  • Peter (og BJ): Colin Trevorrow Strongly Hints At A Lot More Jurassic World Movies To Come
    • Trevorrow told Empire: "This movie clearly takes a real interest in creating new characters that a new generation is going to latch on to”. … "I never knew that this was the ending of the franchise until I saw the marketing. Those guys are brilliant at what they do, but for me I think it might have been clearer if they'd said, 'The end of an era', as opposed to all of it, because regardless of the cynical approach — of course they're gonna want to make more money, which is what 'Jurassic World' was about — a new dinosaur fan is born every day."
    • “I specifically did something different than the other films in order to change the DNA of the franchise. The previous five films are plots about dinosaurs. This one is a story about characters in a world in which they coexist with dinosaurs. For the franchise to be able to move forward — because it’s inherently unfranchisable, there probably should have only been one ‘Jurassic Park’ – but if we’re gonna do it, how can I allow them to tell stories in a world in which dinosaurs exist, as opposed to, here’s another reason why we’re going to an island?”
