In a segment on the Jurassic Cast Podcast, Trevorrow noted that the movie won’t be titled Jurassic World 2, and that it will “get to be a different kind of film.” The director also said that he and co-writer Derek Connolly are building the movie around a line spoken by Dr. Alan Grant in the original 1993 film, where Grant (played by Sam Neill) says, “Dinosaurs and man, separated by 65 million years of evolution, have been thrown back intot he mix together. How can we know what to expect?”
By the sounds of it, the filmmaker doesn’t intend to go bigger or better with the dinosaurs, but use what they’ve done so far as “a starting point for a much larger story about our relationship with these animals in general, and the dynamic created by bringing them back to life.”
This year’s movie was wildly successful, hitting nearly $1.7 billion in worldwide ticket sales during its theater run. Trevvorrow won’t be returning to direct the currently untitled Jurassic World sequel, and we don’t yet know who Universal will pick to helm the movie. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are both set to return for the sequel, which is currently slated for a summer 2018.
