Jurassic Park screenwriter gives praise to the Jurassic World script

Jurassic Park writer David Koepp was recently intreviewed by the Radio Times while promoting his new film and naturally, the topic of Jurassic World came up. As reported back in 2012, he was approached to draft a Jurassic Park 4 before Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly were brought on board, which he turned down. However, Koepp has revealed that he has read some drafts of Jurassic World and thinks they're terrific.
"I'm very excited, I read a couple of drafts of their scripts and thought it was terrific."
He also talked about the challenge of finding new ways to bring people to he island after the previous instalments and that Jurassic World does this in a believable way.
"The thing about the Jurassic Park movies is they’re not a serialised adventure, as you’re not following a character as he goes off to a new place. Every time, you have to come up with a reason why rational people would go back to this island. I think they did it brilliantly this time in a way that I absolutely believe a hundred percent, and makes me really believe in the movie."
In addition to talking Jurassic World, he also spoke about the original movie. Among the things said, Koepp stated that he ranks Jurassic Park as his best work.

While there are a good few months until the toys for Jurassic World are released, Hasbro are showcasing some of their upcoming items this week in London, at the 2015 Toy Fair.
We know that there were no human figures or vehicles on display, but there were a number of items from their Hero Mashers line which we posted about on Monday, as well as a Velociraptor and Dimorphodon from the more traditional line. Check the pictures out below:
The article also gives a price of £14.99 for "Hasbro Jurassic World Growlers Assortment".
In related news, a Hasbro catalog has been discovered online which also reveals some of the items in the Jurassic World toyline. There was also this pretty funky piece of artwork in there:
Be sure to check out the catalog here, and take a look at some of the items which features the Hero Mashers that we have seen previously. The Jurassic World section starts on page 52.
What do you think of the Velociraptor and Dimorphodon shown above? Let us know in the comments section below!

First official look at Hasbro's Jurassic World toyline!

Thanks to an interview with Forbes, we now have our first official look at some of the items from the upcoming Jurassic World toyline. The interview was with Adam Biehl, the Vice President of Global Brand Strategy and Marketing for Hasbro where he talks about the success of the Hero Masher toys and how they are introducing this line to the Jurassic World toyline.
FORBES: Did you have any obstacles expanding into the Jurassic World’s non-humanoid form Hero Masher world but still making them a part of the Hero Masher universe or are you going to encourage, at least for the first wave, to keep Jurassic World Hero Mashers with Jurassic World Hero Mashers?
Mr.Biehl: I think any challenges we had, I think our design team solved very elegantly. This is a connected system of play, that’s very important, at the heart of it. But we’ve done, already in 2014, we’ve done all different sorts of body types—from athletic fit guys like Spider-Man to big bulky guys in Hulk—we’ve done dino-based characters in the Transformers Hero Mashers line. Our holiday set included Grimlock [from Transformers: Age of Extinction], which is a huge dino, so we’ve been working on how to make this all fit together as an interconnected play system from the beginning. We designed it from the beginning to be such, because we really had a vision for this to be a platform of play not just an in and out segment.
The article shared some pictures of the toyline, which you can see below.
The first picture features three Jurassic World Hero Mashers from the Dino Assortment. The approximate retail price is $9.99. The second picture shows A Hybrid Dino Assortment “unmashed” Triceratops ($14.99) and an “unmashed” T-Rex from the Tyrannosaurus Rex Pack ($19.99). The final picture shows what looks like a Stegosaurus and a Spinosaurus at most likely the same price as the items above.
However, these Hero Mashers are only a small section of Hasbro's line. These non-final prototype images have appeared on online retailers and show a more traditional look to the dinosaurs. Click the images below for a larger view!
Above we have the Allosaurus Basher ($9.99 - 8"), the Chomping Rex ($19.99 - 18") and the Titan Raptor "Echo" ($12.99 - 12"). The line is schedule to be released "Spring 2015" to coincide with the movie's release in June.
