Director Colin Trevorrow Reveals JURASSIC WORLD Plot Details

Last week JoBlo leaked a handful of details about the upcoming fourth Jurassic Park film, director Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World. Needless to say, the filmmaker was none too happy about the leak, or the mixed response it received from fans. But he’s decided to take control of the information flow and set the record straight by talking to SlashFilm about the sequel. In an exclusive new interview with the site, Trevorrow confirms quite a few things about our next trip to Isla Nublar.

Jurassic World,” says the director, “takes place in a fully functional park on Isla Nublar. It sees more than 20,000 visitors every day.” Set twenty two years after the original film, Jurassic World takes place at a time when visitors to the park (built in spite of the mishaps which befell John Hammond’s original venue) have grown accustomed, and just a little bit tired, of the live dinosaurs that were once such a miracle of cutting-edge science. On Monday, Trevorrow tweeted the below photo of a uniform badge presumably worn by Jurassic World’s employees…

The director also confirmed that Chris Pratt’s character is “doing behavioral research on the raptors. They aren’t trained, they can’t do tricks. He’s just trying to figure out the limits of the relationship between these highly intelligent creatures and human beings.” Trevorrow confirmed that “there will be one new dinosaur created by the park’s geneticists,” adding “I know the idea of a modified dinosaur put a lot of fans on red alert, and I understand it. But we aren’t doing anything here that Crichton didn’t suggest in his novels. This animal is not a mutant freak.”

Does Jurassic World sound like it will be a worthy successor to Spielberg’s original 1993 blockbuster? Or at least the equal of director Joe Johnston’s Jurassic Park III? Tell us below.

  • I don’t remember anything about Crichton suggesting adding genetically modified dinosaurs to the park being a “good” idea. 

    I loved the books, and the first and third movies. I’m definitely looking forward to Jurassic World.

    • He never suggested it was a “good” idea, but he did suggest that geneticists would want to “enhance” the genes in the long conversation between Dr. Wu and Hammond toward the end of Jurassic Park. Granted, Wu wanted to “dumb down” the dinosaurs, but the genetic modification could just as easily be explored in the opposite direction. And Trevorrow did say early on he wanted to explore Wu’s back story more in this movie.

  • I was completely on board and stoked for this sequel…that was until i read a few additional details about the  “one new dinosaur created by the parks geneticists”….it turns out that the dinosaur is only about 6′ tall,  completely purple,  and incessantly sings “i loveee you…you love mee…we’re a great big familllyyyy”.

    The horror.  The horror.

  • I’m looking forward to it. I may be in the minority, but the “new” dinosaur idea makes sense to me. They’re in a world where people are taking a “been there, seen that” approach to the park. It’s understandable they’d try to increase interest. As long as we aren’t in for CG overload, I’m in. 

  • Intriguing idea that people 22 years later would not be awed by dinosaurs anymore…similar to how  audiences are burnt out on CGI. Hope this theme is explored in the movie!

  • I’ve watched Jurassic park more than any other film and I’m going to see the midnight premiere but with no exceptions what so ever.  Everything about the story seems terrible and it hurts to say so. Especially if they are going to make a theme park on the same island that was destroyed my the Costa Rican government. Napalm does some serious shit. The concept of ”22 years later” is good, and a lot can be done with that, (Containing site B to just the 5 islands for example), but another island park?
