Jurassic World 3: Colin Trevorrow Shoots Down “Dinosaur War” Hopes

At the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, it looked like a large scale 'man vs dinosaur' story was on the horizon...

Spoilers ahead for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom!

The closing moments of 2018’s jaw-snapping blockbuster Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom saw a concerning amount of dinosaurs, some of them pretty damn dangerous, being unleashed upon an unsuspecting planet, after a showdown between Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, a small clone, and some bad men who wanted to sell the resurrected creatures at auction.

But for anyone getting their hopes up that the third instalment in the rebooted franchise will feature an all out war between man and beast …don’t.

Colin Trevorrow, who is returning to the Jurassic juggernaut to helm the third one, has nixed the idea that we might see a world overrun by genetically smarter dinosaurs.

“I just have no idea what would motivate dinosaurs to terrorize a city,” Trevorrow told Jurassic Outpost. “They can’t organise. Right now we’ve got lethal predators in wild areas surrounding cities all over the world. They don’t go pack hunting for humans in urban areas. The world I get excited about is the one where it’s possible that a dinosaur might run out in front of your car on a foggy backroad, or invade your campground looking for food. A world where dinosaur interaction is unlikely but possible—the same way we watch out for bears or sharks.”

The director went on to add that “We hunt animals, we traffic them, we herd them, we breed them, we invade their territory and pay the price, but we don’t go to war with them. If that was the case, we’d have lost that war a long time ago.”

This is certainly in line with previous comments he made about Jurassic World 3 back in April, when he described it as a “science thriller”:

“If I could contextualise each film, I would say Jurassic World was an action adventure, Fallen Kingdom is kind of a horror suspense film, and Jurassic World 3 will be a science thriller in the same way that Jurassic Park was.”

Jurassic World 3 is set for release on June 11, 2021.
