Get some clues on the Jurassic World sequel

‘Jurassic World’ 2 could be about competing dino-makers.

After the success of Jurassic World earlier this year, director Colin Trevorrow has become one of the most in demand directors in Hollywood. But now that (spoiler alert) the scary hybrid dinosaur Indominus rex has been terminated, what’s Owen (Chris Pratt, back for the sequel) and the gang (including Bryce Dallas Howard) to do?Like a prehistoric mosquito filled with dinosaur blood and encased in amber, Jurassic Park contains all the essential DNA of its modern-day offspring, Jurassic World.

Colin Trevorrow, the director and co-writer of the summer blockbuster Jurassic World, shared the inspiration for the film’s sequel in a recent podcast. 39-year-old Trevorrow is currently co-writing (along with Derek Connolly) and producing the sequel to Jurassic World. Before the hit dino-flick, he had only done one full length feature, Safety Not Guaranteed, but nows he’s on track to direct a main Star Wars feature and write the script for the upcoming Jurassic World 2.

And just as director Colin Trevorrow’s blockbuster reboot drew inspiration from Park in ways big and small, so it seems will the Jurassic World sequel. A quotation by Jeff Goldblum’s character, Ian Malcolm, from the 1993 film Jurassic Park is where Trevorrow’s inspiration came from. “Honestly, the trilogy is articulated in Jurassic Park, it’s all in there,” Trevorrow revealed (via EW). “Jurassic World is all based on Ian Malcolm’s quote [sic]. It’s, ‘You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you knew what you had, you patented it, you packaged it, slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you want to sell it.’ That to me is Jurassic World.

We don’t know about you, but if there’s one thing we love it’s a director attempting to defend product placement in the style of a child trying to lie his way out of a scolding. Alan Grant in the 1993 original for their sequel. “As Trevorrow paraphrased, ‘Dinosaurs and man, separated by 65 million years of evolution, have been thrown back into the mix together. How can we know what to expect?’” He went on to add that with the first in the series doing so well, he has a “lot of room to run” with the script.

The ending of JW doesn’t exactly suggest an obvious sequel-setup, or at least not one that fits within the boundaries of what we’ve seen from the franchise so far. We were thinking one possible direction was the angle of dinos being weaponised, with the tech available to the highest bidder for whatever nefarious plan they have in place. Wu actually fears competing dino creation in Jurassic World, saying: “We’re not always going to be the only ones who can make a dinosaur.” “I think that’s an interesting idea that even if we don’t explore fully in this film, there is room for this universe to expand,” said Trevorrow. “I shouldn’t use the word universe, because people will think we’re making a ‘Jurassic World’ universe — we’re not.” One other notable moment is when he adds that “Claire is the one who evolves the most over the trilogy, it’s her story that mirrors this changing world.” It has already been confirmed that Bryce Dallas Howard’s character, Claire Dearing, and Chris Pratt’s, Owen Grady, will be returning for the movie. I feel like the audience has given us permission, to a certain extent, to take this to the next level.” He continued, “I don’t necessarily mean in scale.

Now that the movie did well, we get to play that out.” Trevorrow was keen to stress how the scale of the sequel will not be any bigger than the first Jurassic World. It’s about using this as a starting point for a much larger story about our relationship with these animals, and with animals in general, and the dynamic created by bringing them back to life.” It’s hard enough to get a direct sequel right anyway, but as soon as Colin says: ” [the plot] had a beginning, middle, and end when we wrote the first movie. Case and point: “And when you look back at nuclear power and how that started, the first instinct was to weaponise it and later we found it could be used for energy.” So, we’re gonna get weaponised dinosaurs? Of course, we’re being hyperbolic for comedic effect, but all the signs point towards a Transformers: Age of Extinction deal, and God forbid anything like that should happen again.

Remember that uptight businesswoman, who was also an Olympic standard runner given the fact that she outpaced a T-Rex in high heels, who was really really annoying in the first film?
