We’re still not too sure about the overall plot of ‘Jurassic World 2‘ but Colin Trevorrow who directed the first installment of the new trilogy has shared a bit about the direction that director J.A. Bayona will be travelling in when it premieres. Once again the franchise is set to explore such philosophical questions such as “Yeah, yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn’t stop to think if they should” which was made famous when Dr. Ian Malcolm uttered it in the very first ‘Jurassic Park’.
So what is going on this time around? For the first time ever it seems like we’ll have some activists involved and I’m wondering if they’ll even be a spoof of PETA here as Trevorrow says:
The dinosaurs will be a parable of the treatment animals receive today: the abuse, medical experimentation, pets, having wild animals in zoos like prisons, the use the military has made of them, animals as weapons.
We’re not in a place in the film where dinosaurs aren’t just tourist attractions and humanity is now using our creation are utilizing them in a way that has moral and ethical implications. With Vincent D’Onofrio’s character clearly trying to turn raptors into weapons in the last installment this seems like a pretty easy jump. While the military tests were unsuccessful we did see BD Wong’s character escape from the island with the DNA samples which could mean that a new batch of dinosaurs or even genetically modified ones are going to be on the loose.
‘War of the Jurassic World’ has a nice ring to it for the endcap of this trilogy, doesn’t it?
