The plot of Universal Pictures' Jurassic World was largely predicated on the creation of a hybrid dinosaur, the Indominus Rex, to attract visitors to the struggling theme park. However, while the upcoming sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, will follow suit with its predecessor by introducing the Indoraptor, executive producer/co-writer Colin Trevorrow has confirmed that the concept of hybrid dinos won't extend to the third installment in the planned trilogy.
“I’m looking forward to, in the third film, getting a little back into the Paleontological, wild animal, true dinosaur nature of all of it," Trevorrow told Total Film. He then definitively added that the Indoraptor will be the last hybrid dinosaur in the Jurassic World trilogy.
The concept of hybrid dinosaurs was introduced to the franchise in 2015's Jurassic World with the aforementioned Indominus Rex -- the result of combined genetic material from such dinosaurs as the Tyrannosaurus and the Velociraptor. From what we've seen in trailers thus far, the Indoraptor appears to be a smaller, equally vicious version of the Indominus, but with the theme park now abandoned, its creation was likely spawned from Vic Hoskins' desire to use dinosaurs as military weapons.
Directed by J.A. Bayona from a script by Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stars Chris Pratt as Owen Grady, Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire Dearing, B.D Wong as Dr. Henry Wu, James Cromwell as Benjamin Lockwood and Jeff Goldblum returning as Dr. Ian Malcolm. The film arrives June 22.
