Even though Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has yet to hit theaters (it comes out on June 22nd), there is already a plan for the third film in the series. As of now, the movie is set to hit theaters on June 11, 2021, and in an interview about the structure of the trilogy, it sounds like Jurassic architect, Colin Treverrow, is more than willing to throw a little shade towards his almost bosses at Disney where he was setting up to direct Star Wars: Episode IX before being dumped in favor of the return of JJ Abrams.
“Yes, absolutely … I knew where I wanted it to go. I remember telling Steven [Spielberg] even while we were still making the first movie, “This is the beginning. Here is the middle. And here’s the end of the end. This is where we want to go. I feel like that kind of design is crucial to a franchise like this if you really want to bring people along with you and make sure they stay interested. It needs to be thought through on that level. It can’t be arbitrary, especially if we want to turn this into a character-based franchise with people who you lean in to follow what they’re going to do.
“At the end of this movie, it’s not a cliffhanger, but it’s designed for people who want to know what’s going to happen next, whereas the earlier Jurassic Park movies had pretty clear definitive endings. They were pretty much episodic. In working with Derek Connolly, my co-writer, we were also thinking about where it was going to go in the future.”
It has been a common complaint from many of the new Star Wars trilogy detractors that the saga now feels like there no real plan and Rian Johnson abandoned any structure that JJ Abrams had set up in The Force Awakens.
