Jurassic World 3 | What We Know So Far
Jurassic Park is undoubtedly one of the most-watched franchises around the world. Although fans may argue that the new movies are not as good as the old ones, it has made little effect on the box office. The second edition of the reboot, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, was widely criticized. But it still managed to make $1.5 billion worldwide. With that margin of success, fans can always expect another movie down the line, and rightfully so.
The Original Cast is Returning!
Jurassic Park’s director Steven Spielberg confirmed that Colin Trevorrow would be directing Jurassic World 3. Colin confirmed last year that the original cast from Jurassic Park will be returning. That’s right! The movie will be featuring Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neill and Laura Dern in major roles. Fans are very excited to see the original trio work alongside Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. It’s going to be a very interesting watch, to say the least.
While Goldblum appeared in a small role in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Dern only returned to the franchise for a brief cameo in Jurassic Park III. However, director Colin Trevorrow has confirmed that the trio is going to have sizable roles and fans will be treated by a lot of Goldblum screentime. Moreover, Jake Johnson and Omar Sy from Jurassic World are also going to reprise their roles in the third movie.
Jurassic World 3 Release details
Jurassic World 3, whose working title is Arcadia, has had very few details made public. Even its actual title is unconfirmed. Arcadia literally means “any real or imaginary place offering peace and simplicity.” However, the working title is a nod to the first Jurassic World. Arcadia was the ship that transported dinosaurs to Lockwood Manor to be auctioned off.
The release date is June 21, 2021. Producer Frank Marshall has updated that:
With regards to the next Jurassic World movie, we are in full pre-production at Pinewood Studios in London, England. We plan to begin shooting in February of next year, so that is all very much in motion.
Battle at Big Rock
Director Colin Treverrow also released a Jurassic Park short film last year. It picks off after the events of Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom. The short film is titled “Battle at Big Rock.” It depicts a world where humans and dinosaurs have to co-exist, but not always peacefully. Carnivores and herbivores are going to do what they were evolved to do. But in our modern world, these prehistoric predators are discovering that humans still have an evolutionary advantage.
