Colin Trevorrow is busy filming Jurassic World in Hawaii and then production will shift to New Orleans. We recently posted that fun-to-see Jurassic World dino doc photo, but little is known in terms of the world that Trevorrow is creating… until now.
"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,” he said to /Film.
“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."
He was also quick to point out that a certain internet rumor about dinosaurs that come to the aid of humans is so far off point.
"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,” Trevorrow said.
And we also finally know what Chris Pratt’s character will be doing.
“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."
So, do we really have to wait until June 12, 2015 for this thing? Until then, we can always watch Jurassic Park online to see how the entire thing got going.
