A Bug's Life

  • When Dim roars to help Dot scare Thumper away, he uses the same sound effect.
  • When the bird appears, the bugs react to it as if it were like the T-Rex. Also, to the bugs, the bird's song sounds much like a roar. This is further supported by the fact that modern-day birds are the descendants of the dinosaurs.

Toy Story 2

  • While inside Al's Toy Barn, Rex appears in a rearview side mirror (viewed by Mr. Potato Head) as he tries to catch up with the car, parodying a scene from Jurassic Park where a T-Rex appears in a rearview mirror when chasing a crew in a jeep (although for entirely different reasons as the T-Rex in the film was trying to eat the crew in the car, while Rex was attempting to get back in the car).

The Incredibles

  • The island that Syndrome lives on might be based on the Jurassic Park island in the earlier films.

Toy Story 3

  • When Rex appears out of the ground, he roared with the Jurassic Park T-Rex roar.

Toy Story of Terror!

  • In one of the deleted scenes, there is a movie titled Jurassic Water Park.

The Good Dinosaur

  • The climactic battle between Butch the T-Rex and the Velociraptors at the end is re-enacted when confronting the cattle thieves.


  • A Bug's Life, The Incredibles, and The Good Dinosaur are currently the only three Pixar films other than the Toy Story franchise that parody Jurassic Park.
  • Michael Giacchino, who composed many Pixar movies, also composed the fourth Jurassic Park film Jurassic World and its sequel Fallen Kingdom.
  • Chris Pratt, who voiced Barley Lightfoot in Onward plays Owen Grady in the Jurassic World films.
