Brief history

The Jurassic Park franchise is a series of films, books and comic books which initially began in 1990 when Universal Studios bought the rights to the novel by Michael Crichton previous to it being published.

The first film in the series (Jurassic Park) was released in 1993, followed by its sequel (The Lost World: Jurassic Park) in 1997 and Jurassic Park III in 2001. The first film ended up winning three Oscars, and various other awards and nominations. The sequel was also based on the book's sequel, The Lost World (1995), however, the third film, which was directed by Joe Johnston, was not based on any of the books.

Guide for collectors

Full-size dinosaurs/movie props which were used in any of the Jurassic Park films are considered to be more valuable than study maquettes used in the films. Also, memorabilia that was used in the first Jurassic Park film (1993) is considered to have a higher value than memorabilia that was used in any of the other Jurassic Park films.

Restoration of a Jurassic Park movie prop is not recommended.
