Thanks to a user on Instagram, we have a first look at the vehicles in Jurassic World, and what's better than knowing that we will be seeing an old and memorable vehicle return?! An original staff vehicle from Jurassic Park, a Jeep Wrangler, apparently is returning, having arrived in Hawaii.
The Wrangler is looking old and rusty, perhaps hinting that we will be seeing parts of the old park return in flashbacks or in a section of the film. The vehicle looks like it's been left for quite some time and number 29 was the vehicle that Hammond rode in with the Lawyer, when they first get to the island. The return of this Jeep could mean we will see a part of the park that we never saw in the first film, or that the vehicle has been simply saved by the Patel Corporation. We really don't know how the Jeep will be used at this point, but it's exciting to speculate!
The photos come from a member of the Universal Studios Transportation Department, who is currently on Hawaii. He also posted a photograph of another vehicle which is supposedly for Jurassic World, which looks like an armoured security vehicle reminiscent of the vehicles used by InGen in The Lost World. If you look closely at the photograph you will see another vehicle behind the armoured truck.
Today is an exciting day; not only do we find out an original Jeep from the first film will be returning, but today also marks the first filming day of Jurassic World. Colin Trevorrow and his crew are shooting at the Honolulu Zoo today, with a lot of extras we are told.
If you, like me, have been waiting for this film for give-or-take 12 years, then today doesn't really feel real. It's hard to describe the feeling. I wish the best of luck to Colin Trevorrow and his crew and cast, who I'm sure are going to make a sequel that we're all going to love.
Stay tuned as news comes in. It's going to be a busy few months!
