This Crazy ‘Jurassic World’ Theory Actually Makes A Lot Of Sense

While “Jurassic World” is just making its way into theaters, theories are already taking over the Internet faster than the dinos took over the original park.

Some of the wildest theories include the Barbasol can from the original movie somehow playing a major role. Other fans think the reason the kids are headed to the park is because it’s “Coupon Day.”

Though a lot of them just seem like wishful thinking, life keeps finding a way for one theory in particular:

The theory about the true identity of Chris Pratt’s character, Owen, started gaining a lot of momentum after the trailer came out. Reddit user farceur318 explains:

In the upcoming Jurassic World, Chris Pratt’s character, a velociraptor trainer, is the chubby kid that Grant [Sam Neill] frightens at the beginning of the original film. Grant tells him to “have a little respect” for raptors, and in the trailers for “Jurassic World,” Pratt’s character describes his relationships with the parks raptors as “a relationship based on respect.”

The trailer isn’t the only supporting evidence. Whit Hertford, now 36, is the actor who played the role of the kid, billed as “Volunteer Boy” in the original movie. He and Chris Pratt are only 1 year apart in age (Pratt is 35), so the timing works out pretty well. Plus, released clips from the movie may also hint at some sort of connection.
