Jurassic World is Going to be a Trilogy

jw3.jpg

To be honest, given the money it's hauled in, we're amazed they haven't already confirmed another ten Jurassic Worlds.

But, with Jurassic World 2 already confirmed, and a weirdly-specific release date of 22 June 2018 pencilled in, we've had the first pseudo-confirmation that it is going to be, at least to start with, a trilogy. Our graphic artists have mocked up a potential poster for it above.

Colin Trevorrow, who directed the wildly successful first movie - currently on box office receipts of nearly $1.7bn, is not going to be filling that role for the second instalment (he's quite busy with a little sci-fi film called Star Wars: Episode IX), but he is writing a draft script, together with Derek Connolly, and in a discussion with the Jurassic Cast Podcast, he's dropped some hints as to the direction of it - and also said that the story arc is set for three stages.

Trevorrow said, ""Honestly, the trilogy is articulated in Jurassic Park, it’s all in there. Jurassic World is all based on Ian Malcolm’s quote, 'you stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you even knew what you had, you patented it, and packaged it, and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you wanna sell it'. That to me is Jurassic World, that’s why I had all the product placement, that’s what it was".

He continued,  "The second one, Jurassic World 2, as we were driving we tried to find what is the foundation? ‘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?’ That’s why it’s exciting that the movie did well, that leaves us a lot of room to run, and it was part of this design, it had a beginning, middle, and end when we wrote the first movie. Now that the movie did well, we get to play that out".

In addition - both excitingly for fans of actual thought and plot, and disappointingly for those of us hoping for dinosaurs in space, he added,  "It will get to be a different kind of film. The audience has given us permission to a certain extent to take this to the next level, and I don’t necessarily mean in scale, I feel very strongly that it’s not about more dinosaurs or bigger and better dinosaurs, it’s about using this as a starting point for a much larger story about our relationship with these animals and about animals in general and the dynamic created by bringing them back to life."

Still, massive dinosaurs in space would be good wouldn't it? Vote for your new direction below and listen to the whole podcast below that.
