Universal Pictures has confirmed Dominion will debut to the world on June 10 in 2022.
That’s a long time to wait, but we’re sure it’ll be worth it.
The news was unveiled on social media with a new and eerie poster for the film, which confirms stars from the original film franchise, Sam Neil, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern will be returning.
The rumour that the original cast would return has been circulating for some time, but it looks like things are now set in stone.
The first inclining that we’d get both worlds of Jurassic Park and Jurassic World began when Chris Pratt said the third instalment would literally knock our socks off.
Pratt, who plays Owen Grady in the newer trilogy, told Variety: “Man, I can’t tell you anything, but I can tell you it’s going to blow your mind. It’s going to be the biggest and best yet. They spared no expense and they’re bringing everybody back.”
‘Everybody’ was clearly a nod to the big three from Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III: Neill, Dern and Goldblum.
Dern will be back as Dr. Ellie Satler, Neill will return as Dr. Alan Grant, and Goldblum will reprise his role as the inimitable Dr. Ian Malcolm, all of whom featured in the very first Jurassic Park film back in 1993.
In an interview with Empire, director Colin Trevorrow explained how he needed to establish the best way to continue their legacy.
He said: “We’d have to come up with a reason why Ellie, Malcolm and Grant all went to the theme park on the exact same day it broke down – again. The next film allows the legacy characters to be a part of the story in an organic way.”
Early last year, in an interview with MTV News, Pratt said the film would have a considerable time jump and would really mix things up a bit.
He said: “When I heard the pitch, I was blown away. I can’t believe they found a way to deliver on the promise of the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom… The island is blown up.
“The animals are out. We can’t put ’em back in the box. What are we gonna do? How is – not only these dinosaurs, but this technology moving forward – going to affect the planet? And we jump forward, it’s like, ‘Oh! Oh right! Oh damn.'”
