We’re kinda scratching our heads with this one on a moral level, because why in the world wouldn’t they (Universal Studios, etc.) let sleeping dinosaurs lie and just finish the damn “Jurassic World” series? Oh. Money. Right.
The third entry into the continuation sequel series of the acclaimed (and still groundbreaking) “Jurassic Park” films “Jurassic World” apparently has a lot more left in the primordial tank.
“Jurassic World” (2015) and “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” (2018) will soon be joined by a third, “Jurassic World: Dominion,” (2021) which will not be the final chapter in the series.
Producer Frank Marshall told our friends at Collider this week that there are still plans in the works for more.
“”t’s the start of a new era,” Marshall told Collider after an effusive “no” when asked if “Dominion” 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.
We’re not sure how we feel about this. Sure, on paper it makes sense to keep beating a dead dino as long as the box office reacts positively. But do we really NEED another one? Or, has been rumored, another three?
“Jurassic World: Dominion” is directed by Colin Trevorrow, who wrote the screenplay with Emily Carmichael, based on a story by Trevorrow and his writing partner, Derek Connolly. It is due out June 11th 2021.
