Velociraptor (Film Universe)
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 Will Be a Jurassic Park Style “Science Thriller”

Entertainment Weekly continues to be full of news today in regards to the Jurassic franchise. In addition to all the new Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom news and photos, they also touched on the next installment when they spoke with Colin Trevorrow about what we might expect with Jurassic World 3. It was announced on March 30th that Trevorrow would return to the director’s chair for Jurassic World 3.

Trevorrow told EW that he has grown to love and cherish the value of the gift he has been given with the franchise over the past few years. He also states that Steven Spielberg asked him to return to direct the final installment of the new trilogy.

Trevorrow calls Jurassic World 3 a “science thriller” and also confims that the characters of Owen Grady and Claire Dearing will return and it sounds like some new characters in Fallen Kingdom may play a role in the next installment.

Trevorrow, who is currently writing Jurassic World 3 with Emily Carmichael (Pacific Rim: Uprising) is mum on plot details but does say the final film will still feature Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard). He adds, “But there’s other characters who we’ll meet in Fallen Kingdom you’ll realize are major characters.”

Trevorrow also says the next film will be most close in tone to Steven Spielberg’s 1993 original. Reveals the director, “If I could contextualize each film, I would say Jurassic World was an action adventure, Fallen Kingdom is kind of a horror suspense film, and Jurassic World 3 will be a science thriller in the same way that Jurassic Park was.

Jurassic World 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 11, 2021.

  1. Yes! I’ll take intellectual dialogue and treating animals like animals any day over action-packed supersaurus nonsense!

  2. I hope it’s not only a ‘science thriller’ because it involves splicing DNA and creating more dinosaurs that aren’t dinosaurs. However I fear that is exactly what it will be.

    As much as I love the franchise, they maybe need to stop trying to link the new films to Jurassic park, the original, as for whatever reason nothing they can produce can come close to it. They said Fallen Kingdom was close to JP in terms of structure and now JW3 is apparently a lot like JP… it can only be a good thing money-making-wise to link any new film to the original, but they need to understand that nothing they produce will be anywhere near as good as JP…

  3. I feel like this is like… something similar to name dropping, or some sort of image building. The FIRST thing he says about HIS future movie is that it’s gonna be just like the first and best in the series? What a claim.

    We’ll see cuz JW was weak duuude. The ONLY reason I understand why it may not have been his fault was because of the studio forcing him to compromise too much, but still. I feel FK will inevitably be better… because it actually has a legit director. Ope.

  4. I hope we go back to basics then. Give us a few solid characters, good acting, good script, awesome ideas, and a few nice action sequences, and I’ll be happy. Jurassic Park and Lost World are the only entries to get this right thus far. Jurassic 3 almost nailed it with some clever ideas and mysteries, but ultimately failed to deliver. Jurassic World was grandiose, but got lost due to the emphasis on the hybrid rather than what should have been the main character: The open park.

  5. This is fantastic news in my opinion. If it closes the franchise (presumably there won’t be a 7th film any time soon) then bringing it full circle seems right. I loved JW because it brought things back to the idea of a theme park which is, of course, the basis of the entire franchise. I am a die hard fan so am sure I’ll love FK too but JW brought back some of the magic of the theme park idea. I kind of want them to try opening another park, in a way. I can’t see that happening – why would they bother??! But the kid in me wants another movie similar to that. Alternatively, I’d like to see a plot similar to the ones in the comic books that followed the original film. So intrigued to see where they take this.

    1. Exactly. Jurassic world made so much money because of the movie taking place in a Dino theme park. But you’re right they messed it up with the i-Rex taking up the majority of the screen time. It’s too bad they had to blow up the Island. The theme park made it feel like it was a real place I could visit.
      Hey maybe they will reboot the franchise after jw3 and take things back to Nublar and forget about the Jurassic world trilogy

  6. Hmm… Dino/Human hybrids maybe? Got this gnawing in the back of my mind these new JP movies have incorporated bits of that early script from a few years ago.

  7. C’mon this is just marketing.
    A director will just say everything to promote one of his upcoming movies.

    Just listen to the audience’s comments and then argue in their way: that’s exactly what they did with FK (closer to JP, more suspenseful, darker…) but what they’ve shown so far was quite transformer-esque.

  8. I’ll believe it when I see it. If I recall, he made very similar statements about Jurassic World and it turned out to be anything BUT intelligent and scientific. I also don’t trust Colin to write an intelligent ‘science thriller’. He’s better at cheesy one-liners.

    A possible bright side, he mentions characters from Fallen Kingdom returning, and if they’re actually good in FK, then this could be a bright spot for the sixth installment.


    1. THATS what I acutally thought FK could be:
      Merging the iconic JP-style “dinosaurs” (which resemble mostly the science from the early 90s) with the updated scientific knowledge about their appearance from today.

      Colin once said that for JW he wanted to stick to the original design of the dinosaurs to keep some sort of continuity within the series (which is argueable). In the movie’s storyline the discrepancy between nowadays scientific knowledge and the “wrong” picture of dinosaurs is explained with incomplete DNA and the filling of the gaps in the genetic code with code from other animals.

      As Colin then said that the premise of FK would be that cloning dinosaurs isn’t in the hands of InGen anymore – it has become open source – I thought this would be perfect to show other companys which are able to recreate more realistic dinosaurs where dromaeosaurids actually have feathers. It could have been a path where the franchise actually returns to its roots to show dinosaurs as real as possible.

      While having the iconic JP-appearance with Blue or other species from InGen, we could also see much more real ones by rival companys.

      Unfortunately Universal has chosen a very different path to present rather monsters than animals.

  10. Lol nobody likes Collin. What does Steven see in him? Seriously his writing and direction makes me cringe and roll my eyes. His writing doesn’t fit the Jurassic series

  11. I’m thinking after Jurassic World 3, there would be a fresh start on the Jurassic Park franchise. I’m thinking Apocalypse : A Jurassic World Story

  12. I was hoping the series was going to take a page from the Planet of the Apes book and the final movie would be more of a dinosaurs take over the earth story. Life finds a way?
