CGI and animatronics will be used in conjunction with each other in Jurassic World II. With this news fans are sure to be excited as director Colin Trevorrow promised at the end of last year that there will be more animatronics in the sequel than before, which was great news to fans of the dinosaur franchise as a lot have felt that there was a bit too much CGI in the 2015 hit. But will they deliver on that promise? Well @FilmBayona tweeted this image and if that’s anything to go by then I’m sure we are in for a treat.
Trevorrow told Jurassic Outpost late last year:
“I think the lack of animatronics in Jurassic World had more to do with the physicality of the Indominus, the way the animal moved. It was very fast and fluid, it ran a lot, and needed to move its arms and legs and neck and tail all at once. It wasn’t a lumbering creature. We’ve written some opportunities for animatronics into [Jurassic World 2] – because it has to start at the script level—and I can definitely tell you that Bayona has the same priorities, he is all about going practical whenever possible.
There will be animatronics for sure. We’ll follow the same general rule as all of the films in the franchise which is the animatronic dinosaurs are best used when standing still or moving at the hips or the neck. They can’t run or perform complex physical actions, and anything beyond that you go to animation. The same rules applied in Jurassic Park.”
