Colin Trevorrow is addressing concerns that the upcoming sequel Jurassic World is a reboot. The director says it is not trying to reinvent the franchise, and that it will serve as a true follow-up set within the world as envisioned for the screen by Steven Spielberg from the novel by Michael Crichton.
This is what Trevorrow had to say about the upcoming release, set for June 2015.
@pfcbains916 Reboot is a strong word. This is a new sci-fi terror adventure set 22 years after the horrific events of Jurassic Park.— Colin Trevorrow (@colintrevorrow) November 23, 2013
We don't yet know the full story details for this 3D adventure. It is rumored to take place on Isla Nublar, which has been turned into an amusement park, as first envisioned by John Hammond. There, Dinosaur trainers run a Sea World type Isla Nublar Lagoon, which will include underwater dinosaurs for the first time in the franchise's history. The film will also include a never-before-seen dinosaur that will rival the T-Rex in terror.
