A Jurassic World-New Year!

Yahoo! It's finally 2015. I'm so excited. It's going to be a great year. We'll have the release of the first Pixar movie since 2013, Inside Out, and two awesome dinosaur movies: Jurassic World and The Good Dinosaur. Wow, this is going to be an exciting year! In fact, before we get into the main part of the blog, let's celebrate with some music from the Disney Channel's Phineas and Ferb episode Happy New Year:

Awesome! Now as you recall, my family decided not to do gift-giving on December 25th due to aforementioned reasons. So we did our gift-giving on January 1st to kick off the new year! It was an awesome day. I got a lot of cool stuff, including several animal models to add to my collection, in addition to several movies and other cool stuff. I'll post the pictures of these things next week.

Days till:
It is: 2 days till my birthday!
It is: 17 days till Martin Luther King Jr. Day
It is: 161 days till Jurassic World's release into theaters!

In the Spotlight:
We already know that the upcoming film Inside Out from Pixar is about the emotions taking place in the mind of an 11-year old girl named Riley. But a new image and movie description from Empire was released that describes the film from an angle you may or may not have thought about it in before:

"What you’re glimpsing here is the colourful consciousness of an 11 year-old called Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias) as seen by the five emotions that govern her life and decisions."
"What you’re glimpsing here is the colourful consciousness of an 11 year-old called Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias) as seen by the five emotions that govern her life and decisions. The five are Fear (Bill Hader), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Joy (Amy Poehler), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and the little fury flame-ball that is Anger (Lewis Black). Between them, the five emotional entities squabble, vie for supremacy and occasionally co-operate in such a way that will hopefully help their young heroine adjust to the sheer newness of life in a big city and all the growing pains that come with being little. But, well… they probably won’t. They may have some growing up to do of their own"
Inside Out premieres July 24 of next year this year!

Topic of the Week Christian Ryan
Now, there was a good chunk of Jurassic World news released last week, so instead of featuring it in the In the Spotlight section, I decided to talk about it here! Firstly, the titles for the Jurassic World Lego sets that will be coming out soon have been released onto the internet. Here they are below:

It is unlikely that this list will reveal any major spoilers (I'm sure Universal and Legendary are making sure to keep such things well under wraps). The set names are as follows: 75915 Pteranodon Capture, 75916 Dilophosaurus Ambush, 75917 Raptor Rampage, 75918 T-Rex Tracker, 75919 Ultra Dino, and 75820 Raptor Escape. It is interesting to note that there is a set called Dilophosaurus Ambush. Does this imply Dilophosaurus will make an appearance in the move?

I've saved the best news for last: the Jurassic World viral website was updated last week! Four new dinosaur fact pages have been unlocked, along with updates on dinosaur fact pages already present on the website (including a new T. rex picture), and a dinosaur size chart!

(Click to enlarge)
The dinosaur size chart is a little inaccurate in terms of the size of the animal's sillouettes in proportion to the other animals on the chart (e.g. Edmontosaurus is significantly smaller than Triceratops even though Edmontosaurus is listed at 42 feet long and Triceratops is only 30 feet in length), but hey, it's a Jurassic Park movie! So who cares if it's a little inaccurate?

New image of Tyrannosaurus rex





In my opinion, these dinosaurs (and the Mosasaurus, which isn't a dinosaur) are awesome! I can't wait to see them in the movie.

My last little update for Jurassic World concerns marketing. Yes, they've actually started marketing Jurassic World products, like what is seen on these Kellogs Fruit Snacks discovered by Instagram user legend_goji14. Here they are below:
I might have to buy these if I see them in the store, if only to own the wrappers!
As you can see, the female Tyrannosaurus rex that will appear in the film is on one of the packages, but on the other is a pack of Velociraptors, presumably the same individuals that make up Owen's "raptor squad", as Jurassic World fans have been referring to the team. In any case, this is awesome!

With the new year here and Jurassic World just around the corner, this year is going to rock! I can't wait to see what other surprises are in store for 2015. May God bless 2015 for people all over the world!
