Confirmed: ‘Jurassic World’ A Sequel To ‘Jurassic Park’

Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World has regularly been called a “reboot” during casting and pre-production. But that’s not really the case. The new “trick” to getting around the stigma of the words “reboot” and “remake” is to make it “sort of” a prequel or a sequel. Such the case with Jurassic World, a soon-to-be sequel to Steven Spielberg’s masterpiece Jurassic Park.

Colin Trevorrow is directing the film, and is also very active on Twitter, which is where a fan asked, “Mr. Trevorrow, everytime I read something, it says JW is a reboot. Please tell us that its not a reboot?! I’m going bonkers!

Trevorrow responded with a bold proclamation: “Reboot is a strong word. This is a new sci-fi terror adventure set 22 years after the horrific events of Jurassic Park.

It’s been rumored that Jurassic World, now opening in theaters June 12 2015, will take place during an open and fully functional Jurassic Park, presumably called “Jurassic World”.

Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, and Nick Robinson are all said to be starring.

    Much better than having a remake!

    You cannot reboot or remake JP. It is just too awesome. however, I want to add that he used sci-fi terror! Does that mean this is not going to be pg-13?

      Of course it’ll be PG13. There’s no way this will be an R rated movie, they’ll want teens and kids in the audience. However that DOES NOT mean it cannot be a good movie. The first was spectacularly good and that was PG13. The Dark Knight showed extreme violence and that was PG13. It’s all in the presentation. I look forward to seeing what they can do with this :) I’m more interested in seeing dinosaurs rampaging than seeing Raptors tearing entrails out of a human to be honest, I don’t need it watered down, but I also remember we’ve seen our fair share of gore in the Jurassic park movies in certain moments with severed limbs in certain scenes too :)
