The director of Jurassic World 2 has promised that his movie will be dark along the lines of The Empire Strikes Back and Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan.
J A Bayona told EFE said things will also get “scarier” for moviegoers.
“Obviously when you have Chris Pratt, it will also be very funny,” he said. “But it will be darker. It is a second step in a trilogy, and the second step is always dark as in The Empire Strikes Back or the Wrath Of Khan, which are the examples you always get“.
The new movie is being penned by Derek Connelly and Colin Trevorrow, the latter of whom directed Jurassic World.
Trevorrow has said the new movie will be a “parable of the treatment animals receive today: the abuse, medical experimentation, pets, having wild animals in zoos like prisons, the use the military has made of them, animals as weapons“.
Jurassic World 2 is released in the summer of 2018.
