Finally! A major step forward in the saga that is Jurassic Park 4. Hold on to your butts because fans now have an official plot for the new film! Earlier this month we learned that Jurassic Park 4 (directed by Colin Trevorrow) will be released in 2015 and has a tentative new logo for the flick, pictured above. Joblo.com has a source that has revealed the plot and story concept for the dinosaur sequel that should quash any fears of the movie being a let down.
I am SO ready for this. All I need now is a confirmation of the original cast returning.
JURASSIC PARK 4, set in present day Isla Nublar, is now an actual theme park, as originally intended by John Hammond in the first film. It garners 10 million visitors per year and is completely safe – until it’s not. The park itself is described as very Sea World-esque and includes an area called the Isla Nublar Lagoon. That means underwater dino’s for the first time. No indication of what kind, but there’s concept art showing one of the aquatic dino’s, as part of a show, jumping out of the lagoon and eating a strung up great white shark like it was a fish for a dolphin at sea world.
As part of a show, you ask? That’s right, folks, this will feature “tamed” dino’s. In fact, our source indicated that the usually menacing Velociraptors (which will finally be muzzled, along with the T-Rex – until they’re not) will actually be used to help fight the threat, which begins in the form of a new dinosaur, not seen in any of the previous films (and not disclosed to us) shows to be much smarter than originally thought and is the main cause of havoc breaking out at the park.
So, to sum it all up, JURASSIC PARK 4 will take place back on Isla Nublar with a fully operational dinosaur theme park (I’m sure no expense was spared) that’s both prosperous and safe, until a new dinosaur figures out a way to wreak havoc, causing the use of the now tamed Velociraptors (and T-Rex? Unclear) as a means to fighting the threat.No details on human characters (new or returning) but I’m sure they’ll play a big part in the grand scheme of things. Overall, this sounds like a kick ass way to go and a solid way to continue the story, while almost rebooting in a way. It sounds like screenwriters Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver have nailed down a great concept for the 4th entry and I’m now officially excited to return to Jurassic Park.
I may just start to weep. I’ve been following the updates on this sequel for years and I’m so thrilled things are finally happening. Jurassic Park is one of my favorite movies of all time and I can’t wait to see what they do with the franchise.
