Hey guys! In this video I go over why the baby Triceratops scene was cut from Jurassic Park! Originally, there were plans to have Lex ride the Baby Triceratops like she does in Michael Crichton's novel, however this idea would be scrapped after construction on the animatronic had already begun! Luckily that wouldn't be the end of that particular dinosaur's scenes as you'll no doubt remember it being apart of the new Jurassic World movies! Here I go over everything you need to know about this old Jurassic Park deleted scene! Hope you all enjoy! :D


You need to do a video on the JWFK deleted scenes now they’re on YouTube

I hope they decide to add in a baby Parasaurolophus in the next film.

While it would have been a sweet addition to the Baby Triceratops scene and for just two minutes of interaction, I respect the decision to scrap the scene with the notion that it would have felt a tad too Disney-ish. I think they could have done more with it in The Lost World. Maybe Nick makes eye contact with the confused baby animal and there's a brief moment of Owen interacting with it, to the vocal displeasure of the nearby adult Trike, foreshadowing his willingness to save the Baby T. rex a few scenes later.

The final cut was good enough. Like cutting the scene w/the HUGE dead Stego in JWFK, I'd say they made a good call.

Would have been cute, but unnecessary. Though if they wanted to put it in they could have traded the brachi song scene and it would have worked. However that scene was beautiful and far to valuable honestly. I love that scene... so overall. No real loss save the time they took to make the animal

The Baby Trike is so chunky and I love it. I'm sad it didn't make it, but at least it's in the Lost World

I have wanted to ride a triceratops my whole damn life.

At least we get the whole "little girl riding a baby trike scene" in Jurassic World! We only see it for a brief second and it's rather irrelevant for the plot, but it's still a nice "easter egg".

For JP it just kinda made some sense as the park was fresh and working, came here by coincidence looking for why they did include the baby triceratops in JW fallen kingdom, cause by my knowledge ALL dinosaurs in the park ever since are females and fallen kingdom plays after the island was abandoned for three years, so why was there a baby triceratops following its "mom" ?

Although being in the novel and a very cute scene might I add it's a damn shame that we didn't get it in the final film adaptation of the first movie I mean a 3 hour runtime for the first film would've been good and hey they could've added that baby triceratops some how I mean of course with being shown briefly in the lost world JP and even very little with the fly by with said airplane in JP 3 but of course I'm glad that they brought the little baby triceratops back in of course JW and JWFK with a little wink to JP fans of the gentle giants petting zoo with the children riding the little ceratopsians and even some getting picked up and dropped by pteranodons in JW but it was kinda cool to see one have a little stand off against blue the velociraptor in the JWFK blue VR oculus thing in the first part of the 2 part story to tie in with a little prequel for JWFK. Anyway great stuff as always Klayton very amazing work and the information looking up that you're doing for your research behind the scenes is spot on keep up the good hard work man two big thumbs up. 💪 😊👍👍

It was cut due to pacing issues. Storyboards, behind the scenes footage, still photos, and original artwork show this scene. Such a shame they cut this scene out. Thanks for the video!

I think cutting the scene was a good idea. As mentioned, it's inclusion would have hurt the flow of the film. Plus, I don't see it working with how they switched the kid's ages around. Movie!Lex seems too old to be doing petting zoo stuff like riding a baby animal.
