Go Behind-The-Scenes In New Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Featurette

If you weren't already jumping out of your seat for the first Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer tomorrow, a new behind-the-scenes featurette will definitely get you pumped. The latest glimpse at the dino drama shows off the goofy antics of stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, while also giving a hint at how the film will move the franchise into the future.

The featurette gives a few new glimpses at the film, including our first look at Jeff Goldblum's Ian Malcolm back in action, "talking about dinosaurs again." Pratt had a bit of a fanboy moment about working with Goldblum, saying that bringing him on board was "pretty awesome." Malcolm won't be the only big connection to Jurassic Park, either– the movie will also feature James Cromwell as Benjamin Lockwood, the former partner of Richard Attenborough's John Hammond, the original founder of the park.

"This story takes dinosaurs and takes Jurassic World where it's never gone before," Howard says in the featurette. Pratt added that, while the franchise has always been "suspenseful and exciting," Fallen Kingdom will offer the "next chapter" in the saga. "For kids who grow up living dinosaurs, the Jurassic movies are really the vehicle for them to see their dreams realized," said screenwriter Colin Trevorrow. "This movie is different. It's gonna be intense and pretty spectacular." 

Trevorrow added that it was important to him to balance both new and old characters in the sequel, which director J.A. Bayona said is part of the difficulty in making a follow-up film. "The challenge of making a sequel is finding the right balance of what people are expecting and what people will be surprised by," he said. "I love playing with suspense. I like intensity and I love to make the audience feel the total experience." Howard added that Bayona is "a genius when it comes to frightening people." 

Fallen Kingdom, like all of the Jurassic movies, will feature some intense dino action, most of it courtesy of animatronic creatures that you can see artisans crafting in the featurette. "It looks like a real dinosaur," said Howard. "I couldn't help but freak out the entire time. It's like nothing you've ever seen before." One worker on the film promised that there will be "more dinosaurs than you've ever seen before." 

Justice Smith, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Daniella Pineda, Geraldine Chapman, and Ted Levine also star in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which has a June 22, 2018 release date.
