Director JA Boyona promises a ‘massive and bigger’ ‘Jurassic World’ sequel

Fans turned out for Jurassic World, a long-awaited sequel to Jurassic Park and now director J.A. Bayona will take over for Colin Trevorrow to helm a sequel. Speaking with The Playlist, Bayona spoke about the scope of his sequel and said that making a dinosaur movie felt like the right decision after some horror films.

“After doing The Impossible and A Monster Calls I said, ‘I want to have fun now.’ So, let’s do a dinosaur film with Spielberg. It’s great, but at the same time it’s massive and way bigger than [the last] one.”

Bayona has previously alluded that Jurassic World 2 will be a bit darker than other movies in the series and won’t shy away from a little bit of political commentary. In this new interview, he also spoke about keeping the Jurassic series fresh in its fifth entry and how the new film will pay tribute to the past while paving new ground.

“I think what is tricky about doing the fifth movie of a franchise is how will you bring in new stuff and still pay tribute to what we all know and the legacy of the film. So, it’s the balance between the new stuff and the old stuff. I think Colin did a great job in the first one finding the balance between what people are expecting and what people are being again.”

Even Bayona was shocked by the direction of the franchise: “I was kind of surprised when he pitched me the story because it leads the story to a place that we’ve never seen before and it brings some of the most important elements from the other films and makes something with them. I thought that was very interesting. It’s the second chapter of a trilogy so it gets the story to a place that wants you leaving more and more.”

Jurassic World 2 is set for a June 22, 2018 release.

Plot details are under wraps, but we do know that B.D. Wong will return once again with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.
