Jurassic World 3 Is Officially Done, Confirms Director
Jurassic World: Dominion has been edited, mixed, and finally completed after a lengthy production process, according to director Colin Trevorrow.
Colin Trevorrow confirms Jurassic World: Dominion has finally been completed after a lengthy production process. The third and likely final installment of the Jurassic World franchise was originally scheduled to open in theaters this year, but the coronavirus pandemic had different plans for it. Jurassic World 3 began filming in early 2020 but was soon shut down by the pandemic. After various starts and stops throughout the year, the "nigh-impossible" shoot, in the words of star Sam Neill, wrapped in late 2020. Jurassic World 3 is currently scheduled to premiere in June 2022.
Plot specifics are still being kept under wraps, but fans have been able to glean a few things based on a special IMAX teaser that was released this past summer. Dominion is expected to pick up years after 2018's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which ended with numerous dinosaurs running wild in the human world. Jurassic World 3 will likely find its heroes, led once again by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, facing the increased threat of dinosaurs. This time, though, they will be joined by the core trio from Jurassic Park: Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum.
Trevorrow has kept fans updated on Jurassic World 3's progress from the very start of production, and now he's informed everyone that the movie is officially complete. The director took to social media over the weekend and revealed, "Last night we put the last bit of reverb on the last roar." Trevorrow thanked the team at Skywalker Sound for helping with the movie's mix and concluded his message with a chill-inducing statement: "It is alive."

This moment has been a long time coming for Trevorrow and his Jurassic World 3 team, as this has clearly been a production that was more difficult than most. Though the movie remains over half a year away from release, it must be a relief to bring Jurassic World: Dominion to a close. Assuming Trevorrow doesn't wish to make any additional tweaks in the coming months, the movie is ready for 2022's release and hopefully won't be moved from its current date.
More promotional materials for Jurassic World 3 likely won't begin rolling out until further into 2022. There are several major movies on the release calendar before Dominion, and that includes those still on the docket for this year. Nevertheless, now that the final cut has been completed, Trevorrow might share some teases to help tide fans over. Jurassic World: Dominion is eagerly anticipated both because of its new dinosaur hook and the returns of the Jurassic Park cast, and the sooner more is revealed about it, the better. Stay tuned for additional updates in the future.
