The Original Jurassic Park Trilogy Is Now Available On Netflix

The Original Jurassic Park Trilogy Is Now Available On Netflix

With Easter just around the corner, Netflix has announced the perfect way to avoid spending any extra time with your extended family.

The original Jurassic Park trilogy - Jurassic Park, The Lost World and Jurassic Park 3 - has finally been added to its catalogue of classic films.

Netflix confirmed the news on Twitter, writing: "Our scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should. But they did. They added the original Jurassic Park trilogy to Netflix."

I know what you're thinking, why wasn't it always there? Well, that's a question for another day. The good news is that it's here now and unsurprisingly, fans of the saga have been quick to share their utter joy at the news.

Commenting on the post, one person wrote: "Brilliant stuff, perfect for Easter time off, definitely putting on for the next generation of dinosaur lovers."

A second fan said: "Hell yes. I know what I'm doing today."

Another excited user then put: "Ffiinnnaalllyay!!!!!!"

Now, of course, the second and third instalments of the trilogy are not quite so beloved as the first, so the original will always be number one, both numerically and metaphorically.

One of the many highlights of the 1993 classic is a particular scene which tends to stick in people's minds more than any other.

I am, of course, talking about the one where Dr Ian Malcolm - Jeff Goldblum - is resting up with a poorly leg with his shirt entirely unbuttoned for seemingly no reason. You know, the scene that's provided meme gold ever since memes became a thing.

Because it's such a baffling set-up, it's become a classic moment in cinematic history. But why did it happen? Well, apparently it was all Goldblum's doing, which makes it even better.

During the 25th anniversary celebration of Jurassic Park's theatrical debut, Goldblum was asked how the whole thing came about - only for him to reveal that his iconic shirtless scene in Jurassic Park was completely unscripted.

And we have American film and TV director Jordan Vogt-Robert to thank for bringing it to our attention, when he tweeted: "I asked Jeff Goldbum during #JP25 what he remembers about shooting his iconic & smoldering shirtless scene. He told me it WAS NOT scripted.

"The AD was on stage and confirmed Goldblum made the decision to unbutton his shirt and everyone just went with it. What an absolute legend."
