It’s always fun waking up to news, and with the Jurassic World sequel’s production offices now based in London, there’s a stronger chance that I’ll actually catch the news as it’s shared.
News on the sequel has been quiet with only some casting information dripping out, but now director J.A. Bayona has shared his first photo for the sequel – which shows some scratched/dirty Jurassic World worker hardhats!
The image is captioned: “Getting ready for the journey.” and the image itself indicates that the production team are finalizing the props for the film, which begins shooting next month.
The hardhats are not from Jurassic Park but we know from reference images that they are the same as the ones that the Paddock Supervisors wear, mostly seen around the Indominus Rex paddock.
The difference in the photo Bayona shared is that they have the full colour logo instead of the stencil logo. The full colour logo is seen on the white hardhat in Jurassic World that Zach and Gray find in the jungle. It is also found on the Masrani Global website.
Our friends at Reel News Hawaii have also weighed in, suggesting that the hats could also be the orange Jurassic World construction hats that were used while the park was built!
What are your thoughts? How do you think these hats tie into the story? Let us know in the comments section below, and be sure to give our story speculation article a read!
