Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World was by far the biggest movie of the year, earning over $1,6 Billion at the worldwide box office, making it the third highest- grossing film of all time. Although Trevorrow won’t be directing the sequel, which is currently slated for a June 2018 release, he’s hard at work co-writing the film with Derek Conolly, who also worked with him on the first installment of the new trilogy.
The Jurassic Cast Podcast (h/t to Comingsoon) recently sat down with Trevorrow to talk about his experience making the film among other things, where the director revealed that Jurassic World and the upcoming sequel were inspired by a quote from the the very first Jurassic Park film, and specifically, Ian Malcolm.
Jurassic World 2 will see the return of Chris Pratt’s Owen and Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire, who we first met this year on Jurassic World. When asked about the two characters, Trevorrow revealed some intriguing new details about what’s in store for the two heroes, not only in the sequel, but the trilogy as a whole.
Trevorrow also talked about how Jurassic World’s success at the box office is going to help the cast and crew of the sequel make the follow-up not only a different kind of film scale wise, but also story wise.
During the D23 Expo last month, it was confirmed that Trevorrow will direct Star Wars: Episode IX. Although the director couldn’t reveal anything about the movie, he did express how excited he is to work on the Star Wars universe.
