Colin Trevorrow Claims ‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ Won’t Be End Of Franchise
Director Colin Trevorrow has revealed that his upcoming film Jurassic World: Dominion, the third and final entry in the Jurassic World trilogy and sixth film in the Jurassic Park franchise, will not just serve as a conclusion to the Jurassic World movies, but will also be a celebration of the whole franchise, paying tribute to all five of the previous films while also managing to stand out from the rest. Jurassic World: Dominion has been delayed several times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with it originally set to be released in 2021, only for it to be pushed back to 2022 due to the production delays, with filming being completed in November, 2020.
Trevorrow recently told EW that the Jurassic Park films have always been connected, stating, “To me, [Dominion] is a culmination of one story that’s been told. 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.”
When asked if the films had a connection to the Netflix animated series Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous, Trevorrow noted, “It’s important to me, out of respect for the writers who are continuing to expand and create, to recognize [Camp Cretaceous] as clearly its own story and its own show. But this season — and if we’re granted further opportunities to tell the story that we have [in season 3] — will keep weaving in to the larger story and really inform some things, even in Dominion that will connect to discoveries made that I’m really excited about.”
Jurassic World: Dominion will be released on June 10, 2022, where the Jurassic Park film series will finally come to a close.
