In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, star of both the first Jurassic World and the new movie Bryce Dallas Howard revealed the basic story setup of the new dinosaur movie. We regret to inform you that humans are back on their dinosaur dung.
“[Howard’s character] Claire’s founded an organization, Dinosaur Protection Group, and they’re finding a way to get these dinosaurs off the island,” she says. “She reaches out to Owen Grady [Chris Pratt] to let him know this is happening.”
Howard didn’t elucidate on what the inciting incident that kicks off the inevitable crisis that will happen, but either someone is going to stop the transfer of the dinosaurs and they all get out or someone is going to be incredibly incompetent and they all get out. It’s a Jurassic Park movie, so it could really be either one. At some point in this series, people are going to understand they should just not do anything, at all, period, with the dinosaurs, right?
Her answer does indicate that Claire and Grady did not end up together at the end of Jurassic World, which means their on-again off-again romance will probably be on-again for the service of the movie.
Producer Colin Trevorrow has said that the first trailer for Fallen Kingdom will arrive in two days, so hopefully we’ll find out who forgot to password lock their computer or whatever happens while they’re air transporting dinosaurs.
