To absolutely no-one’s surprise, Jurassic World is set to be a trilogy

Hold the phone! Jurassic World set to be a trilogy?!

Well, no-one saw that coming. Cough.

We’ve known for a while that The Orphanage’s director, Juan Antonio Bayona, was set to direct the sequel to last year’s successful dino-romp/sequel.

Recently the director was asked how the prep for the movie – his first big studio outing – was going and he dropped some interesting news, revealling that it was to be part two of a three-part tale: “It’s very interesting. The whole ‘Jurassic World’ is a trilogy that Colin Trevorrow has envisioned. We’re writing the second chapter, and it’s very interesting where he’s leading the story. I grew up watching Steven Spielberg movies and I love those movies and the legacy, so it’s a question of being truthful to the legacy and at the same time, bringing new stuff that people will appreciate. We are still six months ahead of shooting, and so far, so good. It’s very exciting right now.”

So there you have it, it seems the park is very much open… and will be for a while.

The Jurassic World sequel is due on June 22nd, 2018.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
