The news keeps roaring in, and this time it answers a big question: will the islands return? The answer is yes. ‘Ancient Futures’ will begin production in Hawaii on February 27th, 2017! We have exclusively learned (and confirmed) this in conjunction with Reel News Hawaii, so be sure to give them some love as well.
It’s unclear yet if this is the filming start date, or when production will gear up with crew building sets in preparation of filming. Considering the alleged start date in other locales, it seems plausible to be when filming will begin. We’ll be sure to keep our eyes and ears open in hopes of clarifying this.
The primary part of production will take place in London, likely at Pinewood Studios – though it seems other locales will be used as well. Speaking to Wired Magazine Colin Trevorrow stated:
“[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island, that’ll get old real fast. […] What if there are 15 different entities around the world who can make a dinosaur?”
With that in mind, it seems safe to assume the Hawaii shoot will be more abbreviated than usual, with the majority of the film taking place elsewhere.
Be sure to stay tuned. Updates keep stomping in, and as we learn more, we’ll share more! If you have news you want us to report, be sure to let us know! Otherwise, sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think about the return of Hawaii!
