Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is hitting theaters in just over a month, and is going to pick up where the first Jurassic World left off, with genetically-created hybrid dinosaurs as the big bad. But that trend is going to stop here, according to Colin Trevorrow.
That’s right, no hybrid dinosaurs will appear in Jurassic World 3, as Trevorrow confirms the series will be moving away from the genetic editing and back more towards the original intention of the Jurassic Park movies. Let’s take a look at his quote.
“I’m looking forward to, in the third film, getting a little back into the Paleontological, wild animal, true dinosaur nature of all of it.”
The decision to go with genetically-spliced dinosaurs in Jurassic World was an interesting one, but a pretty logical progression from the original Jurassic Park films, in which the dinosaurs were resurrected from preserved DNA found in Amber.
The idea of T-Rex’s with longer arms or flying raptors was enough to sell hardcore fans on the concept, and it should have opened up a whole new world of options for the franchise. So far though, response has been mixed, and so they’re returning to the franchise’s slightly more natural roots.
