Why is Jurassic World so Important? Many moons ago – at least that’s how it feels. Wow has it really been 25 years since the original Jurassic Park was released? Dang, I’m getting old fast! Why is Jurassic World so important when apparently it makes me feel old enough to have roamed with the original dinosaurs?

I remember watching the first Jurassic Park movie and I was in awe.
It was amazing. I wanted to go to Jurassic Park. That sounds crazy considering people were chased, eaten, and wounded.
And my favorite line from the second movie sums that up:
And yet, I still want to visit Jurassic World.
It’s crazy but this is one movie franchise that has me enthralled like a little girl. I sit on the edge of my seat just waiting for the next big dino to come roaring by.
I’ve watched all these movies from the first Jurassic Park all the way through to the latest Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Today I have finally seen the latest installment in what I call the greatest movie franchise in movie making history!
Why is Jurassic World so important? This is a love and passion that I share with my daughters. It isn’t just another movie for us – it is a family love affair. Together we watch these movies repeatedly. We have them memorized and often randomly speak movie quotes.
Jurassic World is important because when my daughters were little I taught them how to add and subtract using herbivores and carnivores. My oldest daughter could pronounce the names of the dinosaurs when she was just 3 years old. I know adults who can’t do that.

I could never go to see a movie like this without my girls. It is a special bond that we share.
When my daughter was just four years old I took her to see Jurassic Park 3. It was so exciting; we couldn’t wait!
Most of my friends were mortified. They couldn’t believe that I would take a 4-yo to see such a violent movie – she loved it and still does.
I had no idea at the time that I would bond with my daughters over dinosaurs. It is the best and most exciting thing when we see a dino ride at an amusement park or a dinosaur display at a museum. At one point my daughter wanted to be an archeologist. Times change
But our bond never will.
Why is Jurassic World so important? It will always be a memory that I share with my girls that will never be erased. Even when I am gone they will see dinosaur movies with their children and say things like “remember when mom took us to see Jurassic World?”
Making memories like this is priceless. I’m as giddy as a child going to Disney World today. You know that feeling you get down deep in your gut? The one that says, “I’m about to do something really exciting.” That is how I feel right now as I get ready to go.
