While “Jurassic World: The World After” has been in theaters since last Wednesday, a look back at the first part of the saga, with a practically impossible quiz, reserved for die-hard fans…
Can you find your way around with your eyes closed in the jungle of Isla Nublar? Do you know exactly how to react if you ever find yourself face to face with a T-Rex or a velociraptor? You think that “life always finds a way” ? In short, are you an unconditional fan of the first Jurassic Park?
While Jurassic World: The World After, the final installment of the saga, has been in theaters since Wednesday, the time has come to check that your memories of the original feature film are intact by trying to answer these few very difficult questions.
Directed in 1993 by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic Park follows the adventures of a group of scientists invited to an island by billionaire John Hammond, who wants them to discover a preview of his brand new amusement park. Shortly after arriving by helicopter, they are totally surprised when they find that Hammond has managed to genetically recreate real dinosaurs.
DID YOU KNOW ?
The same T-Rex
The female tyrannosaur Rexy (or Roberta, as special effects genius Phil Tippett gave her a nickname) is arguably the most important dinosaur in the entire saga. First appeared in Jurassic Parkshe is back more than 20 years later in Jurassic World, where she faces the terrible Indominus Rex, then in Fallen Kingdom where she is released into the wild with the other dinosaurs, and finally in The world afterwhere she battles the titanic Giganotosaurus.

Early in the film, when the helicopter lands on Isla Nublar and Alan Grant tries to buckle up, he finds that his belt has two identical buckles. A small reference to the fact that in Jurassic Park, “all animals are female”and are therefore normally unable to reproduce.
Towards the end of the feature film, when the characters are chased by the raptors, the grille of an air duct is reflected on the body of one of the dinosaurs, projecting on it the four letters A, C, G and T. They actually correspond to “adeline”, “cytosine”, “guanine” and “thymine”, the four bases of DNA.
