Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom crossed an important milestone now becoming the 35th film to cross a billion dollars worldwide and the third this year alongside Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther. The film was directed by J.A. Bayona after the first film in the franchise reboot was directed by Coin Trevorrow who also produced and co-wrote the sequel. Now he is set to take the director seat once again for the third installment of Jurassic World, but there lies the problem.
A new fan petition on Change.org has hit the web calling for Trevorrow to be removed and replaced by Bayona. The petition sites that fans don’t want to go back to Trevorrow’s “uninspired style” and sites the filmmakers departing from Star Wars: Episode IX as a reason for his replacement.
You can read the full petition below:
“As long time fans of Jurassic Park and Jurassic World, we believe that director J. A. Bayona took an important step in the right direction with the franchise. After Fallen Kingdom, which ended up being a darker and more mature chapter than its predecessor, there would be no point in going back to Colin Trevorrow’s uninspired style.”
“Trevorrow’s firing from Star Wars: Episode IX, along with the low production value of his indie movie The Book of Henry and his communication mistakes during Fallen Kingdom’s marketing campaign, is a testament to his inadequacy. He’s proven himself unable to manage such a large and complex project. On the other hand, Bayona’s directorial skill and sensitivity are clearly perceivable and could give us another great episode, driving the franchise towards excellence and setting up a bright future for our beloved dinosaurs.”
Bayona’s sequel was without a doubt better than Jurassic World, I would also agree that it would be a good idea to keep Bayona on third installment if possible. Especially with the fact that the story is going to be featuring the dinosaurs off the island and among the general population.
