Jurassic World 2 To Start Filming Next Year In Hawaii

jurassic-world-006

Jurassic World 2 begins filming next year and will feature at least a few scenes in a familiar tropical setting. The Jurassic Park fansite Jurassic Outpost confirmed that the sequel to last summer's blockbuster hit Jurassic World will begin filming in February 2017 in Hawaii under the production name "Ancient Futures". Hawaii has traditionally been used as a stand in for the fictional Isla Nublar, a Central American island near Costa Rica.

While Jurassic World took place almost exclusively on Isla Nublar/Hawaii, Jurassic World 2 will take place mainly off the island, meaning that the Hawaiian shoot will probably be shorter than usual. Primary filming will be based out of London, although other locales may be used as well.

When speaking about the upcoming sequel, director Colin Trevorrow told Wired Magazine that Jurassic World 2 would focus on the idea of multiple companies cloning dinosaurs. He specifically said that the sequel would not focus on "a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island" as that concept would get stale. It should be noted that the first four Jurassic Park movies all prominently featured dinosaurs chasing people on islands.

Jurassic World 2 is slated to come out on June 22, 2018. Both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will reprise their roles from the first Jurassic World movie.
