Jurassic World Animatronic Apatosaurus

The Jurassic World Animatronic Apatosaurus is one of the most unique props created for the movie, being that it is the only physical animatronic to appear throughout the entire movie. All the other dinosaurs and even elements of the Mainstreet set like the Innovation Center were primarily created via the use of computer graphics. The animatronic is used during the scene that Owen and Claire find the dying Apatosaur in Gyrosphere Valley while the rest of the animal’s body is created via CGI. The animatronic featured was found to have a moving, blink eye as well as a moving mouth to simulate an organic response to being touched and felt by the actors. The animatronic was created by Legacy Effects (Formerly Stan Winston Studios) for the production and was brought on location for filming in Hawaii for Jurassic World.
