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 is in full-bore pre-production!

Earlier today we learned that the Jurassic World sequel – working title: Ancient Futures – will begin production on February 27th, 2017 in Hawaii. While we are unsure of the plot, the production team is hard at work prepping the film for production, as confirmed by producer Frank Marshall who recently spoke with Collider’s Steve Weintraub:

“We’re in pre-production. In fact I just got back from London meeting with Juan Antonio and the production designer, we’re designing, he’s doing storyboards. We’re in full-boar pre-production to start shooting sometime early next Spring.”

“As a director Bayona has his input, but Colin and Derek are writing the script. So there have been numerous meetings, and we have the template for the movie. Of course he’s putting in his own ideas and taking ownership of it, but it’s pretty much the original story they came up with.”

 “We set the bar pretty high. For me, it’s always about story. As long as the action sequences move the story forward, that’s what’s important. I think we’re just having to look and see how we can involve the characters in the story with whatever dinosaurs we have in the action sequences. It’s a challenge, but it’s a healthy challenge.”

We now know that the sequel will feature the islands in some way or another, and it’s good to hear that pre-production is in full swing. Be sure to let us know in the comments section below what you’d like to see in the movie!

  1. About characters , I would like to review Tim and Lex and Alan Grant and Ian Malcom , all together on the island again.

  2. Am so glad the islands will feature in some aspect. I would really like some loose ends tied like seeing ‘Jurassic World’ being cleared of assets and where these animals end up. For me then the story can move forward and Off Island.

  3. Dr. Ian Malcolm to return and get him involved would be great for good reason for it, seeing Chaos Theory in full intent and also don’t need to be in full movie but would be good for at least half the movie depending on how the movie is displayed and my brother wants to see Jared Padalecki

  4. I’m guessing that the film starts on Isla Nublar during somekind of cleanup operation and then switches to the mainland where the bulk of the plot takes place. Unless of course the rumors are true that they are recycling the old JP4 trip and doing the opening scene where the guy goes to retrieve embryos

  5. Looking forward to following every little bit of information via this site next year!

    This time however I will stop doing that by the time trailers, cip etc are coming out. With JW I pretty much saw the entire story ruined by marketing.

  6. I want to see it build from the original in which Dennis lost embryos on his way to the boat. Bring back a tie from the first story. Then end it, the franchise can’t go on forever. Involve all the characters for one last movie of dinosaurs tragic end.

  7. I would love to see an opening to a Jurassic film feature the evacuation of Isla Sorna during hurricane Clarissa. It could show the oncoming storm, high winds, light rain, long grass blowing, the different dinosaurs being released. Maybe even a scene that shows some people going to release the spinosaurus but at the last minute are prevented from doing so and it could show it draped in shadow, its green eyes glowing as the workers yell “leave it, we have to evacuate now!” And then it could fade to Isla Sorna, present day as the area transforms into this overgrown (realistically so, thank you Jurassic World) jungle where the human impact of ingen is but a relic of the past. When suddenly a team of ingen mercy sweep through as they’re hunting something, the original hybrid, the spinosaurus. It sounds cheesy but you should read some Hollywood scripts. Plus Bayona could make Hawaii look mysterious and adventurous again.

  8. I like Bayona as director, the only thing that get me a little nervous is the fact that Colin and Derek wrote the script. IMO, Colin and Derek did an awful job with JW’s script. Anyway, I hope Antonio will bring back that adventure/suspense feeling from the first Jurassic movie.

  9. So far, so good. And to think that it took them 14 long years between JPIII and JW, it’s amazing to see the franchise in full gear again after just one year the previous intallment was in the theaters. I believe we’ll now have more and more news on the sequel as the year comes to a close: the pictures of props being taken to Hawaii, snapshots of the buildings, confirmations on the cast. I’m excited.
