It’s been almost 2 years since Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom with huge box office numbers and an ending that had everybody talking captivated the imaginations of the entire planet. And yet before all of this had arrived for the opening weekend on the fan’s mental doorsteps, there was another sequel waiting in the wings, ready to take the stage after the closing moments had played out. So, obviously, now is a good time to start talking about Jurassic World: Dominion, the future installment in the series.
While at this particular moment there is still a lot to discuss, there is a decent amount of information we do have, which we will share here. And be aware, there will be some prediction based on the Jurassic World ending: the Fallen Kingdom and this article will be revised to reflect it as soon as we have the latest information. Let’s plunge into the future of what was once simply known as Jurassic World 3.
What Will Jurassic World 3 Be Rated?
As the whole series has followed that trend, it is most likely that Jurassic World 3 will be rated PG-13. The precedent goes all the way back to the original film by Steven Spielberg, which balanced the core of a family-friendly blockbuster with the fierce essence of the harsher, more frightening source material by Michael Crichton. Jurassic World and Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom, both movies in the series, was rated PG-13 for “intense levels of science-fiction violence and peril.” Therefore, unless the danger and violence are either scaled-down or more severe, expect much of the same.
When Will Jurassic World 3 Be Released?
A date was set for Jurassic World: Dominion to take its place on the world stage before Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom was even released into the wild. On June 11, 2021, the film will be released theatrically. That’s also a pretty exciting date because it’s also the same day Jurassic Park premiered in 1993, making this film the perfect gift for dinosaur fans for the 28th anniversary.
The rivalry, however, will be very stiff, as Jurassic World 3 will be positioned against Paramount’s Micronauts film, which opens on 4 June the week before it, and an untitled Pixar film, which opens on 18 June. 2 weeks later, when Warner Bros.’ The Batman rides into theaters on June 25th, the fighting really begins. This is all hoping that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Jurassic World: Dominion continues to retain this release date after its delayed development schedule.
Who Is Directing Jurassic World 3?
Colin Trevorrow, the director of Jurassic World, and co-writer of both that film and Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom is back in the director’s chair for Jurassic World 3 in line with the current trend to bring back your first director to close out a trilogy. This is mainly because of his dismissal from the Star Wars: Episode IX director’s chair/writing room, which stopped him from returning to the series, along with his work on The Book of Henry. However, Trevorrow was not a total stranger to the franchise, as he not only co-wrote the sequel to his first attempt, he also helped authorize J.A.’s hiring. Bayonne in the movie as well.
Who Is Writing Jurassic World 3?
Jurassic World 3 clearly needs a story written before cameras can start shooting in the near future, with such a short release window approaching. As luck will have it, there would be two writers writing the film’s script. The first is Emily Carmichael, whose recent credits have seen her name mentioned in relation to this year’s Pacific Rim: Rebellion, as well as a previous rewrite of The Black Hole’s Disney remake. The second is not a surprise, given that since day one he has been working on the franchise: Colin Trevorrow. Trevorrow was appointed to direct and co-write Jurassic World with writing partner Derek Connolly, following his indie success with Protection Not Guaranteed. The two were re-elected for Jurassic World: the Fallen Empire, but the team is now split in the interest of progress. But it will also include Emily Carmichael, providing another angle.
In Jurassic World 3, Will There Be A New Hybrid Dinosaur?
As both Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Hybrid dinosaurs have been used by the Fallen Kingdom as their jaw-dropping creations/partial antagonists, a third go-’round would have some members of the audience wondering’ how the hell are they going to top the creations of Indominous Rex and Indoraptor? ‘Fortunately, an answer has already been made clear if the question was posed in a serious or derisive tone. In Jurassic World 3, there will be no hybrid dinosaurs, according to the wishes of Colin Trevorrow to get back to basics with the dinos of the game, which is possibly the right choice. Not only does this mean that the ability to get tired of hybrid dinosaurs will not be offered to people, it matches well with the ending in which all the “pure” dinosaurs were allowed into the wild. The series doesn’t need more species at this stage, especially if this film is meant to finish the story.
What Will Jurassic World 3 Be About?
Although there seem to be a number of uncertainties left open at the end of Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom, when it comes to providing some answers in the story of Jurassic Park 3, we are not sure which ones will be a priority. This third, and probably final, film in the Jurassic World franchise, however, can be presumed to be about rounding up the remaining dinosaurs scattered across the world. It’s also a safe bet to think that at the beginning of the Fallen Kingdom, Claire and Owen will be attempting to rescue and move all those creatures on the island that Eli Mills initially pitched as the supposed dinosaur sanctuary. Most notably, because her escape into the wild left the door wide open for reconciliation in the future, this should be the defining chapter of the tale between Owen and Blue the Velociraptor.
Although the following angle will be relevant for Jurassic World 3 as far as Colin Trevorrow is concerned, per an EW interview:
I think we’ve created enough of a popcorn empire that we can finally start discussing some themes and concepts for the third film and laying out some simple facts to ensure that children understand that science is real and dinosaurs are real and we didn’t make this stuff up.
