As June 12 nears, the anticipation for Jurassic World continues to grow. In a new featurette, Chris Pratt, Steven Spielberg, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, and Bryce Dallas Howard wax nostalgic about the first time they saw the original Jurassic Park.
“It was a breakthrough movie,” producer Frank Marshall says. “Seeing it live for the first time was extraordinary.”
While Simpkins wasn’t born until eight years after the 1993 blockbuster, the young actor recalls how he dreamt of being in a Jurassic Park movie after seeing the first movie.
For Spielberg, “To see Jurassic World come to life is almost like seeing Jurassic Park come true.”
And Pratt, who saw the original movie at the perfect age for a kid, was forever pinching himslf. “Every now and then [on set] we’d take a moment to look at each other, very light under our breath, be like ‘What are we doing here? This is kind of crazy,’” he says. “We kind of feel like we snuck into the party.”
