), a report on the history of dino-ethical misconduct, a “live” Volcano Watch dedicated to the eruption of Mount Sibo and even a mailing list. There is also a section featuring fictional testimonials ranging from aspiring paleontologists to adorable dino enthusiasts expressing their views on the unethical treatment of dinosaurs at the Jurassic World theme park.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum and is directed by J.A. Bayona.
