In two years' time, Jurassic World 3 will hit cinemas with Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard returning as Owen and Claire. But what’s really excited fans is that the original Jurassic Park trio (Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum) are joining the sequel too. The latter only cameoed in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, but will hopefully have a bigger role in the next film. And now Dern has teased that Jurassic World 3 will “pay homage” to Jurassic Park, so perhaps this means a focus away from the first two Jurassic World films’ Owen and Claire-centric narrative?
Speaking with Total Film, Dern said: “It’s a deep intent both of [director] Colin [Trevorrow] and the entire tribe, including Steven Spielberg, to pay homage to the original and where the franchise has gone from there.”
After highlighting how excited she was to “see how it will all weave together”, the actress admitted Jurassic World 3’s plot “sounds amazing.”
She added: “The idea of bringing back the original cast, in a really beautiful way, it sounds amazing.
“The idea of being back with Sam [Neill] and Jeff [Goldblum] sounds like a dream.”
Meanwhile, Pratt has teased a time jump for Jurassic World 3, which will be set in a Neo-Jurassic Age, as humans and dinosaurs have to learn to coexist.
