After $1.6 billion in box office takings, a sequel to this summer’s mega-smash Jurassic World was always going to be a sure thing. Fans of Rexy, raptor Blue and her crew are in luck because the wheels are in motion for a follow-up.
Details might be scant at the moments, but consider this article (which we’ll update as new info drops) your one-stop shop for cast, plot rumours and potential spoilers on Jurassic World 2…
The storyline will see dinosaurs getting weaponized
With Jurassic World seeing John Hammond’s dream of a dinosaur theme park in tatters (again), it’s difficult to figure out where things will head next. Our prediction: the sequel will be Jurassic War.
Vincent D’Onofrio’s character Vic Hoskins pushed hard to turn raptors into weapons for war, and going by Colin Trevorrow’s recent quotes it looks like this thread is something that’ll be explored in the follow-up.
“[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island. That’ll get old real fast,” he explained.
Colin Trevorrow is coming back (sort of)
Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is now hot property following the runaway success of the film. He’s onboard to direct Star Wars Episode 9, so his place on the Jurassic World 2 director’s chair still might be up for grabs.
One thing we know for sure: Trevorrow and his Jurassic World co-writer Derek Connolly will be cooking up the story again. Steven Spielberg will also be serving as a guiding hand behind the scenes as executive producer.
“I feel like the idea that this isn’t always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment. And when you look back at nuclear power and how that started, the first instinct was to weaponise it and later on we found it could be used for energy.”
Trevorrow added that dino tech will be going “open source”. “It’s almost like InGen is Mac, but what if PC gets their hands on it? What if there are 15 different entities around the world who can make a dinosaur?”
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be back reprising their roles as dino trainer Owen Grady and former park chief Claire Dearing.
Having cemented himself as squad alpha by the close of Jurassic World, we’re expecting the raptors to be involved in some form. Let’s just say there better be Blue!
It’s got some serious Marvel competition in 2018
