‘Jurassic World’ Sequel Will Call Back Original Trilogy

It’s impossible to capture the awe and wonder that we all felt when Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park hit theaters. It was the first of its kind and utilized new technology to bring the dinosaurs to lift. Each and every sequel became less and less impressive, leading up to last year’s Jurassic World, which injected the fun back into the franchise. Sure, it wasn’t a great film overall, but I’ll be damned if I didn’t have a blast watching it. And at this point, that’s all I wanted from a sequel.

J. A. Bayona is taking on the sequel to Jurassic World, and it sounds as if his head is in the same place as mine. After making a series of bleak and dramatic features, he’s looking forward to creating something that his a more enjoyable emotional curve. In a new interview promoting his A Monster Calls, Bayona explains this, while also revealing that there are plans to call back the original trilogy.

After doing THE IMPOSSIBLE and A MONSTER CALLS I said, ‘I want to have fun now.’ So, let’s do a dinosaur film with Spielberg. It’s great, but at the same time it’s massive and way bigger than [the last] one.

I think what is tricky about doing the fifth movie of a franchise is how will you bring in new stuff and still pay tribute to what we all know and the legacy of the film. So, it’s the balance between the new stuff and the old stuff. I think Colin did a great job in the first one finding the balance between what people are expecting and what people are being again. I was kind of surprised when he pitched me the story because it leads the story to a place that we’ve never seen before and it brings some of the most important elements from the other films and makes something with them. I thought that was very interesting. It’s the second chapter of a trilogy so it gets the story to a place that wants you leaving more and more.

The sequel has Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard reprising their roles, with Rafe Spall and Toby Jones joining the cast. The script was penned by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly.

The park opens again on June 22, 2018.

      Jurassic World was awful. It has no replay value. It’s an empty hollow film with no heart. I wished all the characters got eaten by that Indominus Rex.

    I have mixed feelings with JP… It’s a franchise I truly love, and it always feels so good to see dinosaurs back on the screen but I also feel they’re taking this classic into a whole other level similar to Planet of the apes which I’m not interested in…. I loved JW but I’m scared of its sequels, the military thing is so stupid and childish…

    sigh… another homage film. Another hope to recapture something that was. Jurassic World couldnt polish the originals shoes. This trend is all too familiar now. Im 31 and I feel so blessed to grow up with some of the greatest films and experience them as they were. Now all we get is recycled reboots, sequels, remakes and prequels… with MAYBE an occasional good film.

      I’m sick of this nostalgia homage remake bullshit, not just in films but on TV too. I refuse to support or pay money for these cash grab remakes and sequels.
