The shoot will include Hawaii and London on its travels.

Previously, Bayona had told Coming Soon of the Jurassic World sequel that you can expect a political subtext to the movie.
“I think it’s very interesting where the new movie is heading. It’s so different from the other films, it talks a lot about the moment we live in right now”, he said. “It’s darker… but at the same time, it’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s a blockbuster, you have Chris Pratt, it’s a great adventure, but it’s very interesting the way the film is darker than the other ones”.
He added that “you need to adapt, you need to know where you are. Jurassic is going to be very different from A Monster Calls or The Orphanage, but they called me because they loved The Orphanage and The Impossible and they wanted me to be leading the new Jurassic”.
That said, Bayona did note that Jurassic Park is Steven Spielberg’s baby, and “I’m going to take care of his baby as much as possible, knowing where I am all the time”.
