Jeff Goldblum will return in the Jurassic World sequel

Jurassic Park Jeff Goldblum
Jurassic World was a surprisingly fun reboot/continuation of the originally Jurassic Park trilogy. It has just officially signed Jeff Goldblum to join the upcoming sequel to the film. To say it was a blockbuster is an understatement. The film brought in nearly $1.7 billion at the box office, making it the 4th biggest box office hit in history.

The sequel to Jurassic World will bring back Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, with J.A. Bayona as the director. Jeff Goldblum will reprise his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm, a mathematician who specializes in a branch of mathematics known as “Chaos Theory” that was imperative to the original Jurassic Park film. Not to mention, he starred in the sequel, Jurassic Park: The Lost World. 

In September 2016, writer Colin Trevorrow (via Jurassic Outpost) said that “the film would be based on concepts from the novels, and stated that the film would be heavily inspired by the idea that, a mistake made a long time ago just can’t be undone.” Trevorrow stated that Hawaii would be used as a primary filming location. (It began shooting in February of 2017.) The U.K. shooting would be limited to the studios. Trevorrow said that the film will feature many dinosaurs that were not seen in previous films. He also denies that the film’s story would involve militarized dinosaurs, which would only have a mention in the film.

The Jurassic World sequel will be darker

Director J.A. Bayona has compared the sequel to The Empire Strikes Back and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (via JurassicWorld2movie), which were both darker than their predecessors.

There is no information on the film’s synopsis yet, but if it is a darker follow-up to the predecessor, then we can probably get an idea of what to expect.

Jurassic World‘s synopsis:

Located off the coast of Costa Rica, the Jurassic World luxury resort provides a habitat for an array of genetically engineered dinosaurs, including the vicious and intelligent Indominus rex. When the massive creature escapes, it sets off a chain reaction that causes the other dinos to run amok. Now, it’s up to a former military man and animal expert (Chris Pratt) to use his special skills to save two young brothers and the rest of the tourists from an all-out, prehistoric assault.

The Jurassic World sequel hits theaters on June 22, 2018.
