(Major spoilers follow.)

We learn in “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” that the girl Maisie Lockwood is a clone.

Further, is she a human-dinosaur hybrid clone?

It sounds wacky, but there are many reasons for this possibility.

First, Colin Trevorrow, the director of the next “Jurassic World,” told Entertainment Weekly:

"If I could contextualize each film, I would say ‘Jurassic World’ was an action adventure, ‘Fallen Kingdom’ is kind of a horror suspense film, and ‘Jurassic World 3’ will be a science thriller in the same way that ‘Jurassic Park’ was."

Though she looks human, a theory is that Maisie (Isabella Sermon) could develop the dinosaur side of her after puberty. Her body hasn’t started that yet.

It is more than well established in the film that she is cloned just as the dinosaurs are.

Then there are the actual happenings in the film.

Maisie is introduced as acting like a dinosaur, to music that has always previously been used exclusively for dinosaurs.

The Indoraptor is this carnivore who, like all carnivores in the “Jurassic Park” and “Jurassic World” films, is always looking to tear apart flesh. And he literally did that not long before he encounters Maisie Lockwood. Which is interesting in of itself, because it seems as though the Indoraptor seeks her out. And even then, he doesn’t attack her. It actually appears that the opposite was going to occur; that he was going to try to connect with her. Also, he literally reaches out for her. The Indoraptor is a creation just as Maisie is.

Maisie has an unusual affinity for dinosaurs. As in, quite unusual. She speaks up for them. She weeps at their pain. Screenwriters Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow make sure to have Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) ask her if she likes dinosaurs, to which she affirmatively replies “yes.” Then, she lets them all free from captivity, even though that meant that at least the carnivores will all but assuredly be terrorizing folks.

There appears to be eye symbolism. The camera lens focuses many times on dinosaurs’ eyes, and you wonder why until a focus is put on Maisie’s eye to end the film.

As Den of Geek’s Rosie Fletcher wrote, “The camera holds on this frame for so long that I totally expected a second dino-style eyelid to flash across her eye. It didn’t happen, but the implication that her DNA might not be entirely human was certainly teased.”

She is treated like an animal. It’s wrong that Eli Mills (Rafe Spall) does this, but Mills, of course, knows more than we do about Maisie’s makeup and characteristics. In his twisted way of thinking, he may be considering the dinosaur part of her.

It’s also at least worth noting that Owen and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) become her caretakers and their past is as caretakers of dinosaurs only.

As Fletcher added, some of Maisie’s DNA being dinosaur “is less of a leap than it sounds. A very early draft of what turned into ‘Jurassic World’ featured human-dino hybrids, although these were less 'adorable little girl with intriguing eyes' and more 'ferocious Minotaur'. Or Manosaur if you like.”

For sure, the next “Jurassic World” film will have a storyline about dinosaurs being out in, well, the world. But there will certainly be a second main arc, and one that speaks to the idea of genetic engineering and new possibilities for dinosaurs, as have been themes of the trilogy so far, are expressed through the idea of Maisie being part dinosaur. If they don’t go that way, there may have been a lot of suggestions in the script of this film that will have gone nowhere.
