The same power struggle is present in both films, but there are more parallels than that. A major point of Jurassic Park is that life is controlled by the chaos theory, that nothing can ever be consistent. In Jurassic Park, a character names Ian Malcolm, drops two drops of water on another character’s hand and it shows that two drops will never go the same way. In Jurassic World blood drops from the Indominus Rex and lands on a soldier’s hand (Jurassic World).

The director is making the point that the Indominus Rex is the physical example of the chaos theory in the film.

For example, it makes the example that corporations are pushing the Jurassic World genetic scientist to create dinosaurs’ fasters so that big corporations can sponsor and make profit off of the new attractions. The continuing pressure from corporations ended up creating a problem because the dinosaurs that were modified inherited many unpredictable behaviors. Back when the original film was released pressure from corporations were never the issue. It was actually the opposite; Jurassic Park was trying to promote itself by wanting corporations to give approval. Another modern issue that Jurassic World touches is the pressure to always outdo the last show. Just like modern-day smart phone
