Jurassic World: Dominion Director Says Fans ‘Underestimate’ Size of Original Cast’s Roles


Said Trevorrow, “Every day, this is the movie I’ve been waiting to make from the beginning. I think it’s the one that we’ve spent the past two movies building to. It really was part of a larger story, part of a design.”

While the first movie scratched the itch of imagining what a fully functional Jurassic Park would look like, complete with tourists who are having fun before they become dino-chow, the sequels, particularly the one that Trevorrow is currently filming, are about realizing Michael Crichton’s original fear from the source novel: Genetic science running amok and humans creating a dino-Frankenstein’s Monster that will cause an extinction level event. It’s a big story, and one that allowed room to finally see Neill again as Dr. Alan Grant and Dern as Dr. Ellie Sattler.

As Trevorrow hinted during our discussion, there appears to be a possibility of seeing more of the Camp Cretaceous

characters in live-action movies down the road.

When asked about the possibility of seeing the characters or events of the Netflix series influencing movies down the road, the director said, “We have built a real foundation here [with the animated series] that if the audience chooses to let us go forward, we really can weave this this quilt together in a way that is really new and really exciting, and pretty unexpected.
