There’s no denying that last year’s Jurassic World was a box-office and critical success, driven largely by a wonderful cast and fun, edge-of-your seat story-line. It comes to no surprise then that a follow up to the movie was immediately announced, even without a concrete script and story.
The prehistoric hype, eventually fizzled, but in April 2016, a director was finally confirmed in JA Bayona and talks about the dinosaur movie follow-up erupted once more. Bayona took fan excitement to another level, announcing that the current installment of Jurassic World will be a trilogy.
“It’s very interesting,” shared Bayona with media. “The whole Jurassic World is a trilogy that Colin Trevorrow has envisioned. We’re writing the second chapter, and it’s very interesting where he’s leading the story. I grew up watching Steven Spielberg movies and I love those movies and the legacy, so it’s a question of being truthful to the legacy and at the same time, bringing new stuff that people will appreciate. We are still six months ahead of shooting, and so far, so good. It’s very exciting right now.”
According to reports, fans should also expect more action and less dialogue.
“They have an idea for the next two movies actually,” Universal Pictures chief Donna Langley said in a dialogue with Hollywood Reporter. “Hopefully they involve lots of dinosaur fights and little of children talking.”
What can we expect from Jurassic World 2?
This may also mean that dinosaur fans will get to see more of the dinosaur tandem between the iconic tyrannosaurus rex and the friendly, man-eating velociraptor, Blue. As most people (who have seen the movie) will remember, Blue seemingly followed the path of the T-Rex at the end of the first Jurassic World movie, hinting of a team-up worthy of Dinosaucers.
It will also be great to see what happens with the dinosaur eggs Dr. Wu steals, since it could mean that he’s already making a copy of the park in China or something.
Otherwise, it will be great to see Chris Pratt as the raptor training Owen. Hopefully Dallas Bryce Howard ditches the heels this time, lest she be eaten by a really big prehistoric reptile.
Jurassic World 2 will be hatching in theaters June 22, 2018.
