Bayona teases Jurassic World sequel title on Spanish TV & may have confirmed Spanish locations! [UPDATE!]

In what now seems like the beginning of a flood of Jurassic World sequel news, recently announced director J.A. Bayona appeared on a Spanish TV show today and was asked some questions regarding the movie.

J.A. Bayona

While online translations are never completely accurate, 'MrTweedy' brought the news to JPLegacy forums along with the photo above and some bullet pointed info.

According to the post, J.A. Bayona confirmed that they have a new title for the movie but that it is currently a secret. He's super excited for the movie but it is a big challenge for him. He would ideally like to have a team of Spanish people working on it, which brings up an exciting final point:

There are numerous obstacles to record in Spanish locations. Did J.A. Bayona just confirm that the Jurassic World sequel will be filming in Spain? According to the forum thread, he said that he wants to film in Spain but they are "having complications with this".

Thanks to JurassicWorldES, we now have a video of the interview! It's 20 minutes and is in Spanish, but if anybody can translate this fully, that would be excellent:

What do you think about this news? It seems J.A. is very excited for the movie and with the potential confirmation of 'Spanish locations', I think we're in for a real treat.

It's also interesting to note that IMDb have now listed production designer Eugenio Caballero on the Jurassic World sequel. If true, he'll replace Jurassic World's Ed Verreaux. Eugenio has worked with director J.A. Bayona previously on The Impossible and the more recent A Monster Calls.

UPDATE: MrTweedy posted a better translation with more information:

- The film has title, but He can tell it yet ...
- He and Colin have always had a very nice communication, they do not know in person, but have talked a lot, and Colin always told the hope that he has to write a movie for Bayona.
- He will have a meet with Colin, Frank Marshall and Spielberg to discuss details of the film soon.
- To make a sequel is more complicated because you have the DNA of the characters and the story, but you have to innovate and have something new to respect the above and satisfies the public.
- He don't reject WORLD WAR Z for JW2, but has simply been a coincidence, because WORLD WAR Z was beginning to roll back soon and he is immerse in A MONSTER CALLS.
- In a movie like JW has a lot of pressure and more with the success of JW1, but he doesn't scare for a flop at the box office, he does not movies for the money but looking for a quality film and good result. He considers himself a "normal" spectator and he wants to make a movie that usually likes to "normal" spectators want.
- It would be very easy record the movie in Spain, but Spain taxation in places not easy. It is possible to record in the Canary Islands (Spain) which is where World War Z. But is more easy to record Malta or Budapest than in Spanish territory.

Jurassic World sequel to film in the UK; starts early 2017!
Posted by ChrisLikesDinos - Thursday 21 April 2016 at 05:39PM - 3 Comments

Say goodbye to Hawaii: the sequel to Jurassic World is moving overseas to the UK. Last month we reported a rumor that Jurassic World 2 may be filming in London, and we speculated this meant Pinewood studios: today hot off the heels of the JA Bayona director announcement a UK based production informer, 'The Knowledge', confirmed the UK locale.


While it's currently unclear if this means Pinewood or another studio, this marks a significant move for the franchise which always found its home in the United States. The change of scenery comes as no surprise, as Colin Trevorrow previously confirmed that the sequel would be leaving the fictional location of the Parks, Isla Nublar (and Sorna).

Now, before this news gets misconstrued: it does not mean Dinosaurs in cities. Just as filming in the Los Angeles backlots did not mean Dinosaurs attacking California in Jurassic Park (go ahead, mention the ending of The Lost World to counter this, you know you want to). This will simply be the new home of production, where the offices are located, and where the backlot sets are built - just as Star Wars The Force Awakens filmed in Londons Pinewood Studios.

It has yet to be reported where the 'on location' filming will take place: the Jurassic franchise has always been about mostly isolated and wild, beautiful settings and we sincerely doubt that they're going away. Many fans such as myself have always wanted to see a Jurassic film set in Africa, perhaps Congo, Kenya or Tanzania. There are also quite a few European settings that would look fantastic on screen, such as Iceland. Either way, we're expecting a notable change and the setting to be closer to Europe than the United States.

So, when does filming start? Let's hear it from Owen Grady himself (starting at 3:15):

If you couldn't watch the video, and didn't read the article title he confirms that filming starts early 2017. This gives the film roughly under a year and a half from filming start to release, which is a moderately healthy amount of breathing room. Chris Pratt goes on to mention that he can't talk story, but he's incredibly excited from what little he knows - and while it's one thing for him to say it, he also looks it!

As always, be sure to stay tuned for all the latest news, and sound off in the comments below!
