Although the last two Jurassic World films have been considered some of the best sequels to Jurassic Park, it also goes without saying that they’ve mostly been their own story. It appears that’s going to change with the next film, Jurassic World: Dominion. The movie has already been intended to gather characters from all throughout the original Jurassic Park films and the new Jurassic World sequels. But now director Colin Trevorrow has explained that Jurassic World: Dominion will actually bring the Jurassic Park franchise to a close.
While he wasn’t able to explain too specifically, he did emphasize that it will tie together all six movies. Here’s what he said while speaking with EW:
“To me, [Dominion] is a culmination of one story that’s been told. 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.”
He also called Jurassic World: Dominion “a celebration of the whole franchise.” It appears this will be sort of an Endgame for Jurassic Park, with all of the films having led up to this moment. This should surely be an exciting installment for fans of the franchise, both new and old. Hopefully we’ll have more details on the project as its 2022 release date approaches.
Colin Trevorrow directed the film from a script he wrote alongside Emily Carmichael and Derek Connolly.
The upcoming sequel, Jurassic World: Dominion, will feature stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, Dichen Lachman, Mamoudou Athie, DeWanda Wise, Scott Haze, and Campbell Scott. Of course, we can also expect a ton of dinosaurs to be making appearances as well.
Jurassic World: Dominion is expected to hit theaters on June 10, 2022.
