Our friend RaptorRex has generously been able to share some photographs with us of 'Owen's shack', the location in which Chris Pratt's character lives on Isla Nublar. While we don't know how much the shack will play a part in the film, the shack was seen in the recent AVClub images, straight from the set of Jurassic World. Click the images below for a closer look!
The shack is located on the shores of Moli'i Garden & Fishpond. We can assume that Chris Pratt's character has been living on the island for a while and prefers this shack to any of the hotels or staff accommodation that Jurassic World may offer.
We also have these photographs from across the fishpond, provided to us by Reel Tours Hawaii. They give a clearer look at the location and surroundings, and how the shack developed while in construction.
You can notice a few solar panels, as well as all Owen's fishing gear and such has been added.
In related news, director Colin Trevorrow took to Twitter a couple of days ago to thank the numerous extras that were called in for the filming of Jurassic World in New Orleans. He thanked them for raising the bar for running and screaming. I think it's safe to say there will be a lot of injured tourists on Isla Nublar. Colin also retweeted an extra's tweet about the park bands that they got to keep after filming, which is the same band that Ty Simpkins is wearing in the latest official images that were released.
It seems the production have eased up on leaks as well, since filming in Hawaii. While some leaks are inevitable, perhaps the production and/or Universal are using the leaks as viral promotion. A few harmless pictures of extras having fun on set is very good for the film and gets audiences talking.
An extra on Twitter also posted a crucial plot point for the film which we won't spoil for you, but you can read the tweet here at your own risk.
So the filming of Jurassic World seems to be going well in New Orleans, and we can only hope that we might see a section of the new park in the next official images that leak. Let us know what you think of the shack photos and what kind of part the shack will play in the film, in the comments section below.
New Official Set Photos from Jurassic World!

Today, as producer Frank Marshall teased, we got a second official look from the set of Jurassic World. AVClub posted an article today which included three photos from the set in Hawaii, where we got our first look at Chris Pratt's character in costume, as well as Ty Simpkin and Nick Robinson's characters.
The photo of Chris Pratt is in front of his shack on Isla Nublar. It appears that he uses a motorbike to get around the island, so hopefully we'll be seeing the motorcycle Raptor chase from The Lost World novel. The second picture shows Bryce in the same (or similar) clothes to the previous set photos that we saw.
The third photo gives us our first look at Ty Simpkin's and Nick Robinson's character. It's the classic JP shot - characters frozen in fear looking up at something. I can imagine the two brothers have walked "off the trail" as it were and stumbled upon a dinosaur attack/outbreak. Nick is holding a Jurassic World Construction Worker's hat which appears to have blood and a big cut on it.
To me the third photo especially feels very Jurassic Park. The photos haven't spoiled anything from the film which a lot of fans will be pleased about. Hopefully we will see more soon, like perhaps a poster? Let us know what you think of the photos in the comments!
