Steven Spielberg’s Jaws is credited as the summer blockbuster’s arrival, but his adaptation of Michael Crichton’s novel was a benchmark in filmmaking. Jurassic Park was.
CGI was still considered a novelty at the time, but Spielberg and his group proved beyond any doubt it had been more than a fad.
It was just like one of these moments in history, such as the invention of the light bulb or the very first telephone call, Spielberg’s friend and colleague George Lucas stated after seeing the very first test shots of Jurassic Park’s dinosaurs (through The Atlantic).
A significant gap was crossed and things were never likely to be the same.
Effects improved exponentially as the years passed, even if the standard of Jurassic Park movies didn’t. Two sub-par sequels followed, leaving the franchise.
It was only in 2015 (14 years following the especially lackluster Jurassic Park III) that we returned into the dino-infested islands off the coast of Costa Rica, and while Jurassic Earth didn’t quite capture the magic of Spielberg’s original, critics agreed that it was the best entry since Jurassic Park.
The 2018 follow-up Jurassic Earth: the Fallen Kingdom was far more divisive, but it made a billion dollars more than at the box office, making yet another sequel inevitable. Here’s everything we know about World 3 so far.
What is the launch date for Jurassic World 3?
Jurassic Globe: the colossal box office receipts of Fallen Kingdom created another movie a cert that is dead, but the truth is that a sequel trilogy had been the plan all along.
Speaking at the Toronto International Film Festival back in 2016, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom helmer J.A. Bayona confirmed that Colin Trevorrow (director of Jurassic World and co-writer of Fallen Kingdom) pitched the Notion of three new movies right from the get-go.
The whole Jurassic Planet is a trilogy which Colin Trevorrow has envisioned, Bayona said (through MovieWeb). It is very interesting where he is leading the story.
The Spanish filmmaker was speaking before the launch of Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom, but Universal had already set a date for the follow-up at the early period, such as the studio’s confidence in the resurgent franchise.
The studio has established a June 11, 2021, release date for the movie, The Hollywood Reporter verified in February 2018. Trevorrow is currently returning produce the chapter the filmmaker behind the first movies in the 1990s, combined with Steven Spielberg.
That Universal sees Jurassic World 3 as a summer event does not come as much of a surprise, seeing as it functioned well for the previous two installments — Jurassic World premiered on June 9, 2015, while Jurassic Earth: the Fallen Kingdom fell on June 22, 2018.
Who’s at the World 3 throw?
After Colin Trevorrow sat down with Entertainment Weekly at 2018, he confirmed that co-leads Chris Pratt (Paper researcher Owen Grady) and Bryce Dallas Howard (former park operations manager Claire Dearing) would be reprising their roles in Jurassic World 3.
This has been pretty much a given, but Trevorrow (who is co-writing the forthcoming trilogy nearer with Pacific Rim: Uprising scribe Emily Carmichael) also stated that there are other personalities that we will meet in the Fallen Kingdom you’ll realize are major characters. Now that we have seen Jurassic Earth: Fallen Kingdom, we could hazard a guess at who Trevorrow was speaking about here.
Pratt and Howard are supported for Super Planet 3 but Isabella Sermon will almost certainly be back as Maisie Lockwood, the genetically-engineered progeny of John Hammond’s business partner, Benjamin Lockwood. Owen and Claire embraced Maisie in the conclusion of Jurassic Earth: Fallen Kingdom.
This, coupled with the reality that she released the cloned dinosaurs at the end of the film I had to, they are residing like me, presumably setting up the events of World 3, means she’s bound to play a role in the upcoming sequel.
The paleo-veterinarian Zia Rodriguez of Daniella Pineda and Justice Smith’s systems analyst Franklin Webb also escaped Isla Nublar using their lives, so both may pop up in World 3. As of this moment, their involvement remains unconfirmed.
What do we understand about the Jurassic Planet 3 plot?
The finer details of the plot have been kept under lock and key but there is one thing we know about World 3 for sure: the movie will not contain any new hybrids. Jurassic Earth introduced us into the Indominus rex, a long killer made together with the DNA of dinosaur species as well as a handful of more creatures, including the tree frog, cuttlefish, along with pit viper.
The Indominus was developed to boost visitor numbers to the park (people seemingly get bored of seeing real living dinosaurs after a while), but Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’s Indoraptor was a weapon of warfare, made to attack command.
While the layouts were cool, the franchise was taken by the debut of these new dinosaurs to monster movie territory and away from its roots. Trevorrow won’t be trying to up the ante with all the sequel, revealing that he plans to go back to time.
I am looking ahead, in the third movie, getting a little back into the paleontological, wild animal, true dinosaur nature of all it, the manager informed Total Film (via Bloody Disgusting). In accordance with Trevorrow, the Jurassic World film is going to be a science thriller that’s far more in tune with the Jurassic Park movie.
Spielberg desired Trevorrow back into the manager’s seat for World 3
Colin Trevorrow may not have been the ideal match for Star Wars (the director was fired out of Episode IX — The Rise of Skywalker over creative differences, despite having dedicated two decades of his life to the job ), but if it concerns the Jurassic franchise, he’s currently the go-to guy.
Trevorrow handled the budget blockbuster like a seasoned pro, although He’d his hit Safety Not Guaranteed to his title when he was chosen to helm Jurassic World.
During his Entertainment Weekly interview, Trevorrow revealed that Steven Spielberg personally asked him to helm an offer that he simply could not refuse, the next World movie.
Steven Spielberg asked me [to direct], and if he asks you, what can I tell you, man? That he said. In all honesty, over my past couple of decades, I have grown to adore and cherish the value of the gift I’ve been given with this franchise. Interestingly, Trevorrow only came aboard the franchise following J.A. Bayona turned down the Opportunity to direct Jurassic World.
Trevorrow was desired by Spielberg back in the hot seat for its trilogy capper while Bayona agreed to take the reins for the Fallen Kingdom.
Does a script offer a few clues about Jurassic World 3?
Though that lengthy gap was not down, 14 years passed between World and Jurassic Park III. Quite a few sequels were reportedly floated throughout this interval.
The one that got closest to having greenlit came by way of screenwriter John Sayles. Jurassic Park IV never got off the ground, but what is interesting is that many of Sayles’ ideas ended up being used in Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Sayles’ story’s star was a clown called Nick Harris, which appears very similar to the blueprint Owen Grady, for Chris Pratt guy. Most notably, it was Sayles who came up with the idea of shady types trying to train dinosaurs the World trilogy’s theme, as firearms.
If this screenplay influenced the two movies, can it also contain clues?
According to Den of Geek, Sayles’ draft touches on the Notion of an America plagued by dinosaurs. With the United States facing its greatest ever danger, a corporate stooge spots a company opportunity.
We understand that some of the black market prices from Jurassic Earth: Fallen Kingdom escaped the ill-fated auction with their Paper specimens.
Who will the U.S. government turn to if all appears lost? If this World 3 concept holds true, people will struggle dinosaurs in an effort to stave off extinction.
