Chris Pratt Has Talked ‘Jurassic World 3’ with Laura Dern and Hints at Dr. Ellie Sattler’s Return!

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ roared into theaters less than a year ago, but fans are hungry for news pertaining to the future. Thankfully Chris Pratt, who plays the raptor wrangler Owen Grady, has us covered. Excitedly speaking to Josh Horowitz of MTV News about what’s next for the Jurassic Park franchise now that dinosaurs are off the islands, Horowitz pressed him about the potential of a Jurassic Park character reunion.

Check it out below (starting around 12:15):

They also talk about how Dr. Ian Malcolm will have a more interesting role, outside of a courtroom and perhaps interacting with dinosaurs once again. Chris Pratt doesn’t hold back, and while this remains unconfirmed officially, it seems all but certain the original Jurassic Park characters are coming back – especially Laura Dern as Ellie Sattler as Chris Pratt directly acknowledges talking Jurassic World 3 with her recently!

This all comes after Bryce Dallas Howard strongly hinted Dr. Sattler would make a return, essentially making this all appear to be a poorly kept secret everyone wants to spill the beans on. The original Jurassic Park love is very real! Chris Pratt also confirms he knows the entire Jurassic World 3 story – and while he was tight-lipped, he is incredibly excited and “blown away” by the finale soon to come as they “jump forward” after Fallen Kingdom.

The original Jurassic Park cast connections doesn’t stop there, this morning Sam Neill, Dr. Alan Grant himself, tweeted a “reunion” photo of himself with Laura Dern. The tweet has since been retweeted by the Offical Jurassic World Twitter account. Perhaps just some dot connecting on our part, but those ripple rings in the water seem to be getting much bigger!

How do you think the original Jurassic Park characters can come back, and what do you want to see in Jurassic World 3? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below and on our forums.

Walmart released a commerical during the Golden Globes this past Sunday for their new grocery pickup service, which allows customers to order groceries online and have it delivered to their car. By the end of 2019, Walmart hopes to have 2,140 online grocery pickup sites. The promotional commercial released features iconic vehicles from TV shows and movies such as the Batmobile, the Ghostbusters ambulance, Knight Rider Firebird, Dumb & Dumber “Mutt Cutts” van, Scooby Doo Mystery Machine and most importantly, the Ford Explorer from Jurassic Park.

“We not only picked famous cars from iconic movies we knew would be instantly recognizable to our customers — and launched the campaign during one of the film industry’s most popular awards shows — but we also worked with a variety of different Hollywood studios to gain access to these vehicles,” Messing explained. “This helped ensure the famous cars looked just like what our customers knew from the films, while demonstrating the ease, speed and convenience of the service and that it’s for everyone, regardless of what car you drive.”

Below, please enjoy the 90 second commerical from Walmart featuring the Jurassic Park Ford Explorer and compys!

Help bridge the gap between the public and the Crystal Palace Dinosaurs with important fundraiser

Here at Jurassic Outpost, we love all things Dinosaur, and our friend Tom from The Jurassic Park Podcast made us aware of a very important fundraiser which is going on in London, UK, RIGHT NOW to help preserve and share to the public a piece of Dinosaur History.

Tom recently learned that the Friends of the Crystal Palace Park Dinosaurs are fundraising for an amazing project. The Crystal Palace Dinosaurs are important, forming a part of dinosaur history. The dinosaurs were first revealed in 1854 as part of the Crystal Palace Exhibition, and are believed to be some of the most historically accurate models in the world. Rated at Grade 1, the sculptures have the same heritage value in the United Kingdom as somewhere like Buckingham palace. However, there is more than just dinosaurs within the park. There is a collection of distinct prehistoric, extinct creatures which visitors to the park can enjoy.

Previously, visitors to the park have only been able to see the dinosaurs from afar, with the creatures being situated on an island in the middle of a lake. However, this could be about to change. If the Friend’s fundraiser is successful, then a bridge across to the dinosaurs may be constructed, allowing members of the public an opportunity to get up and close with real pieces of history. This fundraiser not only provides an opportunity to renovate and provide accessibility to these incredible monuments, it also provides an opportunity for us to make paleo-history more accessible for generations to come. If you are a UK fan, we really recommend you check this out.

The Dinosaurs are a unique set of sculptures in Crystal Palace Park. They are located on islands which the public can’t usually get on to. The sculptures are Grade I listed heritage assets and are internationally important, as they were a pivotal event in the history of science.

The Friends of the Crystal Palace Dinosaurs are frequently asked ‘Can we get onto the islands, get up close & find out more about the Dinosaurs?’ This is currently possible only a few times per year, when we pay to have an expensive and ugly temporary bridge erected.

We need a new, permanent bridge. A physical bridge to the island will enable us to build imaginative bridges to the past.

With a bridge we can deliver an exciting, interactive programme of events on ‘Dinosaur Island’ on a regular basis. We will run tours by experts in history, science, art and conservation. Volunteers will be able to get stuck in to projects around the sculptures. Gardeners and conservators can keep the site in shape.

J.A. Bayona will not have an official role with Jurassic World 3

One of the biggest films of 2018, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is finally being released on DVD and Blu-ray in the United Kingdom on November 5th. In anticipation of the home release, Fallen Kingdom director J.A. Bayona and writer/executive producer Colin Trevorrow spoke with The Hollywood News about the middle film in the franchise’s second trilogy and even talked about their roles on the next film tentatively being referred to as “Jurassic World 3”.

It was announced earlier this year that Colin Trevorrow, who directed and wrote the fourth installment of the franchise and the first film of the second trilogy, Jurassic World, would be returning to the director’s chair for Jurassic World 3. The next installment in the franchise is set to hit theaters on June 11, 2021.

Trevorrow has been very involved with the creation of this new trilogy, and is the director on the next film, but what about Bayona’s possible role in the future of the franchise? Will he have any creative say or have an official role with Jurassic World 3? According to Bayona, it doesn’t sound like he will be involved, at least not in an official capacity. But he does leave the door open for a possible return to the franchise if there is another film. Jurassic Park 7 anyone?

J.A. Bayona – “Not really. I think it is great that Colin, who started it all, finishes the story. I would love to come back some day to the Jurassic universe but I think it is time for Colin to finish what he started.”

Though that doesn’t mean Bayona will not be consulted for the next film as Trevorrow goes on to acknowledge that he is now part of the “Jurassic” family.

Colin Trevorrow – “I am directing it but believe me I will be calling JA regularly to consult because he is part of our family now. When Steven Spielberg agreed that I wasn’t going to do the second one, he asked me if I would do the third and I promised that I would. I asked him to trust me that this choice was going to pay off and he did. He was a fan of Bayona as well. And I feel very good right now because I think that the choice did pay off. JA has directed a fantastic film. But it hasn’t changed my mind that we need to bring a strong new voice into each one of these films and for the third one I am bringing in a different writer, Emily Carmichael, who is working with me. I think doing that is something that keeps things fresh.”

Both Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom were box office monsters having grossed nearly $3 billion worldwide combined. It is a safe bet that Universal Pictures is pretty confident that Jurassic World 3 will continue that track and be another highly successful film for them. Trevorrow and newcomer Emily Carmichael are currently hard at work writing the script and targeting a shoot start date of early 2020.

Vibrating water glass from Jurassic Park has been recreated by Jurassic Collectables

Our good friends at Jurassic Collectables has something very special to share today with the Jurassic fandom. They have recreated the iconic vibrating water glass from 1993’s Jurassic Park with some assistance from Oscar Award winning Michael Lantieri, who worked on the special effects for the film.

After 25 years, Jurassic Collectables has recreated the famous Jurassic Park vibrating glass of water seen in the Main Road Attack. After sourcing the exact same cup used on screen, Jurassic Collectables contacted Michael Lantieri to find out the exact make & pitch of guitar string and the accompanying hardware.

The project involved Jurassic Collectables building a contraption to keep tension in the wire, allowing vibration to travel from the string to the water. See the video for yourself today on Jurassic Collectables.


Make sure to tune in at 4PM GMT today to watch the premiere video of Jurassic Collectables latest creation. The video can be seen here:

Jurassic Park returning to select theaters in September for 25th Anniversary

Jurassic Park, the 1993 classic film that started it all and spawned four sequels so far with a fifth sequel due in 2021, is set to return to select theaters this September in celebration of the film’s 25th Anniversary. In a report from Entertainment Weekly, Jurassic Park will return in more than 500 theaters nationwide for three special days, Sunday September 16th, Tuesday September 18th and Wednesday September 19th.

It’s been 25 years since the gates of Jurassic Park opened the first time, welcoming viewers into a time-lost amusement park filled with beautiful dinosaurs, terrifying dinosaurs, and soaring John Williams music. To celebrate the big anniversary, Steven Spielberg’s original film will be returning to more than 500 theaters nationwide for three days: Sunday, Sept. 16, Tuesday, Sept. 18, and Wednesday, Sept. 19. Tickets can be purchased online at Fathom Events’ website or at participating theater box offices.

In addition to the seeing Jurassic Park on the big screen, audiences will also get to see a special 17-minute fan film remake of the Steven Spielberg classic. The fan film reportedly was created by Jurassic fans from around the entire world and our guess it is a culmination of all the fan videos that the official website had asked for earlier in the year.

Entertainment Weekly also received an exclusive rare on-set photo from Amblin showing Spielberg, Sam Neill, BD Wong, Richard Attenborough and Jeff Goldblum preparing for the hatchery scene. Please take a look at the exclusive photo below.

Please visit Fathom Events for more information once they post it. Also, make sure to check Fandango and see if your local theater has any showings, as some already have tickets available for purchase.
