Jurassic World Dominion Director Reveals His Favorite Character Arc

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Jurassic World Dominion.,Jurassic World Dominion director Colin Trevorrow reveals his favorite character arc in the latest sequel. When 2015’s Jurassic World acted as a soft reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, audiences were introduced to a new slate of heroes, including Chris Pratt’s Owen and Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire. The characters would appear once more in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom before teaming up with original Jurassic Park cast members Sam Neill, Lara Dern, and Jeff Goldblum in the recently released Jurassic World Dominion.,Dominion picks up where Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom left off, depicting a world in which humans now co-exist with dinosaurs. In addition to some threatening new dinosaurs, the latest film also features a duplicitous biotechnology company, BioSyn, run by Lewis Dodgson (Campbell Scott). The firm employs a host of scientists and tech wizards, including Mamoudou Athie’s Ramsay Cole, a new addition to the franchise. Although thought to be a relatively minor character at first, Cole comes to play an important role in the events of Jurassic World Dominion as it revealed that he secretly opposes Dodgson and what is going on at BioSyn.,Related: Dominion Finally Gives Alan Grant & Ellie Sattler Fans What They Wanted,In a new interview with THR, Trevorrow reveals that Ramay’s arc is ultimately his favorite one in the movie. Trevorrow explains that, if Ramsay wants to advance at his company, he’ll have to not “rock the boat,” an idea he ultimately rejects. To Trevorrow, Ramsay represents a new generation of activists and dreamers who want to create change in the world but are faced with a group of decision-makers primarily from an older generation. Check out Trevorrow’s full comment below:,Although more of a supporting character, Ramsay, in addition to helping out Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler when the two are in a bind later in the movie, also clearly represents some grand ideas. Dodgson, who is of an older generation, makes it clear that Ramsay is next in line to run the business and uses that as leverage to attempt to get his subordinate to fall in line and not blow the whistle about the illegal doings at BioSyn. Ramsay, of course, ultimately puts his ethics above his desire to get ahead and the film ends with Ramsay, Grant, Sattler, and Malcolm testifying against BioSyn.,In many ways, both the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World franchises are about the consequences of corporate greed. Although BioSyn isn’t the first corporation in the franchise’s history to fall victim to the dubious ambitions of its leader, Jurassic World Dominion is the first film in the franchise to put a pointed generational spin on the idea. Jurassic World Dominion may not have hit the same highs as previous Jurassic Park or Jurassic World installments, but it’s admirable that Trevorrow is very much interested in modernizing the franchise and exploring new themes as they relate to younger generations.,More: How Much Jurassic World Dominion Cost To Make (& What Box Office It Needs),Source: THR
