Cancelled “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” Animated Series Artwork

Lets be honest, who didn’t want a The Lost World: Jurassic Park Animated Series. Jurassic Outpost released some details and video covering some details on the series and art earlier this afternoon introduced with this statement.

We were planning on holding this one off until Jurassic June, but much like the dinosaurs of Isla Nublar, we simply couldn’t contain it. While you no doubt know there was an unreleased Jurassic Park animated series in the early 90’s, you probably did not know there was another in development alongside The Lost World. This attempt at bringing Jurassic Park into the animated front was kept under lock and key, without any substantial evidence of existence… until now.

Commissioned by Stephen Spielberg and developed alongside Jurassic Park: The Lost World it’s a really interesting story and the concept art is certainly worth a look. Hybrid Dinosaurs come and go, but Stegosaurus? Timeless.

The Dinosaurs of Jurassic Park vs Reality

Jurassic Park movies are done by the meaning to make it as real as possible, and we all know that Spielberg and Co. did a great work with Jurassic Park. However, we’re talking about movies here and there are certain things that have nothing to do with reality, which have mainly been changed to make the JP movies more exciting.

Ray Arnold

One of Jurassic Park’s computer programmers/control room technicians, Ray Arnold was an apparant chain-smoker; he was rarely seen without a cigarette in his mouth. When Dennis Nedry shut down the park’s safety systems, it was Arnold who was given the bothersome task of finding out what he did and how to fix it.

After failing to get past Nedry’s hacker-style blocks, Arnold decided that shutting off the power would erase all he did, and then the system would come back on in its original startup mode. He was able to shut down the power from the control room, but to properly restore it, he had to go to the generator shed. He never returned. Upon going after him, Dr. Ellie Sattler found only his severed arm and the hungry Velociraptor that killed him.

Ray Arnold was played by Samuel L. Jackson.

Donald Gennaro

A lawyer representing InGen’s investors.

Donald Gennaro was dispatched to look into the affair at Jurassic Park following the accident involving the death of a worker. His employers wanted Hammond to get experts to sign off on the island, and Gennaro was sent to get Dr. Ian Malcolm. They thought he was “too trendy,” but decided to have him come along anyway.

Gennaro had no idea what was being done on Isla Nublar. Upon arriving, he was stunned by the sight of a real-live Brachiosaurus. Before, he was skeptical of Jurassic Park’s future, but after seeing the dinosaurs he became certain they could make a fortune with it. Gennaro wanted to make it so they charge up to $2,000 or $10,000 a day for visitors. However, Hammond made him back down by saying that everyone in the world had the right to see the dinosaurs, not just the super-rich.

Gennaro went on the tour with Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ellie Sattler, Malcolm, and Hammond’s grandchildren. When the Tyrannosaur escaped its paddock, Gennaro abandoned the kids in a fit of wild panic, hiding in a nearby outhouse. This did not save him for long, though. While chasing Malcolm, the Tyrannosaur knocked over Gennaro’s hiding place. Taking one look at the lawyer, the dinosaur quickly gobbled him up off the toilet he was crouched on.

Donald Gennaro was played by Martin Ferrero.

Dennis T. Nedry

Jurassic Park’s chief computer programmer. Dennis Nedry was a grossly overweight, sloppy man who was very much disliked by his coworkers. He designed the system which ran the island, and was counted on by John Hammond to keep it up and running, with additional help from men like Ray Arnold.

Nedry, who was suffering from unspecified financial problems, felt that Hammond was cheating him by not paying him as much as he wanted for his job. After he had failed to persuade Hammond to raise his pay, he turned traitor and secretly met with Lewis Dodgson, who represented a rival genetics company of InGen’s. For a sizable sum, half up front and half on delivery, Nedry agreed to smuggle embryos of all 15 dinosaur species off of Isla Nublar for Dodgson. To do so, he had to shut down all the safety systems so as to avoid the electric fences and spying security cameras. With the power gone, the dinosaurs began escaping from their pens and killing people.

On his way to the East Dock to meet Dodgson’s contact, the merchandise in tow, Nedry wrecked his jeep. While struggling with the winch to pull the vehicle back onto the road, he encountered a cute, seemingly harmless Dilophosaurus. Much to Nedry’s surprise, the dinosaur turned vicious quickly, and spat it’s gooey black venom into his eyes, blinding him. Nedry scrambled back into the jeep to escape, only to find the Dilophosaur in his jeep waiting for him.

He was promptly killed and devoured by the dinosaur.

As for the embryos, the can they were in fell from his pocket during the struggle and was buried in the mud.

Dennis T. Nedry was played by Wayne Knight.
