Jurassic World 2 fans can look forward to watching more dinosaurs in the big screen, now that production of the sequel is underway. This was confirmed by Frank Marshall, producer of the Jurassic movie franchise after he tweeted that the movie's production office in London is now "up and running."
Jurassic Park is a science fiction movie based on Michael Crichton's novel with the same title. Both the book and the movies have been so successful it led to several sequels, with Jurassic World as the most successful so far with over $1.66 billion in gross sales.
Jurassic World 2 will still be penned by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly but will be directed by J.A. Bayona, as Trevorrow will be busy filming the Star Wars: Episode IX, according to Movieweb. The sequel will still have cloned dinosaurs, although it will have a more political storyline compared to the previous movies.
The purchase of two domain names by Universal, one with reference to Isla Nublar and the other to creatures' rights, are said to be a giveaway of what's to come in the sequel. The island may have been closed after it was bombed in the first movie, but a rescue mission could be in the works. Trevorrow previously said the new Jurassic World movie would tackle the issue of animal rights in relation to medical experimentation.
Jurassic World followers are anticipating some changes in the movie with Bayona at the helm, according to Cinemablend. Some movie aficionados see him as another Steven Spielberg based on his past movies so that could mean fans are in for a lot of heavy changes in the story. They would not have to miss Chris Pratt as he would reprise his role as dino-savvy Owen Grady, along with Bryce Dallas Howard who will still play the role of theme park manager Claire Dearing. And don't forget BD Wong as dinosaur creator Dr. Henry Wu.
