Jurassic World’s 7 New Dinosaur Species In Dominion’s Prologue Explained


Jurassic World Dominion isn’t just relying on dinosaurs fans have seen before. The sequel is introducing 7 new dino species that really existed.

Warning: Minor SPOILERS for Jurassic World: Dominion.

Upcoming sequel Jurassic World Dominion will introduce seven new dinosaur species never seen in the franchise before. Directed by Colin Trevorrow, Dominion will not only conclude the Jurassic world trilogy but it will also end the six-film saga that began with Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic park back in 1993. And now a brand new Prologue for Jurassic World Dominion including 5 minutes of footage has been released, after initially appearing as an IMAX preview with Fast & Furious 9.

Set four years after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Dominion sees humanity forced to co-exist with dinosaurs that have proliferated since they were brought to the mainland and set free into the wild. Dominion will also bring back Jurassic park legacy heroes Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), who will meet Jurassic world‘s lead couple, Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard). Of course, the franchise’s fan-favorite dinosaurs will also return, such as the T-Rex, Blue the Velociraptor, and the Mosasaurus. But alongside the classic character dinosaurs, Jurassic World Dominion is also introducing a host of new and previously unseen dinosaurs, both in the main story and in Dominion ‘s prologue, which is set 65 million years ago in the Cretaceous Era.

The Jurassic world movies introduced the concept of hybrid dinosaurs such as the Indominus Rex, the Indoraptor, and the Scorpios Rex, which were the villains of the first two Jurassic world movies and of Netflix’s Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. However, Jurassic World Dominion will have no hybrid creatures; instead, the film will focus on the numerous species of dinosaurs that really existed (and do exist in the movie’s universe). Along with seeing familiar tell us, Jurassic World Dominion will spotlight all-new prehistoric beasts, including a couple that were only relatively recently discovered by real-world paleontologists. Here are all seven of the new dinosaurs revealed in the Jurassic World Dominion Prologue and what we know about them.

Jurassic World Dominion’s 7 New Dinosaur Species Explained


Seen trudging through and beside the watering hole in the Jurassic World Dominion Prologue, the Dreadnoughtus is a massive new sauropod similar to the Brachiosaurus. The bones of the Dreadnoughtus were only discovered in real life in 2005 and the massive herbivore makes its Jurassic world debut in Dominion ‘s prologue.


Jurassic World Dominion Quetzalcoatlus (1)

The flying Pteranodons were first introduced in Jurassic park iii and returned in the first two Jurassic world movies, memorably assisting in the grizzly death of Zara, but they can’t stand up to the bigger Quetzalcoatlus. The winged beast is an even bigger and scarier winged dinosaur that the Pteranodons even treat as an alpha.


Jurassic World Dominion Oviraptor (1)

Somewhat frustratingly shrouded in shadow, the Oviraptor is a feathered dinosaur that’s similar to the Velociraptor but smaller in size. It’s one of the first dinosaurs with feathers in the Jurassic franchise, which is more scientifically accurate and is shown in the Prologue raiding a larger dinosaur’s nest to steal an egg.

Jurassic World Dominion Nasutoceratops (1)

The horned Nasutoceratops is similar to the Triceratops and the Sinoteratops but this huge dinosaur has shorter horns extending from below the bony armored plate in its head. The Prologue footage shows a family of the creatures and an infant moving as a herd on the edge of the water hole.

Moors Intrepidus

Moros Intrepidus in Jurassic World Dominion

Seen picking at the teeth of the new Jurassic World Dominion apex predator, the tiny Moros intrepidus is a feathered dinosaur that resembles a very small T-Rex. Discovered only two years ago in real life, Moros intrepidus is the fastest case of a new, real-life dino discovery being included in a Jurassic movie.


Jurassic World Dominion Iguanadon (1)

The Iguanadon is another large herbivore that debuts in Jurassic World: Dominion and is sighted briefly in the film’s Cretaceous prologue before the reveal of the new apex predator’s battle opponent, the feathered T-Rex.


Jurassic World Dominion Gigantosaurus (2)

And finally, the star of the show, before the skip ahead to the modern-day attack on the drive-in cinema, Jurassic World: Dominion’s Prologue also introduces a huge new apex predator in the Gigantosaurus. The huge carnivore battles the T-Rex in the Cretaceous period, taking the iconic dino down in an almost comically quick time. However, the Gigantosaurus also appears in the present-day story of Jurassic World: Dominion so it may be a threat that Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, Ian Malcolm, Owen Grady, and Claire Dearing will have to face.
