Now that production for the upcoming Jurassic Park film, Jurassic World: Dominion, is back underway, we’re getting all kinds of new looks at the movie. These include teases of returning cast members like Sam Neill, but also new looks at the film’s massive array of practical dinosaur effects. Now we’re getting a look at some kind of entirely new type of dinosaur for Jurassic World: Dominion – something called a Pyroraptor.
Now it should be stated that the images of the supposed Pyroraptor that will be making an appearance in Jurassic World: Dominion aren’t exactly showing any kind of animatronics. In fact, they merely show off the maquette that’s being used to represent the Pyroraptor. This means the final design of the creature could be changed at any time during post production. Nevertheless, this is our first taste of the creature – and no doubt it’ll leave a nasty impression on moviegoers when the final film is released next year.
Looks Like This Might Be Jurassic World Dominion’s Pyroraptor Which I Reported On A Few Months Back.
Now this is just a maquette not an animatronic so it’s used for reference and the design might change for the final film.

It appears that the Pyroraptor will likely be some kind of new dinosaur hybrid, not unlike the Indominus Rex and Indoraptor that were featured in past Jurassic World films. It’s exciting to see this trend continue and it’ll be interesting to see how exactly the Pyroraptor will be used to keep things fresh when comparing the beast to past dinosaur hybrids.
The upcoming sequel, Jurassic World: Dominion, will feature stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, Dichen Lachman, Mamoudou Athie, DeWanda Wise, Scott Haze, and Campbell Scott.
Jurassic World: Dominion is currently still scheduled to meet its theatrical release date on June 11, 2021.
Stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any further updates on Jurassic World: Dominion, and that includes any other looks at the Pyroraptor or any other dinosaurs that might be getting teased soon. It’s definitely going to be a difficult wait for 2021 when the film finally comes out.
