J.A. Bayona confirms Jurassic World trilogy

09.12.2016

When a movie hits a certain level of success the question isn't if there will be a sequel, but how many. The same can be said of JURASSIC WORLD, a movie many thought would finish around the $200 million domestic mark before it demolished all expectations, topping off at $1.6 billion globally ($652 million domestic). Not only can we expect a sequel, but there have been hints that WORLD would be the beginning of a whole new series of dino-themed adventures.

Director of JURASSIC WORLD 2, J.A. Bayona, confirmed with EW that's exactly what's happening, with WORLD director Colin Trevorrow having set up what will end up being a strung-together trilogy of films:

“We’re very into Jurassic World right now. It’s very exciting. Colin Trevorrow has envisioned a whole trilogy of films. Very ambitious. And we’re writing the second chapter, working very close together. It’s very exciting. I cannot tell you very much about it, but we are very excited.”

Now that Bayona's words have solidified the nature of the sequels we can stop asking questions about how future JURASSIC movies will be handled. Would they be like FAST AND FURIOUS where there’s constantly a movie in the works with no end in sight despite the tagline for each movie being “one last ride”? Would they make one every now and again, each with a unique story? Nope. Those who guessed trilogy get a free sandwich.

The adventure sounds like it will continue the story of Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard’s characters, even though they seemed to have solved their whole dinosaur-on-the-loose business at the end of WORLD. I've said before I’m not a huge fan of WORLD, mostly because I didn’t find any of the adventure (let alone the characters) particularly special. I'm still in shock at how much money the movie made, leading me to think they must’ve scarified many goats and bison to ensure the movie’s success. As long as they included “make the sequels better” in their chants, I’m cool with whatever voodoo they had to do.

WORLD 2 is set for June 22, 2018 while J.A. Bayona’s A MONSTER CALLS hits theaters later this year, and Colin Trevorrow will finish up the new STAR WARS trilogy with EPISODE IX in December 2019.

Who isn't up for more dino action?

Thought I heard the next one was called Jurassic World: Evolution. Could be wrong but I'll wait and see then.

Jurassic World was certainly the worst of the sequels. The film had the dinosaurs act like people instead of animals. It ends with a raptor and T-Rex nodding at each other in mutual agreement before parting ways, lol. That's worst than having a shark out for revenge in Jaws 4. At least in that movie the shark didn't have actual conversations with other fish to convince them to turn against humans. I simply can't get over how stupidly cartoonish Jurassic World was.

Good news but....

We all love Jurassic Park. I didn't much care for 2 or 3 and still don't watch them. Jurassic World was better than I thought it was going to be. I thought it was good fun and really how much can the story change? I think we're all afraid like with the first trilogy is that we'll get 2 terrible sequels. I can't really get excited about another ''Park'' where everything goes wrong because they've done that 4 times now. They will have to be very inventive with the story. Not that it will happen

Not that it will happen but about the only thing I don't like about the Jurassic series is the ABC family friendly aspect of it along with the obvious advertising for Mercedes and other products. Give me a hard R, boobs, and some cocaine in the next one.

Jurassic World was terrible. A lifeless rehash of the first movie that doesn't hold up on repeat viewings.

Jurassic World pulled a Gremlins 2 and became overly meta, spoofy, and down right silly. It took everything I didn't like from JP3 ten steps further. At this point I could care less about anymore of these films heading in this new SyFy direction.

I had low expectation with Jurassic World but surprised by how much entertaining it was. Hopefully the new two movies will be as good as the first one.

Excited to hear that more films are on the way, but I'm curious to see how and why Pratt, and Howard's characters return and if the any of the original trio of Neill, Dern, and/or Goldblum return as well to help out.

So tiring hearing the same thing over and over ...

What's the point of saying something if you are not going to tell us anything about the movie -- They all do it, and it's why I just stop reading such articles, etc ... WE are so excited, but yet there's noithing here ... so lame --- It's not state secrets now!

I hope Spielberg will direct one more...

as much as Trevorrow an Bayona are talented, I hope Spielberg will do one more cause his movies are still the best of the entire franchise...
I cannot describe how amazing was the experience of seeing the 1st again in theaters in 3D 3 years ago...

I agree. Maybe he might direct the third movie of this trilogy.

You actually think Trevorrow had ANYTHING to do with JW you are crazy. That movie WREAKS of being studio controlled all the way.

They could have thrown any directors name on that movie and it would have turned out the same.
