Director Colin Trevorrow took some time out of his busy schedule shooting Jurassic World in Hawaii to discuss the potential for sequels, which he plans on directing, "if they'll have him." The filmmaker revealed that Universal Pictures already has sequels planned out, in a new interview with Empire, where he revealed that he wants to make this reboot a complete story, instead of episodic sequels.
"We definitely talked about [sequels] a lot. We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story."
While little is known about the story of Jurassic World, it has been confirmed that the reboot will take place on Isla Nublar, the original setting of 1993's Jurassic Park, where a working theme park with live dinosaurs has been created and attracts millions of visitors per year, which we got our first glimpse of in concept art released last month.
"He's essentially Chris Pratt's best friend. They work together and have some pretty cool action scenes together. I wanted to create a relationship there that could be memorable and potentially carry on to future films."
However, the filmmaker still said there's a chance that Chris Pratt's character, a former military man, will meet his demise in the adventure, but he isn't saying one way or another. Colin Trevorrow also talked briefly about the story, hinting that that the plot centers on two alpha species, humans and dinosaurs, trying to co-exist.
"It's about alpha dominance and the fact that humans have been the alpha species for a very long time, and so now we've brought back another that happened to be the alpha species during its time, and we have to co-exist, so what is that relationship?"
Production is currently under way in Hawaii before shifting to New Orleans.
