List of characters
Dr. Alan Grant (Lawrence Bayne)-An adventurer and paleontologist. He loves children and adventure.
John Hammond (Gary Krawford)-A multimillionaire and the owner of Jurassic Park.
Ian Malcolm (Norm Spencer)-A mathematician specialising in "Chaos Theory".
Ellie Kemper (Camilla Scott)-A scientist and dinosaur wrangler.
Sonali Banerjee (Tara Strong)-One of two girls among the group of teenagers. She is originally from Lucknow, India and is interested in the natural world, as well as having an interest in pop culture and music.
C.J. Waters (Toby Proctor)-A streetwise teen from Dallas, Texas. Although he is an expert at urban survival-he is never seen without his cellphone or Gameboy-he is a novice when it comes to the natural world and is a herpetophobe (someone who is scared of reptiles). Despite this, he is an invaluable member of the team.
Eddie Trang (Vince Corazza)-A nerdy but goodhearted teen from New York City. He is of Vietnamese descent and is somewhat uptight. His mother and father are loving, albeit somewhat strict and overbearing and expecting a lot out of their son (they appear to fit the stereotype of the Asian-American tiger parents).
Anish and Lakshmi Banerjee (Don Francks and Elizabeth Hanna, respectively)-Sonali's father and grandmother. It's unknown about Anish's wife, but he is either divorced or widowed. Lakshmi is a tough but gentle woman, and like her granddaughter, is interested in the natural world.
Dan Waters (Corey Burton)-C.J.'s father. He is a loving father, but is a no-nonsense authoritarian when the occasion calls for it. C.J.'s mother is never seen, but it is presumed that Dan is widowed or his wife left him.
Peter and Diana Christopolous (Billy West and Iona Morris, respectively)-Maria's parents. Peter hails from Corfu, Greece and is skilled at cooking. Diana is of mixed African (specifically Kenyan) and Native American (specifically Potawatomi) descent.
