Fans were understandably super excited with the release of Jurassic World after fans had to wait a long time to see a movie in the series. With the sequel coming up, there are plenty of reasons to be excited and recently, director Colin Trevorrow said that Jurassic World 2 will be even better than the original one.
His latest comments came during an interview with Screen Rant as he was promoting The Book of Henry. During the interview, he said that the sequel is set to change everything in the series. He said, “He is a different director but it’s interesting, we have so many similar instincts as far as suspense and family and fears of childhood and the perspective that we want to tell the story from that even though I wrote the film, it’s J.A.’s movie from start to finish. He’s just, the film looks beautiful and is exciting. We’re using more animatronics because I learned so much about how they can be utilized, so I built scenes that would allow us to use them, because they can’t run, these are the lessons. Belén Atienza has been great as well, and it’s just been something that we’ve all delved in and tried to make something deeper and richer and ideally better. I’m going to be the hype man for this movie, I think it’s going to be a better movie, sorry.”
Understandably, he didn’t reveal a lot of details of the movie although he mentioned that he wrote the movie especially for J.A. Bayona. Fans of the franchise are expecting a darker movie compared to the first one and it seems that he did a fine job with it. He explained, “That was by far the most rewarding creative experience of my life, just making a movie for another director who I respect. And I built it for him, so it’s different than maybe even the movie I would have written for myself. [It’s] a Spanish horror/thriller with dinosaurs in it. And I loved doing it.”
Given that we have to wait more than a year to watch the movie, more details are likely to come out in the coming months. Although it is pretty early to be excited about a movie without a glimpse at the synopsis even, the movie is clearly one of the most anticipated movies of next year and is set to become a major box office hit when it hits theater on June 22, 2018.
