JURASSIC WORLD Timeline and Possible Dinosaur Appearances Revealed by Director Colin Trevorrow

     November 29, 2013


We’ve yet to receive any official plot description for director Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World, but we’re slowly piecing together some evidence from his own Twitter account.  He hasn’t posted any Earth-shattering news of late, but rather bits and pieces which we can use to support other unverified rumors that have been floating around.  What we do know at the moment is that Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson and Ty Simpkins star in the 3D sequel due out June 12, 2015.  For more on the film’s timeline and possible characters, hit the jump.

Karn Bains ‏@pfcbains916
@colintrevorrow Mr. Trevorrow, everytime I read something, it says JW is a reboot. Please tell us that its not a reboot?! I’m going bonkers!

Colin Trevorrow ‏@colintrevorrow
@pfcbains916 Reboot is a strong word. This is a new sci-fi terror adventure set 22 years after the horrific events of Jurassic Park.

That seems to support the previous plot description we posted when reporting on Idris Elba’s possible casting, as follows:

“Jurassic World” is set in present day Isla Nublar, now an actual theme park, as originally intended by John Hammond in the first film. It garners 10 million visitors per year and is completely safe – until it’s not. The park itself is described as very Sea World-esque and includes an area called the Isla Nublar Lagoon. That means underwater dino’s for the first time. No indication of what kind, but there’s concept art showing one of the aquatic dino’s, as part of a show, jumping out of the lagoon and eating a strung up great white shark like it was a fish for a dolphin at sea world.

On a technical note, Trevorrow also mentioned that Jurassic Park’s production designer, Rick Carter, has been collaborating on Jurassic World, but is currently involved with the world-building of Star Wars: Episode VII:

Colin Trevorrow ‏@colintrevorrow
@JurassicPark14 Rick Carter has been a close collaborator as we’ve built our world, but right now he’s focusing on another galaxy.

The moral of the story is this: Ask Trevorrow your JP4 questions while you can before he’s inundated with them closer to the movie’s release.  You never know!
