Maybe not so leaked...

Yeah, it is a disappointment "world" is not literal (or is it?), but I am watching either way.
I think it's a play on words with Disneyworld, given the new Isla Nublar's amusement park-like atmosphere, but will possibly take on the larger meaning toward the end of the film if the dinosaurs escape the island en masse, which I think will probably happen.

But yeah, I'm looking forward to it. Even at its worst in JP3, it was still friggin' dinosaurs.
I'll watch at least once, either way, but I do hope that the 'World' part is truly realized long before the end of the film. It seems to me that the idea of the long term consequences is the only really great idea that hasn't at all been explored in this franchise so far, and it would be a shame to have waited so long for a fourth movie to have it yet again be explored only in the very (non-comittal) ending of the film, with some cool-looking but ultimately ignored imagery of escaping dinosaurs. All that other stuff, don't play god, be careful what you wish for, life will find a way, who's watching the watchers, etc - been there, done that. It's time for something about whether mankind is capable of sharing the world/no longer being at the top of the food chain.

On the other hand: Mosasaurs are awesome.

That picture has not been confirmed, and some people say it's a fake/photoshop from other sources of the previous movies. Interesting tidbit is that this raptor looks a lot like the old raptors, not the newer versions we saw in JP3. So interesting if it is true. I hope there will be raptors though, I love them.

Re: Jurassic World

The question that is giving everyone sleepless nights, will the raptors have feathers?

Both of these have the same answer.

No feathers. The people making the movie had said they will not be using feathers of any kind, they will not make them scientifically correct because a raptor covered in feathers would look funny.

So because they look old might be because they looked awesome older.

Last thing I heard about the Raptor photo was that the father of the kid that posted it on Twitter was in serious trouble, apparently he brought his son to work and, well... I'm pretty sure it is legit.

It takes place on the same island as the first movie: Isla Nublar. It's not literal, at least according to what I had read about the new film. It is a theme park, so I guess you could base it off of something along the lines of SeaWorld...albeit a bit more extreme.

As far as the leaked raptor photo is concerned, I would agree with Beagleman. In addition, they would not have taken the image off Twitter if it wasn't legit. That just tells me that it is a dinosaur used in the picture. But of course, once something is leaked online, everyone has it and taking it off Twitter doesn't really make a difference. But again, the fact that they did remove it, tells me it's going to be in the movie.

Re: Jurassic World

Judging by the poster, I think it might be like in the novel. Although the 'new' Jurassic Park might not have bred Raptors, the Raptors might be from the first Park who bred in secret in the wild. At the end of the first novel, this was pretty much the case (Although the island-including the nests-was pretty much destroyed in the novel, although the end of the novel hints the Raptors have escaped to the mainland).

Although there's only three Raptors at the end of the movie (There were originally 8 according to Muldoon but the "Clever girl" killed all but two), maybe it's possible one of them laid eggs or something before being killed off by the Rex.

Re: Jurassic World

You would think after the mess of the first movie they would check the island and make sure they killed everything they didn't want. But I'm sure a nest or two could have been missed.

I think they might show up because the scientists clearly have no morals if they are breading new types of dinosaurs. So why not breed a raptor?

Re: Jurassic World

There's actually a deleted scene in TLW (Also included in some broadcast versions) where Ludow says they've pretty much dismantled the island's facilities and killed the Dinosaurs.

Speaking of TLW I wonder if Isla Sorna's fate will be mentioned, or if that's where they get the Dinosaurs for the new park in the first place or something (As Ludow was planning to do in TLW).
