Jurassic World Dominion will introduce not one, but two new Raptor species to the Jurassic franchise! During a preview for next year's release of Jurassic World 3 in Empire Magazine, director Colin Trevorrow shared details about these new, vicious Raptors and how they differ from the iconic Velociraptors we've become used to seeing.
First up, the Atrociraptors!
"Where the Velociraptor is a little bit more of a stealth hunter, the Atrociraptors are a bit more brutish," Trevorrow explains. "These things will just come at you. And in this particular case, they’ve picked his scent, and they’re not going to stop until he’s dead. They’re pretty brutal. They’re pretty vicious."
The second new Raptor species is called Pyroraptors and apparently, they're Trevorrow's favorite:
"I love the Pyroraptors. I love the Atrociraptors," he says. "There's a little one called the Moros intrepidus, who doesn't do a ton in the movie, but whenever it shows up, I always love it."
The full preview will be available in Empire's Batman Issue which goes on sale December 26th! Once we get a higher resolution image of the new still above, we'll be sure to keep you updated!
