While the "Jurassic World" remake centered on militarized dinosaurs, new director Juan Antonio Bayona is expected to veer away from these characters in the upcoming sequel. Former director Colin Trevorrow meanwhile spilled bits of details for the film series' next installment.
"Jurassic World 2" is expected to be more thrilling and terrifying than its prequel as Trevorrow confirmed horror director Bayona will take over in the upcoming set. According to Trevorrow, "Jurassic World 2" will sit well with Bayona as the new director owing to its dark story.
Jurassic World 2's New Director The Perfect Fit
In a report from Jurassic Outpost, Trevorrow admitted that even before Bayona's name rang a bell for the directorship takeover of the "Jurassic World" sequel, he already had an idea that the horror director would be perfect for the movie considering his portfolio.
"Jurassic World 2" will still have Trevorrow as the producer and scriptwriter alongside Derek Connolly. He, on the other hand, will be part of the team behind the making of another upcoming film, "Star Wars: Episode IX."
"Jurassic World 2" Features No More Militarized Dinosaurs?
While Bayona is reportedly reluctant over the militarized dinosaurs to be brought in the new set, it is still not the end of these characters, which were the focus of the first installment. Trevorrow, however, noted that "Jurassic World 2" will no longer shove the spotlight on the militarization of these legendary creatures.
He revealed that the initial script for the movie revolved around Chris Pratt's character Owen Brady pursuing the militarization of dinosaurs. When Trevorrow and fellow scriptwriter Connolly was carried on board, the plot took major changes because for them a protagonist militarizing dinosaurs seemed ridiculous.
"Jurassic World" Has More Practical Effects
Apart from the considerably ridiculous storyline, Trevorrow underscored the producers' setback to employ more advanced animatronics in the first installment. Thus, the team is gunning for more practical effects in the upcoming sequel.
"Jurassic World 2" frontlines Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, who were already confirmed to reprise their roles from the first movie.
"Jurassic World 2" is coming in theaters on June 22, 2018.
