Velociraptor (Film Universe)
There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Jurassic World 2 to be a more complex film, exploring the mistreatment of dinosaurs

‘Jurassic World 2’ will be a scarier movie, that much we know. But the darker tones will apparently go beyond the on-screen roars, digging deeper into the concepts of morality. Speaking to ‘El Mundo’ at the Stiges Film Festival in Spain, Colin Trevorrow has shared more details about the upcoming sequel. [The original source El Mundo is in Spanish, and some translations come courtesy of TIME]

It’s hard for us to imagine growing up not knowing Jurassic Park, but there is a whole new generation who possibly never saw it.” said Colin Trevorrow “We had to reintroduce the franchise for them with Jurassic World. It was a movie with universal ideas that could appeal to everyone. James Cameron understands how to do that better than anyone: how to make a film appeal to a 15 year old in China, or a child in Florida.”

Colin then elaborated on how the sequel will evolve into a darker, more complex animal: “The dinosaurs will be a parable of the treatment animals receive today: the abuse, medical experimentation, pets, having wild animals in zoos like prisons, the use the military has made of them, animals as weapons. The second part will be a very different, more complex movie that will explore new paths. For that reason, it was clear that it needed to be Bayona who would direct it, in order to have it grow and evolve with his very personal vision.”


The concepts of animal abuse were also explored in ‘The Lost World: Jurassic Park’, notably with InGen capturing numerous animals in less than humane ways. It will certainly be interesting to see how this is further explored in the upcoming sequel, which is part of a mapped out trilogy. Colin Trevorrow recently joined our Podcast, and revealed that ‘the end’ of the trilogy was already decided while writing the first Jurassic World – so it’s safe to assume these concepts will evolve beyond those showcased in the aforementioned Jurassic Park sequel.

Be sure to listen to our recent Colin Trevorrow interview if you haven’t already! He shares many details about the upcoming sequel, including confirming a heavier use of animatronics and revealing that the story will not focus on militarized dinosaurs! The link above includes a direct MP3 of the podcast, and a transcribed summary of the key information. If you’re more of a YouTube person, we also have you covered:

It sounds like we’re in for a wild ride with the upcoming Jurassic World sequel, and I personally cannot wait to learn more. As always, stay tuned for the latest news, and sound off in the comments below!

[Note: other translations of the sourced article make mention of Jack Horner. We believe that to be a transcribing error on ‘El Mundos’ part, typing ‘Jota’ (a Spanish variation of Jack) instead of J.A. We were in the process of working on a proper translation, but TIME beat us to it, corroborating our suspicions.]

  1. Aloha, Will there be many opportunities for extra work on Oahu again?! hoping you are coming to Hawaii!!!!Any info regarding casting/jobs.

    thank you mahalo,
    Julia Getty

  2. I like where this is headed, especially the part of it being darker, scarier. I just hope the script is well tied up so as not to make it a shallow movie, since they seem to be planning on covering lots of grounds concerning our relationship with these animals in only one movie: zoos, medicine, pets, military.

    But I’m not too concerned about this yet. I pretty much like everything Bayona has done so far (I went wild with The Orphanage, to begin with) and I’m counting the days for the release of his newest film, A Monster Calls, which will be released here in Brazil in two weeks. All this to say that I trust Bayona will deliver a solid, enjoyable and darker movie. What’s more, I like the idea of them covering both the islands (since it’s been confirmed they’ll be returning to Hawaii) and the mainland.

    I can wait 600 hundred more days patiently. I just don’t understand why they’re withholding the film’s title that hard!!! God, I’m dying to know that already!

  3. They just need to release the darn title so people can stop calling it “Jurassic World 2” (seriously, people need to stop calling it that period. They didn’t call JP3 “The Lost World 2” did they?)

    They should not be using the excuse “well if we told you the title it might spoil things”. If the title of the movie contains spoles, YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG!

    1. Thank you!!!! Exactly! I’m so tired of people calling the fifth (FIFTH!!!!) Film in the series Jurassic World 2. I don’t understand how everyone thinks Jurassic World is some separate franchise. Jurassic World was so clearly a sequel. This is like calling a fifth Alien film “Alien Resurrection 2”.
