With production well underway on the much anticipated Jurassic World, director Colin Trevorrow set straight some rumors about the film that have popped on online. Read on for details regarding the June 12, 2015 release!

“‘Jurassic World’ takes place in a fully functional park on Isla Nublar,” Trevorrow confirms. “It sees more than 20,000 visitors every day. You arrive by ferry from Costa Rica. It has elements of a biological preserve, a safari, a zoo, and a theme park. There is a luxury resort with hotels, restaurants, nightlife and a golf course. And there are dinosaurs. Real ones. You can get closer to them than you ever imagined possible. It’s the realization of John Hammond’s dream, and I think you’ll want to go there.”

Trevorrow goes on to reiterate that the story takes place 22 years after the events of Jurassic Park and explains that the script came about while trying to incorporate two important themes: economic greed and mankind’s relationship with modern technology.

“Our relationship with technology has become so woven into our daily lives,” he explains. “We’ve become numb to the scientific miracles around us. We take so much for granted… What if, despite previous disasters, they built a new biological preserve where you could see dinosaurs walk the earth…and what if people were already kind of over it? We imagined a teenager texting his girlfriend with his back to a T-Rex behind protective glass. For us, that image captured the way much of the audience feels about the movies themselves. ‘We’ve seen CG dinosaurs. What else you got?’ Next year, you’ll see our answer.”

Trevorrow goes on to correct a recent internet rumor that suggested that we’ll see “good” dinosaurs in Jurassic World.”There’s no such thing as good or bad dinosaurs,” he says. “There are predators and prey. The T-Rex in Jurassic Park took human lives, and saved them. No one interpreted her as good or bad. This film is about our relationship with animals, how we react to the threat they pose to our dominance on earth as a species. We hunt them, we cage them in zoos, we admire them from afar and we try to assert control over them. Chris Pratt’s character is doing behavioral research on the raptors. They aren’t trained, they can’t do tricks. He’s just trying to figure out the limits of the relationship between these highly intelligent creatures and human beings.”

He also confirms that the film will feature a brand new species.

“There will be one new dinosaur created by the park’s geneticists,” he says. “The gaps in her sequence were filled with DNA from other species, much like the genome in the first film was completed with frog DNA. This creation exists to fulfill a corporate mandate—they want something bigger, louder, with more teeth. And that’s what they get.”
