'Jurassic World: Dominion' Theory: Setting Up Future Films May Be Bad Idea
Jurassic World: Dominion” is supposed to mark the end of the new trilogy. However, the producers are planning to use the film to setup the story for future movies. According to a new theory, this strategy is a bad idea for the franchise.
The upcoming film will bring back veteran characters like Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum). This gives the movie a chance to end the new trilogy with lead characters Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) while at the same time give the fans an ending that they didn’t get in the “Jurassic Park” movies. “Jurassic Park 3” only had Neill and Dern had a small role.
In a previous interview with Collider, producer Frank Marshall teased that the upcoming film will be the “start of a new era.” The plot of the film will be about dinosaurs running around in the mainland in all the countries around the world, and Marshall said that the movie is not being planned as an ending for the trilogy.
The dinosaurs in “Jurassic World: Dominion” are out in the mainland, and Marshall teased that the creatures will continue to terrorise humans for “quite some time.” According to Screen Rant, using the upcoming film to setup future stories is a bad idea.
Originally, “Jurassic Park” was never meant to be a franchise. Steven Speilberg thought about making a sequel while he was filming the first movie, and the massive success of his movie forced Michael Crichton to write the sequel novel “The Lost World,” which was made into a film.
As far as the new trilogy is concerned, “The Fallen Kingdom” ended the story with the destruction of the island. The upcoming film should end the story that began with the new park and it should also give the fans a payoff with the personal journeys of characters like the relationship between Owen and Claire. However, the financial incentive to continue the franchise may force the producers to setup future storylines in the movie and not just focus on a good ending.
According to Screen Rant, “Jurassic World: Dominion” is promising to be a good movie because it is not only bringing in veteran characters to have the nostalgia, but it is also balancing that with the new story and the journeys of the new characters. The movie is expected to get the fans excited about the franchise again.
