I can't wait for this. Jurassic World was a great movie, and the best JP movie since the original. But it lacked that touch of 'magic' that the first film had, imho.
Maybe it's impossible to re-create that because the movie is so well known now and it came out when CGI in movies was very new. Everyone knows what a CGI version of T. Rex looks like now. No one had seen one before that film.
When I saw that first scene with the humongous Brachiosaurus eating from the tops of the tree, I was about 8 at the time and that was one of the most profound experiences I've had watching a movie at the cinema, or anywhere else for that matter. You know that feeling I'm talking about, right? When you're so immersed in what you're watching that you forget you're watching a film and believe what you're seeing is real.
I'm not sure that another movie could have that affect on me again.
Although I have had a similar experience, a couple of times in Virtual reality because it's still new and fresh and I have not been jaded by those experiences just yet.
