Director Colin Trevorrow says Jeff Goldblum’s return for ‘Jurassic World 2’ will please Michael Crichton fans

During the promotion of The Book of Henry, director Colin Trevorrow previewed the Jurassic World sequel, now officially named Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, by promoting the return of Jeff Goldblum.

Trevorrow appeared on MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast to dish on what to expect for Jurassic World 2, the 2018 sequel to the 2015 monster hit Jurassic World, which Trevorrow directed.

Trevorrow revealed that while the first Jurassic World was a throwback to the original Jurassic Park film, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will have more of a tribute to the Michael Crichton books upon which the series is based — thank Jeff Goldblum for that.

“You know, I did rely on [Michael] Crichton for a lot. I used a lot of Crichton dialogue. Maybe one of my highlights of this whole process is Goldblum. Jeff Goldblum called me – and I’m not going to do an impression – but he was like, ‘Look, I’ve added a couple of things, and I thought I’d perform it for you.’ [Laughs] Oh, great, okay. So, we sat on the phone for an hour as he ran these lines, and I talked about it. And, I mean, that’s – it was almost better than being there on set. It was great.”

So in addition to some classic dialogue reminiscent of Crichton’s 1990 Jurassic Park sci-fi novel, we can expect Goldblum Goldbluming all throughout Jurassic World 2.

“It’s just deeper, more character-based, and it definitely leans into suspense, especially in the second half… It does have the big action in the middle. There’s a sequence in the middle that I’ve been watching – I mean, I watch dailies every day – but I’ve started to see stuff come together, and it’s just insane.”

Trevorrow works toward Star Wars 9.

In addition to Jeff Goldblum returning as Dr. Ian Malcolm from Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, BD Wong will return for Jurassic World 2 alongside franchise newcomers Toby Jones, Daniella Pineda, Justice Smith, Rafe Spall, Ted Levine, James Cromwell and Geraldine Chaplin.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hits theaters June 22, 2018.
