Hey gang, want some news that completely, totally not a surprise at all? It appears that Jurassic World, the fourth film the Jurassic Park franchise and the first film to focus on all-new characters in an attempt to re-start (not quite reboot) the series, might be the first of many new Jurassic Park films. Gasp! So Jurassic World might lead to sequels! Can you believe it?
In an interview with Empire, director Colin Trevorrow noted that he would like direct Jurassic World sequels, stating that “we definitely talked about [sequels] a lot. We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story.” So there’s that, which isn’t a surprise, as any major studio action film now must have a prerequisite arc that requires at least three films before finding a resolution.
Trevorrow also noted that animatronic dinosaurs would be featured in the film, not just CG. He also had this to say about the film’s plot:
It’s about alpha dominance and the fact that humans have been the alpha species for a very long time. And so now we’ve brought back another that happened to be the alpha species during its time, and we have to co-exist, so what is that relationship?
Elsewhere, over at EW, three new pictures from the production were released. They tell us absolutely nothing about the film, except that Bryce Dallas Howard’s in it, it’s set in a tropical area, and there’s a dinosaur out there who really dislikes construction trucks.
What do you think of the Jurassic World news?
