As we previously revealed, the untitled Jurassic World sequel (working title: Ancient Futures) is set to return to Hawaii with filming set to start on February 27th, 2017.
It was unclear which islands specifically the film crew will utilise (with both Oahu and Kauai being used in the past) but we have now learned that the production crew will head to the islands in November of this year, to scout locations for the sequel.
Both Jurassic Park and Jurassic World filmed at the Kualoa Ranch on Oahu, so it’s possible the iconic location will see a return, as well as many others.
Considering all four movies have been filmed on the islands they may already have specific locations in mind, with this “scout” being more of a chance to director J.A. Bayona and his team to plan out scenes. However, it could also allow for them to decide where crucial sets will be built – providing any will be.
