It was the year 1997, I was about six years old and we went to watch The Lost World: Jurassic World. Not that I registered much back then, but it was an amazing experience, and later I caught up with all the movies when I could really understand what the hell was happening. Cut to 2015, we went for Jurassic World, and the world changed.
The reason I began with the Lost World anecdote is because the final trailer of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has dawned upon us. And it has full-on LW feels.
While JW picked up 22 years after the events that happened at Jurassic Park, JW:FK is picking up after disruption caused on Isla Nubular where our “friendly” dinosaurs roam free. They need to be evacuated as they face extinction due to an impending (read: mega) volcanic eruption.
Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum (yuss, he's back) and James Cromwell are on a mission to save Blue — one of the last surviving velociraptor — and others, of course, only to learn that the whole mission was to make money and weird cross-bred dinosaurs out of the whole thing. Men never learn, do they?
Sounds hell a lot like Lost World? Well, Netizens can't get past that fact, and are discussing it at length. And we can't help but agree.
So JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM is just a remake of THE LOST WORLD: JURASSIC PARK? pic.twitter.com/WArq6Wm1Ir— Adam Frazier (@AdamFrazier) April 18, 2018
No, you're not.
Okay, so I can't be the only one who's noticed that Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is basically the same plot as Lost World?— Beth Elderkin (@BethElderkin) April 18, 2018
Only with more volcano
I’m so glad JURASSIC WORLD 2 is doing something new, like sending snarky people back to save dinosaurs from a greedy corporation that brings the dinosaurs back to the U.S. where a giant carnivore escapes and attacks a suburb at night and OH WAIT THAT’S THE LOST WORLD NEVER MIND.— William Bibbiani (@WilliamBibbiani) April 18, 2018
Same to same.

Pretty much that.
Jurassic World: The Lost World 2.0 but the island’s exploding and we made up our own dinosaur again— Lil Mitchy (@erasexme) April 18, 2018
True that, dude.
I know it’s just Lost World all over again… but I actually want to see the new Jurassic World… I also know I should know better… but… dinosaurs!— Olaf Blomerus (@OlafBlomerus) April 18, 2018
So Jurassic World is Jurassic Park if the Park was open.— Jamal The Weeknd (@reggiegotlag) April 18, 2018
Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom is The Lost World just with more Dinosaurs outside the island...
So is Jurassic World "3" gonna be a a parent is stuck on the island and the kid dies?
This is a bad idea in the history of bad ideas. Or maybe, NOT!
P.S. The new dino they have genetically made is called Indoraptor, who makes all hell break loose on the large estate it's on. Cute!
The film, written by Colin Trevorrow and directed by JA Bayona, is looking for a June 2018 release — we shall confirm the India release date with y'all when we know.
*goes back to awwing at Blue*
