In an exclusive interview with Empire magazine, Jurassic World director, Colin Trevorrow has confirmed that Jurassic World will be filmed with the intention of planning for sequels! Not that this is necessarily as "big" of news as we were expecting, as ever since this film was announced we reported that Universal was aiming to kick-start a new trilogy. But regardless, the confirmation from Trevorrow himself is exciting. In addition to the reveal, Colin also talks briefly about a few of the characters we'll be seeing in the new film. Below are a couple excerpts:
“We definitely talked about [sequels] a lot,” the director/co-writer revealed. “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.”
With those story arcs already in place, Trevorrow hinted at the characters likely to participate in them across further films. One of them is cast newbie and Untouchable star Omar Sy. “He’s essentially Chris Pratt’s best friend,” he said of the Sy character. “They work together and have some pretty cool action scenes together. I wanted to create a relationship there that could be memorable and potentially carry on to future films.”
Also, Trevorrow confirms that Jurassic World will feature animatronic Dinosaurs, just like in the previous Jurassic Park films and Legacy Effects will be responsible for bringing the Dinosaurs to life:
While it’s well-known that Jurassic World revisits the Isla Nublar 22 years after the events depicted in Jurassic Park – the film’s shoot is currently underway in Hawaii, before heading to New Orleans – the specifics of what exactly has come to pass, dino-wise, in the intervening period are remaining under wraps. Trevorrow, though, was happy to confirm that he’ll be using animatronic dinosaurs and elaborated on the movie's broader set-up.
“It’s about alpha dominance and the fact that humans have been the alpha species for a very long time", he explained, "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?”
