For you movie buffs/the dinosaurs are back

Jurrassic World is going to be filmed on Kauai starting this April. For all of you who have taken the movie tour or flown over other Jurrassic Park film locations, I thought this would be of interest to you.

That's so awesome. Hoping they might still be there towards end of May so we can see it or some of it anyways.

Very cool! We hiked to the Jurassic Park "gates" (driving that crazy dirt road first). Although we had a lot of laughs that day, I don't recommend you drive that road unless you have a high clearance, 4WD! We also saw some of the film locations on Oahu at Kualoa Ranch - gorgeous!

That is good news. awhile back we ran into some of the previous movie cast members and were able to talk story with them. Apparently they really work long days and seldom have time to get out and see the island away from the set or locations.

Also, usually the movie company will put an add in the GIN for extras, so there is the opportunity to have anyone who is interested possibly get a face shot while being eaten by one of those vicious REX monsters. Personally, in days of yore, I had the opportunity to be around film companies, TV, etc., and have no desire whatsoever, but we certainly will be looking forward to viewing the movie. Funny, how the facination with dinosaurs seems to continue with us humanoids, even us very old dudes and dudettes.

Thanks Joan, for the link, apparently Kauai has some of the best jungle settings and the movie producers like the garden island for their locations. Hopefully that trend will continue.

Awesome. Thanks for sharing. We're going at the end of May, so they will be done by then. But lol -- The whole reason we are going to Kauai is that we liked the scenery in the Jurassic Park films, and as you can probably guess, we're going to do one of the movie tours.
