We realize this sounds completely ridiculous, but here it goes: Jurassic World: Dominion will be released on June 10, 2022. While that sounds very far into the future, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom came three years after Jurassic World in 2015, and now the third movie is coming four years after 2018's Fallen Kingdom. Originally set for a release date of June 2021, Covid-19 halted the movie's production.

Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is back for the new installment; he also cowrote the script along with Emily Carmichael. He's not the only one returning.

Original Jurassic Park Trio Play a Very Crucial Role in Jurassic World 3: Dominion

Original Jurassic Park Trio Play a Very Crucial Role in Jurassic World 3: Dominion
In bringing franchise heroes Dr. Ian Malcolm, Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler back into the prehistoric fray, Jurassic World 3 is aiming to provide the same kind of ensemble thrills as last year's superhero get-together, Avengers: Endgame. When their inclusion was first announced, many feared fleeting cameos similar to Ian Malcolm's involvement in Fallen Kingdom, but director Colin Trevorrow has now revealed that this is far from the case, suggesting their roles are far more important than we anticipate.

"This is the movie I've been waiting to make since the beginning. It's the one we have spent the past two movies building to. It really was part of a larger story and part of a design. I think people may be underestimating the size and importance of Laura Dern and Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum's characters in this movie; it is very much an ensemble. That element

Also in these photos, we capture a glimpse of what it's like to film during a pandemic, with Universal paying an extra $5 million for health and safety precautions.

The details surrounding both locations see in these latest photos are largely unknown, but we do know that a plane crash will occur at some point in the movie which results in our heroes trapped in the picturesque-yet-deadly snow-covered landscape.
