Looks Like Jurassic World 3 Is Beginning Filming Soon
Following the release of Colin Trevorrow’s Battle at Big Rock short film, many of us are extra excited to see what the director has in store for audiences with Jurassic World 3. We have a long time to wait though because the sequel to last year’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and the third film in the Jurassic World franchise isn’t set to arrive in theaters until 2021. It’s on the way though and it looks like Jurassic World 3 is actually beginning filming soon.
According to HN Entertainment, Jurassic World 3 is expected to shoot at the legendary Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, England. This would be a return for the franchise, as Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom also shot scenes at Pinewood Studios UK, as have other entries in massive franchises, including Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, No Time to Die and Eternals.
This report is unconfirmed as of yet and should be taken with a grain of salt until we hear more. But if accurate, this could be a sign that the pieces are being put in place to go before cameras. With the production locking in its filming locations, it seems that Jurassic World 3 could be ramping up its pre-production process so that it can begin filming in the near future.
Jurassic World 3 settled on a release date before Fallen Kingdom had even hit theaters and all signs are looking good that it will actually hit that release date. And after the events of Fallen Kingdom and the taste we got of things to come in Battle at Big Rock, there is a lot to look forward to in Jurassic World 3.
With the dinosaurs being released on the mainland at the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, this threequel could have an entirely new dynamic than what we’ve seen before from this franchise. Director and co-writer Colin Trevorrow has promised Jurassic World 3 thankfully won’t have dinosaurs attacking cities and that it will be a celebration of the entire franchise.
To that end, there is a hope shared by many fans and vocally championed by actress Bryce Dallas Howard, that Jurassic World 3 see the return of the actors from the original Jurassic Park. Jeff Goldblum appeared briefly as Dr. Ian Malcolm in Fallen Kingdom, but as of yet we haven’t seen Laura Dern’s Ellie Sattler or Sam Neill’s Alan Grant.
We don’t know if the original trio will be returning for Jurassic World 3 yet, but with all the talk surrounding the possibility, it certainly seems likely. With Jurassic World 3 potentially shooting soon, hopefully we’ll begin to hear more about the story and perhaps some casting news as well.
Jurassic World 3 is directed by Colin Trevorrow and written by Trevorrow and Pacific Rim Uprising’s Emily Carmichael. Jurassic World 3 opens in theaters on June 11, 2021.
