If you thought that the Jurassic World franchise - and Jurassic Park failing that - would end with the premiere of Jurassic World: Dominion, scheduled for June 11, 2021, in the US, you were wrong. The most famous dinosaur movie saga of all time returns next year with Chris Pratt at the helm and, according to its producer Frank Marshall, is just the beginning.

Asked by Collider, Frank Marshall has denied that Dominion is going to be the endpoint of the franchise and, at the same time, has clarified that it is simply the "beginning of a new era". Remember that the premiere will hit theaters after Jurassic World (2015) and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018). Colin Trevorrow will be behind the scenes, while the cast will consist of Chris Pratt, who will now be joined by Bryce Dallas Howard and fan favorites Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neill, and Laura Dern, among others. But what about the next chapter?
At this point it is difficult to answer the question of what will happen to the dinosaurs when the Jurassic World trilogy is complete. But, to quote Marshall again, "will be for quite some time." If you recall, Owen Grady, Claire Dearing, and little Maisie Lockwood released the prehistoric creatures at the end of The Fallen Kingdom, causing humans and dinosaurs to coexist in the same habitat. We have already had a first look at that 'new normal' thanks to the short Battle at Big Rock, also by Trevorrow.

Of course, it remains to be seen what use the villain Dr. Wu (B.D. Wong) and the company will make of his dinosaurs. Far from looking like the property denouement beginning with Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park (1993), this could be more of a new renaissance. But will we meet new characters in the next movie? Will you continue betting the saga for Owen and Claire and for the trio formed by Alan Grant, Ian Malcolm, and Ellie Sattler? Time will tell. At the moment, you can enjoy Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom through Rakuten TV and Amazon Prime Video, respectively.
