“Jurassic World” is a direct sequel to “Jurassic Park”, according to director Colin Trevorrow.
The Chris Pratt-starrer film will follow on directly from Steven Spielberg’s original 1993 adventure, reported Digital Spy.
“‘Jurassic Park 2’ and ‘Jurassic Park III’ are still part of the overall continuity, as they’re set on a different island named Isla Sorna,” he said.

“I felt like I had a responsibility to do it. Mostly for Steven (Spielberg), in thanks for all he’s done for all of us and how much his movies meant to me in my childhood. But also, if one is asked to do this, it’s almost insulting to everyone else to say no. We’d all love this privilege – to be able to re-create a film that meant so much to us,” he added.
Producer Frank Marshall added, “It was Colin’s pitch that we needed to go back to what we did in the first movie and enter the (Jurassic Park) park in wonderment and joy and happiness… And then it can go wrong.”
