One of the biggest films that we are looking forward to in 2018 is director J. A. Bayona and writer/producer Colin Trevorrow’ Jurassic World 2: Fallen Kingdom.
While some fans took to social media to express their feelings that the new Fallen Kingdom trailer has an extremely similar feeling to Jurassic World. Trevorrow promises that the sequel may have a similar look, the two are very different stories. He has also mentioned that he still intends for Fallen Kingdom to be part of a trilogy.

It looks like it is [similar to The Lost World] because they all go to a fog-covered, scary island with dinosaurs on it, but it goes to a very, very different place than anyone expects,” Trevorrow stated during a recent video interview. “Really the heart and soul of the movie, the turn of the story, is not what we’ve shown in this trailer. It’s very much not like The Lost World.”

In the film, “it’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment.  Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.
When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.”
Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Jeff Goldblum are set to reprise their previous roles. Justice Smith, James Cromwell, and Toby Jones co-star. The script was co-written by Trevorrow who directed Jurassic World, and Derek Connolly.

Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley join executive producers Steven Spielberg and Trevorrow who produced Jurassic World as well. Belén Atienza also serves as a producer.

“Life finds a way” when Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opens in theaters on June 22, 2018.
