Chris Pratt Explains His Incredible Jurassic World Prediction In This Brand New Bonus Feature

Chris Pratt wears so many hats. A-list movie star. Guardian of our galaxies. One-time Parks & Rec scene stealer. And… fortune teller? OK, so Pratt didn’t necessarily predict the future, but he once made headlines for pretending that he’d be the star of a Jurassic Park sequel, long before he was cast in the lead for Jurassic World. Here, we’ll let Pratt tell the story, as part of an exclusive clip shared with us by Universal Studios from the Jurassic World bonus features:

Chris Pratt is interviewed by his Jurassic World director, Colin Trevorrow, about the time he recorded a viral video from the Parks & Rec set. The way Pratt tells it, he was making a self-deprecating joke about how he – the co-star on an NBC sitcom – would have to put Steven Spielberg on hold because he’s not able to speak with him about Jurassic Park 4. Of course, not even Pratt could imagine just how big of a star he was about to become. Marvel helped launch Pratt’s star by casting him as Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy. And last summer, Pratt took things to a new level by battling dinosaurs in the first Jurassic sequel in years.

Now Pratt has to do it again, on numerous fronts. James Gunn needs him for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. And even though Colin Trevorrow has moved on to the Star Wars galaxy, where he’ll direct Episode IX, Chris Pratt is expected to return for the announced Jurassic World 2, even though details on that storyline are few and far between.

Jurassic World cast Chris Pratt as Owen, a park ranger and dinosaur wrangler whose unique skill set was called into action when a hybrid dinosaur escaped from its cage and put the theme park in danger. Directed by Colin Trevorrow, the sequel was a monster hit for Universal Studios this summer, banking a staggering $651 million domestically, and $1.6 billion (with a "B") worldwide. It is currently the highest grossing film released this year… though that record probably will only hold until December 18, when a little movie called Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens up.

For now, Jurassic World is available on Digital HD, and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD starting Tuesday, October 20.
