According to Jurassic Outpost, JURASSIC WORLD 2 will start shooting in February of 2017 back in Hawaii, which doubled for Isla Nublar in the films.
Jurassic World co-writer/director Colin Trevorrow, who is co-writing and producing this sequel, has said that this movie won’t spend a bunch of time on the island like previous movies have because they want to change things up:
“We made [Jurassic World] with the fans very much in mind. And I’m not going to forget that, but we’ve seen a lot of ‘dinosaurs chasing people around on an island’ movies. And I think you guys and the general audience are going to be down to explore where else we can go. Owen is going to be in it, Claire is in it and neither are going to be in the same place we left them in the first movie. And even though Claire is the one who evolves the most over the trilogy, it’s her story that mirrors this changing world. Owen has shit to deal with. They’ve both opened Pandora’s Box in Jurassic World and both of them are responsible for different elements of it. And I think the way these characters are connected to these circumstances of what’s happening, it’s different than previous films. It’s not ‘let’s manufacture a way to get them somewhere’, they’re embedded into it now in a way that us storytellers are able to keep them involved without it feeling contrived.”
Jurassic World 2 hits theaters on June 22, 2018.
