The world’s most famous dinosaurs are coming back to Hawaii.

"Jurassic World," the fourth installment in the Steven Spielberg dinosaur series, will film on Oahu and Kauai starting in April, said Patrick Crowley, one of the producers of the film.

The production will be in Hawaii for about six weeks, Crowley said by phone from New Orleans, where the film will also be shot.

Hawaii was the only real location considered. Although the recent increase in the state’s tax refund for film and TV productions was attractive to the filmmakers, it was another type of green that appealed to everyone, Crowley said.

"It has the best jungle in the world," he said. "A little bit of green goes a long way. There is fabulous jungle there. And it’s relatively accessible. You need to go to the Amazon to get what you need."
