Colin Trevorrow Guardians

What would Guardians of the Galaxy have been like if James Gunn wasn’t involved? Filmmakers like Peyton Reed (Ant-Man) and Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Captain Marvel) were vying for that directing gig at the time, but there’s another filmmaker who was also in contention that we didn’t know about until now: Colin Trevorrow, the director of Jurassic World.

Jurassic World Short Film - Battle At Big Rock

But before that, we’ve got a first look at the short film with a couple images that have debuted online and some details about the Jurassic World short film revealed by director Colin Trevorrow himself.

Colin Trevorrow Galaxy's Edge

A long time ago in a galaxy very, very close, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow was hired to direct Star Wars: Episode 9. That was back in 2015, and though he’d developed a pitch for the film that moved star Daisy Ridley to tears, he eventually left the project. Most reports indicate that Trevorrow’s vision for the movie didn’t align with that of Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, and since she has the final say on all things Star Wars, they parted ways.

Still, working on Episode 9 – even for a limited time – had its perks. One of them included getting to help design a spaceship for his planed version of the movie that would end up in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and in a new interview, Trevorrow confirmed that even though his vision for the film turned to dust when he left Lucasfilm, at least one element of it will remain in the theme park for the foreseeable future.

jurassic world script

Movies can look completely different from their inception and the final product on the big screen, especially since every movie goes through several script changes. This certainly applies to Jurassic World.

Director Colin Trevorrow joined the project after a script had already been written by by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver, bringing along his own changes and writing partner Derek Connolly. So exactly what changed between Jaffa and Silver’s original Jurassic World script and Trevorrow’s final product? Quite a lot, actually.

Jake Johnson Fallen Kingdom

Say what you will about Jurassic World, one of the highlights of the film was Jake Johnson‘s character Lowery (and his interactions with Lauren Lapkus‘ character Vivian). Johnson’s character didn’t return for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, but at one point, there was a chance the character could’ve had a part to play in the recently-released sequel.

Star Wars The Book of Henry

Colin Trevorrow broke out with the low-budget Sundance dramedy Safety Not Guaranteed, catching the attention of megaproducer Steven Spielberg, who hired him to direct Jurassic World. That film broke box office records, becoming the largest grossing non-James Cameron film ever released (at the time). Trevorrow was in line to direct Star Wars: Episode 9 before leaving that sequel over creative differences. His third directorial effort, The Book of Henry, was met with a lot of hate from both critics and audiences alike.

I still haven’t seen The Book of Henry, but while talking to Trevorrow about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, a film he co-wrote and produced, I did have to ask him about a claim I saw him make on social media – that The Book of Henry is a “carbon copy of Star Wars: A New Hope.” His explanation was actually pretty interesting.
