“Jurassic Park” was originally a dealer. The film even has a self-reflective nod to this. In the scene where Hammond and Ellie (Laura Dern) talk about the park’s failures at the visitor center, the set-up shows shelves with “Jurassic Park” merchandise such as t-shirts, lunch boxes, bottles. water and dinosaur plushie; a reminder of how Hammond’s vision is being undone.
As Delouche explains in a behind-the-scenes feature, “Jurassic World: How the Props Were Put Together,” His team recreated some of the goods that had long disappeared in “Jurassic Park,” such as plastic dinosaur-headed mugs. The film’s corporate sponsors made even more money: Coca-Cola provided the mug, while Hasbro provided the dinosaur toy, which came in complete packaging. “Jurassic World” has a reason in the universe for product placement; the movie’s sponsors and the presence of their logo can be explained as they are sponsors of the park.
The group of props doesn’t just stop at trading. As Delouche explained in this feature, “Parks are staffed by employees who have to see parts.” So the support team designed both a custom Jurassic World security shield for additional staff to act as guards and nameplates for additional staff to act as other agents. For the nameplate, they added dinosaur names, inspired by the way Universal Studios theme park employees attach the nameplate with their favorite movies printed on it. Likewise, they make sure to include additional Jurassic World promotional materials, which resemble those at real zoos or amusement parks.
No one but the most eagle-eyed viewer will notice these details. However, the fact that these details are in the background without any extra attention to them, makes the scene look real. When you’re selling an illusion, the little details are just as important as the big ones.
