The ‘Jurassic World’ Franchise Will Reportedly Not End With ‘Dominion’
In 2015, the Jurassic Park film series received the reboot treatment with a new and exciting direction. With an ensemble cast led by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, Jurassic World was, at one time, the third highest-grossing film of all-time. Furthermore, the sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, earned $1.3 billion worldwide and brought original series star Jeff Goldblum back into the fold. As first reported by Collider, the upcoming third installment in the series will not be its conclusion. In fact, producer Frank Marshall reveals it is quite the contrary.
During a conversation with Collider’s Christina Radish, Marshall was asked whether or not Jurassic World: Dominion would be the final chapter. “No. It’s the start of a new era,” he said. “The dinosaurs are now on the mainland amongst us, and they will be for quite some time, I hope.”
Following the dramatic events of 2018’s Fallen Kingdom, dinosaurs are no longer confined to their own island. In fact, several of them have reached continents all around the world. The new normal for the series will see humans forced to interact and coexist with the dinosaurs. However, given what fans know of the series, it will likely end in conflict with one species proving to be dominant.
Series stars Pratt and Howard will reprise their roles in the upcoming film. Additionally, reports of the return of the stars of the original 1990 film Jurassic Park Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum are confirmed. Moreover, New Girl star Jake Johnson and The Call of the Wild‘s Omar Sy will appear in the film as well. Director Colin Trevorrow will also return to the series after stepping away from the 2018 sequel. Filming began in Canada in February 2020. However, in March, production stalled as a safety precaution due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, the film is still scheduled for its original June 2021 release date.
