My Predictions for Jurassic World II
Because the internet is a little low on Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom speculation, I thought i’d add a little of my own. The first trailer hits December 13th, 2017, which is when we’ll have our first chance to make some better informed guesses. Until then, I’m gonna make a couple of maybe not-so-wild guesses at what the next movie in the Jurassic franchise is going to have in store for us. I have no inside information, and so on, and so forth. These aren’t spoilers, just pure conjecture. If i’m right, I will be available for consulting on Jurassic World III at a ridiculously enormous salary. I already have a great idea for the plot too. Read on to see how far I can go with this!
Locating The Fallen Kingdom
Rearranging The Animal Kingdom
Another ‘kingdom’ reference could be referring to the animal kingdom. Humans are currently at the top of the animal kingdom. Of course that’s only because of a giant 6 mile wide asteroid, randomly striking Earth within a particular 30 second window. If dinosaurs were still here, would humans have stayed at the top? I think this is one of the questions that the movie title wants you to think about. The entire Jurassic franchise answers this question though, over and over. Dinosaurs trump man every time. Jurassic Park ends with the Tyrannosaurus Rex roaring, and the human-made banner falling to the ground. Jurassic World ends with the Tyrannosaur roaring over the ‘fallen’ park. It’s very symbolic, I think.
Following The Clues
If we take it a step further, Jurassic Park II: The Lost world takes place largely on an untamed island, with dinosaurs running around out from under human control. Given how closely Jurassic World followed the general story of Jurassic Park, I think Fallen Kingdom may take a few cues from The Lost World. I think we can expect to have an island, or area, with dinosaurs roaming free. If you put it on another island, some world military could just nuke the island and the story would be over. Setting it on the United Kingdom would provide the complication of civilian casualties. Not to mention, having dinosaurs triumph over such an advanced country, continues the theme of the Jurassic franchise.
