The Jurassic Park franchise has been one of the most successful family-centric movie franchises of all time with four out of its 6 entries crossing the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office.
The latest entry, Jurassic World Dominion was the final movie of the Jurassic World reboot trilogy that began in 2015. While concluding the trilogy, the movie also sought to tie up the decade-long saga that began with the first Steven Spielberg-directed film in 1993.
Despite the thumping box office numbers, reviews for Dominion were lackluster with many suggesting that the franchise had run its course. Although, on the contrary, Colin Trevorrow who has been involved in all three World movies has hinted at the future of the franchise betraying that he intentionally added elements in the latest movie that can set the tone for future films in the dino-verse.
In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Trevorrow betrays how he intentionally tailored Dominion to include open-ends that can be explored by future directors saying; “I particularly did something different than the other films in order to change the DNA of the franchise.
Trevorrow additionally analyzes one of these elements to be the fact that in Dominion, dinosaurs now breed among humans adding; “the previous five films are plots about dinosaurs. This one is a story about characters in a world in which they coexist with dinosaurs.”
As if to across the opinion of critics that it is time for Jurassic to go abolished, Trevorrow define the franchise as “inherently unfranchisable,” however, he seemed to agree that the franchise needed some fresh ideas to move past where it currently is adding; “there presumably should have only been one Jurassic Park – but if we are gonna do it, how can I allow them to tell stories in a world in which dinosaurs exist, as compared to, here’s another reason why we’re going to an island?
