Jurassic World plot details revealed

JurassicWorld

Anyone who read my review of Jurassic Park Builder for iOS knows that I’m a fan of the Jurassic Park franchise — and like a lot of fans of the series I’m eagerly awaiting Jurassic World, the forthcoming movie sequel set to stomp into movie theatres June 12, 2015.

For those of us craving plot details like a t-rex craves human-sized snacks, director Colin Trevorrow recently shed some light in an interview for SlashFilm.

Jurassic World, he says, takes place 22 years after the events of the first film, on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar which has been successfully completed and now sees more than 20,000 visitors per day.

The director confirms that leading actor Chris Pratt’s character Owen is engaged in behavioural research on the park’s raptor population. “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 also confirmed that “there will be one new dinosaur created by the park’s geneticists” — adding that, “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.”

So a fully operational park, smarter-than-ever raptors and a brand new dinosaur? Sign me up. Hopefully the 14 years that will have elapsed since 2001’s disappointing Jurassic Park III will make this a sequel worthy of original author (and noted Mac fan) Michael Crichton.

    All of that sounds spectacular, but just give us Sam Neil & Jeff Goldblum, and it’ll be a hit again.

    If you were disappointed in JPIII, you must’ve HATED JPII. Or should we not acknowledge that one as a true part of the series?
