Production of Jurassic World sequel will kickoff soon. It is revealed the sequel will be “more suspenseful and scary” with a new director on board.
Jurassic World‘s director Colin Trevorrow will not be directing the sequel, but he is still heavily involved. The role will be passed to J.A. Bayona who is best known for directing The Orphanage (2007) and The Impossible (2012).
According to Dark Horizons, Trevorrow says he and Bayona shares the “same priorities” of “going practical whenever possible.”
In the Jurassic World sequel, more animatronics will be used. This refers to the animatronic dinosaurs that are best used when “standing still or moving at the hips or the neck.” Actions more than that, including running, will be created through animation.
In the previous film, the filmmakers were criticized about relying heavily on CGI. Trevorrow addressed the issue by saying it is because of the Indominus Rex’s physicality. The animal was fluid and it moved a lot which “needed to move its arms and legs and neck and tail all at once.”
Trevorrow adds that with Bayona’s horror background, fans can expect the sequel to be “more suspenseful and scary.” He also confessed he wanted Bayona to direct it that is why the “whole thing is built around his skill set.”
Regarding the Jurassic World sequel’s plot, Trevorrow revealed he is not interested in militarizing dinosaurs, according to Collider.com. The idea was introduced in Jurassic World, but the plot actually played differently before rewriting the script.
He says, “One of our first reactions was, ‘No, if anyone’s gonna militarize raptors that’s what the bad guy does, he’s insane.’”
Trevorrow’s involvement in the film this time will focus on producing and co-writing.
Filming will start in February in Hawaii and London. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are confirmed to reprise their roles. Pratt even tweeted he already received the script.
The Jurassic World sequel is set to hit theatres on June 22, 2018.
