Next Jurassic World Film Taps Rogue One Director to Helm

Gareth Edwards had taken a huge break after the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and though the film isn’t perfect, there was still a lot to love about The Creator. Now it looks like Edwards is going to be taking on another huge IP with dinosaurs—and no, it isn’t Godzilla.

As per Deadline, Edwards has been tapped to direct the next Jurassic World film. Edwards was said to be the next choice after Deadpool 2 director David Leitch, and he was said to have wowed producers Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall.

No synopsis has been released for the next Jurassic World film, but the movie is said to be taking place in a completely new era; and we’re not expecting Chris Pratt or Bryce Dallas Howard to make a return—neither should we expect anyone from the OG cast like Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum to come back either.

Though the Jurassic World movies had not been critical darlings, they all did major bank in the box office, and Universal is pretty much committed to delivering more of these dinosaur films. With Dominion, the humans were left to co-exist with the dinosaurs loose on the Earth, and the next movie should show us just what kind of world the people have been living in after years of the dinosaurs once again making the Earth their home.

Does everyone live in domes so they can be safe from T-Rexes and pterodactyls? Can humans even still travel by sea safely if there are massive mosasaurs roaming the oceans?

With Edwards onboard, I’m sure we’re going to be in for a visual feast. Fingers crossed we get more details soon. The next Jurassic World movie is set to release on July 2, 2025.
