Colin Trevorrow promises fans that Jurassic World Dominion will culminate the saga and celebrate the entire Jurassic franchise
Jurassic World Dominion director Colin Trevorrow takes his role very seriously. And when approaching the end of the trilogy, he promises his movie is a celebration of the entire saga. Better yet, his blockbuster will also link to the animated series Camp Cretaceous.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Trevorrow said he views Dominion as “a culmination of one story that’s been told” going back to the first Jurassic Park. Especially as his finale calls upon the talents of Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum. Stars of Steven Spielberg’s classic.
“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. 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.”
Trevorrow also says his movie doesn’t just culminate the theatrical chapter of the franchise. It also includes links to Netflix’s Camp Cretaceous animated series.
“It’s important to me, out of respect for the writers who are continuing to expand and create, to recognize [Camp Cretaceous] as clearly its own story and its own show. But (season 2) — and if we’re granted further opportunities to tell the story that we have (in season 3) — will keep weaving into the larger story and really inform some things, even in Dominion that will connect to discoveries made that I’m really excited about.”
Although the official synopsis for the movie is still under wraps, Trevorrow promises:
“What these movies are is changing in a way. All of the Jurassic movies have fundamentally been about people who go to an island. And there are dangerous dinosaurs there who very well may harm them. As we take it into a new place where it’s about humans and dinosaurs sharing the planet as we do with animals, it gives us an opportunity to make more character stories with people you know and love and care about.”
Trevorrow wrote the screenplay for Dominion with his long-time collaborator Emily Carmichael. In addition to the legacy characters, Dominion also stars Mamoudou Athie, DeWanda Wise, Daniella Pineda, Justice Smith, and Jake Johnson. Alongside Omar Sy, Scott Haze, Campbell Scott, and Dichen Lachman.
Dominion is a collaboration between Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment. The film is executive produced by Trevorrow and Steven Spielberg. Frank Marshall is producing alongside Pat Crowley.
Jurassic World: Dominion will be unleashed in cinemas on June 10, 2022. Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous Season 2 launches tomorrow on Netflix.
