While out promoting Jurassic World, director Colin Trevorrow explained why we won’t be seeing him back in the director’s chair when a sequel rolls around. At the film’s Paris premiere, Trevorrow likened his vision for the relaunched series to that of the original Star Wars Trilogy. He thinks one of the strengths of those films was that each film had its own director, and they were able to create their own footprints on the mythology.
That’s not to say that Trevorrow intends to walk away entirely. “I would remain involved in some way, but not as director,” he told BadTaste.
At this point, it’d be hard to say whether that’s a good or a bad thing. Jurassic World doesn’t come out until June 12, and while there’s a definite sense of anticipation, it remains to be seen whether or not this film will catapult the franchise back to top of the mountain or be another Jurassic Park 3.
What do you think? Where’s your excitement level right now?
