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…

Reports Suggest Jurassic World 3 Filmed in Ireland This January and Bryce Dallas Howard Just Added Fuel to That Fire!

Some surprising news has caught our attention: Apparently, reports hit Irish outlets back in January that Jurassic World 3 had been filming in forested locations just outside of Dublin, and we all missed the news. Our bad. Ireland based media site Joe.ie recently sat down with Bryce Dallas Howard while promoting her role in the upcoming ‘Rocketman’ movie, when they moved the conversation to Jurassic World.

Check out the exchange below (around 4:44):

When asked if it’s true that any part of Jurassic World 3 has been filming around and in Ireland, Bryce played coy before breaking into a smile and saying “I can’t answer that question”, then breaking into a laugh that all but says there’s more to the story. “I can’t say anything” she playfully continued, before stating with with a certain confidence “I’m not saying no”.

While Bryce doesn’t outright confirm the rumours, she more or less telegraphed the answer is yes. So what are the rumours we missed back in January? Geek Ireland reports they filmed outside of Dublin, in an accessible but forested location and had this to say:

“Speaking of dinosaurs, dinosaur animatronics have been spotted at the location, meaning this Irish location will almost certainly be featured in action sequences, as opposed to simple pickups and establishing shots (it is not uncommon for movies to film such shots in separate areas from where the main action takes place). Due to the aforementioned NDA, we cannot specify which species feature just yet, but re-watching the end of Fallen Kingdom should give you a good idea. Very specific props from Fallen Kingdom have also been spied on set, indicating the presence of a character who has appeared in both previous Jurassic World films in the Irish-shot scenes.”

The fact that this all played out a few months back without more coverage or leaked images is pretty shocking, and can likely be attributed to top notch set security and what we assume was a shorter shoot schedule. It’s way too early to begin filming Jurassic World 3 in full, the script is assuredly still being written, and reports to us suggest pre-production swings into full throttle this Fall at Pinewood Studios. In fact, this might not be Jurassic World 3 at all, but the mysterious ‘Jurassic World: Battle at Big Rock’.

As previously reported, Jurassic World Allosaurus and Nasutoceratops toys have hit shelves branded with “As seen in Battle at Big Rock”. ‘Big Rock’ is rumoured to be a live action short film debuting this Summer, and perhaps is a Jurassic World 3 precursor. While the existence of the live action short film is surprising, it makes more sense than Jurassic Park 6 filming in January of 2019 when it’s to release in 2021.

Update: thanks to sluething by Reel News Hawaii, some images from photojournalist Padraig O’Reilly have been uncovered, revealing that filming took place at Powerscourt Estate! Note the ‘District of Columbia’ license plate on the red van, likely confirming a US setting.

Whether the reports from Ireland are Jurassic World 3, Battle at Big Rock, or something else entirely we’re excited by this news, and can’t wait to learn more soon!

  1. I don’t really mind when they film, as long is it is ready when they say it will be and it’s not literally called “Jurassic world 3” after the redundancy the titles already have

    1. Yes thank you I agree 100%. Something about calling the 6th film in the franchise with a 3…it just annoys me somehow lol.

  2. It’s gotta be for the Jurassic World the ride attraction for Universal Studios Hollywood. Maybe also segments for the que as well.

    1. Can’t be – Bryce says she wasn’t involved with the Ireland filming – and why would ride queue videos be filmed on location, full crew, with animatronics. I think Outpost nailed it when they say it’s not Jurassic World 3, but Battle at Big Rock. This video really breaks it down:

  3. Didn’t the director say he considers this to be the 6th film? I really hope we can all stop calling the 6th film as the 3rd film.at somepoint

  4. In this sequel of the Jurassic movies we would like the animatronics to be just like Stain Winston style in the way he did it in the first three movies. We would like for the T-Rex pair to have more screen shots just like the Velociraptors did in Jurassic park 3 and I would like to see some Male dinosaurs just like from the lost world Jurassic park because there were males and females including the Buck Male T-Rex and female from the lost world.
