J.A. Bayona elevated his standing as a director in the film industry with his work on movies like The Impossible and A Monster Calls and he got to the stage where he was chosen to direct Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. In an exclusive interview with Collider, J.A. Bayona spoke about various aspects of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Here is what J.A. Bayona said on ‘that’ Brachiosaurus scene and bringing it to life in the movie:
“I think it was a great idea. That was already in the first script. The moment the characters leave the island behind, there’s one dinosaur that you see that it gets left there, and they cannot do anything for her.”
“It wasn’t the brachiosaurus at the very beginning, but there was a moment during the long sessions that we were working on the script that we decided that it had to be the brachiosaurus, the first brachiosaurus that we saw in Jurassic Park.”
“There’s a speech that Claire does later on, ‘Do you remember the first time you saw a dinosaur?’ And the first time we saw a dinosaur was that brachiosaurus. So it was like a way of putting the audience into that moment, remembering the first time they saw a dinosaur, so it had to be the brachiosaurus.”
“It was the right way, it felt like the right thing to do, to finish the island with the first dinosaurs we saw on the island.”
Jurassic World 3
Bayona also gave some comments on what he hopes to see from Jurassic World 3 which he will not direct:
“No, I don’t know much about it. I think it’s very interesting. It’s something that definitely we’ve never seen before, and I like that. But at the same time, I know that Colin has a very challenging endeavor right now in front of him. I think it’s very exciting, but it’s very challenging, too.”
