Jurassic World erects giant John Hammond statue in honor of Richard Attenborough

Director and actor Richard Attenborough passed away at the age of 90 just a few days ago, and already the Jurassic World team has erected a giant statue in his honor. The statue is very reminiscent of the Walt Disney statues you see inside Disneyland. Attenborough has directed movies like Gandhi and Chaplin, but his role as the venture capitalist John Hammond made him a star.

Here’s the official Jurassic World twitter paying its respects.

Actor Sam Neill, who played Dr. Alan Grant, had parting words for Attenborough.

Will the statue be in the actual film? I’m not sure, but it’s a nice nod to the man.

Jurassic World will be in theaters on June 12, 2015.
