Director Colin Trevorrow reveals when JURASSIC WORLD takes place

Jurassic World

I was just a wee lad when the first Jurassic Park film came out and hit theaters. And I was still wet behind the ears when the sequel arrived to that great film. And then there was that second sequel, which arrived during my more radical years (VIVA LA REVOLUCION!).

That’s a long legacy for a franchise, and something that the fourth film, Jurassic World is looking to embrace.

One Twitter user was concerned with just where the movie takes place, asking director Colin Trevorrow if he could shed light on that and confirm that Jurassic World would not be a reboot. To which the helmer replied:

@pfcbains916 Reboot is a strong word. This is a new sci-fi terror adventure set 22 years after the horrific events of Jurassic Park.

22 years after the first film? Why, that puts it bang on the 2015 release date that the film currently has. That’s a tidbit of good news then, because it’d be nice to see the legacy of Jurassic Park preserved in a new film, as that’s a franchise that is all about history. Maybe this time, they’ve invested in some proper fences to keep those damn raptors out.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
