Jurassic World First Photos, Sequel Talk

The first official set photos have arrived from Colin Trevorrow’s “Jurassic World” over at EW.

The shots showcase the lovely Bryce Dallas Howard dressed in white and stepping out on the Hawaiian set which is doubling for Isla Nublar – the Costa Rican island setting of the first “Jurassic Park”. Check them out at the bottom of this article.

Trevorrow has also spoken about the film’s potential for sequels, telling Empire that “if they’ll have him” he’d love to return and direct.

More surprising is the reveal that this isn’t just another sequel, or a stand alone reboot either. Instead, “Jurassic World” lays the groundwork and story arcs that can progress into future films:

“We definitely talked about [sequels] a lot. We wanted to create something that would be a little bit less arbitrary and episodic, and something that could potentially arc into a series that would feel like a complete story.”

Trevorrow reveals that actor Omar Sy plays the “best friend” of Chris Pratt’s character in the film, the pair have action scenes together, and the buddy relationship “could be memorable and potentially carry on to future films.”

As for the story itself? Trevorrow says it deals with two species trying to co-exist:

“It’s about alpha dominance and the fact that humans have been the alpha species for a very long time, and so now we’ve brought back another that happened to be the alpha species during its time, and we have to co-exist, so what is that relationship?”

Filming will continue in Hawaii before moving to New Orleans in June.
