Jurassic World: Dominion recently wrapped filming, parts of which took place here in Malta, and faced delays due to the ongoing pandemic. This final instalment of the franchise will include, ‘Jurassic legacy actors Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, and newcomers to the movie such as Mamoudou Athie and DeWanda Wise, and some dinosaurs, of course.’
Jurassic World: Dominion director, Colin Trevorrow has teased that the upcoming threequel will be a ‘culmination’ of the entire Jurassic Park series and will premiere in June 2022.
Patrick Crowley, Producer of Jurassic World commended the lengths to which Malta and the Malta Film Commission went to make sure all the cast and crew were safe during their time in Malta.
“Malta worked with us in order to adjust to COVID,” Patrick Crowley said on a local TV programme, adding that Johann Grech, Malta’s Film Commissioner was able to give us government assurance that we would be able to bring our crew people in, and bring our actors in, which, I don’t think there is any other Government in the world which could give us that kind of solid foundation, to be able to move forward on the movie.”
Trevorrow has also revealed that it will mark ‘a celebration of the whole franchise’, referring to it as ‘a culmination of one story that’s been told’.
He shared, ‘When you got to the end of the Jurassic Park trilogy, it may not have been as clear in what the complete story of those three movies was because they were a bit more episodic in the way that they were approached’.
Trevorrow continued, ‘But this trilogy is not that way. It’s very much a serialized story. What was important for me was, when you watch Dominion, you really feel like you are learning how much of a story that first set of movies was and how everything that happened in those movies actually informs what ultimately is able to happen in this.’
‘If kids who are born today are going to be presented with six Jurassic Park movies — you hope the parents will buy them the box set — you hope they are going to get to feel like they watch one long story.’
Are you excited to see this or what?!
