There are three distinct variations of Velociraptor which were cloned by InGen, not counting sexual dimorphism seen within each individual version. However, despite the surface level variations, each sub-species remains relatively similiar in terms of physical attributes. Each species is roughly 6 feet tall…

Colin Trevorrow Hints Sequels After Jurassic World 3 Are Not out of the Question

Many of us assumed this would be the case but it appears the dinosaurs are not going extinct in Jurassic World 3. Speaking to Variety during the Jurassic World ride grand opening, Jurassic World and Jurassic World 3 writer/director Colin Trevorrow was asked about the future of the Jurassic franchise after the sixth film.

While he words his way around the question if Jurassic World 3 will be the end of the saga, he gives credence to the very real possibility of future films:

“I’m kind of a one movie at a time kind of guy, so my eyes are on this one. And it’s a celebration of everything that has existed in the franchise up until now.”

It was long believed that Universal Pictures only had the rights for six total films during the lead up to Jurassic Park 4, but after ‘World’s’ gigantic success it’s logical they approached the Crichton Estate for a new deal. Jurassic World continues to expand into new territory, with theme park representation, an animated series ‘Camp Cretaceous’, and even a live action spin-off titled ‘Battle at Big Rock’. The franchise is Universal’s equivalent to Star Wars and it makes sense they would wish to continue expanding the stories and films into the future.

We’ve heard buzz about films after Jurassic World 3 for some time now, with some rumours even suggesting the third film would become a two-parter due to its “epic scale”. Jurassic World 3 is slated to begin filming early next year, with a release date of June 2021, although you won’t have to wait that long to see the story continue. ‘Battle at Big Rock’, the live action short film which filmed in Ireland this January, was to debut in front of Hobbs and Shaw. Sadly we’ve since heard that ‘Big Rock’ will not make it front of the latest ‘Fast and the Furious’ film and has been delayed to an unknown date.

Though unsubstantiated, we’ve even heard ‘Big Rock’ is being eyed as a proof-of-concept pitch and unofficial pilot for Jurassic making an eventual TV series debut. Whatever happens we hope the spin-off is officially announced soon.

It’s all too clear Jurassic World 3 isn’t the end and we’re happy to hear it. With that in mind, be sure to let us know what you want after Jurassic World 3 in the Twitter poll above and in the comment section!

  1. I don’t believe there will be sequels set after Jurassic World 3, considering how a large number of dinosaurs, embryos and blood samples were sold to various individuals and companies from all over the globe and a significant number of animals are roaming free on the mainland; it would be physically impossible to recapture them all and transport them to Sanctuary or Isla Sorna and a lame cop-out for the franchise to not go through explore the various consequences of the auction, where humans and dinosaurs now have to coexist together.

    A prequel (either a movie or, more preferably, a miniseries) that delves into the development of Jurassic World from the moment Masrani Global acquires InGen in 1998 to the park’s grand opening in 2005 is a rich area ripe for storytelling. Exploring Simon Masrani’s motivation to build the new park, the illegal R&D on Isla Sorna, the collapse of Sorna’s ecosystem, how Vic Hoskins stopped the flock of pteranodons and the reclamation of Isla Nublar, along with many other events, would be both an incredibly fascinating and exciting time period that deserves to be shown on screen.

    Then there’s the notion for a reboot. After JW3, I can’t think of any other possibility for the franchise to continue in its current iteration without it either going backwards (moving the dinosaurs from the mainland to either Sanctuary or Isla Sorna) or getting too ridiculous (John Sayles human-dinosaur hybrids). Personally speaking, a Jurassic Park Reboot is a pretty reasonable assumption as it allows for more creative opportunities such as a more faithful adaptation of the novels and paleontologically accurate depiction of the dinosaurs.

    Back on the subject of JW3, I’m very excited about it! I’ve really enjoyed both Jurassic World and Fallen and am looking forward as to what comes next. Although if I have one request, please don’t make the trailers so spoilery!

    1. I would love to see a spin-off in which a large number of scientists and the public get fed up with re-created dinosaurs and want to see the real thing. A great deal of funding is put into wormhole technology and the ability to view the past. Probably including travel into the Jurassic or Cretaceous. Adventures happen then.

  2. Before they jump into sequels, I hope they try a spin-off more like Jurassic Park, and less like World.

    If it makes money and people like it, they can then make the direct sequels like Park, and know they’ll make money. I do not want more World. Fallen Kingdom was a disaster!

  3. I’m totally fine with more Jurassic movies, but I think I’d rather see a spin-off or a prequel rather than another sequel.

    Or just wait a decade or so and do a reboot that’s closer to the book. I’d be down for that too.

  4. I’m totally into more films. I didn’t expect it to end after 2021 anyway. And I’m not a fan of that “let’s wait another ten years” opinion. I’m not getting any younger.

  5. Honestly, I think the Jurassic series could be given the Marvel treatment if the writers and producers really tried; I can totally see a multitude of films with different tones and themes set in different points in time being released after JW3. There are a lot of stories that could be told about the Post-Lockwood Estate Incident world! And I’m clearly not the only one who would watch a movie or miniseries about the foundation of Jurassic World.

  6. Let Jurassic rest for a bit after this third instalment… Universal owns the TUROK license now so I think they should work on resurrecting that!

  7. They spent so much money on ILM animations and studio design that is pretty clear they want to launch the franchise towards new markets as TV series.
    I would be interested in a collaboration between Colin Trevorrow and Gore Verbinski on a Rated R mini series, 8 episodes like Escape at Dannemora by Ben Stiller.

  8. I kept hoping there will be more Jurassic movies in the future and I don’t want all of our friends gone forever again like all of the others who went extinct in the past before our favorite one the first one was released all of those years ago!!!!

  9. I would really hate saying goodbye to our dinosaur friends including rexy and blue like what happened to the poor brachiosaurus that didn’t make it off that island.

  10. But if they’re going to make prequels or spin off movie like star wars count me in!!!!! As long as they don’t let that Jurassic symbol for after the next movie

  11. Maybe do a TRUE sequel to JP and TLW that doesn’t retcon the fact that in TLW, all the Nublar Dinosaurs were destroyed… Ask yourself why INGEN wouldn’t just go and catch Rexy and company on Nublar instead of mounting an even more expensive and risky operation to Sorna, UNLESS the Nublar Dinosaurs were all dead… And as if INGEN wouldn’t know if they were dead or not… There ya go Klayton… Figure that one out!

      1. If Trevorrow doesn’t fill in these holes there will be no choice but to separate the films into two, separate canons:
        JP-TLW-JP3
        JP-JW-JWFK-JW3
        There wont be any other way around it.

        1. And if he does it sloppily, the purists will have no choice but to go scorched Earth and retreat back to the first trilogy exclusively.

  12. I want a prequel set between Jurassic Park 3 and Jurassic World. So basically a Jurassic Park 4. I want it to be more like the original Jurassic Park trilogy, but a complete movie, not a TV series. And I want Alan Grant, Malcolm and Sattler to come back. Just make them digitally de-aged, and create an extremely interesting story. I was really upset that we didn’t see more of the original Jurassic movies, so I would LOVE seeing that one. As for spin offs and sequels, if the story is good, go ahead!

  13. While I’d love more Jurassic, I don’t think I’d want more content in the vein of World. I’m partial to Park, if you get my drift. I’d rather turn my brain on than turn it off. That being said, I DO think a Jurassic TV show, given a proper budget, could be awesome. Take 4-6 episode blocks and tell various stories that haven’t been covered in the timeline. Things like the development of Jurassic Park, the InGen activity on Sorna after TLW, Trespasser, the pteranodon cleanup, and the creation of Jurassic World, including rounding up the dinosaurs. You could conceivably end the show with a block of standalone episodes that take place after JW3, consisting of various encounters with dinosaurs in the wild (in vastly different parts of the world) and the overarching theme of how people are dealing with the new status quo. Just my two cents.

  14. After Jurassic World 3, I would definitely agree to live-action movies or series and animated series (in 2D as for “Godzilla: The Series” from 1998 to 2000) taking place between JP3 and JW, TLW and JP3, and between JW and JWFK, or even after “Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom”, some of whose stories will be inspired by comics like “Jurassic Park Dangerous Game” IDW, video games such as “Jurassic Park Trespasser” of 1998 and those canceled as “Jurassic Park Survival “from 2001, deleted scenes like the attacking mosasaur and killing whalers, the t-rex Buck from” The Lost Jurassic Park World “passing his head through the window of Benjamin’s bedroom and scary his family, how the t-rex baby’s paw was broken, how Ajay Sidhu died, what attacked the boat “Dino-Soar” in the mist, early Jurassic Park 3 (spinosaurus, …?), how Ben Hildebrand is dead, how Eric Kirby survived during 8 weeks on Isla Sorna since landing on the tree with Ben until the arrival of his parents and Alan Grant, the adventure of Blue and Rexy / Roberta from the end of Jurassic World until the beginning of the eruption of Mount Sibo; and also what is causing the other scars located on the right side of Rexy / Roberta

    https://i.stack.imgur.com/OLoSJ.png except for the neck and lower jaw, which means she must have had them after her final fight against the 2 velociraptors in Jurassic Park and before the Jurassic World events.
    -I would like there to be in such series: Suchomimus, Pyroraptor, Deinonychus, Utahraptor, Teratophoneus, Albertosaurus, Tarbosaurus, Deinosuchus, Sarcosuchus, Purussaurus, Ornithocheirus (perhaps of wingspan of 12 meters), maybe also see the T-rex fight and defeat the Spinosaurus of JP3, and after defeating it roars like at the final scene of Jurassic Park or at the end of Jurassic World. But most of all, no t-rex dying, no t-rex defeated by another carnivorous dinosaur like giganotosaurus or other. The return of the old characters from the original Jurassic Park trilogy alongside the new characters of the first two Jurassic Worlds: Allan Grant, Ellie Sattler, Tim and Alex Murphy, Ian Malcom and his daughter Kelly Malcom, Sarah Harding, Nick Van Owen, Billy Brennan, and Barry of JW.
    I’d love to see these scenes again (2D animated): the t-rex that kills the 2 raptors and roaring victory in the final Jurassic Park, the t-rex Buck sowing terror in San Diego in “The Lost World Jurassic Park “, the t-rex with Blue later fighting the rex indominus to the mosasaurus in Jurassic World, the t-rex killing the carnotaur, escaping with the other dinosaurs from the basements of Lockwood Manor, killing Eli Mills , repelling another carnotaur, roaring and destroying the DNA container of the indominus rex, and roaring in front of a lion, Blue fighting and killing the indoraptor and roaring from victory in Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom. I’d like to see extended scenes too (be it in animated 2D, or live-action) like the t-rex Buck terrorizing and chasing people, also sowing destruction in San Diego until he feels her offspring, and unpublished as the t-rex with the other dinosaurs escaping from the basements of Lockwood Manor before she kills Eli Mills.

    1. I see the way TV has improved over the years. But I have yet to see a TV show that didn’t damn itself by either dragging on (like TWD) or plain ruining itself with casting changes and lazy scripts… I don’t want that for JP.

  15. I already can see the extra final scene of JW3 after the movie credits:
    Ian Malcom switches off his TV on which you can see the final scene of JW3, ending the movie with the words: “That is one big pile of shit!”.

    Hoping for a reboot or prequel of Jurassic Park rather than extra sequels to Jurassic World.
