PostSubject: How can they bring up Isla Sorna?   Sat Dec 16, 2017 4:29 pm

The fact that there is a second island where the dinosaurs from JP were bred, but not the dinosaurs from JW, is kind of confusing for general audiences. Last time Sorna was brought up was 2001. But at the same time, they need to establish that Sorna exists so that observant moviegoers don't think, "why can't they just ship dinosaurs from Sorna?" Of course the answer is that it's a restricted area now but that needs to be brought up in the film.

How can this be done in an elegant way that isn't confusing or distracting? We need dialogue that establishes the following:
1. There is an island called Isla Sorna that also has wild dinosaurs.
2. It was used to raise the animals that would be shipped to Jurassic Park.
3. It is off-limits.
4. It is the intended destination of the rescued Nublar stock.

How will they do this? Maps? It just seems like a lot of exposition to explain where the rescued dinosaurs are intended to land. Maybe it happens in the manor, or the courtroom? Ugh, I just hope it happens at all.

They already did the "you mean there's 2 islands with dinosaurs?" shtick in JP3. I'd expect they could avoid confusion by a couple lines of dialogue during the court scene.

Perhaps in the courtroom scene somebody could suggest that they take the dinosaurs from Nublar to Isla Sorna, but the idea is shot down for some reason.

Shot down because perhaps because it would heavily overpopulate the island (seeing as in 20+ years the island would probably already be at equilibrium) and possibly cause a die off in the protected 'natural' area

Its simple. Just have Malcolm during the courtroom scene say "I ran away from dinosaurs twice already"

Actually, he would have to say that he ran from them 3 times, since you would have to count Papa T. rex in San Diego in The Lost World. Razz

Lockwood leads Owen & Claire to believe they are going from Nublar to Sorna before his true intentions are revealed to them on the island. This is according to Neomorph back in May.

They need to crystal clear use the name Sorna or site B. I need to hear that. Don’t be wish washy with it imo.

As long as there is an allusion to it, I'm fine. For instance, if Malcolm mentions the San Diego Incident, or something like that. Honestly, as long as TLW and JP3 are still cannon, I'm good

There's plenty of opportunity during the courtroom scene to directly mention Sorna, which I hope they will.

It's just kind of confusing. They need to do more than just say "oh yeah there's another island btw." Imagine explaining the situation to a general audience member who saw JP on video a few times and maybe TLW once over 10 years ago.

Person: Wait, so there's another island with dinosaurs?
You: Yep. Isla Sorna.
Person: Why?
You: Well, for Jurassic Park they bred the dinosaurs and raised them on Sorna. Then they shipped the dinosaurs over to Nublar.
Person: ... Okay. But only for the first park's dinosaurs?
You: Yes. Not Jurassic World's dinosaurs.
Person: And Isla Sorna isn't volcanic?
You: No, it isn't. That's why the Jurassic World dinosaurs need to be shipped over there.
Person: Ok.

The movie needs to do this in script form. It just seems tricky.
