Colin Trevorrow, the director of Jurassic World: Dominion, has teased that the upcoming third film in the trilogy will tie into all of the previous five films in the long-running sci-fi franchise.
In an interview with EW, Trevorrow discussed how the six movies together will bring the entire series to a close, while teasing that Jurassic World: Dominion will shine a new light on the Jurassic Park trilogy.
“To me, [Dominion] is a culmination of one story that’s been told,” Trevorrow said. “When you got to the end of the Jurassic Park trilogy, it may not have been as clear in what the complete story of those three movies was because they were a bit more episodic in the way that they were approached. But this trilogy is not that way. It’s very much a serialized story. What was important for me was, when you watch Dominion, you really feel like you are learning how much of a story that first set of movies was and how everything that happened in those movies actually informs what ultimately is able to happen in this. If kids who are born today are going to be presented with six Jurassic Park movies — you hope the parents will buy them the box set — you hope they are going to get to feel like they watch one long story.”
Although plot details are still being kept under wraps, Trevorrow has previously stated that the returning original trio of Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern will have significant roles in Jurassic World: Dominion – rather than short cameos like Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Jurassic World: Dominion is being directed by Colin Trevorrow and features a cast that includes franchise returnees Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, Justice Smith, Danielle Pineda, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy and Isabella Sermon along with new additions DeWanda Wise (She’s Gotta Have It), Mamoudou Athie (Patti Cake$), Scott Haze (Venom), Campbell Scott (House of Cards), and Dichen Lachman (Altered Carbon). The film is set to be released on June 10th, 2022.
