After the original Jurassic World rejuvenated dinophiles and series fans everywhere, director Colin Trevorrow has passed the torch to the talented J.A Bayona.
The Spanish native is holding on to a solid resume, having been at the helm of The Impossible (Ewan McGregor, Naomi Watts) and worked alongside Guillermo Del Toro in The Orphanage.
It’s clear the franchise is in good hands.
The film’s plot will reportedly be different from its predecessor, as script co-writer Colin Trevorrow told Gamespot, “It will get to be a different kind of film … 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.”
The original film was ranked as the fourth most financially successful movie of all time, following after Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Titanic and Avatar.
Familiar faces Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return to the sequel, which plans to arrive in theaters on June 22, 2018.
