Good news! It looks like while many speculated that Jurassic World: Dominion would be the final installment of the Jurassic World saga, that is not the case after all. It has been reported that there will be much more to come from the franchise.
If you’re caught up on the Jurassic World timeline, dinosaurs are running loose all over the world, and obviously, Jurassic World: Dominion will share the story of how that will be resolved. So, what happens after that? Producer Frank Marshall assured fans that it will be the start of a new era.
The rest of the films will focus on dinosaurs on Earth with humans.
Collider spoke to Jurassic World producer Frank Marshall who affirmed that Jurassic World: Dominion is not being planned as the final installment of the franchise.
“It’s the start of a new era,” he said after he assured fans that no, Jurassic World 3 will not be the end of the road for the franchise. “The dinosaurs are now on the mainland amongst us, and they will be for quite some time, I hope.”
He also alluded to future stories that will set up films focused on a “new normal” world where humans have to coexist alongside dinosaurs.
‘Jurassic World: Dominion’ is set to premiere in June 2021.
Despite a virtual halt to all film and television production amid the COVID-19 outbreak, Jurassic World: Dominion is set to premiere June 11, 2021.
To make sure that the release date is not pushed back, the film set will reportedly have a drive-thru coronavirus test facility. IndieWire reported that cameras are set to resume rolling on the film as soon as July 6, 2020, at London’s Pinewood Studios.
Deadline reports that a COVID-19 testing facility is just one of the precautions Universal is taking when filming begins. Other additions include a private medical facility called Your Doctor, which is being assembled at Pinewood Studios “to manage the entire production’s medical needs.”
The new safety protocols will also include COVID training for all cast and crew; on-site doctors, nurses, and isolation booths; 150 hand sanitizer stations; nightly antiviral ‘fogs;’ more than 1,800 safety signs put up around Pinewood; and “Green Zones” for shooting cast and crew. The “Green Zone” will also act as a gateway to the production, as the area “will be policed to stop any untested crew from coming in as a further measure to prevent any spread of COVID-19.”
‘Jurassic World’ star Bryce Dallas Howard talked about how “awesome” the script is.
Collider spoke with Bryce who teased her first reaction to reading the script for Jurassic World: Dominion after director Colin Trevorrow gave her the go-ahead.
“The script was awesome. It was so exhilarating reading it. My husband got to read it too, Colin was like ‘Yeah, you and Seth can read it’ and we were like “Rraaaggh!!’ just the whole time flipping out. That was exhilarating because we are all so excited to come back together.”
