Jurassic World, which will be set 22 years after the original Jurassic Park, is set of the same island as the first film, the fictional Dinosaur Theme Park island of Isla Nublar.

According to the story, when Jurassic Park first opened, despite it's troubles, it was a huge success. People came from all over the world to see dinosaurs in the flesh. Now though, dinosaurs have existed for some time, and the crowds are thinning out.

Jurassic World's Star Attraction: The Diabolus Rex!

Chris Pratt, who will play a lead in the movies, is a scientist would works side by side with velociraptors, studying their behavior, what social interaction they have, whether they are lone hunters or pack animals etc. He deals with the animals mainly in pens, where he needs to wear protective equipment - and is careful to always respect the boundaries of the prehistoric animals.

However, the park is not run by scientists, and corporate interests and scientific ones are not always in complete agreement.

In order to ensure audiences do not get tired of Jurassic World, the executives behind the theme park have decided they need a new, star attraction - the infamous Diabolus Rex, or D-Rex, which has been created by mixing the genes of cuttlefish, snakes, Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptors.

The D-Rex, made by man rather than nature, is unpredictable and hard to control, and it may well be the cause of the crisis that is expected to come to Jurassic World.

Chris Pratt vs the D-Rex!?

Early reports which came of of this movie suggested that we could see Chris Pratt's character - due to his work with Velociraptors - actually teaching Dinosaurs to work alongside humans, leading to a dinosaur battle, "good" beasts against "bad".

That has been denying by the movie's director, Colin Trevorrow, who has said that Dinosaurs cannot be divided into good and bad, but rather simply into predators and prey. He stopped short, however, of completely denying that Chris Pratt and the humans of Jurassic World would use their knowledge and familiarity with dinosaurs to battle the out of control D-Rex.

But what do you think will happen in Jurassic World? Could we see dinosaurs pitted against each other? And are you happy about the inclusion of the man-made Diabolus Rex, or would you rather have seen this movie stick to dinosaurs that really once walked the earth?
