Nobody was surprised to hear that a sequel to JURASSIC WORLD was in the works, especially since WORLD is now the 3rd highest grossing picture of all time. The latest dinosaur feature proved to be a reboot of sorts, presenting a new park with new dinosaurs to play with. While JURASSIC WORLD was able to get away with the "park mentality", much like the first, director Colin Trevorrow acknowledges that they can't get away with the same concept again. Speaking with Wired magazine, he owned up to the fact that he knew sequels would be planned, and what he did on his part to pave the way.

Colin Trevorrow on JURASSIC WORLD sequels:

Whether or not I am involved in later installments or not, I felt it was important for me to set the table. I know they’re going to want to make them, I know that Stephen definitely wants to make several of these movies, and I want to do my job in setting the table for something that can be rich and thoughtful and interesting. [It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island. "That’ll get old real fast.

I feel like the idea that this isn’t always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment. And when you look back at nuclear power and how that started, the first instinct was to weaponise it and later on we found it could be used for energy.

And this isn’t something necessarily that was in the book but is a seed that I wanted to plant in this movie, is that might be able to grow in more of these movies if they decide to make more of them, is: What if this went open source? It's almost like InGen is Mac, but what if PC gets their hands on it? What if there are 15 different entities around the world who can make a dinosaur?"

And Dr Wu says in the film, when he's warning Dr Mesrani, 'we’re not always going to be the only ones who can make a dinosaur'. I think that’s an interesting idea that even if we don’t explore fully in this film, there is room for this universe to expand. I shouldn’t use the word universe, because people will think we’re making a Jurassic World universe -- we’re not.

While moving away from the actual park is a no-brainer, I think the big question will be how to incorporate both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard back into the fold. Pratt's character has a lot of admiration for the dinosaurs so that shouldn't be too hard, but Howard's character seems like a harder sell. In any event, I hope they come up with a plot that's just as much fun as PARK and WORLD was. I didn't love WORLD as much as most seemed to, but I enjoyed the characters and seeing dinosaurs up on the big screen. As long as they don't "reamke" LOST WORLD, I think we're good!

The sequel to JURASSIC WORLD is scheduled to hit theaters on June 22, 2018

The originals should be brought back to help put an end to it. I know they didn't want to force them in, but I mean, if this were real don't you think they'd be completely against anything related to bringing back dinosaurs after almost dying in JP.

And don't forget Isla Sorna is still there with its own vast Dinosaur world. Would definitely like to see what happened with that island 14 years after the third film (if we go with real time gap as cinematic time gap) and how that would incorporate in farther "weaponizing" and developing of Dinosaurs (But of course please don't do a rehash of Lost World!). Not to mention it should be a given that Both Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum or atleast one of them MUST make a return! Would love to see

Would love to see their take on the whole new development of Dinos and the recent disaster on Isla Nublar, again ("They never learn!"). I personally really enjoyed Jurassic World, of course it didn't have the heartstopping tension and mounting dread of impending doom of the first one but it was fun, action-packed and positively thrilling, and had some good characters. In my opinion better than both Lost World and JPIII (the characters of these two sequels were mostly awful, other than Grant & Malcolm). Looking forward to the next one.

I'm calling it, as I'm sure many have, "Jurassic War" to be announced in one or two films time.

Love Jurassic Park so much but World just didnt do it for me. Hopefully they'll come up with something better for the sequel.

Loved Jurassic World, but all I ask is for one thing for the sequel; Jeff Goldblum must make a return.
