After imparting the message that playing god will bring destruction in the first movie, Jurassic World 2 might be all about recognizing that dinosaurs, no matter how dangerous, have a life that must be protected. New evidence suggests that the follow-up to the 2015 box office success will see Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) fighting for dinosaur rights.
A Right To Live Freely and Safely
Jurassic World already hinted a much deeper issue when it was released in 2015. In the midst of running around wearing heels and genetically-engineered killer dinosaurs getting too smart, there was a discussion of possibly using these creatures to fight on behalf of the government.
Pratt‘s character Owen is adamantly opposed to it, but the ending of the movie seems to hint that the destruction of the popular theme park/lab is not the end of solider dinosaurs.
According to Jurassic Outpost, Universal Pictures has recently purchased two new domains that hint the still unknown plot of the sequel. The two domains that are now owned by the studio are IslaNublarRescueMission.com and AllCreaturesHaveRights.com (and .org).
Isla Nublar pertains to the island which the dinosaurs now call home from Jurassic World. Since the park closed down (after the fatal attack of a genetically-engineered super dinosaur), the creatures are just roaming around the island free and far from humans.
The second domain also recalls how certain people want to use dinosaurs as weapons against wars. As Movie Web pointed out, Colin Trevorrow (who penned the sequel’s script) stated in a previous interview that the new franchise is going to parallel the same issues that animals face in the present time.
“The dinosaurs will be a parable of the treatment animals receive today: the abuse, medical experimentation, pets, having wild animals in zoos like prisons, the use the military has made of them, animals as weapons,” the filmmaker stated.
So could it be that the dinosaurs are in danger? It seems so. Jurassic Outpost theorized that the existence of free, breeding, dangerous creatures in a less-secure setting will probably make anyone terrified for their own lives. It is possible that after the tragedy of Jurassic World, governments of the world will try to eradicate the creatures.
The site also pointed out that another clue seems to hint at the plot for Jurassic World 2. A member found an image of a volcano with the word “EPOCH” on JurassicWorld,com. Upon clicking on the link, he was brought to an empty page.
The volcano was a prominent part of the first movie’s marketing. It was featured in toys as well as artworks, brochures, and maps of the island in the movie, but it did not really play a role in the 2015 summer hit.
So Jurassic Outpost speculated that, perhaps, a volcanic eruption is threatening the lives of these dinosaurs. And, Owen and other humans will rally to rescue the creatures and relocate them somewhere safe.
It is unclear how InGen and their plans to fashion dinosaurs into killing weapons fit into the sequel. But another fan speculation claims that a new, more powerful hybrid might be introduced in the upcoming movie.
For now, this remains a theory. Universal, Trevorrow, or Director J.A. Bayona have not announced a title or divulge important plot points for the sequel.
But expect to hear more in the following weeks. The movie has already started filming in London in February. Meanwhile, a release date has been set for Jun. 22, 2018.
Pratt and Howard have officially signed up to reprise their roles. B.D. Wong will also return as Dr. Henry Wu of InGen. Toby Jones, James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Rafe Spall also appear.
