Some theories are amazingly popular, despite having zero evidence that they could possibly be true. This is the case with the insistence that Owen, Chris Pratt's velociraptor-handler character in Jurassic World, is actually a kid from the first Jurassic Park movie, all grown up. The basis for this theory? Almost nothing. In a scene from the first film, a young boy dismisses raptors as unscary. Dr. Grant reacts by wielding a giant, razor-sharp raptor claw and lecturing the kid on respecting a species too extinct to stand up for itself. That boy, apparently, learned to respect raptors so much that he grew up to work with them. We know this because, in World, Owen mentions that he and the raptors have a "relationship based on respect."
And… that's it! Apparently, only one person in the universe can use the word "respect," so if two say it, clearly they're the same person. Never mind that the movie 100 percent doesn't back this theory up—the Internet still insists on embracing it, because coincidences and/or slight callbacks to earlier films couldn't possibly exist. No, everything must be connected, everything must have an explanation, and everything must be uncovered by nameless computer addicts pretending they know more about movies than the moviemakers.
