Jurassic World Joins TikTok With Footage From Unique Jurassic Park
Jurassic World is joining TikTok with a video that features footage from the original and Richard Attenborough’s iconic “Welcome to Jurassic Park” line.
Before the upcoming release of Jurassic World: Dominion, the iconic franchise joined the modern world with a TikTok account. The Jurassic series began in 1993 with Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, a popcorn blockbuster epic that used state-of-the-art CGI technology to bring dinosaurs to life and gobble the box office and climb to # 1 year-round. Of course, the film spawned two big budget sequels until it dormant in 2001. The series was revived as Jurassic World in 2015, followed by Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in 2018. The third Jurassic World was one of the first blockbuster films to resume production after pandemic delays, to resume in July 2020 and wrap up in November.
Jurassic World: Dominion, the sixth Jurassic film overall, will hit theaters on June 10, 2022. The film is expected to follow up on the Fallen Kingdom finale, which showed that dinosaurs and humans are now on the mainland USA. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard take their roles from the previous films, along with original Jurassic Park actors Laura Dern as Dr. Ellie Sattler, Sam Neill as Dr. Alan Grant, Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm and BD Wong as Dr Henry Wu.
As of today, Jurassic World is officially on TikTok. They announced their debut on the video sharing platform with a clip from the original film. As Richard Attenborough strikes “Welcome to Jurassic Park” with his inimitable voice, the iconic gates open and the jeep pulls up in front of … a giant floating TikTok logo.

The platform is still largely populated by individuals, including some stars like Drew Barrymore, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jack Black. When brands want to promote a new movie, they usually try to start a meme and have users spread it, like the popular Godzilla vs. Kong Roar Challenge earlier this year. Jurassic World, however, is jumping on a slowly growing trend with movie brands joining the widespread video-sharing service as a separate entity.
It is currently unknown what type of material Jurassic World will choose to share with the TikTok audience in general. So far, after about an hour online at the time of writing, the page has only been followed by fewer than 1,000 TikTok users. It will likely take a few posts for the site to establish its identity as a TikTok presence and start gaining an audience. However, Jurassic Park fans may want to jump on the bandwagon early if that means new footage from the movie is coming soon.
