Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World stands as the fourth biggest movie of all time, and inevitably sequels are on the way.

"I grew up watching Steven Spielberg movies and I love those movies and the legacy, so it's a question of being truthful to the legacy and at the same time, bringing new stuff that people will appreciate. We are still six months ahead of shooting, and so far, so good. It's very exciting right now."

Last year, Trevorrow gave a few early hints as to what fans could expect from Jurassic World 2. "It will get to be a different kind of film," he told the Jurassic Cast Podcast. "The audience has given us permission to a certain extent to take this to the next level, and I don't necessarily mean in scale, I feel very strongly that it's not about more dinosaurs or bigger and better dinosaurs, it's about using this as a starting point for a much larger story about our relationship with these animals.

"Jurassic World was very much made with the fans in mind, and I'm not going to forget it, but now we've seen a lot of 'dinosaurs chasing people around on an island' movies. I think you guys and also the general audience is going to be down to explore where else we can go."

Jurassic World 2 is set to hit theaters on June 22, 2018.
