With Jurassic World earning $1.671 billion worldwide in 2015 and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom adding another $1.3 billion earlier this year, Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment are looking ahead at the third Jurassic World film (or sixth Jurassic Park movie, depending who you talk to), which is scheduled for a June 11, 2021 release.
Jurassic Outpost caught up with Jurassic World 3 director Colin Trevorrow, who talked about what we can expect of the dinosaurs in the next film. The site mentioned that people might want to see dinosaurs terrorize cities and suburbs, something we might see in a Godzilla or Planet of the Apes movie.
“I just have no idea what would motivate dinosaurs to terrorize a city,” Trevorrow answered. “They can’t organize. Right now we’ve got lethal predators in wild areas surrounding cities all over the world. They don’t go pack hunting for humans in urban areas. The world I get excited about is the one where it’s possible that a dinosaur might run out in front of your car on a foggy backroad, or invade your campground looking for food. A world where dinosaur interaction is unlikely but possible—the same way we watch out for bears or sharks. We hunt animals, we traffic them, we herd them, we breed them, we invade their territory and pay the price, but we don’t go to war with them. If that was the case, we’d have lost that war a long time ago.”
He also added that there will again be references to the original Jurassic Park films. “Emily and I call it Jurassic Park 6 because it’s fun, and that’s what it is to us. This is the conclusion of a story that began 25 years ago, and I think fans will be fired up when they see how much we’re connecting it to the source material. I know Jurassic World didn’t feel like a sequel in a traditional sense—the title change probably contributed to that—but it was. And so is this.”
What’s also appealing to him is showing the dinosaurs in environments we haven’t seen them in. “I want to go outside into environments we’ve never seen these animals in. I’m watching a lot of Planet Earth.”
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are returning alongside executive producer Steven Spielberg. Trevorrow directed and co-wrote the first Jurassic World. He then executive produced and co-wrote Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and he will return to direct, executive produce, and co-write Jurassic World 3.
