With the success “Jurassic World” has reached since it made its way to theaters earlier this year, it is a no brainer that a sequel needs to be made. Although it has been confirmed that an untitled follow-up for the adventure movie is slated for a 2018 release, it will be quite a while before fans get some official information regarding the movie.
Fortunately, Colin Trevorrow has been generous enough in sharing what the conceptualizing team of the movie is thinking in terms of the possibilities in the untitled sequel initially dubbed “Jurassic World 2.”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Trevorrow revealed what his team is pondering on what could be in the movie. The 39-year-old director will be producing and co-writing the sequel after directing its predecessor.
In “Jurassic World,” Dr. Henry Wu (B.D. Wong) was seen sneaking off a few dinosaur embryos into Costa Rica. If the movie picks up where it left off, a huge chunk of the sequel may be set in the South American country. Furthermore, recent speculations have been swirling around saying that these embryos will be developed into weaponized dinosaurs which will ultimately lead to a battle between good and bad dinosaurs.
There will also be a reversal of roles as Owen (Chris Pratt) will take on the passenger seat and give the wheel to Clare (Bryce Dallas Howard) “It’s her [Clare] story that mirrors this changing world. Owen has s*** to deal with. The two of them opened Pandora’s Box in Jurassic World and each of them are responsible for different elements of it in different ways,” Trevorrow said.
Furthermore, in a recent Twitter post, Trevorrow also took a fan’s suggestion of bringing back the iconic match of T-Rex and the infamous Spinosaurus. While it has not been confirmed that it will happen in the next film, fans are delighted that it was given some consideration.
The director, writer and producer is also mining some ideas from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” by hinting that if the film can bring in the old cast and mix them with the new, so does “Jurassic World.” This solidifies rumors that Lauren Dern who played Dr. Ellie Sattler in the franchise’s 1993 offering, “Jurassic Park,” and Sam Neil who played Dr. Alan Grant in the 1993 and 2001 movies will be joining the new movie. Trevorrow is slated to helm the ninth movie of “Star Wars” which will come out in 2019.
The untitled sequel for “Jurassic World” is penciled in for a June 22, 2018 release,
