There’s no denying that Jurassic World was a box office monster. With only a budget reported around $150 million, the movie went on to make $649 million domestically and another $1 billion overseas. So there’s no surprise that movie big-wigs jumped at the opportunity to make a sequel. In fact, did you know that Jurassic World is actually part of an already planned out trilogy? Thankfully, most of the people who made the first movie successful should be back for the other two movies as well. Don’t expect the second movie to be all about bigger and more dangerous dinosaurs, though. In fact, in a recent interview, Jurassic World director, Colin Trevorrow, gave some insight as to what audiences can expect for the rest of the Jurassic franchise.

Before we get into the future of mankind and dinosaurs, here is what Trevorrow had to say about what inspired Jurassic World and Jurassic World 2 in a recent discussion he had with the Jurassic Cast Podcast.

“Honestly, the trilogy is articulated in Jurassic Park, it’s all in there. Jurassic World is all based on Ian Malcolm’s quote, ‘You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could, and before you even knew what you had, you patented it, and packaged it, and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you wanna sell it.’ That to me is Jurassic World, that’s why I had all the product placement, that’s what it was. The second one, Jurassic World 2, and as we were driving we tried to find, what is the foundation? ‘Dinosaurs and man, separated by 65 million years of evolution have been thrown back into the mix together. How can we know what to expect?'”

It’s nice to know that the future of this franchise won’t be surrounded entirely by numbers. To have someone who is as interested as Trevorrrow should comfort fans that their baby won’t be ruined by greed and other distractions. So what kind of a movie can audiences expect out of the next Jurassic World? In that same episode he went on to say,

“It will get to be a different kind of film. The audience has given us permission to a certain extent to take this to the next level, and I don’t necessarily mean in scale, I feel very strongly that it’s not about more dinosaurs or bigger and better dinosaurs, it’s about using this as a starting point for a much larger story about our relationship with these animals and about animals in general and the dynamic created by bringing them back to life.”

Let’s face it, we’ve all grown accustomed to sequels trying to making things bigger and better. Just take a look at all those Transformer movies. It seemed like Michael Bay tried to best himself when it came to explosions in each movie. At the rate he was going, he probably would have tried to blow up the entire planet (or at least a big chunk of it). Can you believe it? A movie with dinosaurs trying to explore the relationship them and man. Who knows where Trevorrow is going with this? Wherever this ends up, it’s going to be a great ride as both Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt are set to reprise their roles from the first movie.

As a final note, it should be made clear that Trevorrow will, sadly, not be directing the sequel, but he will be scripting it along with Derek Connolly. What do you think, though? Will you see the next movie in a three-part series? Are you ready to explore the relationship between man and dinosaur?

Jurassic World 2 is set for release on June 22, 2018
