Jurassic World Dominion came out in 2022, and though the film didn’t get the critical reception it was expecting, it still made over a billion in the box office, solidifying it as one of the most successful film franchises of all time.
Though it did seem that we wouldn’t be getting any more Jurassic movies, THR is reporting that a new Jurassic World film is in the works, and the movie has been in such deep development that Universal is said to be looking for a release sometime in 2025.
So far, no director has been announced to be taking the helm for the film, but David Koepp, who was the writer of the original Jurassic Park, is said to be coming back to tackle a whole new story which is said to be taking place in a ‘new era’ of the franchise.
Producer Frank Marshall, who had also overseen the Jurassic World trilogy, is also coming back to produce this film, and Steven Spielberg himself is also attached as an executive producer via Amblin Entertainment.
By the end of Dominion, we saw that the dinosaurs had been freed from the park and he humans just ended up co-existing with them (despite how dangerous some of the dinosaurs are). We should expect the continuity to further explore a world with dinosaurs, but I’m interested to see how Koepp would approach the story because ancient locusts are kind of a boring villain for a dinosaur film.
No release date has been set for the next Jurassic World, but the studio is said to be eyeing a 2025 release.
