Colin Trevorrow Talks JURASSIC WORLD Trilogy; Teases The Future Of 'Owen' & 'Claire'

Jurassic World had a pretty good summer as it became the 3rd highest grossing film of all-time. In a recent podcast, director Colin Trevorrow shared a few details about the upcoming sequel, the trilogy, and the future of Chris Pratt's 'Owen' & Bryce Dallas Howard's 'Claire.' Check it out!


Universal's Jurassic World is without a question, the biggest film of the year. As of today, the Colin Trevorrow-directed blockbuster has grossed over $1.659 billion at the worldwide box office, is currently the third highest grossing film of all-time, and has smashed over twenty-two box office records in its historic run.

In a recent appearance on the Jurassic Cast Podcast, Trevorrow opened up about the future of the franchise, which he confirms will hopefully be at least a trilogy of films. He reveals how a quote from Steven Spielberg's original Jurassic Park initially helped him come up with the idea for Jurassic World, how the 2018 sequel won't be just another 'dinosaurs chasing people on an island' movie, and also touches on how he hopes to further develop the characters of Owen and Claire, who were played by stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Check out his comments below:


We looked at it as a trilogy from the very beginning. We designed the whole thing that way. And, honestly, the whole trilogy is articulated in Jurassic Park. Jurassic World is all based on Ian Malcom’s quote: ‘you stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could and before you knew what you had, you’d packaged it and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox and now you want to sell it.’ That, to me, is Jurassic World. That’s why I had all the product placement, that’s what it was. So with Jurassic World 2 it’s: 'dinosaurs and man separated by 65 million years of evolution have been thrown back into the mix together – how can we know what to expect?'. That’s not the exact quote, but you get the idea. And that’s why its exciting the movie did well. I had a beginning, a middle and an end and it was designed this way. So now we get to play that out.

It’ll be a different kind of film and the audience has given us kind of permission to take this to the next level. And I don’t mean in scale. I feel very strongly that this is not ‘more dinosaurs’ or ‘bigger dinosaurs’, it’s about using this as a starting point to discover our relationship with these animals and with animals in general, and the dynamic that was created by bringing them back to life.

We made [Jurassic World] with the fans very much in mind and I’m not going to forget that, but we’ve seen a lot of ‘dinosaurs chasing people around on an island’ movies. And I think you guys and the general audience are going to be down to explore where else we can go. Owen is going to be in it, Claire is in it and neither are going to be in the same place we left them in the first movie. And even though Claire is the one who evolves the most over the trilogy, it’s her story that mirrors this changing world. Owen has shit to deal with. They’ve both opened Pandora’s Box in Jurassic World and both of them are responsible for different elements of it. And I think the way these characters are connected to these circumstances of what’s happening, it’s different than previous films. It’s not ‘let’s manufacture a way to get them somewhere’, they’re embedded into it now in a way that us storytellers are able to keep them involved without it feeling contrived.


Sounds exciting enough, so what do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below!
