Jurassic World 3 Director Teases Lost World Connection With New Set Photo

A new set photo for Jurassic World: Dominion released by director Colin Trevorrow teases a connection to The Lost World and Jurassic Park 3.

A new set photo from Jurassic World: Dominion teases a connection to The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park 3. After more than a decade had passed since the end of Steven Speilberg's original trilogy, Universal relaunched the Jurassic franchise in 2015. The new trilogy put Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the lead roles and showed the opening of Jurassic World. The sequel trilogy has continued to build off ideas the original Jurassic Park films dealt with, and Jurassic World 3 will now act as a bit of a culminating chapter.

The third film in the sequel trilogy will once again be directed by Colin Trevorrow, who directed Jurassic World but stepped aside on the sequel. One of the biggest selling points for Jurassic World: Dominion early on is the return of the original trilogy cast members. Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum are all returning for significant roles in the new movie. Several other connections to the previous films have been teased already, and now another one has been revealed.

Colin Trevorrow shared a set photo from Jurassic World: Dominion exclusively with Jurassic Outpost and it includes a reference to a familiar location. The image shows a cold storage container inside a lab, and the container has "Site B Isla Sorna" labeled on it. Isla Sorna was first seen in The Lost World and was later revisited during Jurassic Park 3.

The image shows a lab and a cold storage container labeled with “InGen” and “Site B Isla Sorna” on the front.

Isla Sorna is InGen's second and secret location where they originally cloned the dinosaurs before transporting them to Isla Nublar. Ian Malcolm originally was sent there to document the dinosaur life on the island so Isla Sorna could become a natural preserve for the remaining dinosaurs, but there was a separate plan to transport them to a new location in San Diego (which didn't go well). Alan Grant then went to Isla Nublar to help rescue a child and discovered that cloning continued on the island in secret despite it being illegal for InGen to do so. These practices eventually led to Jurassic World opening, but Isla Sorna was then abandoned and hasn't been featured in the last two films.

The appearance of this crate doesn't guarantee that Jurassic World: Dominion will re-explore Isla Sorna, but it is possible. Instead, the more likely implication is that InGen's embryos used for cloning are within this container. While InGen could still have this container in its possession, it has also been revealed that Biosyn will make a return through Lewis Dodgson. The Jurassic World movies have so far told a story revolving around multiple dinosaur-related experiments, so Jurassic World 3 could continue that trend with whatever is inside this container.
