Set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, Jurassic World takes place on the same fictional Central American island of Isla Nublar, which is located off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, where a theme park of cloned dinosaurs has operated for nearly a decade. The park plunges into chaos when a genetically-engineered dinosaur escapes from its enclosure and goes on a rampage.

Universal Pictures intended to begin production of a fourth Jurassic Park film in 2004 for a mid-2005 release but development stalled while the script underwent several revisions. Following a suggestion from executive producer Steven Spielberg, writers Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver explored the idea of a functional dinosaur park. Once Trevorrow was hired as director in 2013, he followed the same idea while developing a new script with Derek Connolly. Filming lasted from April to August 2014 in Louisiana and Hawaii. The dinosaurs were created by Industrial Light & Magic using CGI and by Legacy Effects using life-sized animatronics.

Production was completed in May 2015,[4] and Jurassic World was released in over 60 countries beginning on June 10, 2015. After a record-breaking opening weekend during which it became the first film to gross over $500 million,[5] Jurassic World generated $1.6 billion in box office revenue, ranking sixth among the highest-grossing films of all time. The film has a 72% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which called it "an entertaining... popcorn thriller". It was also the second-highest-grossing film of 2015 and the highest-grossing in the franchise. Furthermore, it is the highest grossing film ever released by Universal Pictures unadjusted for inflation.[6] A sequel titled Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was released in June 2018. An animated series based on the film is scheduled for a 2020 release on Netflix.

PlotEdit

Brothers Zach and Gray Mitchell visit Jurassic World, a dinosaur theme park on Isla Nublar, of which their aunt Claire Dearing is the operations manager. Claire assigns her assistant Zara as the boys' guide, but they evade her and explore on their own. Elsewhere on the island, U.S. Navy veteran and ethologist Owen Grady has been training four Velociraptors named Blue, Echo, Delta, and Charlie, and researching their intelligence. Based on the raptors' ability to follow commands, head of InGen security Vic Hoskins believes that the animals can be weaponized, an idea Owen and his assistant Barry begrudgingly oppose.

Prior to its opening, Claire and park owner Simon Masrani inspect the park's newest attraction, the Indominus rex, a genetically-engineered dinosaur created by geneticist Dr. Henry Wu. Masrani tasks Owen with evaluating the enclosure. Owen warns Claire that the Indominus lacks social skills, making it dangerous and unpredictable. When it seems that the Indominus has escaped, Owen and two park workers enter the enclosure. The Indominus, which can camouflage itself and mask its heat signature, suddenly appears. Owen survives, but it devours the other two men before escaping into the island's interior. Owen advises Masrani to have the Indominus killed, but with an interest to protect his company's investment, Masrani dispatches a specialized unit to subdue it with non-lethal weaponry. After most of the unit is slaughtered, Claire orders the evacuation of the island's northern sector.

While exploring the park in a tour vehicle, Zach and Gray enter a restricted area. The Indominus arrives and destroys the vehicle but the boys narrowly escape. They find the ruins of the original Jurassic Park visitor center, repair an old Jeep Wrangler, and drive back to the park resort. As Claire and Owen search for the boys, they barely escape the Indominus. Masrani and two troopers hunt the Indominus by helicopter but it breaks into the park's aviary, releasing pterosaursPteranodon and Dimorphodon species – which collide with the helicopter, causing it to crash, killing Masrani and his troopers in the process. Gray and Zach find Owen and Claire at the resort as armed personnel shoot down swarming pterosaurs with tranquilizers.

Assuming command, Hoskins orders the raptors to be used to track the Indominus. Forced to comply, Owen leads the raptors. Upon finding the Indominus, the dinosaurs begin communicating among themselves. Owen realizes that the Indominus has Velociraptor DNA, and it usurps Owen's dominance, becoming the pack's new alpha. Troops fire on the Indominus, but it escapes. The raptors slaughter most of the troops, but they do manage to kill Charlie. Hoskins evacuates Wu and the dinosaur embryos from the island to protect Wu's research. Owen, Claire, and the boys find Hoskins at the lab trying to secure more embryos, but Blue breaks in and kills him.

Owen re-establishes his bond with the three surviving raptors before the Indominus reappears. They attack the Indominus but Echo and Delta are killed while Blue is knocked unconscious. Claire releases the park's Tyrannosaurus rex and lures it into a battle with the Indominus, which gains the advantage over the T. rex until Blue joins the battle. With their combined strength, they corner the Indominus at the lagoon's edge, where it is dragged underwater by the park's Mosasaurus. The exhausted T. rex spares Blue and limps away and Owen lets Blue go off on her own. The survivors are evacuated and the island is abandoned again. Zach and Gray are reunited with their parents, while Owen and Claire decide to stay together.

Themes and analysisEdit

Director Colin Trevorrow stated that the Indominus rex, the synthetic hybrid dinosaur at the center of the film's story, is symbolic of consumer and corporate excess. The dinosaur was "meant to embody [humanity's] worst tendencies. We're surrounded by wonder and yet we want more, and we want it bigger, faster, louder, better. And in the world of the movie, the animal is designed based on a series of corporate focus groups."[21] He also stated, "There's something in the film about our greed and our desire for profit. The Indominus rex, to me, is very much that desire, that need to be satisfied."[22] Film journalists have noted parallels between the workings of the park in Jurassic World and of the film and entertainment industry.[23] Actor James DuMont said "the person [and] the environment are one" is an obvious theme; another theme is "those who do not stop evil are supporting and encouraging it".[24]

The film also explores the concept of raising an animal in a particular way; the Indominus rex was raised in captivity—in complete isolation—making the creature "not fully functional".[25]

ProductionEdit

DevelopmentEdit

In May 2001, Steven Spielberg had Amblin Entertainment commence development of ideas for Jurassic Park IV, which he planned to produce.[26] Initially, Jurassic Park III director Joe Johnston was not interested in directing the fourth film.[27] In 2002, William Monahan was announced as screenwriter, and a release date was set for mid-2005. Kathleen Kennedy would produce the film, and Spielberg would serve as executive producer.[28][29]

An early story idea would partially involve dinosaurs migrating to the Costa Rican mainland. A team of experts, including Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ian Malcolm, would chart an expedition to an offshore island and discover the dinosaurs breeding freely. Part of the plot would involve the characters devising a way to restrict the spread of the dinosaurs and prevent an ecological disaster.[30][31] Early concept art also depicted genetically engineered human-dinosaur mercenaries.[32][33][34] Monahan's first draft of the script was finished in July 2003; the story was not set in a jungle, as in previous films.[35] Monahan subsequently left the project to work on Kingdom of Heaven. In 2004, Frank Marshall joined the project as a producer,[36] and Monahan was replaced by John Sayles,[37][38] who wrote two drafts of the script.[39] In one draft, a new character, a mercenary named Nick Harris, would be charged with training a team of genetically modified Deinonychus for use on rescue missions and to combat drug dealers.[40][41][42] The concept of a human who trains dinosaurs came from Spielberg.[43] By April 2005, the film had been postponed, as Spielberg was dissatisfied with the script revisions.[44]

Progress on the film stalled during 2005 as Marshall and Spielberg were busy with other film projects.[45] In 2006, Spielberg said Johnston would direct the film.[46] Additional work on the film was expected to begin following the release of a fourth Indiana Jones film, which Marshall and Spielberg were working on.[47] By April 2007, Johnston was no longer involved as director.[48] A release date of 2008 was expected,[49] but was later delayed to 2009.[50] By 2010, Johnston was involved with the project again and planned for the film to be the first in a new Jurassic Park trilogy.[51][52][53] Johnston hoped to further develop the project with Spielberg after they finished other projects, including Johnston's 2011 film, Captain America: The First Avenger.[53]

In 2011, writer Mark Protosevich was hired.[54] He wrote two story treatments, neither of which were approved.[55] Spielberg and Kennedy felt that the film did not yet have an adequate story.[56] In 2012, Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver were hired to write the script.[57] The writers incorporated three ideas from Spielberg: a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, a human who has a relationship with trained raptors (from Sayles's earlier draft), and a human-eating dinosaur that escapes and has to be stopped.[4][58][59]

Pre-productionEdit

In January 2013, Universal set a release date of June 13, 2014.[60] In February 2013, it was announced that Kennedy would not produce the film, as she would be busy with the upcoming Star Wars sequel trilogy.[61] A month later, Colin Trevorrow was hired as director,[62] and Patrick Crowley was announced as a producer alongside Marshall.[63] Trevorrow and his writing partner, Derek Connolly, rewrote the earlier draft by Jaffa and Silver, while retaing Spielberg's three story ideas. The film's release was delayed by a year to give the writers time to perfect the script.[64][65][14][66] Universal announced in September 2013 that the film would be titled Jurassic World, with a release scheduled for June 12, 2015.[67] The film is set 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park,[68] and is considered a direct sequel to that film; although The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III remain canon in the series, Jurassic World ignores their events as they occurred on a different island location.[18][69][70]

Between 2003 and 2008, several cast members from previous Jurassic Park films were expected to reprise their roles, including Sam Neill as Dr. Alan Grant,[71] Jeff Goldblum as Dr. Ian Malcolm,[72][73] Richard Attenborough as John Hammond,[74][75] and Laura Dern as Dr. Ellie Sattler.[49] Attenborough retired from acting following a fall at his house in 2008.[76] A statue of his character is featured in the film.[20] Trevorrow and Connolly did not want to bring back the other characters unless there would be a good reason for them to be involved in the story; they considered Dr. Henry Wu, the scientist responsible for recreating dinosaurs, a logical choice.[14][66]

Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson were cast as the child characters in October 2013.[77][78] Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt were cast in the lead roles.[79][14] Vincent D'Onofrio and Irrfan Khan were cast in early 2014,[80][81] and BD Wong was announced to be reprising his role of Dr. Henry Wu, marking the character's first appearance since the original Jurassic Park film in 1993.[66]

FilmingEdit

Principal photography began on April 10, 2014,[82] in Hawaii.[83] Filming locations there included the islands of Kauai and Oahu. The Indominus rex enclosure was among the shooting locations in Hawaii.[84][85] Filming continued in Hawaii until June 2014,[85] before moving to Louisiana. The Main Street and boardwalk area of the fictional Jurassic World theme park was constructed in the parking lot of the abandoned Six Flags New Orleans park.[10][86] NASA's Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans was also used to construct interior sets representing the Jurassic World park.[10][86] Other sets constructed at the facility included a Mosasaurus feeding show and a raptor enclosure.[87][10][88]

The film includes a scene in which Claire's assistant Zara (portrayed by Katie McGrath) is carried off by several Pteranodon before falling into the park's lagoon, where she is eaten by the Mosasaurus,[89][90][91] marking the first female death in the series.[92][93] Trevorrow wanted to make it "the most spectacular death we can possibly imagine",[92] while also wanting to surprise moviegoers,[89][94] stating, "Let's have someone die who just doesn't deserve to die at all."[92]

Stan Winston provided animatronic dinosaurs for the previous Jurassic Park films, and intended to do the same for the fourth film prior to his death in 2008.[95] Instead, Winston's former colleagues at Legacy Effects provided an animatronic Apatosaurus for the film.[96][97] Maquettes were used to depict the velociraptors during certain scenes,[88][98] and some dinosaurs were created through the use of motion capture.[99] The remaining dinosaurs were computer-generated by Industrial Light & Magic.[100] Filming concluded on August 5, 2014.[101]

MusicEdit

The musical score was composed by Michael Giacchino, who had previously scored the video games Warpath: Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park.[102] John Williams's themes from previous Jurassic Park scores were incorporated by Giacchino, who said; "It was a really targeted approach, as to where to [include Williams's themes] and where would make the most sense and where would we most appreciate it, as fans ourselves".[103] A soundtrack album was released on June 9, 2015, by Back Lot Music.[104]

MarketingEdit

The first official pictures of the film set were released on April 23, 2014,[105] and were followed by the release of the first film stills in June 2014.[106] During the San Diego Comic-Con convention in July 2014, 500 copies of a limited-edition Jurassic World poster by Mark Englert were given out.[107][108] Audiences at the convention were disappointed by the lack of Jurassic World footage; what they thought to be footage for the film was a teaser trailer announcement for Legendary Pictures' upcoming film, Skull Island.[109][110][111] The film was marketed with the tagline "The park is open".[112]

Two viral marketing websites, one for the fictional Masrani Global Corporation and one for the Jurassic World theme park, were launched on November 17, 2014.[113] The Masrani website was created by Jack Anthony Ewins and Timothy Glover, two Jurassic Park fans who had earlier created a website for the fictional Patel Corporation. Khan was initially reported to be playing a park owner with the surname Patel; after some fans mistook the Patel website for an official website associated with the film, Universal hired Ewins and Glover in April 2014 to design the official Masrani website and to add their own backstory details to it.[114][115]

The Masrani website included information that was absent from the film; it contained details of the company's purchase of InGen and about the park's origins.[116] The Masrani website also included videos showing D'Onofrio and Wong talking in-character about the fictional company.[117][118] Paleontologist Brian Switek was hired in early 2015 to ensure the accuracy of dinosaur information on the film's theme park website.[119] Trevorrow wrote fictional customer comments for the theme park website; he said, "It was then that I realized I'd gone too far down the rabbit hole".[14] Closed circuit video shown on the control room monitors was filmed during production and was also added to the theme park website.[120]

A short teaser trailer was released online on November 23, 2014.[121] The first full trailer was released online on November 25, 2014;[122] it had initially been scheduled to air on NBC two days later during a Thanksgiving football game.[121][123] A television advertisement for the film premiered during Super Bowl XLIX on February 1, 2015.[124] A clip from the film was aired on MTV on April 8, 2015,[125][126] and depicted the character Owen arguing with Claire about the treatment of the park's dinosaurs.[127] Film director and writer Joss Whedon criticized the clip, calling it "'70s-era sexist" and, referring to Pratt's and Howard's characters, stated; "She's a stiff, he's a life-force—really? Still?"[127][128][129] Trevorrow later stated he was not bothered by Whedon's comments and that "to be honest, I don't totally disagree with him. I wonder why [Universal] chose a clip like that, that shows an isolated situation within a movie that has an internal logic. That starts with characters that are almost archetypes, stereotypes that are deconstructed as the story progresses."[130] Howard also considered the clip to be a marketing mistake.[129]

Later in April 2015, three new posters for the film were released during a three-day period leading up to the premiere of the final trailer.[131][132] Trevorrow was disappointed with Universal because he felt the trailers showed "far more of this movie than I would have ever wanted". Trevorrow stated that because of the film's cost, the trailers included scenes Universal felt were necessary to ensure its financial success after the studio's disappointment with Jurassic Park III's box-office performance.[133] Universal spent $34.9 million on television advertisements for the film.[134] Companies including Kellogg's, Dairy Queen and Barbasol served as promotional partners for the film,[135] and Lego and Hasbro released toys based on it.[136][137][138][139] Two video games, Lego Jurassic World and Jurassic World: The Game, were released in 2015.[140][141] Tippett Studio worked with Universal and Efexio to create an application titled "Jurassic World Mobile MovieMaker",[142] which adds images of dinosaurs to a background photograph.[143]

ReleaseEdit

The first premiere of Jurassic World was held on May 29, 2015, at the Grand Rex cinema in Paris, France.[144] The film was theatrically released in 66 territories from June 10 to 12.[145] In North America, advance screenings were held at Majestic 10 Cinemas in Williston, Vermont on the 10th,[146] before opening two days later in 4,273 venues, the largest-ever screen count for Universal.[147][148] The film was released in Japan on August 5; the last market in which it was released.[149]

Worldwide, Jurassic World was released across 809 IMAX theaters—364 of which were in North America—making it the third-largest worldwide release for any movie in IMAX's history and the largest day-and-date IMAX release ever.[150][151][152] Universal relaunched the film in IMAX 3D in theaters for one week on August 28, 2015, in the United States and Canada.[153]

Home mediaEdit

Jurassic World was released on DVD, Blu-ray, and Blu-ray 3D on October 20, 2015.[154] Upon release, it sold nearly three million Blu-ray and DVD units in its first week, making it the highest-selling home entertainment live-action film; both for Universal and of 2015. Across all digital and physical formats, Jurassic World collected $82.6 million in its first week.[155][156] At the end of 2015, it was named the second-highest-selling video of the year in the UK, selling 1.05 million copies since its release. It was the third-highest-selling DVD and the second-highest-selling Blu-ray in the country.[157] Jurassic World is included in the Jurassic Park 4K UHD Blu-Ray collection, which was released on May 22, 2018.[158]

It also scored the biggest opening for Universal in nine countries, including Australia, China, Ecuador, France, Hong Kong, and Malta.[145] In China, it grossed $17.77 million on its opening day (including $1.39 million from midnight runs), which is the tenth-biggest of all time and went on to earn $100.1 million in its opening weekend, which is the third-biggest of all time.[145][213][214][215] It also scored the second-biggest IMAX opening there with $11.8 million.[145] Following China, its largest openings outside of the U.S. and Canada occurred in the UK, Ireland and Malta ($30.1 million),[216] France and the Maghreb region ($14.7 million),[217] Mexico ($14.6 million),[218] South Korea ($14.2 million)[219] and Japan ($13 million).[145][149][220][221] In South Korea, the film was released during the 2015 MERS outbreak, which resulted in a fall in film attendance from late May 2015; local film distributors changed or postponed local films' release dates. Because U.S. film studios are debarred from altering their scheduled dates, the film had to be released on its scheduled date.[222]

In 25 countries, Jurassic World became the highest-grossing film in the Jurassic Park film series.[145] IMAX tickets sales grossed $42.1 million as of June 21, 2015.[210] In total earnings, its largest markets outside of the U.S. were China with $228 million; the UK, Ireland and Malta ($97.8 million); Japan ($69.2 million); South Korea ($41.79 million); Mexico ($41.73 million); India ($24.07 million) and Germany ($41.6 million).[223][224][225][226][227][228]

Critical responseEdit

On review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, Jurassic World has an approval rating of 72% based on 336 reviews and an average rating of 6.65/10. The site's critical consensus reads, "Jurassic World can't match the original for sheer inventiveness and impact, but it works in its own right as an entertaining -- and visually dazzling -- popcorn thriller."[229] On Metacritic, the film has a score of 59 out of 100 based on 49 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[230] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A" on an A+ to F scale.[183]

Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian gave the film four stars out of five and said it is a "terrifically enjoyable and exciting summer spectacular" and "savvy, funny, ridiculous in just the right way".[231] Robbie Collin of The Telegraph also awarded it four stars, deeming it a worthy sequel to the original Jurassic Park and calling it "methodically paced and shot with an awestruck visual sense that's pure Spielberg".[232] Peter Travers of Rolling Stone gave it three stars out of four and wrote; "It's not the cynical, cash-in cheesefest you feared. OK, Jurassic World is a little of that. But this state-of-the-art dino epic is also more than a blast of rumbling, roaring, 'did you effing see that!' fun." He praised Trevorrow's direction, Pratt's and Howard's performances and the effects.[233] Writing for The Hollywood Reporter, Todd McCarthy criticized the romance between Owen and Claire; he said the film is not terribly scary but praised the CGI and score, and wrote that despite its shortcomings it would be appealing to audiences everywhere.[234]

The Associated Press rated the film two stars out of four and called it "an ugly, over-saturated movie" that lacks the "deft sense of wonderment, wit and suspense that guided the original". The review praised the film's score as well as Pratt and Howard's performances.[235] Spielberg said, "To see Jurassic World come to life is almost like seeing Jurassic Park come true,"[236] while Sam Neill also praised the film and its acting.[237] Several news publications, as well as Neill, noted the violence of Zara's death scene, both critically and favourably, with some reviewers expressing concerns about sexism or misogyny in the film's handling of the franchise's first notable depiction of a woman being killed onscreen,[89][90][238][91][239] although Entertainment Weekly wrote, "There's nothing amusing about the demise of Zara, who's as close to 'real people' as Jurassic World gets, and it's that unsettling quality about her death that more Hollywood disaster epics need in order to reclaim their visceral emotional prowess".[240] Additionally, several news outlets, including The New York Times, New York and Slate, considered the film's depiction of Claire,[129] including her use of high heels throughout the film, to be sexist.[241][242][243] UK film website Movie Metropolis called Jurassic World a tasteful homage to the original but said it lacks some of that film's soul and rated it four stars out of five.[244]

Several journalists have noted plot and character similarities between Jurassic World and the 1999 film Deep Blue Sea. Christopher Rosen, Senior News Director at Entertainment Weekly, tweeted that "Jurassic World is my favorite Deep Blue Sea remake of 2015".[245] Entertainment website Dark Horizons stated in its coverage of Jurassic World that "some aren't warming to the Deep Blue Sea meets Jaws 3-D storyline",[246] while entertainment website Flickering Myth posted the story "Deja Vu: Isn't Jurassic World just Deep Blue Sea with dinosaurs?", which outlined plot and character similarities between the two films.[247] Pop culture website The Complex stated Jurassic World is "basically going to be the big budget Deep Blue Sea re-imagining that we all deserve. Scientists, driven by a cold near-heartless leader, tinkering with already smart animals. The beast whisperer who warns against fucking with nature. It's like watching Saffron Burrows and Thomas Jane flirt all over again."[248]

AccoladesEdit

In December 2015, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences placed Jurassic World on its shortlist of potential nominees for the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects at the 88th Academy Awards[249] but was not nominated for an Academy Award.

ControversiesEdit

Scientific accuracyEdit

A Twitter post attributed to Trevorrow stated there would be no feathered dinosaurs in the film.[257] The first Jurassic Park film was lauded by paleontologists for depicting dinosaurs accurately and in keeping with the science of the time, but later discoveries have refuted the view of dinosaurs as invariably scaly creatures. Jurassic World was criticized for purposely ignoring new discoveries and knowledge. Several dinosaur researchers called the film a "dumb monster movie" for failing to include new discoveries about the creatures; for example, the feathers or proto-feathers that covered some dinosaurs and the way Velociraptor held its front limbs.[258][259][260] Since the film's teaser trailer release, many paleontologists expressed their disappointment on Twitter, Facebook and their own blogs, calling the dinosaurs that were featured a retrograde step from the original Jurassic Park.[261]

In response to these criticisms, Trevorrow said, "the film is scientifically 'inaccurate' because it is a science-fiction movie and not a documentary".[259] The filmmakers had planned to depict feathered dinosaurs early in the film's development.[262] A fictional review on the film's theme park website speculates that the use of amphibian DNA to fill the gaps in the dinosaur DNA—a plot point in the original novel and film—prevented the dinosaurs from growing feathers.[263]

Writing credits disputeEdit

At the end of March 2015, a Writers Guild of America (WGA) arbitration panel ruled that Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver would receive credit for writing the screenplay with Trevorrow and Connolly, who disagreed with the decision,[264][265] although they decided that under WGA rules they had no grounds to appeal. They accepted the ruling on March 31, 2015.[265] On April 2, 2015, it was reported that Universal Pictures originally wanted Trevorrow and Connolly to be credited for the screenplay; they were credited in the film's Super Bowl trailer as the only writers. It was then reported that they appealed the WGA's decision, that they wrote an entirely new screenplay that was not based on Jaffa and Silver's draft, and that they wanted full writing credit for the script.[264]

On April 7, 2015, it was reported that the arbiters had unanimously denied Trevorrow's and Connolly's appeal in a second hearing held on April 3, and that they gave Jaffa and Silver an additional credit for writing the original story. Trevorrow and Connolly appealed the decision.[266] Later that day, Trevorrow said he and Connolly had not appealed the WGA's original decision to give Jaffa and Silver co-credit for the screenplay, despite disagreeing with it. He also stated that he and Connolly were not informed of the second hearing until it was already over.[265] The credits of the screenplay ultimately went to both writing teams; Jaffa and Silver were also being credited for writing the original story.[265]

Other mediaEdit

SequelsEdit

A sequel to Jurassic World, titled Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, was released in June 2018.[267] Trevorrow and Connolly returned to write the script for the sequel, which features Pratt and Howard reprising their roles.[268] Trevorrow said in 2014, "We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story".[96] In May 2015, Trevorrow confirmed he would not direct a sequel,[269] and he acted as an executive producer with Spielberg.[268] J. A. Bayona directed the film, which will serve as the middle chapter of a planned Jurassic World trilogy.[270]

An untitled sixth film, known as Jurassic World 3, is scheduled for release on June 11, 2021.[271] Trevorrow will direct the film,[272] and write the screenplay with Emily Carmichael. It is based on a story by Trevorrow and Connolly. Trevorrow will also serve as executive producer with Steven Spielberg; Marshall and Crowley will serve as producers.[273][274][275] Pratt and Howard will reprise their roles for the film,[272] and Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern will reprise their characters as well.[276]

Lego projectsEdit

Several Lego animated projects have been released, including Lego Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape, a 2016 short film;[277] Lego Jurassic World: The Secret Exhibit, a 2018 television special; and Lego Jurassic World: Legend of Isla Nublar, a 2019 miniseries.

Animated seriesEdit

In June 2019, Netflix announced a 3D-animated TV series titled Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. It will be a co-production between Netflix and DreamWorks Animation, and is scheduled for a release sometime in 2020.[278]

  58. ^ de Semlyen, Nick (April 30, 2015). "Jurassic World set visit". Empire. U.K. p. 82. Trevorrow was asked to cook up his own story. But there were a couple of concepts that he wanted to keep. One was Sayles's audacious notion of raptors working alongside humans. "Dinosaurs hunting down drug lords? I couldn't go there," he says. "But I could rewind all the way back and make a movie about the very tenuous relationship between man and a vicious animal. [...] The other very cool idea, which came from Spielberg himself: what if John Hammond's dream of a fully functioning dinosaur theme park came true?"
  59. ^ de Semlyen, Nick (April 30, 2015). "Jurassic World set visit". Empire. U.K. pp. 81–82. In 2007 [sic], news broke of a Jurassic Park 4 script by American indie king John Sayles, in which trained raptors take on a drug baron's army. The project stalled, but this nucleus of an idea stuck around, making its way into the next commissioned draft, by Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes' Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver. And this is where Colin Trevorrow, the man chosen to head up Jurassic World, comes in. [...] One can only imagine how excited he was to be presented with the latest script by the threequel's producers. He sat down to read it. Flipped through every page. Then said thanks, but no thanks. "It was as difficult to decline as you'd think," he recalls. "But I knew I couldn't make that film. So I said, 'I'm honoured, but if we're going to do this we really need to build a different movie that can also be called Jurassic Park 4."
