Jurassic World Director Says Sequel Will Take Things To The Next Level
After the T-Rex-sized success of this summer’s Jurassic World, it’s no surprise its director, Colin Trevorrow, is staying on board to co-write (once again with Derek Connolly) and direct the sequel, which Trevorrow says will not be called Jurassic World 2.
But that’s not the only news nugget we’re here to report. On yesterday’s Jurassic Cast Podcast, Trevorrow revealed the sequel (Jurassic Galaxy?) will be inspired by this line spoken by Sam Neill’s Dr. Alan Grant in 1993’s Jurassic Park:
“The world has just changed so radically, and we’re all running to catch up. I don’t want to jump to any conclusions, but look… Dinosaurs and man, two species separated by 65 million years of evolution have just been suddenly thrown back into the mix together. How can we possibly have the slightest idea what to expect?”
Seems pretty vague, but Trevorrow also told Jurassic Cast “the audience has given us kind of permission to take this to the next level. And I don’t mean in scale. I feel very strongly that this is not ‘more dinosaurs’ or ‘bigger dinosaurs’, it’s about using this as a starting point to discover our relationship with these animals and with animals in general, and the dynamic that was created by bringing them back to life.”
I guess that doesn’t make things much clearer, but at least the sequel (which is set to be the second of a trilogy) will reunite Chris Pratt and Brice Dallas Howard. Whether or not we’re still in the park, it’s pretty safe to assume Pratt, Howard, and dinos will run wild June 22, 2018.
