When it came to watching Jurassic World I thought it would just be another one of those Hollywood remakes that failed on its first film. We all have the terrible memories of Jurassic park 3 *shudder* and the wondrous memories of Jurassic Park. Well Jurassic world I found to be rather enjoyable, not as awe inspiring as Jurassic Park, but far better than I thought it would be.
So much so, I am actually interested how the story will develop over time. What is surprising is what we don’t know about the upcoming sequel (basically all of it).
We know that the main idea was to turn dinosaurs into weapons and that the genomes of many dinosaurs were stolen. I’m no expert but I think this is likely to shape the main story of the sequel.
What we do know is that Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will both reprise their roles in the sequel as Owen and Claire.
Fortunately we also know that Bryce isn’t shy to talk about the film.
Howard has offered us some nice teases about her character in the sequel: “Claire is a different person now. The person she is at the end of [Jurassic World] is not the person she was in the beginning. Her armor of sorts was that white, pristine outfit with heels in a very corporate environment and stuff, and the chick at the end… totally different. So yeah… it better not be heels.”
The heels in question were of course the famous, or rather infamous, heels that Bryce wore throughout the entire Jurassic World film. Many stated that it highly impractical and unrealistic.
If the character has lost those shoes then it must mean we are set for a more rugged and down to earth character. Pratt’s character was very much like this in the first film, and it’s also likely he may also be more rugged in the second, particularly after losing his raptor friends #teamblue. This may be a small hint from Howard and filled with wild speculation but I believe that the unconventional duo will likely become the Tarzan and Jane of the Jurassic World.
Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connoly are once again writing the script for the Jurassic World sequel. Trevorrow will not be directing the sequel as he is set to direct another inevitable blockbuster Star Wars Episode 9.
All that Trevorrow hinted about the upcoming Jurassic World seques was a famous quote from Sam Neil’s Alan Grant, who appeared in Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park 3; “Dinosaurs and man, separated by 65 million years of evolution have been thrown back into the mix together. How can we know what to expect?”
The director of the film is not yet known, however it is believed The Impossible director Juan Antonio Bayona may take the mantle. Frank Marshall and Steven Spielberg will produce the film.
The untitled Jurassic World sequel is set for release on 8th June 2018.
