Director Colin Treverrow Confirms Recent JURASSIC WORLD Spoilers
Two weeks ago, a source for JoBlo provided a plethora of Jurassic World details regarding the new park, a new DNA-spliced dino (T-Rex/raptor/snake/cuttlefish) and Chris Pratt's training "good" dinosaurs. Up until now, this report was regarded as a mere rumor, but director Colin Treverrow has decided to address the rumors in an in-depth interview with slashfilm.com. Normally, we could expect denials with spoilers of this magnitude but Treverrow has decided to confirm most of the information JoBlo posted. That's refreshing!
A couple weeks ago, JoBlo posted some rumors about Jurassic World that had Jurassic Park fans alarmed, and now in a surprise move director Colin Treverrow has confirmed to Slash Film that those rumors are true. Check it out.
Will there be crossbred dinosaurs or new species created for the movie?
We were hoping audiences could discover this on their own, but yes, there will be one new dinosaur created by the park’s geneticists. The gaps in her sequence were filled with DNA from other species, much like the genome in the first film was completed with frog DNA. This creation exists to fulfill a corporate mandate—they want something bigger, louder, with more teeth. And that’s what they get.
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. It doesn’t have a snake’s head or octopus tentacles. It’s a dinosaur, created in the same way the others were, but now the genetics have gone to the next level. For me, it’s a natural evolution of the technology introduced in the first film. Maybe it sounds crazy, but most of my favorite movies sound crazy when you describe them in a single sentence.
What are the relationships between the main characters and the dinosaurs? Are there “good guy” and “bad guy” dinosaurs in the movie?
There’s no such thing as good or bad dinosaurs. There are predators and prey. The T-Rex in Jurassic Park took human lives, and saved them. No one interpreted her as good or bad. This film is about our relationship with animals, how we react to the threat they pose to our dominance on earth as a species. We hunt them, we cage them in zoos, we admire them from afar and we try to assert control over them. 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. If people don’t think there’s potential in those ideas, maybe they won’t like this movie. But I ask them to give it a chance.
