Last week JoBlo leaked a handful of details about the upcoming fourth Jurassic Park film, director Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World. Needless to say, the filmmaker was none too happy about the leak, or the mixed response it received from fans. But he’s decided to take control of the information flow and set the record straight by talking to SlashFilm about the sequel. In an exclusive new interview with the site, Trevorrow confirms quite a few things about our next trip to Isla Nublar.
“Jurassic World,” says the director, “takes place in a fully functional park on Isla Nublar. It sees more than 20,000 visitors every day.” Set twenty two years after the original film, Jurassic World takes place at a time when visitors to the park (built in spite of the mishaps which befell John Hammond’s original venue) have grown accustomed, and just a little bit tired, of the live dinosaurs that were once such a miracle of cutting-edge science. On Monday, Trevorrow tweeted the below photo of a uniform badge presumably worn by Jurassic World’s employees…
The director also confirmed that Chris Pratt’s character is “doing behavioral research on the raptors. They aren’t trained, they can’t do tricks. He’s just trying to figure out the limits of the relationship between these highly intelligent creatures and human beings.” Trevorrow confirmed that “there will be one new dinosaur created by the park’s geneticists,” adding “I know the idea of a modified dinosaur put a lot of fans on red alert, and I understand it. But we aren’t doing anything here that Crichton didn’t suggest in his novels. This animal is not a mutant freak.”
Does Jurassic World sound like it will be a worthy successor to Spielberg’s original 1993 blockbuster? Or at least the equal of director Joe Johnston’s Jurassic Park III? Tell us below.
