With Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom less than a month away from its premiere, marketing is ramping up for the fifth installment in the Jurassic franchise. One of the latest promotions was for the soundtrack titled “Final Journey To The Island” which may be more important than we think.
To the untrained eye — or ear, a soundtrack might not seem all that important. Sure, the soundtrack is just as integral as any other component but they don’t tend to reveal much about the movie. The soundtrack for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, on the other hand, could reveal quite a bit about where the franchise is heading.
Now, there’s no big analysis needed here because the soundtrack’s message is straight-forward. The soundtrack’s single is titled “Final Journey To The Island” which says all we need to know. If that wasn’t clear, Isla Sorna will be no more by the end of the film.
As for the dinosaurs, they’re being taken off of the island as well. It’s unclear where but images of the T-Rex restrained indicate she’s going for a long ride. They could be heading to a nearby island or an isolated preserve, though the likeliest scenario will see them taken inland; evidenced by the soundtrack’s title.
Will the next Jurassic movie feature a breakout on the mainland?
Assuming a trip to the mainland is happening, it won’t end well. We’ve seen how just one dinosaur could throw an entire city into dismay in The Lost World — one can only imagine what a group would do. They wouldn’t all break out at the same time but just one or two would present a serious problem.
Since the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park were able to reproduce on their own, it stands to reason the genetically advanced versions from Jurassic World could reproduce asexually. At the same time, the Indoraptor appears to be the pinnacle of their genetic experimentation, and it could very well hold the ability to create offspring on its own. If it does, we’d more than likely witness an outbreak in the sixth installment.
Aside from theorizing, moving the dinosaurs inland makes the most sense. They’ve been stuck on a chain of islands for years and it’s about time they see the world. Plus, fans have been waiting to see dinosaurs wreak havoc in everyday society — and what better setting than the next film.
There’s no guarantee the next installment in the Jurassic franchise will depict such a scenario but it’s highly plausible considering where the dinos are headed in Fallen Kingdom. That said, we won’t know exactly how Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom leads into the sixth installment until the movie premieres later this year.
