The cultivation of writer-director Colin Trevorrow's Jurassic World trilogy as well as the Jurassic Park series is on track for a 2022 release, already sending teaser footage to theaters. Universal provided a glimpse of what can be expected during CinemaCon 2021.
The studio is determined to kindle the hype around Jurassic World: Dominion (2022) and featured the upcoming movie during their panel at the convention. Behind-the-scenes footage of Dominion was shown to CinemaCon attendees, and while it's not clear whether the chosen footage is to reach the general public, it indicates what could be expected of the Jurassic World threequel.
"In footage from the set of the original Jurassic Park movie, Jurassic Park director Stephen Spielberg explains a mosquito to a young cast member. The cast remembers the "energy on set," as Laura Dern put it. Jeff Goldblum remembers it. Chris Pratt remembers watching it. "I cried the first time I saw dinosaurs, Bryce Dallas Howard said," ComicBook reporter Brandon Davis wrote.
Davis also reported that Trevorrow calls "Jurassic World: Dominion is a celebration of the franchise" and "it concludes a story that Stephen Spielberg started in 1993," and that Dern claims that Jurassic World: Dominion is "everything we could've ever hoped for and more."
Much like past Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies, Jurassic Park: Dominion once again questions the co-existence of dinosaurs and humans in the modern era. "..the answer is 'no,'" the director said and shared with reporters during a press conference for Camp Crustaceous that "This is the movie that I've been waiting to make from the beginning. It's the one that we have spent the past two movies building to. It really was part of a larger story and part of the design. And I think people may be underestimating the size and importance of Laura Dern and Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum's characters in this movie. It is very much an ensemble, and that [includes] the ability to take these beloved characters from almost 30 years now, and understand how they interact with each other in the context of a world that we've really never seen before, and have not been able to witness until now. It's very exciting for me. I'm having the time of my life."
Jurassic World: Dominion roars into theaters on June 10, 2022.
