Feathered Dinosaurs in Future Jurassic Park Movies Discussions/Debates
Posted Nov-11-2016 11:53 AM
What are your thoughts on feathered dinosaurs in the Jurassic Park movies? I would personally love to see them. Not to mention there are many fan artworks depicting them. Here are some:
And if you do support the idea of feathered dinosaurs in a Jurassic Park movie, which dinosaurs do you think should have feathers? I'd want to see feathered Raptors (duh), a feathered Tyrannosaurus rex, and maybe even a feathered Spinosaurus! What do you guys think? Comment below!

Wouldn't really care one way or another. Sure it would be scientifically accurate(maybe? IDK about dinosaurs really) but that has never been the thing with Jurassic Park.
Since they haven't done it yet, they'll probably never change the iconic dinos like the raptors and t. rex, but others might see a change.

Seems very unlikely, feathered spino? Spinosaurus Aegyptiacus was quadrupedal and had an aquatic lifestyle feeding on fish such as onchopristis in real life, and it Jurassic park 3, it was a way too over estimated theropod.(Do i really need to go any further, spino fanboys?) not feathered, period. And with that HUGE mistake they made with spino and non-feathered inaccurate "movie themed monsters" as quoted from Alan Grant himself, DINOSAURS IN JURASSIC WORLD 2 WILL NOT BE FEATHERED, as disappointing as it sounds, i'm sad too ;(.

Honestly, i've never been a fan of the whole "All dinosaurs had feathers because they are more closely related to birds" bit. I know, there has been evidence that some did, but these were all small dinosaurs, like the true velociraptor. A feathered T-Rex? Ehhhh... now you're going overboard, at least IMO.
However, featherless dinosaurs have already served as a template to the Jurassic Park franchise. So, adding feathers to the dinosaurs in future JP movies would be nonsensical if they were applied to the already introduced dinosaurs, and it shouldn't be changed just to satisfy some viewers.
The franchise itself didn't gain its popularity due to all of the scientific accuracies, did it? I mean come on, the velociraptors aren't even velociraptors, yes an overused statement, but nonetheless still a valid point.

If dinosaurs are cloned using amphibian (reptilian) DNA, then obviously they will not have feathers. By the way, that's why the Raptors turned out to be the wrong anatomy. And if you use the DNA of Crocodiles (the lateral branch of the Dinosaurs) or Birds (descendants of the Dinosaurs) when cloning, the dinosaurs in the Park will have right anatomy, and, most likely, feathers.
