I don't think the CGI artists had ever even seen the first three films when they animated it. Maybe that's why Colin gave this excuse knowing it was sub par: "I mean, we took the original design and obviously, technology has changed. So, it’s going to move a little bit differently, but it’ll move differently because it’s older. And we’re giving her some scars and we’re tightening her skin. So, she has that feeling of, like, an older Burt Lancaster. And this movie is her Unforgiven."

Frank Marshall basically confirmed on his Twitter it is the same Rex from JP & JW! Cool

What else would have it been

They aren't going to acknowledge the existence of Sorna anymore (not except maybe in passing line) and the whole film is probably/likely taking place entirely on Nublar again anyway (I will be SHOCKED if not at this point), so all that is left is the old nostalgia Rex.

Only part of the story is taking place on Nublar, Colin confirmed this in an interview last year. Probably the first half at most will take place on Nublar & the then the rest of the story will happen somewhere on the mainland.

Where exactly did he say that? You mean this cryptic exchange which could be interpreted in many ways and doesn't prove or disprove anything?

"[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island. That'll get old real fast. -- I feel like the idea that this isn’t always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment. And when you look back at nuclear power and how that started, the first instinct was to weaponize it and later on we found it could be used for energy.""

Of course I hope for the Nublar bit to be over in like the first 5 minutes to get it finally over with it, but I don't think so.

Btw the Trevorrow lines are bit funny considering he had just directed fourth movie of a franchise that was still doing the very same thing he labeled of being "old". And also JP3 had had nothing to do with theme parks anymore, and even as early as JP Dodgson's company probably was doing the corporate espionage likely not for entertainment purposes, but other motives. They just weren't explained

He said it in an interview with Jurassic Outpost in a podcast last year.

Also here is the exterior of the mansion they are building which has now been dressed up with my garden props out the front :

https://twitter.com/Brycenator100/status/849294883391242242/photo/1

This doesn't look like it will be a scene on the island, I'd say on the mainland.

This scene is set to involve the cast arriving at the mansion, a scene talking place inside (which they have been filming lately on the soundstages) before they flee in response to a dramatic event. Filming at this location (Hawley Common) will start in a few weeks.

Nice to see that the T. Rex has been confirmed.

Wish it was a different Rex though. The design of Rexy in JW left a lot to be desired. I mean, I understand what they were going for by making her skinnier/leaner and ragged looking, but I want the Rex in JW2 to be massive, majestic, powerful, and above all else, that it behaves like an animal.

Fingers crossed for another Rex I suppose, or at least that Rexy has bulked up since JW. At least we know JW2 won't be Rex free, as that would have been incredibly...stupid.

Every single film has mainland scenes, even JW, but that doesn't mean it couldn't be entirely revolved around island again.

I haven't listened to that podcast so transcript would be welcomed. But in any case scripts can be modified or he could've mislead them

Don't get me wrong. I hope I am 100% WRONG and can laugh at these fears later. I want the island plots destroyed for good, for they should've died 20 years ago already.

Here is the transcript + interview :

Umm, where does he say that? I re-read that three times and couldn't find anything. Except this:
"Hawaii is a primary location but not the only one. But yes, part of the story takes place in the familiar fictional territory Hawaii represents."


But once again that tells you nothing and can be interpreted in many ways. "Part of the story" can mean wide range of the film. Also it's not like TLW's outdoor forest shooting was all done in Hawaii either, but in California, even though it was supposed to represent the same exact island as the Hawaii shoots. Moreover, we've even seen those same kind of pine trees in these production stills so far.

If Colin is serious, this whole Rexy thing is a pretty big surprise to me. Seemed like she had retired to live out her final days on Isla Nublar in JW. Guess we'll just have to see how the story takes us on this one.

I just wish we could go back to Sorna and see what the other islands have. I mean, they are able to gloss over the other islands, but I don't think they can ignore Sorna forever. If they don't bring it up in JP5/JW2, then they might have to in JP6/JW3.

This is obviously me just guessing. But I think(or hope) the Nublar part is just a small part of the film and she will have a scene. 

I'm thinking there will be a lot more to this movie than just saving animals on Nublar. Or atleast I hope.

You know... not gonna lie, I could enjoy this.

In a fan-made animated short film, NOT the main movie!! There is such a thing as listening too much to fans.

Closest I could imagine is Blue scavenging Rexy's kills. Of course only while she's away from the meal Razz

Some of these comments make me question whether we all live on same planet
http://jurassicoutpost.com/original-rex-confirmed-jurassic-world-2-sequel/

"I’m starting to think there will be an even better park this time.I think it will be more cruel however, with Dinosaur fights, Raptor hunts and such."

"They should totally kill her off in the last film. She does protecting Malcolm and Alan and the others and they try to comfort her until she finally draws her last breath"

"I sure hope that if Rexy does actually return, she either dies in the movie protecting (unknowingly, cause that would be stupid imo) our main characters from a new dinosaur, or she of course has a scene like JW, being Queen once more. I think it would be extremely sad to see Ian Malcolm or Grey or heck, even Owen comforting her during her death like he did with the Apatosaurus."

"it’s awesome & they used use her the same way she did in JP1 the way she looked is what i mean"

The first one has me scratching my head; I think the whole park phase of the franchise has gone Chapter 11 without a chance of resurgence. Never-mind the notion of dinosaur pit fights, which while conceptually cool (like something in a Ray Harryhausen film) would serve no purpose in the sequel.

Of course they can! If Trevorrow and Connolly want their dinos to be the main characters and run round being dino sidekicks in the same nostalgia packed island, then that's what we're going to get. Remember, Trevorrow isn't a fan of the other movies, he particularly thought TLW was too dark and humorless. From now on, we're getting happy little dino friend adventures. Hey, we might even get a sing along song this time. I may not like it, but that seems to be the future of this franchise. Pet dinos with cute little pet names like Rexy, and Indy, and Mosy, where all the dinosaurs get together and have fun little parties together because they're teh bestest friends evar!

But surely Bayona, who from what I've heard, has more freedom then what those two had, would be able to put what happened in the first 2 sequels connect better to this new trilogy. I just don't see how the can just ignore them. Maybe JP3, but not TLW, let alone both.

Why do I sometimes feel like I'm on another planet... one which I can't tell is rational or not.

I mean, we're all on the same page when it comes to knowledge about these productions, but it feels like we see-saw between eagerly anticipating them and dreading them despite the lack of overriding signs of trouble.

I'm being mostly pessimistic, true, but from the direction we seem to be going - returning to Nublar, Blue and Rexy back, it's like Trevorrow doesn't understand the basics of what JP TRULY is, and instead sees it only as what he wants it to be. For example, here he implies that he doesn't feel that TLW and JP/// worked. Here, Trevorrow insists that JW must have a more light-hearted tone, less terrifying than JP or TLW, more akin to The Goonies. Here, he talks about how nostalgia was a necessary component to the rebuilding the franchise. And here, he all but flat out states that he didn't like TLW because it didn't have enough humor for him. Trevorrow's formula to a JP film is lighthearted tone + nostalgia + humor. That's not Jurassic Park. That's a comedic spoof.

But isn't Bayona known for being dark? Because that's what I remember hearing about him. Not only that, but isn't their a point where pressure from fans becomes too much for a movie studio to ignore? Look at how Fox ret-conned X3 and most-if not all-of Wolverine: Origins out of existence via Days Of Future Past, in large part due to fan outrage.

But surely Bayona, who from what I've heard, has more freedom then what those two had, would be able to put what happened in the first 2 sequels connect better to this new trilogy. I just don't see how the can just ignore them. Maybe JP3, but not TLW, let alone both.
I'm being mostly pessimistic, true, but from the direction we seem to be going - returning to Nublar, Blue and Rexy back, it's like Trevorrow doesn't understand the basics of what JP TRULY is, and instead sees it only as what he wants it to be. For example, here he implies that he doesn't feel that TLW and JP/// worked. Here, Trevorrow insists that JW must have a more light-hearted tone, less terrifying than JP or TLW, more akin to The Goonies. Here, he talks about how nostalgia was a necessary component to the rebuilding the franchise. And here, he all but flat out states that he didn't like TLW because it didn't have enough humor for him. Trevorrow's formula to a JP film is lighthearted tone + nostalgia + humor. That's not Jurassic Park. That's a comedic spoof.

But isn't Bayona known for being dark? Because that's what I remember hearing about him. Not only that, but isn't their a point where pressure from fans becomes too much for a movie studio to ignore? Look at how Fox ret-conned X3 and most-if not all-of Wolverine: Origins out of existence via Days Of Future Past, in large part due to fan outrage.
Bayona is, but Trevorrow is not only a producer, but the lead writer as well. If the script is whimsical and the tone is dark, it creates contrasting atmosphere.

Of course they can! If Trevorrow and Connolly want their dinos to be the main characters and run round being dino sidekicks in the same nostalgia packed island, then that's what we're going to get. Remember, Trevorrow isn't a fan of the other movies, he particularly thought TLW was too dark and humorless. From now on, we're getting happy little dino friend adventures.

I just think that pressure from fans will force Universal to connect the first 2 sequels to this new trilogy in some way that's more solid then it is. Even if the higher ups are kind of forced to do so kicking and screaming.

Just a minute. I may not know where CT-1138 gets the idea of kid friendly Jurassic park movies with sing alongs (except maybe the land before time), but just know that we don't know for sure if that's what's happening until we have more evidence in the form of JW2 details. After all, I can read the highlights of the Trevorrow + Bayona interview over and over again and not find a single sentence regarding Land Before Time akin situations for this specific saga. Even if we did, that's why I'm @ University of Colorado Denver, so I can learn to make movies and fix Jurassic Park to the dark tone it used to be.

I'd much rather he make the film that he wants to make then compromise what his vision is.

Also, what JP "truly is" is entirely subjective. One could just as easily say the same thing about your take on what JP "truly is".

At the end of the day, it's up to the viewer.
