Secondary Jurassic Park Characters That Should Return To The Franchise
A sequel to Jurassic World is coming, no doubt about that at all. Even before the surprise box office success of the fourth film in the Jurassic Park franchise, director Colin Trevorrow stated that Jurassic World was meant to start a new trilogy (even if he isn’t directing the future sequel). While the fourth film contained plenty of nods to the original Jurassic Park and reintegrated the Dr. Henry Wu character back into the fold, future Jurassic sequels will have even more opportunities to build upon the more tangible mythology established in Jurassic World. Spielberg, Trevorrow, and company are taking their time to develop Jurassic World II (Jurassic Park V!), potentially aiming for an initial draft by this August according to some sources. Besides the assured return of Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), Dr. Henry Wu (B.D. Wong), and possibly Barry (Omar Sy) and/or Lowery Cruthers (Jake Johnson), I wanted to suggest a few secondary characters from previous Jurassic films that deserve another chance to tango with dinosaurs. Note: Ellie Sattler, Alan Grant, and Ian Malcolm aren’t coming back. We need to let them go. Haven’t they been through enough?
