i would take care of a LOT of things to settle the score between both types of fans
first off, i'd like to state that I acknowledge that some dinosaurs, if not all, had feathers of some sort, so i draw certain dinosaurs with feathers and others without to express that i am fair to both sides. that being said, i have my reasons for why i would probably change some things about Jurassic Park, for the sake of humanity.
Now to understand why Jurassic Park is the way it is, you have to know what kind of world we lived in back in 1993; up til then the world had only seen poorly done dinosaur films, nowhere near as accurate as you would wish for, and very terrible acting, altogether they were just awful at portraying what dinosaurs were really like. When Jurassic Park came around, there was finally the right technology to make people almost feel as if they were actually filming real dinosaurs, so for the sake of moviemaking, they had to step up their game with the designs as well. Can you imagine if they went with the 1930's T rex design for a full blown CGI model, stomping around Isla Nublar? yeah, awful.
So now that you understand what was before Jurassic Park, you can kinda imagine how amazed people were once the bar was set 100 feet higher, no one could believe they were looking at creatures they never imagined possible. Hell it was even the first time the public started to learn what the hell a Velociraptor was; T-Rex had been a household name for almost a hundred years by the time, but thanks to Jurassic Park, even non-dino lovers know what a Velociraptor is. And Spielberg knew that if people were gonna love it, the movie had to be done right, maybe not scientifically, but visually, cus the audience was still learning about dinosaurs. That's my guess as to why they decided to go with featherless raptors, cus people would have immediately flipped out about feathered dinosaurs and the film would have gotten terrible reviews for "trying to make birds look terrifying when they obviously werent'" ... that's what they would say, not me.
Anyway, you all know they kept their designs over 10 years in making the films, and during that time, people slowly started to learn about raptors and other dinosaurs having feathers, so that's why im assuming people hate JP3 so much. Scaly fans say it was awful cus it wasnt scary enough and they looked fake, Feathered fans say that it was terrible cus they added no feather effort and for little character development. And now we have JP4 on its way, and there's word that the dinosaurs will have no feathers, understandably for traditional purposes, but also it gives people the wrong idea about dinosaurs.
SO. I believe that enough time will pass that there will be a need for a remake, like most good movie fandoms that need to stay alive for generations to come, like Star Wars, Marvel and DC heroes, Planet of the Apes, Muppets, etc. I have big plans on working for Universal Studios one day, and along with turning my OC's into the leads of feature length films, i also have had hopes of one day recreating the Jurassic Park story. For starters, I'll have to make a promise to myself to finally get around to reading the books by Michael Crighton, so that i can get a sense of what he intended the world to see with his stories. Next, keeping with tradition as well as moving forward scientifically, there will have to be some design changes to the dinosaurs. Now i know there's gonna be a lot of heat from fans who pay to see scaly dinosaurs and fans who crave accurate feathered dinosaurs, but i have a solution for the realm of Jurassic Park. Remember how they fixed the gene sequence to make it all possible? In the film they used the DNA of a toad to fill the gaps in the gene sequence, which (explained in the first film) is what allowed the raptors to "find a way" to breed in an environment unable to reproduce. What i notice is that the ability to jump sexes is only available from the African Toad mentioned in the film, and not from any bird i know (research one that does and I'll draw you something) and that also implies that every dinosaur of Jurassic Park is cloned from the DNA found in the mosquito amber AS WELL as mutated from the toad DNA, meaning that Jurassic Park is not a world full of reincarnated dinosaurs ... it's a world full of genetically engineered mutations of extinct creatures.
The hints were all over the place, and we didnt notice it. Jurassic Park dinosaurs are not meant to be actual representations of dinosaurs that existed, they are all genetic mutations born from the DNA of real creatures and the DNA of a modern creature, which i believe gives them all certain traits that when put together, make for something extraordinary that the world has never seen before. EVEN THE TOYS FROM THE CHAOS EFFECT WERE AN EXAMPLE OF THIS! For one, i see the raptors as still covered in feathers, but due to mutation in the toad DNA, they might possess a gene that gives them a strange coating, or some alternate reason as to why they dont match up to paleontologist's standards. Maybe they wouldnt be fully feathered as some of you would hope, but that's only because they are mutations, and there's no fossil record that states what a mutated dinosaur would look like.
So as mentioned before, the dinosaurs would require a makeover. Raptors may be partially plumed, Dilophosaurus may develop a regurgitation tactic and quite possibly a frill, Tyrannosaurus may be covered in featherless quill nobs from losing their adolescent feathers, and Spinosaurus may be more suited to water habitats but also some other unique unexpected features as well. Of course, to make it all work, one would have to research as much as they could about each dinosaur, and then research certain traits of amphibians and reptiles that are unique to the world. That would make it real enough for the people to feel like they're looking at new dinosaurs, but to understand that they should not be taken so accurately, for cinematic purposes.
Fear not though, for the sequels would have better plans. Now i kinda imagine the first two REBOOT films would have a similar story to JP and TLW, as well as more homage to the novels themselves, but with bad reviews of the 3rd film, and no basis from a 3rd novel, that gives on freedom to create a new original story. I kinda would expect that someone would get tired of genetic mutations not matching up the real dinosaurs, so what if in the 3rd one some rival company decided to fill the gene sequence gaps with the DNA of a bird instead? perhaps that would enable the dinosaurs to look more like their avian counterparts, and possibly restoring them to the look they were meant to have. And for drama purposes, there would be lots of scandals, action, fighting, bloodshed, and other stuff for this supposed "Avian Jurassic Park" that would eventually point to it being the world's answer to finally getting the safe dinosaur zoo that we've been hoping for.
So to sum up what i just typed up...
JP1 (Reboot) - Park full of mutant non-dinos, everyone's gotta escape
JP2 (Reboot) - Return and try to fix things, mutant dinosaurs pose danger to the world
JP3 (Reboot) - New realistic dinosaurs are made, safely present it to the world and save the world from the mutant dinosaurs.
And here's to an optimistic look at Jurassic World, hopefully if this goes well, then maybe i wont have to change everything and it'll all be ok. Either way, i've been dying for a JP4 so win win for me
That is all
