The pteranodons in Las Vegas is one scene that was cut but eventually added as the film's post-credits scene prior to the theatrical release.
During filming, and in between takes , Bayona used an iPod to play different types of music on set to inspire the actors, as he had done with his previous films.
Many of Pratt's ideas were used in the film. Discussing Levine's character, Bayona said, "He came with this idea of creating this kind of military man. He just wanted to portray the most hateable character possible.
The film includes several indirect references to U. President Donald Trump , including an idea from Trevorrow where a news ticker says the "U. In Hawaii, scenes where characters are running were filmed with the use of the Edge Arm, a stabilized camera that was attached to a crane, which was mounted to a truck that drove alongside the actors. This specialized camera allowed for scenes to be shot steadily despite the truck being driven over rough terrain. In Hawaii, the Edge Arm was used to film the actors riding in the Gyrosphere as it was hauled on a trailer to simulate its movement.
Bayona, at the suggestion of his film editor, later decided to intercut Blue's surgery scene with footage from the video diaries. It was filmed through the night and involved helicopters, rain machines, and lightning simulators to depict a thunderstorm.
Scenes were also filmed on sets at Hampshire's Hawley Common ,  where the exterior of Lockwood's mansion was built, as well as a mainland loading dock where the dinosaurs are brought.
The ship's interior was constructed by Nicholson and his team as a large set at Pinewood Studios, and after filming, it was rebuilt to depict the large rooftop of the Lockwood Estate. The film crew took plate shots of Cragside and used a computer to combine the shots with footage filmed on set to create the exterior of the Lockwood Estate. No actors were involved in the Cragside shoot. Nicholson previsualized each of the sets he and his team built to ensure they would be large enough for the intended scenes.
He noted, "Someone can tell you a Velociraptor is X-feet long, but until you see it in the space, you can't appreciate what that means in terms of your set and the action that needs to take place within it. The estate set included Eli Mills's office, Dr. Wu's large underground laboratory, an underground dinosaur containment facility, separate bedrooms belonging to Benjamin and Maisie Lockwood, and a large library with dinosaur skeletons and artifacts.
When filming was completed in the Lockwood library, the set was redecorated and converted into the estate's underground garage, where the dinosaur auction takes place.
It was the first such scene to be featured in the film series, and was filmed in a single continuous shot with the use of a dolly track. On May 24, , scenes were shot at Hampshire's Blackbushe Airport , which stood in as an American airfield. Filming in Hawaii was underway as of June 13, ,   and lasted more than 25 days, with locations that included Dillingham Airfield and Pua'ena Point.
Scenes were scheduled to be shot there until the end of the month. Trevorrow had initially considered including the vehicle in a scene in Jurassic World , before settling on the original Jurassic Park visitor center instead. David Vickery and his team at ILM created the volcanic special effects and consulted volcanologists for research.
According to Vickery, the team asked "how a volcano of this type might erupt" and also requested information about "the various stages of lava and pyroclastic flow. We are speeding it up a bit for the sake of our film, but it is definitely all based on real science.
The scene was set in an Isla Nublar bunker as lava begins dripping from the roof. The litter had been soaked in flammable liquid, and was dropped from 12 different nozzles above the set. Unbuilt portions of the park were created by ILM using digital set extensions. Main Street was the largest set built in Hawaii, and required more than three months to complete. The film's dinosaurs were created using a combination of animatronics and computer-generated imagery CGI.
Approximately 52 ILM animators worked on the film. The ILM team also referred to elephants and rhinos to determine how the dinosaurs should move and behave. They feel somehow a little bit more exotic and richer in this movie. The film features more dinosaurs than any previous film in the series. The white Indoraptor was eventually removed from the script as the story was considered detailed enough without it.
The scene would take place onboard the Arcadia , in which Owen and Claire would encounter the Dilophosaurus in a cage. Bayona felt that the scenes onboard the ship were long enough already.
The film features more animatronic dinosaurs than any previous sequel,   and the animatronics used were more technologically advanced than in the earlier films.
There's an extra excitement if they can act in front of something real. In the balance, we ask ourselves if it is economically and artistically more valuable to do it that way, or as a post-production effect. Once we have looked at each particular case, with the director and the VFX supervisor we decide whether—because of the environment or the circumstances—it is the right way to go practically.
Spielberg suggested to Bayona that he not overfill his shots with animatronic dinosaurs, in order to give the impression that the dinosaurs were bigger. Scanlan's team also made puppeteering aids, rod puppets , and several prop dinosaurs, all created by coordinating with Vickery to ensure a consistent result between the practical effects and CGI.
The toys included a spring which gave them the ability to jump. The feature was used to get a genuinely startled reaction from Pratt. Although motion capture was used in the previous film to depict Velociraptor , ILM determined after several tests the technology would not be adequate for depicting dinosaurs in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
They chose instead to use key frame animation done for the previous films. However, some motion capture was done as a form of previsualization to aid Bayona. Jance Rubinchik, animation supervisor for ILM, said the fight was the "trickiest sequence" because of the lack of previsualization. According to Bayona, a Brachiosaurus shown dying in the volcanic eruption is meant to be the same individual that is first seen in the original Jurassic Park.
The Brachiosaurus in the new film was created using the same animations from the film. They worked through the final night to perfect the scene's colors and composition, shortly before the film's release. For advice on veterinary procedures and animatronic movements, the filmmakers sought a veterinary surgeon who had experience with African wildlife.
Jonathan Cranston, a Gloucestershire veterinary surgeon, was recommended for the position because of his experience with wildlife in South Africa. He advised Bayona and the producers on how to choreograph several scenes to accurately depict complex veterinarian procedures that involved the dinosaurs. Cranston also worked closely with Pratt, Howard, Pineda and Smith to teach them how to perform such procedures.
He also advised the puppeteers on creating subtle and authentic animal movements and worked with Bayona on two scenes. Cranston was on set for 12 days, primarily at Pinewood Studios. The musical score was composed by Michael Giacchino. John Williams ' themes from previous Jurassic Park scores were incorporated by Giacchino.
A soundtrack album was released on June 22, , by Back Lot Music. A six-second clip from the film was released on November 22, This was later confirmed to be incorrect. It included miscellaneous information about the group and its effort to save the island's dinosaurs,  as well as a video featuring Howard, Pineda and Smith as their characters. This frustrated Trevorrow, who preferred not to show such scenes before the film's release.
Within 24 hours of its release, the commercial received Licensing partners Mattel , Lego , and Funko created toys based on the film. The film was then released in the United States on June 22, In December , a survey from Fandango indicated that Fallen Kingdom was one of the most anticipated films of The website's critical consensus reads, " Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom adds another set piece-packed entry to the blockbuster franchise, although genuinely thrilling moments are in increasingly short supply.
Variety 's Owen Gleiberman called the film better than the first Jurassic World but wrote " I hope the next one is an all-out ride—but that for the first time since Spielberg's original, it's actually a great one. The audience for this series has proved that it will turn out in mega-droves. In a more critical assessment, Peter Travers of Rolling Stone said " Andrews of The Washington Post said the film had "achieved the impossible: it makes dinosaurs boring.
That it doesn't cash all the checks it tries to write is why it's merely a good movie instead of a great one. Bayona's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom says goodbye to the park for good, not just carrying the de-extincted dinos off the island but freeing itself from the genre trappings of the previous four films. Many reviewers singled out the scene where a lone Brachiosaurus , stranded on Isla Nublar, succumbs to the volcanic fumes while the characters helplessly watch from the departing ship, as "poignant" or "haunting", especially given the species' role in the first movie.
