'Jurassic World 2' to Take Cues from Modern Treatment of Animals
There's some real world thematic resonance to come from the sequel to Colin Trevorrow's 2015 hit Jurassic World, and while the director is not returning to direct, he is still heavily involved in the future of the franchise.
“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," Trevorrow said of the film. “The follow-up will tackle concepts ‘more complex’ than the first one, which was a reflection of problems inherent in capitalist society.”
“The second part will be a very different movie that will explore new paths. For that reason, it was clear that it needed to be Bayona who would direct it, in order to have it grow and evolve with his very personal vision.”
