One of this Summer’s largest blockbusters Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has now released on digital and DVD/Blu-Ray, and with the Box Office numbers currently making it the fourth highest grossing movie domestically this year, it’s no surprise that the third movie in the Jurassic World trilogy is already in the works.
Set for release on June 11 2021, Jurassic World 3 is being penned by Colin Trevorrow and newcomer Emily Carmichael, who is best known for her work on Pacific Rim: Uprising.
Today Colin shared a photo of Emily and himself in France, where they met to discuss the sequel’s story.

While the photo’s intention is not to reveal anything about the story, what’s interesting is that Colin referred to the movie as Jurassic Park 6.
The Jurassic World trilogy stands as a reboot of a once popular franchise and successfully brought it back into mainstream culture. Reboot by definition does not mean remake, and the films continue on the same timeline established in the original trilogy. Dr. Henry Wu and Dr. Ian Malcolm are two characters from the original trilogy that have returned in the new movies, and this small nod by Colin could mean that we will see an even deeper connection to the original Jurassic Park in Emily and Colin’s story.
“You can’t put it back in the box!” The ending of Fallen Kingdom sees dinosaurs now spread across the world, owned by various parties and being used for a varying number of tasks. And as Mill’s put it, there is no going back – not just with the animals, but the technology to make new ones.
What’s in store for Jurassic Park 6? There is a world of possibilities for where Emily and Colin could take the story, but one thing’s for sure: this will be the closing film in the current trilogy.
For more from Emily Carmichael, be sure to give her short film Stryka a watch, which she wrote and directed.
