A new photo from Jurassic World Dominion has been released. In the image, we get a new look at Chris Pratt who’s reprising his role as Owen Grady from the previous films. He’s standing alongside franchise newcomer DeWanda Wise, whose role hasn’t yet been revealed. Once the photo was released, Pratt took to Instagram to express his excitement over working with Wise.
“Cannot wait to share the silver screen with the great and powerful DeWanda Wise as she makes an entrance you will never forget. Blessed. Humbled. Grateful,” Pratt teased. It looks like Pratt and Wise will be teaming up to take on a Jurassic threat in the new film.
Dominion is set four years after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom when genetically engineered dinosaurs were auctioned off around the world and released on the U.S. mainland. It brings back several stars from the previous films including Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Danielle Pineda, Isabella Sermon, Justice Smith, Omar Sy, and BD Wong. Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum are also back to reprise their roles as legacy characters from the first Jurassic Park film.
“The first thing that we shot … it was a scene with me and Laura Dern and Sam Neill and we were – I can’t tell you much – but we were all day in a very tight, enclosed space,” Goldblum previously teased of the surprises that are in store. “You’ll see – it’s a mystery you’ll solve when you see [the movie.] The three of us were in a tiny little space and we were being menaced by – I can’t even tell you – a surprising faction of prehistoric creatures that you’ve never seen before.”
Director Colin Trevorrow also teased that the Jurassic Park crew will meet up with the Jurassic World team at some point, but not before first letting each of them delve into their own stories. As Trevorrow told Total Film, “They’re not together the entire time, but we are following both of their stories equally, and you have a sense that they’re going to collide at a certain point. There’s this tension. It’s not structured necessarily in a way that we’re used to seeing our Hollywood movies structured. But it works.”
Trevorrow helms Jurassic World Dominion using a screenplay co-written with Emily Carmichael. Other newcomers to the franchise along with DeWanda Wise include Mamoudou Athie, Scott Haze, Dichen Lachman, and Campbell Scott. Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley produced.
Jurassic World Dominion will be released in movie theaters on June 10, 2022. This will not be the final Jurassic World film as the movie is meant to be the “start of a new era” of films with humans adjusting to a new life with dinosaurs on the mainland. A prologue for the film has been released teasing what this will be like as a T-Rex wreaks havoc at a drive-in movie theater.
