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.
Though a lot of them just seem like wishful thinking, life keeps finding a way for one theory in particular:
Chris Pratt’s “Jurassic World” character is the little kid Dr. Grant scares in the original “Jurassic Park.”

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.
