J.A. Bayona talks about using animatronics in Jurassic World 2

12.09.2016

J.A. Bayona is receiving some serious accolades from critics regarding his work on A MONSTER CALLS (check out our review HERE), and that has everyone really excited for JURASSIC WORLD 2. We know that Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return, but beyond that, plot details are being kept in the dark. If one of your complaints about JURASSIC WORLD was the use of CGI, then Bayona has you covered. He recently spoke with The Hollywood Reporter regarding the importance of animatronics, and you can check out the quote below!

J.A. Bayona on using animatronics in JURASSIC WORLD 2:

Obviously you don't have real dinosaurs - sometimes you have people playing dinosaurs — but we love animatronics and we're trying to do as much with them as possible. It's complicated because the audience now is so used to seeing CGI that they're sometimes reluctant toward animatronics. But at the same time, I think animatronics bring soul and reality to it. We're trying to find the balance between animatronics and CGI in order to cheat the audience so they don't know what they're seeing.

"Soul and reality" is a key term that I'm happy to see Bayona bring up, as that was the biggest thing that was missing from JURASSIC WORLD. It spent far too much pandering to the audience and trying to wow them with special effects. Now that we're seemingly moving things out of the park, I'm curious to know how the story will progress. And if they want to bring back Jeff Goldblum...I wouldn't hate that!

JURASSIC WORLD 2 opens in theaters on June 22, 2018.

I don't think they get it which is beyond me. Cut all the action set pieces, and give us one, just ONE amazing shot of a realistic dinosaur that we don't dismiss right away as CGI. That being said, CGI isn't the worst thing, I mean looks at Jungle book, but Jurassic is different in that we were spoiled with REAL looking dinos the first time round, so it really doesn't matter how great the CGI gets, the detail shown by a practically designed method will always be better, look at NINJA TURTLES,

You hit the nail on the head. No matter how amazing CGI gets, in 1993 we saw a real T-Rex. In the flesh

And the t-rex was CGI pretty much for the rest of the movie, but because our eyes got those closeups of the animatronic in the rain, we knew from then on...T-Rex was a real beast
