Jurassic World saw John Hammond's vision finally realized with a fully functional theme park where guests could safely witness the most amazing creatures this planet has ever seen. However, as is often the case with moneymaking enterprises, enough is never enough and they pushed too far resulting in the collapse of the whole thing. With Jurassic World in ruins, dinosaurs running amuck and InGen being as nefarious as ever, where will the story go in the sequel film, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom? From the way Bryce Dallas Howard explains below, it sounds like they will be cleaning up the mess they made:
Claire's founded an organization, Dinosaur Protection Group, and they're finding a way to get these dinosaurs off the island. She reaches out to Owen Grady to let him know this is happening.
The first full Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom film debuts Thursday night, but we have already seen a few teases for it, and there is going to be a massive volcanic eruption on the island that threatens the lives of the dinosaurs there. So while it would be nice to let the dinosaurs live in peace on Isla Nublar, that doesn't appear to be an option. Bringing life into this world, even when it should be extinct, means you have a responsibility to care for it and that's what Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire Dearing is going to do.
Where they are going to relocate the dinosaurs is anyone's guess, but I'm assuming San Diego won't be volunteering. Chris Pratt's Owen Grady understood the animals better than anyone in Jurassic World, so it will be wise for Claire to bring him in. But why does she have to call him? Are they not together as was hinted at the end of Jurassic World? We'll get an answer to that, as Bryce Dallas Howard also told Entertainment Weekly:
When you see them at the beginning of this story, you get caught up as to what's going on. But it's not what you would necessarily expect.
Opposites attract, but Owen and Claire seemed less than compatible in Jurassic World, so it wouldn't be surprising if they are no longer together romantically at the beginning of this movie. Owen Grady genuinely cared for the dinosaurs and didn't just see them as financial assets, so it makes sense that he could be roped back in with Claire to help rescue the creatures from another fiery extinction. This also explains why, in one of the trailer teases, Owen Grady is excited when looking at a T-Rex passed out in a crate. It will be interesting to see where they are taking her that will be safe from both environmental threats and human ones. We know this film will be scarier than its predecessor, but it will also have a fair amount to say about animal rights.
