Jurassic World Dominion director Colin Trevorrow compared a new dinosaur featured in the film to The Joker.
With Jurassic World Dominion, the third installment in Universal Pictures’ blockbuster trilogy, audiences will venture back into an Earth that has since had dinosaurs living amongst humans after the destruction of Isla Nublar in Fallen Kingdom. Amongst these dinosaurs is a new threat named “Giga,” one in which Colin Trevorrow compared to perhaps the most influential villain in modern blockbuster history: The Joker.
As strange as the idea of a dinosaur being similar to The Joker sounds on paper, Colin Trevorrow explained that he wrote Giga into the story as an exciting new threat for the world established in Jurassic World Dominion:
“I wanted something that felt like The Joker. It just wants to watch the world burn.”
In regards to where The Joker-esque dinosaur in Giga lives, it lives in BioSyn Valley, the rival company to InGen in which Dennis Nedry (Wayne Knight) was sent to steal the dinosaur embryos from. Director Colin Trevorrow emphasizes that this film is the sequel he’s been building up to since his first film premiered in 2015:
“It’s an entirely new kind of movie. It’s the thing I’ve been waiting to do this whole time. It’s going to be Giga-ntic.”
The idea of Giga the dinosaur being a very destructive force in the upcoming sequel is intriguing. Obviously, people will probably be most intrigued by the comparison to The Joker, but likely, this comparison is only due to their similarities in wanting to bring chaos, rather than having a psychotic dinosaur laughing as it devours its next victims.
Here is the synopsis for the film:
“This summer, experience the epic conclusion to the Jurassic era as two generations unite for the first time.
