With the second season of ‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’ finally making its way to Netflix this Friday, director Colin Trevorrow has shared a few details about the upcoming feature film ‘Jurassic World: Dominion.’
The 44-year-old filmmaker, who also produced the spinoff series (alongside Steven Spielberg) opened up on details about the animated series’ new season and how it will connect to Dominion, per Digitalspy.
“It’s important to me, out of respect for the writers who are continuing to expand and create, to recognize [Camp Cretaceous] as clearly its own story and its own show,” said Trevorrow in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“But this season — and if we’re granted further opportunities to tell the story that we have [in season 3] — will keep weaving into the larger story and really inform some things, even in Dominion that will connect to discoveries made that I’m really excited about.”
According to Digitalspy, Trevorrow also revealed that ‘Jurassic World: Dominion,’ which wrapped filming in November 2020, will reportedly act as a “culmination” of the entire series. “To me, [Dominion] is a culmination of one story that’s been told,” he added.
Colin Trevorrow further noted, “When you got to the end of the Jurassic Park trilogy, it may not have been as clear in what the complete story of those three movies was because they were a bit more episodic in the way that they were approached.”
“But this trilogy is not that way. It’s very much a serialized story.”
“What was important for me was, when you watch Dominion, you really feel like you are learning how much of a story that first set of movies were and how everything that happened in those movies actually informs what ultimately is able to happen in this,” he continued.
“If kids who are born today are going to be presented with six Jurassic Park movies – you hope the parents will buy them the box set – you hope they are going to get to feel like they watch one long story.”
“What these movies are is changing in a way,” Trevorrow added. “All of the Jurassic movies have fundamentally been about people who go to an island and there are dangerous dinosaurs there who very well may harm them.”
“As we take it into a new place where it’s about humans and dinosaurs sharing the planet as we do with animals, it gives us an opportunity to make more character stories with people you know and love and care about.”
‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’ Season 2 is set after the events of 2015’s ‘Jurassic World’ and follows a group of kids who are trapped on the other side of Isla Nublar after dinosaurs wreak havoc on the island.
Meanwhile, plot details for the upcoming ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ are still kept under wraps. But the third film will surely follow the story of ‘Fallen Kingdom’ which saw dinosaurs escaping into the mainland.
Its star-studded cast includes Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Justice Smith, Jake Johnson, Daniella Pineda, Omar Sy, Dichen Lachman, Scott Haze, DeWanda Wise, and Mamoudou Athie.
The film is set to release on June 10, 2022.
