While many have thought that Jurassic World could end with the third installment titled Jurassic World: Dominion, franchise producer Frank Marshall spoke to Collider and revealed that they could be pushing forward with more installments.
“It’s the start of a new era,” he said, after an effusive “no” when asked if Jurassic World 3 was being envisioned as an endpoint. “The dinosaurs are now on the mainland amongst us, and they will be for quite some time, I hope” he added, alluding to future stories set in this “new normal” world where humans have to share the globe alongside dinosaurs.
This news isn’t shocking as the short film Battle at Big Rock was said to help establish this larger world that has been created with the dinosaurs reaching the mainland.
Colin Trevorrow is directing from a script he wrote with Emily Carmichael.
The cast of Jurassic World: Dominion includes Chris Pratt (Avengers: Infinity War, Guardians of The Galaxy), Bryce Dallas Howard (Black Mirror, Spider-Man 3), Sam Neill (Hunt For The Wilderpeople), Laura Dern (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Jeff Goldblum (Thor: Ragnarok), Daniella Pineda (Cowboy Bebop), Justice Smith (Detective Pikachu), DeWanda Wise, Mamoudou Athie (Underwater), Dichen Lachman (Altered Carbon, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Scott Haze (Venom, Antlers), Isabella Sermon, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Jake Johnson (Jurassic World, New Girl, The Mummy), and Omar Sy (X-Men: Days of Future Past).
Universal had planned on releasing the film on June 11th, 2021 but production delays could see Dominion pushed to a later date possibly in 2022. Filming was taking place in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and Pinewood Studios UK in England under the working of Arcadia (first revealed by HNE) before COVID-19 halted the production, it’s still unclear when they’ll resume the shoot.
