The first Jurassic trilogy was a decent mix of Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park III), Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park) and Laura Dern (Jurassic Park, cameo in Jurassic Park III) and after the brief but satisfying appearance of Goldblum’s Ian Malcom in Jurassic World:Fallen Kingdom, it’s very welcome news that the three will return in Colin Trevorrow’s final entry in the Jurassic World trilogy, and not in minor roles either.
Trevorrow revealed the exciting news at a Collider-hosted screening of Jurassic World at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood on Tuesday night. And not only will Dern, Neill and Goldblum all be back, but they’ll all have sizable roles in the sequel. While Goldblum appeared in a small role in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Dern only returned to the franchise for a brief cameo in Jurassic Park III. Dern’s popularity as an actress has soared in the interim, and audiences will surely be tickled by the return of Dr. Ellie Sattler.
Plot details for Jurassic World 3 remain encased in amber, but Trevorrow will direct and co-write the script with Emily Carmichael (Pacific Rim Uprising). When we last left the Jurassic World movies, a dinosaur auction had gone horribly wrong and the dinosaurs kept in the mansion had been unleashed upon the world by a little clone girl who felt a kinship with the animals.
With music by Michael Giacchino based on the classic score by John Williams, Skywalker Sound and ILM on duty we’re excited to see what Trevorrow and the main casts of Jurassic Park and Jurassic World bring to us. Now for Lexi, Tim, Kelly and Eric to make their triumphant returns.
