Jurassic World Is Current, NOT A Reboot

Filmmaker Colin Trevorrow has shot down one rumor regarding “Jurassic World,” the fourth film in the series and the first one he is directing.

That rumor? That the project isn’t a sequel but rather a reboot. Turns out, that’s not exactly accurate. In a tweet, Trevorrow says:

“Reboot is a strong word. This is a new sci-fi terror adventure set 22 years after the horrific events of Jurassic Park”.

That confirms the film will be set in contemporary times as the film is opening in 2015, twenty-two years after the 1993 release of the first film.
