I could be forgetting this, but I never saw Zara's death get told to Claire. I get that Claire's nephews were partially traumatized by seeing her die like that, but even so if they didn't tell her what happened. One would think that somebody would have told her in the movie. I think that's one of the mistakes that was made in the movie.

Your thoughts.

It probably happened offscreen, what with Zara's role being reduced to "that girl who dies" and thus not being important enough to the plot for the writers to bother addressing her death after it happens. I agree, that was a mistake. Trivializing a character to the point of their whole role being a cool death, especially if you've gone to the trouble to give them a name and a story, just doesn't sit right with me.

That and she was the first female character that people knew who got killed in the Jurassic Park movie series. Even more so considering how she was Claire's best friend and she saved her nephew's from the pterosaurs. Not to mention redeeming herself from being a bit uptight to them in the process.

It most likely happened off-screen, but yeah, Colin himself aknowledged he didn't do the right thing with those moments in a tweet

I imagine in between when the group gets in the car and then go to the raptor pen. Thats probably when she found out about it.

In the novelization of JW, Claire asks about Zara. Don't know why Colin didn't add some lines in the movie.

Yeah in the novelization of JW, Wu also hears about Hoskins death and semi-reacts like he's sad.

Yeah, Zara's death itself was awesome but her being seemingly forgotten was a mistake. Remember the JP 4: Nedry's Revenge fanmade poster? I think someone should make a JW 2: Zara's Revenge and the tagline should be "She's pissed about being forgotten!". Razz

One of the film's biggest flaws for me. Was shocked when I saw the film for the first time that no one ever mentioned what had happened.
