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…

‘Jurassic World 3’ or ‘Jurassic Park 6’? Colin Trevorrow Shares Photo with Writing Partner Emily Carmichael

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.

Not to mention the numerous hints being given by various cast members, it seems likely that paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler may return. But of course, that’s just speculation.

“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.

  1. Emily: “And we HAVE to have a love side-story. Owen and Claire have to get married. But then Bryce finds out that genetics have been used to create the ultimate man and she becomes torn between the two. And there has to be staring, long, creepy staring. It really shows the obsession/danger/excitement. Oh, and throw a few dinosaurs in there too so the woman can save them both…”

    1. Colin: “ Yes great ideas. Also, let’s scrap out Isabella Sermon’s character, after we used her in fallen kingdom just to kick off “JP6” we don’t need her anymore. What you say? Yes, the Dilophosaur scene may go too. No one would want to see that anyway. Oh, and throw in a couple of new useless one-dimensional side characters who are annoying and completely irrelevant to the plot other than opening some doors. Sweet! This gon’ be great…”

  2. I hope so much that these elements will be introduced in Jurassic World 3:
    -The music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOpPVJrpw-A
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hs-7FchSNE
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6hZ5JO58_M&list=RDkcxX-ggmg1w&index=8
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9D8p2YL38I
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcxX-ggmg1w&list=RDkcxX-ggmg1w;
    -The Jurassic World 3 introduction scene similar to that of Jurassic Park 3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHlHcy9ML58 where “Park” is replaced by “World”.
    -The return of the old characters from the original Jurassic Park trilogy played by the same actors, alongside the new characters from the first Jurassic World episodes: Allan Grant, Ellie Sattler, Tim, Alex, Malcolm, Sarah Harding, Kelly and Nick Van Owen of The Lost World, Billy Brennan, and perhaps Charlie, the son of Ellie Sattler seen in JP3, and Barry of JW.
    -Blue meeting Alan Grant where the latter, at first he distrusts her but later learns to trust her and eventually team up with Blue when she asks him for help, for example to save Owen Grady.
    Alan Grant could also use his resonance chamber of a raptor seen in Jurassic Park 3, to communicate with Blue or also to call him in case he is threatened by either a predator or mischievous humans or other type of help.
    -Blue with a male raptor similar to Jurassic Park 3, where in the end they mate and have offspring.
    -I want so much that Rexy (or other Tyrannosaurus like Junior, the young Tyrannosaurus of the Lost World Jurassic Park) takes his revenge against the Spinosaurus of JP3, and wins the fight against this Spino. And after defeating the spinosaurus, he roars like at the final stage of Jurassic Park or at the end of Jurassic World https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ii70L1ep1hk .
    But most importantly, no t-rex dies in Jurassic World 3, not even Rexy if it appears. Similarly no t-rex is defeated by another carnivorous dinosaur such as giganotosaurus.
    -The appearance of suchomimus, pyroraptor, Deinonychus, Utahraptor, Postosuchus, Tarbosaurus, Deinosuchus, Sarcosuchus or purussaurus, and brachiosaurus in a similar scene at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lK9ZAYBgbBs .
    Mosasaur attacking and killing the whalers.
    -I will not be against a fight between the megalodon (or pliosaur) and the mosasaur, where the latter will come out victorious.
    I do not want Blue to die in Jurassic World 3, just as I do not want Rexy to die in the third Jurassic World.
    A meeting between Alan Grant (with or Ian Malcom) and Rexy:
    There would be an exchange of glances between Grant and Rexy.
    Rexy recognizes Alan by the smell while Grant recognizes Rexy by the scars caused by a velociraptor in Jurassic Park.
    At first Grant is frightened but soon after reassures himself by remembering that it was this t-rex that saved him once.
    After a calm and respectful exchange of glances Rexy calmly leaves, leaving reassured and happy Alan who does not leave her eyes until she disappears in the distance.
    Blue could team up with Rexy again to face various antagonists like malevolent humans or even better the spinosaurus to which they will come out victorious like in Jurassic World where they triumphed against the indominus rex.

    1. Dude… I love your enthusiasm but if you ingrain this in your head too much you are going to be SEVERELY disappointed, cause most of these characters/plots ain’t happening.

    2. I think my IQ got lowered from reading this nonsense. A lot of those characters you named will serve no purpose to the story or plot and they cant cram all that in on a 2 hour movie.

      Most importantly, If the fan favorite and most requested dinosaur Spinosaurus does return, it sure as hell better not die, get defeated or downgraded in any way, shape or form. It’s established as the dominant apex predator do doing so would retcon and contradict JP3. Other giant theropods deserve the screentime not the T.rex. They need more attention and if pushing around the well known theropod is the way, then so be it.

  3. There are three different Ben’s in this comments section. THREE! Are you all seriously gonna keep ignoring this? Benposting is real.

  4. I don’t think you could call the latest films a reboot at all. Don’t think it’s ever been considered as such by anyone except people who didn’t know either way. To me, that word has always been used for a whole new canon seperate from the original or any other versions. Unless I’m mistaken.

    Jurassic World is simply the carry on of Jurassic Park, with a different title to express a new, unique era for the story. But the same story, still.

    1. Well, “Jurassic World” is being used because “Jurassic Park” apparently goes back to the Crichton Estate when JW3/JP6 comes out.

      So.

    2. I think the better term should be soft-reboot, in which its still the same continuity, but we are following new characters and a new story arc.

      1. I wouldn’t even call it a soft reboot. I think it’s a sequel that Universal marketed as a reboot. Calling jurassic world the “first film” (even though it’s really the fourth) gives the impression that it’s a fresh new series rather than the fourth, fifth, ect. But marketing aside, these are clearly sequels and I think the directors are aware of that.

    3. Sorna must be addressed. It was name dropped in FK, so we can’t just assume the original sequels are being ignored anymore… UNLESS, there’s a reboot Sorna too and we’ll see or hear more of it in JW3…

  5. Watching Shape of Water last night, I thought the writing/dialog had a kind of “intelligence” and quality to the jokes that felt in line with JP1.
    Probably explained that badly, but that’s what I am most hoping for.

    1. Just saw this movie tonight.

      I totally figured out the plot of 3. Watch. It’s going to revolve around the fact that mr lockwell cloned his daughter! Masie is a fricken clone. Do you want to know the big nugget? The nanny, is going to be the REAL daughter. I mean that would be a fricken killer storyline!

  6. I think the plot of the next movie is going to revolve around the cloning of the little girl. I totally think the nanny was the grandfathers daughter. I would say she got estranged by the way. I think we were all missing the big picture here. They cloned a fricken person!

  7. Jurassic World is the fourth film in the franchise. I don’t care what anyone else says or how universal insists on marketing the new films. It is not a spin off, a remake or even a reboot. It is the fourth film. I believe universal felt that the fifth installment would feel fresher by referring to it as the second film and passing Jurassic world off as being the “first film”. But Jurassic World is not the first film. This to me is all marketing. The series seems far more tired when you market fallen kingdom as being the fifth movie (which is what it actually is), rather than insisting that it is the second movie. They intended originally for Jurassic World to be Jurassic Park 4. It was even originally titled that. But no matter how Universal tries to market the new movies, they are in Fact sequels to the Jurassic Park franchise and a continuation of that franchise. The director of fallen kingdom even said in an interview that it was “the fifth chapter” in the saga. Universal is marketing this as if it is a separate franchise but the directors clearly realize that these are in fact sequels. I’ve been saying this forever and have been “corrected” many times by people who weren’t even alive when the first three films came out that this is a whole new franchise, even been called an idiot for saying Jurassic World is the fourth film. What I think it comes down to is that people are so used to constant reboots and remakes and spin offs and shared universes that they insist that the new films are just that, and couldn’t possibly be dimply sequels. They can title the next film Jurassic World 3, it is still the sixth film in the franchise and is in fact Jurassic Park 6.

      1. JW is still the fourth film. You can view it as a direct sequel if you choose, but the second and third films are still canon. The director of JW confirmed that in an interview. Of course the mention of Sorna is referring to the second island. That obviously wasn’t referencing anything else.

  8. I just wish they’d bring David Koepp back into the writing team, at least, for the big finale. He was the one who started it all, after all.

  9. Pacific Rim: Uprising is a big pile of shit… If for JW:Fallen Kingdom they had everything to make a great movie: practical effects, a very successful previous movie, a good director and photography director, and still they made very dumb mistakes with the script.. I have little faith in this 3rd one to be honest. I had high expectations for the previous one and I felt they let us down. They are more focuss in selling toys that giving us a great movie. I will still have some hope that it has something good.. at least the set up is intereting..but I wiuld be surprissed if they dont f–ck it up again with a dumb script

  10. I have absolutely no high hopes for this franchise after seeing Fallen Kingdom. Everything feels so artificial from the convoluted story and unrealistic acting to the unneeded complete cgi shots. I don’t want to see stupid over the top action. Bring it back to earth like in JP and TLW even.

    FK felt like a Marvel movie with hero humans and hero dinosaurs vs one dimensional human villains and a very dissappointing villain dinosaur.

    The creators should realise… (bring on the backlash) the dinosaurs are (in a way) secondary. It should be about the story of the characters first and foremost (I don’t even want to see Bryce and Pratt anymore). Bring back the suspense and the sense of discovery. I don’t need to see cgi dinosaurs battling cgi dinosaurs moving and rolling like Transformers. It’s so tired.

  11. Can we all at least agree that letting ‘Little Miss Nobody’ write the script for a Jurassic film is like building a super car then having a Six year old drive it on show day? I mean come on! Writers should start small and work their way up!

    STOP CHEAPING OUT ON SCRIPTS!!!!!!!!!!

  12. I’m glad to see the community waking up to how terrible these scripts have been since JP3. Looks like we’re getting another stinker here. It’s time to let the franchise die or give it someone competent.
