Here's How You Can Watch Every Movie In The Jurassic Park Series

Whether you have kids who love dinosaurs, or you yourself are an overgrown kid who loves dinosaurs, there's no more thrilling film series than the "Jurassic Park" movies. They've been exciting audiences for over a quarter-century, beginning in 1993 with Steven Spielberg's original classic. That flick featured Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum as scientists whose tour of the titular park — with its living exhibits of actual dinosaurs, cloned from DNA harvested from mosquitoes embedded in fossilized amber — goes slightly awry when an employee bent on corporate espionage shuts down the park's security system, resulting in a terrifying night of running and screaming for everyone involved.

Spielberg and Goldblum returned for 1997's "The Lost World: Jurassic Park," which saw Goldblum's Dr. Ian Malcolm coaxed back to a small island separate from the main park, which is in the process of being turned into a preserve where dinosaurs are free to roam and breed. The original "Jurassic Park" trilogy then wound up with 2001's "Jurassic Park III" (directed by future "Captain America: The First Avenger" helmer Joe Johnston), which saw Neill's Dr. Alan Grant return to assist a couple whose son has gone missing on the main island.

The series was revived in 2015 with "Jurassic World," in which a new park literally built on top of the decaying remnants of the first one is terrorized by an Indominus Rex, a terrifying and cunning hybrid beast. It's up to velociraptor trainer Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) to help corral the monster with the help of his trained dinos. The story continued in 2018 with "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom," which saw Grady and his love interest Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) attempting to break up a ring of black market dino-sellers.

A third film in the new series, "Jurassic World: Dominion," is scheduled for release in 2021 — and it'll get the whole band back together, with Neill and Dern reprising their roles from the first series (along with Goldblum, who briefly appeared in "Fallen Kingdom"). 

In the meantime, to whet your appetite, you can run through every film of the entire "Jurassic" series ... but you'll have to round 'em all up first.

Updated on August 4, 2021: This update reflects changes to the streaming availability of the original "Jurassic Park" trilogy.

The Jurassic movies remain hard to find

The "Jurassic" films aren't the easiest to track down in the streaming-verse. The first two films — "Jurassic Park" and "Jurassic Park 2" are only available to rent or buy on all the usual VOD platforms. "Jurassic Park 3" is the only film from the original trilogy that you can stream with subscription, and that ones on Amazon Prime Video. If you only hold a Netflix subscription, than you'll have to settle for the animated TV series "Camp Cretaceous." For "Jurassic World" and "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom," you'll have to jump over to Hulu, where the most recent dino thriller is now streaming free with subscription.

If you like the pay-to-play model, all five films are available to rent for $3.99 from Amazon, Apple, YouTube, Google Play, and Vudu, so get out that plastic. Not a bad price tag for a day full of roaring, stomping, people-eating dino-action — just try not to think too hard about why, following the events of the first movie, nobody arrived at the conclusion that filling a theme park with terrifying dinosaurs was a terrible idea.
