With a heartfelt nod to the deceased Jurassic Park star, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has taken to Twitter to pay respects to Lord Richard Attenborough, who passed away this weekend at the age of 90.
Attenborough is most famously known as playing John Hammond in Jurassic Park and he often talked about how he'd love to return for Jurassic Park 4, if Steven Spielberg ever called him.
Well, now, a part of John Hammond will forever be with us, as a new image from Jurassic World has been revealed. The image features our first look at a bronze statue of the cuddly Jurassic Park founder who loved dinosaurs so much he had to bring them back to life, complete with his cane (featuring the mosquito stuck in amber).
Trevorrow accompanied this beautiful image with the words:
Statues find a way, it would seem...
Lord Attenborough's failing health over the past few years seemingly eliminated the possibility of him having some sort of cameo in Jurassic World, but the statue which will be on display in the park feels like an earnest way of paying tribute to him now.
Do you think Jurassic World should somehow incorporate Hammond's passing into the script?
