Deleted Scenes (6:08): Sadly this is one giant reel, and you cannot click between each.
Chris & Colin Take on the World (8:57): Pratt and Trevorrow spend time asking each other a variety of questions, share their memories about Jurassic Park, discuss creating suspense in a film like this, and a variety of other topics.
Welcome to Jurassic World (29:52): An overreaching, well done piece about several aspects of the film. We learn about the cast/crew, the film's themes, shooting the film, designing the world, using animatronic dinosaur props, etc.
Dinosaurs Roam Once Again (16:29): This feature breaks down the importance of CGI working within the human world. It discusses the importance of the actors in selling the digital illusions, and how that technology is changing the way directors shoot their films.
Jurassic World: All-Access Pass (10:11): Pratt and Trevorrow return to look at several key points of the film, as well as how some of them were crafted.
Innovation Center Tour with Chris Pratt (2:01): A featurette tour of the set, which include some tips-of-the-hat to previous films in the series.
Jurassic's Closest Shaves - Presented by Barbasol (3:00): Serving as nothing more than a commercial, this is a montage featuring some of the most dangerous moments from the series.
Our evaluation copy arrived as 3D/2D/DVD/Digital HD combo pack. The slipcase is very attractive. At the time of this post, packaging options for the film were available, including a Walmart lunch pail, a Target tin with additional features, and a collector's set with two dinosaurs and the tin.
The Bottom Line - 4/5

Universal's gigantic dinosaur moneymaker arrives at home just in time to bore us.
Review by Matt CummingsIf you had come to me in December of 2014 with news that Jurassic World would be (up to this point) the largest moneymaker of 2015, I would have sicked my rapacious cats on you. Better than Age of Ultron? Furious 7? And what about Mad Max: Fury Road? While all better films, World somehow entered the zietgiest, eventually taking in an astonishing $651.7m domestically and shattering long-held records across the board. With its release onto Blu-ray this week, there's still little reasoning behind such an impressive performance, even with an amazing audio and video transfer. The Movie - 3.5/5
