In the world of Jurassic, J.A. Bayona is the new kid on the block. As the director of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the young auteur worked alongside the original film's director, Steven Spielberg; the previous film's director, Colin Trevorrow; the franchise's longtime producer, Frank Marshall; and so on. It may seem as though he was just a hired gun, but every step of the way, Bayona made sure made Fallen Kingdom very much his own.

One of the things that makes the Jurassic Park franchise so memorable is John Williams' score. The majestic music is one of the legendary composer's most recognisable compositions. That score is teased, but never truly unleashed, in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which is also the perfect analogy for the movie as a whole. Everything feels held back and small. There's never a moment worthy of that iconic music.

When Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow signed on to make Star Wars: Episode IX, it was obvious he couldn't do two blockbusters sequels. Now, after months of unconfirmed rumours, the director for Jurassic World 2 has officially been announced: J.A. Bayona.
