Most descriptions of Jurassic Park 4, aka Jurassic World, have described it as a reboot, but that’s led to a lack of clarity over whether it does restart the franchise and ignore the past, or if it’s just a reboot in terms of breathing new life into a film series that has been dormant for several year.
Director Colin Trevorrow was asked about whether it was a full reboot, and replied by letting us know a little more about when the film is set. He tweeted ‘@pfcbains916 Reboot is a strong word. This is a new sci-fi terror adventure set 22 years after the horrific events of Jurassic Park.’
With a June 2015 release set, the 22 years suggests it will be completely contemporary, as it will have been almost exactly that amount of time since the first Jurassic Park was released.
While no official plot details have been release, it is rumuored to take place on the original island, Isla Nublar, which has been turned into an amusement park, as first envisioned by John Hammond. We’ve also been promised new, never before seen dinosaurs, as well as ones that go underwater.
