Take a peek behind the scenes of Jurassic World 2 (Video)

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Truth be told, for the past year or so I haven’t been looking forward to JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM. Sure I’ve been doing my research and reporting on the film like a good little chicken, but I had next to no enthusiasm for the film itself. Until that one trailer hit with the huge goddamn water dinosaur eating a surfer mid-wave. Then I was all-in.

I’d understand if you’d need some more convincing yourself so maybe today’s new featurette can help you out. The featurette, which you can see below, is fairly typical in the way that it’s mostly comprised of the powers that be behind the scenes talking the film up. But director J.A. Bayona is quick to point out that this new film will be more on the side of a gothic horror film (in part) than an action-adventure. The director also points out that the heart of the film is with Chris Pratt and his pet raptor Blue. Aww.

When we pick up the tale of this new film:

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment.  Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.

When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.  Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission.  Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before.  Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. 

Stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return alongside executive producers Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow and are joined by co-stars James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall and Isabella Sermon, while BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles.

Directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible), the epic action-adventure is written by Jurassic World’s director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, Derek Connolly.  Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again partner with Spielberg and Trevorrow in leading the filmmakers for this stunning installment.  Belén Atienza joins the team as a producer.

The film roars its huge ass into theaters June 22nd.
