On the road to the second season of “Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous” coming to Netflix this Friday, director Colin Trevorrow speaks a bit about the upcoming feature film Jurassic World: Dominion in a new chat with Entertainment Weekly. The film’s current release date is June 10, 2022, and Trevorrow describes it as both a “celebration” and a “culmination.”
“[Dominion is] a celebration of the whole franchise,” Trevorrow tells Entertainment Weekly. “To me, [Dominion] is a culmination of one story that’s been told.”
He continues, “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.”
“What these movies are is changing in a way,” Trevorrow adds. “All of the Jurassic movies have fundamentally been about people who go to an island and there are dangerous dinosaurs there who very well may harm them. As we take it into a new place where it’s about humans and dinosaurs sharing the planet as we do with animals, it gives us an opportunity to make more character stories with people you know and love and care about.”
The film’s cast includes familiar and new faces such as 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 and Scott Haze.
Plot details are still under wraps, but Fallen Kingdom promised a sequel wherein the dinosaurs are now on the mainland… and humans are falling to the bottom of the food chain.
