In a new video interview with IGN, director of the Jurassic World sequel J.A. Bayona discussed the challenges of the upcoming sequel, and shares how his entry into the franchise will be different.
In the interview, Bayona reveals how Colin approached him to direct the sequel based on Bayona’s film The Orphanage, and that Colin’s intention with the sequel is to make it darker and scarier. He also discusses how it’s important that they stay faithful to the legacy, but also bring something new and exciting to the story. Check out the video below:
A few days ago, Colin Trevorrow revealed how the sequel will be a more complex film, exploring the mistreatment of dinosaurs as you see with other animals in the world today.
“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.”
Last week we interviewed Colin Trevorrow about the sequel and he brought on J.A. Bayona towards the end – be sure to check out our interview for that here, along with a number of other interviews from cast and crew members on our interviews section of the Outpost!
