Director Colin Trevorrow said that Jurassic World 3 “will be focused storytelling with dinosaurs all over the world.
The Jurrasic universe has good news coming its way. There's going to be a third part for Jurrasic World, aka Jurrasic World 3. Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum will reprise their roles and they will be joining Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the upcoming Jurassic World 3, the film’s director Colin Trevorrow confirmed on Tuesday night. According to Entertainment Weekly, Trevorrow revealed the news at a screening of Jurassic World in Hollywood hosted by Collider.
Dern joined the director at the event, and later she confirmed the casting herself as she took to social media platform Instagram to post a picture of her and Trevorrow. She captioned it: Loved joining my buddy, Colin, to announce the return of the original cast of Jurassic Park back into the Jurassic World. Jurrasic World's official account also celebrated the news, posting: They’re back. Welcome to Jurassic World Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler & Ian Malcolm. #2021.
The caption was a reference to Neill, Dern, and Goldblum’s characters, respectively. The hashtag suggests that the movie will be out in 2021, and the official date of release is said to be June 11, 2021. Trevorrow, who directed and co-wrote Jurassic World and co-wrote and produced Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, also recently released a short film set within the Jurassic universe called Battle at Big Rock.
Soon after the release of Kingdom in June 2018, Trevorrow said that Jurassic World 3 “will be focused storytelling with dinosaurs all over the world. We really wanted this technology, this genetic power, to go open-source at the end of the film. What we’re suggesting is not just that these specific animals that we care about that were in captivity were freed, but also that the ability to create these animals has gone a little bit wider than our friend Dr. Wu. The open-sourcing of any technology, like nuclear power, that’s the scary side for me.”
With Jurrasic World 3, there will be a total of six films in the series. Also, Trevorrow will executive produce the film with Steven Spielberg. It all began in 1993 with Jurassic Park, starring Dern, Neill, and Goldblum. That was 26 years ago. Jurrasic Park alumn Goldblum reprised his role in the sequel, 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and was also briefly in 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Dern also had a quick cameo in 2001’s Jurassic Park III, which additionally starred Neill.
