Say Jurassic fans and Anime fans what do you guys think it would be like if the Jurassic franchise gets an anime show or movie?
Recap, we know that in the Arcadia several young specimens were taken, together with a developed adult in which it would be a male, as I identify here by his size. According to the material shown at the autodesk conference, the Allosaurus will differ in size, with the females reaching 12 meters high, and leaving the Allo as another predator of larger dimensions in the franchise
I don't complain about this, but I think it's exaggerated at another level
I decided to write this for all the new users who have popped up on the wiki in past few months
Now, I post various things here, but MW is the most prominent(along with memes). Since it’s release almost two years ago, it’s done really well for a fan story, and there’s been a lot of history behind. Now I feel there are plenty of newer users here who wonder what I’m talking about, and that is the reason for this post. I wanted to do a sort of “trailer” for my novel here, to see if I can get some more critics, and readers...
So what is Malchom’s Woods?
To make it simple, it is a personal take on the events after JW:FK, and a odyssey of sorts. I started writing it back in 2018. At first, I wanted to make a film, but that became impossible, so I eventually wrote a chapter called Different Faces. This was the starting point for the novel, and since 2018, the shifts in it’s plot, have been so major, that the original concept is a completely different story. However, I can assure you that what the tale is now, is it’s perfection. I digress. It takes place some years after the incident on the mainland, and tells the tale of two characters primarily, Joshua Malchom(spelling is intentional), and Ember. I shall condense the story summery here:
“Little time has passed since the tragic events of the Lockwood Manor occurred. Illegal genetic engineering has become rampant, and a mysterious disease has caused the American Southwest to be abandoned. Among all this, in a small town called Glen Rose, a man known as Joshua Malchom, Ian Malcolm's nephew, and a rogue Raptor designated Ember, will embark on rather turbulent journey that will then force them to survive in a near-apocalyptic hell. All be welcome to the woods..."
The description seems forced, but to explain it all would be a Targum on the novel, which we don’t have time for. At first glance the story seems to be a action-adventure story, but elements of Drama, Horror, Sci-Fi, and Philosophy are prominent. The last one may puzzle you, but in writing, I have included parts in the tale that are seemingly heavily off-topic, yet still directly linked to the main plot, such as going over cultural significances of mountains, while our protagonist dwell in them.

What is the story about?
As mentioned before, it follows the lives of two characters: Joshua Elmer Malchom, and a Velociraptor dubbed Ember. Joshua is the nephew of Ian Malcolm, a thirty year old, who stays behind in Glen Rose, Texas, when the American Southwest is evacuated because of a mysterious Virus that appears(kind of relevant I know...).
The other, Ember, was a male Velociraptor that was cloned on Isla Nublar sometime before 2004, and because of several events, was to be euthanized. But, he managed to escape several years later during the events of JW:FK. Ember made it to the mainland, where he stumbles across Joshua. I shall leave the rest for the book, but the events involving the two do not go over as one might expect. The title is allegorical partially, but the heart of the story takes place in several different places in the Americas, specifically Arizona and New Mexico.
The novel is currently 12 chapters long(the next is in production), and are built from 4-5 headings from several different points of view, giving different perspectives on the same event(s). It is recommended for readers anywhere from 15 and up, but some things may not be suitable for younger readers.
What do readers say about the novel?
I have gotten mostly positive reviews for it, that in fact, I can only remember one person having distaste for it, for uknown reasons. It’s usually praised here by the community, and has gotten its own fan art and logos. It usually gets around 4 out of 5, and 7-8 out of 10.
I have also written two other works that help explain events and characters in the universe:
So, I think that should explain the work fairly well. I would love for the newer users here to check out the novel and become readers of the work. I highly recommend looking into it, because I believe there are some concepts that will possibly give you some ideas on how JW:D will occur. Here is the link to the story:
I have made a kind encyclopedic area on the Jpfanon wiki, where I have a collection of commentaries and such on my series, which I suggest looking at while reading the story.
Anyhow, I hope you guys enjoy your day/night, and be sure to leave a ❤️ to help keep this post hot. See ya.

We know that there were 5 Allosaurus saved on the Arcadia and 1 other juvenile died during Mount Sibo’s eruption. We know that, of the 5 Allosaurus we know were saved, 4 were juveniles and 1 was adult sized. It has been stated by the makers of Battle at Big Rock that just 1 year after the eruption, a juvenile grew to adult size. So, was there another (possibly not saved) adult on Isla Nublar that bred, or were younger batch of Juveniles grown after that 1 adult.
If if you ask me, I think this in line with large carnivore aging in the franchise, as the Tyrannosaurus reach maximum size at 5 years old and the highly modified, Masrani era Indominus Rex reached full size at 3 years. Natural born Allosaurus born after the Indominus outbreak could potentially be mature at 4 years after the incident.
What do you think?
This is the last episode of JW Motion Comic. This contains spoilers read at your own risk.
So, this takes place right after Battle at Big Rock. This is sadly (or not sadly to some) probably the last episode of the series. Because it says, “The End” instead of “To Be Continued...”. So what happened, it first shows the news report of Battle at Big Rock event. Blah blah blah. Allosaurus attacks them, ramming the van to a tree, killing the driver. Rebecca runs to a tree, she left her phone outside and it gets destroyed.
Rebecca remains silent but the Allosaurus senses her and they look at each other right in the eyes. Then it ends there.
Does Rebecca die? I’m pretty sure she will survive, yes the skull can fit inside the tree, but she was backing up so the Allosaurus will try to attack her but it will fail and it will leave her alone. But what do you think? Before we go, I’m going to say Nasutoceratops looked weird.

So, last night, I put on my JP gear, and sat down to watch BABR... And WOW...
Wow is probably the best I can muster for such a a amazing project. Salute to all who worked on this. So let’s begin my review:
The plot of this short was grand. The whole storyline of the family inside of the trailer was very realistic. I can see the series is now having the animals be just there; Not running amuck, and slaying Human civilization, as many “Fans” want.
This movie’s plot, is really just the prologue to JW3, showing us that the world has changed, for better or worse, and Humans are starting to try to adapt to the change... But not very well.
The right for me was really short, and we really only got to see it through the window. Still, this is the second time a Theropod has fought with a ceratopsian, with the other being the Sino Vs. Carno. RIP Carny, my little(Big) friend. Overall the suspense, terror, and action is brilliant for such a short price of work.
The choices were appropriate, and I think they worked really well: The new version of a original animal, and a new Ceratopsian few have ever hear of. This will hopefully make Nasuto a household name, like JP3 did with the Spinosaur.
The designs were amazing, and I really loved the Allosaurus, it is probably one of the best designs for a theropod I’ve seen in a very long time. It just was menacing as Hell, and looked gnarly.
Not much can be said, they were ok, they’re just your average family from a movie, but I am glad we have new characters to remember.
What I loved:
The Allo design
The Nasuto male’s design
The trailer destruction
The post credit scenes
What I hated:
The Crossbow- That girl wouldn’t even be able to pull back the bow, much less shoot two arrows with a 1/2 second interval, like Legolas from LOTR.
The short battle
The lie(?) that there would be a old character returning.
Well, that’s my thoughts. Tell me what you think below! And don’t forget to leave a ❤️!
Since the director of the new franchise, Colin Trevorrow, acknowledged that the allosaur we see in Big Rock was the same one at the end of Fallen Kingdom. I think it would be nice to honor her with a nick name the community can recognize her by. So what do you all think of the idea, and what ideas do you have for a nick name?
Oh well... I watched Battle at Big Rock today.
While I thoroughly (mostly) hated Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (other people might have different opinions) I am and I've been pretty confident with what Jurassic World 3 has to offer. Unlike what I've thought Battle at Big Rock was going to be, a simple separate story that adds nothing new, this does not. Battle at Big Rock is such an amazing piece of film for the Jurassic Park franchise. Its not superb, but its pretty good. I'm going to demonstrate the importance this short has for the franchise and how I think the next movie should (and likely will) follow its example.
So this is a great story because it focuses on a handful of people trying to get over a situation with dinosaurs. Simple as that. The film starts with radio or tv commentary regarding the birth of the Nasutoceratops calf, the first baby de-extinct dinosaur to be born in official US soil, meaning these dinosaurs are already being born outside the Costa Rican islands. This is important to estabilish the canon. But this is just bonus information. The real action and the real story is about this honest family who has gone camping, happily ever after. The camera work gives it a perspective almost solely focused on the members of the family. You see the entire fight, in most shots, through the window of that van. Its also worth noting how the animals are depicted in this. Yes, its still very cinematic, its JP, but you see the Nasutos gathering in the camp, and people are visibly scared and wary. The Allosaurus then comes to the party but its not suddenly a monster slash carnage. That was one of my criticisms in JWFK, is that dinosaurs fight with no reason. The Allosaurus is there because it wants a meal, and targets the baby Nasuto. Its only when the parents gather together they stand their ground with the Allo and the fight is over. Its more realistic than other fights. But as we all know, the family is hidden in the van and... the baby cries. You know what happens next. The Allosaurus destroys the van and attempts to eat humans now. You can see how mighty the Allosaurus looks like in accordance to all those humans and how powerless they seem to such a big animal. But at the same time, the Allosaurus does not rush to attack the humans at first, when both the father and the mother stand their ground in front of the menacing jaws of the carnivore. However, only when the daughter (that knows what a Nasutoceratops is with that age, I would be proud) uses a crossbow (we knew that would come) to shoot arrows into the Allo, the dinosaur flees away. The Allo is shot with some arrows in its face, something that is definetly not going to kill it, but the dino just flees away. That is how animals work, they don't want to get hurt at any circumstance. This short works because it is one of those incidents in which an animal invades the vacations of a family, but everything goes alright. The difference is that this is in a much larger scale (these are dinosaurs after all).
By far the biggest juicy part is the post-credits. You can really see what is going to happen and what is going to be the vibe of Jurassic World 3. Its exactly what they said they were going to do, give us the idea of dinosaurs going free in our world and see them act as they were real animals. They show five different clips of different animals acting with humans and natural extant life. First we see Compies arrassing a young girl, which seems to be the best clip of all, for how realistic it looks. The camera with the car falling down the road so to flee from a Stego looks also very amazing. The guys canoeing while a Parasaurolophus drinks looks okay as well, not as vivid as the others. The Mosasaurus coming after a jumping shark, however, seems very fake to me (it is fake, but its just too noticeable). The Pteranodon attacking the wedding doves also feels false and unrealistic. I would prefer a Dimorphodon (if these species are still alive), because such a large pterosaur wouldn't soar so low, just for a little pigeon, and the big pterosaur also flew too freakin fast.
So that's it. I believe this short was very, very pleasant. I really hope they might make more shorts, or at least promos like those little shorts that had in the post-credits scenes. I haven't seen any complains on this movie yet, for now I can see that everyone liked the short film. This definetly brings me more excitement for Jurassic World 3, but still, we should take that with a grain of salt. I mean, we never know, maybe JW3 isn't as good as this short will make us think. But only time will tell...
BATTLE AT BIG ROCK is an all-new short film directed by Colin Trevorrow, premiering on FX on Sunday, September 15.
The short takes place one year after the events of the last film in Big Rock National Park, where dinosaurs are now living in our world. The story follows a family of four whose encounter with these wild animals becomes a terrifying fight for survival.
