Jurassic World Dominion is the latest chapter in the franchise started by Steven Spielberg with jurassic park. Director Colin Trevorrow, who also directed jurassic world, is responsible for completing this series satisfactorily. Trevorrow also handles characters that Spielberg has worked on before, and Trevorrow made sure to get some helpful advice from the expert himself.
“Jurassic World Dominion” concludes the story established by “Jurassic Park”
Steven Spielberg presented a revolutionary film in 1993 with jurassic park. The dinosaurs looked amazing and still look great almost 30 years later. While viewers loved seeing the dinosaurs come to life, the characters were also memorable for many. Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Dr. Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) stole the hearts of many as endearing and charming heroes.
The three actors return for Jurassic World Dominion, joining the new cast that includes Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. This time the legacy cast is led by Trevorrow, who breathed new life into the franchise with jurassic world in 2015. Although Trevorrow proved he could make an entertaining Jurassic movie, he still got some advice from Spielberg, who is truly one of the greatest directors of all time.
Colin Trevorrow Shares Advice He Got From ‘Jurassic Park’ Director Steven Spielberg
Colin Trevorrow and Spielberg have made two films within the Jurassic franchise. In an interview with The Hollywood ReporterTrevorrow shared that he had many conversations with the director about directing Jurassic World movies. He revealed the advice Spielberg gave him which is to always remember that these characters are real people in extraordinary situations.
“Well, his advice often seems almost obvious, but as you skim through the film and remember what he said, you realize he actually gave you the key,” Trevorrow said. “And in this movie, in particular, it was ‘Remember the characters. Remember they are humans. They are real people, scientists, parents who are experiencing something spectacular, fantastic. So that’s why he’s so good. Real people in the real world, like HEY Indiana Jones is a teacher who makes mistakes and sometimes fails and gets hurt. He created a different hero than what had been done up until that point when he started introducing us to these real people in real worlds. So [Dominion] isn’t a superhero movie, and while I enjoy them, it’s a movie about our world with a different thing.
One thing Spielberg has done so well in his career is create heroes who are always tied to an audience. Being chased by dinosaurs is a terrifying situation that would be difficult for any normal person.
Colin Trevorrow Says Spielberg Approved That Final Chapter
Getting praise from a director like Spielberg is a big deal and Colin Trevorrow says he was “very moved” by Jurassic World Dominion. In an interview with IndiewireTrevorrow says Spielberg enjoyed the way the film handled its characters and gave them a satisfying conclusion.
“He’s seen it, and he’s very moved by the presence of these characters right now, not just after all these years, but at this point in our history,” Trevorrow said. “I think he always knew that I was really hoping to justify why these sequels existed in the first place, and I hope I did that for him and for the audience.”
Jurassic World Dominion is now in theaters.
