So last week a rather odd post appeared on the website io9 claiming to spill the beans on plot details surrounding the forthcoming Jurassic World movie, the fourth film for the Jurassic Park franchise.
The content of the post was addressed with a fair amount of salt, but now it appears that large elements of the reveal were in fact accurate after director Colin Trevorrow was forced to clarify. Speaking directly to movie website /Film, he explained:
“Yes. Jurassic World takes place in a fully functional park on Isla Nublar. 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. 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.”
As you can see from above the concept art for the island of Isla Nublar, created by artist Nathan Schroeder imagines what the park would look like 22 years on from the original events and as Trevorrow continued to clarify a park full of living dinosaurs has now become a tad passé:
“What if, despite previous disasters, they built a new biological preserve where you could see dinosaurs walk the earth…and what if people were already kind of over it? We imagined a teenager texting his girlfriend with his back to a T-Rex behind protective glass. For us, that image captured the way much of the audience feels about the movies themselves. “We’ve seen CG dinosaurs. What else you got?” Next year, you’ll see our answer.”
