Last week, while promoting his upcoming movie Isle of Dogs, Jeff Goldblum teased the potential return of Dr. Ellie Sattler in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. He told ET on the red carpet that he would be thrilled if the character returned:
Laura Dern has expressed for years now that she would happily return to the franchise, and with franchise veteran Jeff Goldblum now teasing it as a possibility, it might not be too long before we see paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler dealing with dinosaurs again.
In an interview with Andy Cohen, Jeff Goldblum further teased the character’s return by hinting at their reunion in the Jurassic World 3, which is slated to release in June of 2021.
An caller on the show asked him to clarify if he was serious when he mentioned the return of her character, which led to a rather coy response. Watch for yourself below:
His demeanor definitely shifts when the question is asked, and his expression hints that this may be more than a rumour. The actor says:
“I don’t know for sure – I can’t divulge anything… but maybe she will… There’s going to be another one, which some people may or may not be in. That’s all I can say.”
This is by no means a confirmation of Ellie’s return in the upcoming sequel, but it is beginning to sound like both Laura Dern and Sam Neill may have a cameo appearance in Jurassic World 3. But what do you think? Let us know in the comments section below!
