Jurassic World sequels planned, according to director Colin Trevorrow

In today's "no shit" news, it seems as though there are several movies in the JURASSIC universe in the works.

I suppose the notion of further JURASSIC WORLD adventures past next summer's series reboot isn't really a mind-blowing notion, but it's still exciting to think we have years of (presumably, hopefully) awesome films where dinosaurs wreak bloody havoc to look forward to.

Director Colin Trevorrow revealed as much to Empire in a recent conversation, saying the following:

We definitely talked about [sequels] a lot… We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story.”

That's only natural, as nowadays studios rarely - if ever - make tentpoles that they can't imagine spinning off two or three more installments from.

Trevorrow also gave Empire an idea of what JURASSIC WORLD is all about, in fairly broad strokes:

It’s about alpha dominance and the fact that humans have been the alpha species for a very long time, and so now we’ve brought back another that happened to be the alpha species during its time, and we have to co-exist, so what is that relationship?”

That's pretty much what these films have always been about, but nice to see they're continuing the tradition.

Finally, Trevorrow had a few details to spill about Omar Sy's character, and how he and co-star Chris Pratt might figure into JURASSIC's future plans:

He’s essentially Chris Pratt’s best friend,” he said of the Sy character. “They work together and have some pretty cool action scenes together. I wanted to create a relationship there that could be memorable and potentially carry on to future films.”

And there you have it. JURASSIC WORLD comes out June of 2015.
