Filming Has Wrapped on Jurassic World 2: Fallen Kingdom

Posted 2017/07/10 0 0

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the sequel to the Jurassic World, has finished filming.


The director of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Jurassic World's sequel, JA Bayona tweeted out the fun GIF, confirming that filming has now finished on the follow-up, saying: "This is a wrap for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom! What a journey! Thank you to everyone that made it possible."

The filming of the sequel officially started on February 24th in London and appears to have finished less than 5 months later in Hawaii, which is quite possibly the best place for a production to end. Producer Frank Marshall also tweeted a picture of some stuffed dinosaurs finished filming, humorously referring to them as being the animatronic dinos used in the movie.

Last month, the official title was revealed along with a poster featuring Jeff Goldblum’s iconic character Dr. Ian Malcolm’s line “Life finds a way” as the tagline. Goldblum will, as well publicized, be returning to the franchise.

Chris Pratt returns once more as lead protagonist, the actor saying of the film: “[Fallen Kingdom] is going to be a scarier version, a little bit darker, and will continue to expand and carry the story forward in a way that is really unexpected and you wouldn't have imagined.”

From all we’ve learned, it appears that Jurassic World 2 will explore some complex social and political themes, although Bayona certainly seemed keen to deliver some satisfying entertainment as well.

Bayona previously made the horror movie The Orphanage and the recent drama A Monster Calls. Trevorrow, who directed the first Jurassic World, chose to helm Star Wars: Episode IX instead of this sequel, but he remains on board as a writer and producer.

Trevorrow recently spoke about working with Bayona. "It is by far my favorite creative collaboration that I've ever been involved in," he said. "Bayona is a completely different kind of filmmaker and thinker than I am, yet we do have a lot of things in common. I was able to craft something specifically for another filmmaker that I admire. I built a Spanish horror thriller with dinosaurs in it that I probably wouldn't have built for myself."
