When I got home from seeing Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, I excitedly wrote up an article about the film’s final moments and what they seemed to promise about Jurassic World 3, which is being directed by Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World). I had noted that Fallen Kingdom makes Jurassic World 3 one of the most exciting sequels ever promised, as this year’s film ends with several dinosaurs being set free into our world. I was envisioning a dinosaurs vs. humans war movie not unlike the Dinosaurs Attack! trading cards. Alas, it’s not happening.
Speaking with Jurassic Outpost, Trevorrow just tempered those expectations a little bit.
“I just have no idea what would motivate dinosaurs to terrorize a city,” Trevorrow told the site. “They can’t organize. Right now we’ve got lethal predators in wild areas surrounding cities all over the world. They don’t go pack hunting for humans in urban areas. The world I get excited about is the one where it’s possible that a dinosaur might run out in front of your car on a foggy backroad, or invade your campground looking for food. A world where dinosaur interaction is unlikely but possible—the same way we watch out for bears or sharks.”
He added, “We hunt animals, we traffic them, we herd them, we breed them, we invade their territory and pay the price, but we don’t go to war with them. If that was the case, we’d have lost that war a long time ago.”
Emily Carmichael is writing with Trevorrow. JW 3 will be unleashed on June 11, 2021.
