For Jurassic World Dominion, Colin Trevorrow had a life size animatronic head of the film's Giganotosaurus made, built by John Nolan Studio. Paired with a CGI body created by VFX company ILM, they brought the Cretaceous' Apex Predator to life for the third and final Jurassic World chapter. Below are a number of behind-the-scenes set photos from Jurassic World Dominion showing the Giganotosaurus prop head in action:

ILM senior visual effects supervisor David Vickery spoke about the push for more practical effects in Dominion over its prequel Fallen Kimgdom:

I think our instincts were good on Fallen Kingdom, the previous film, to use animatronics and physical dinosaurs as much as we could. But I don’t think we exploited it enough, and I think that there were a number of scenes in Fallen Kingdom that were written specifically because Colin Trevorrow felt like animatronics would work in that context. What we wanted to try and do here on Dominion was break that mold a little bit, and use them as much as we could, but also make sure that we didn’t replace them. That was the key thing, that we could keep them in the final shots.

So, John and I spent a long time trying to make sure that we were as in sync as possible with creature design development, the rigs, the way they moved, the way we puppeteered them, so that we didn’t replace them in post-production, but that we could extend and enhance them. That was the difference here.

I love how the giganotosaurus is still distinct looking compared to the T. rex
