Chris Pratt has recently revealed that the dino DNA line has come to an end with Jurassic World Dominion. In a recent interview with Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb on Thursday’s episode of the Today show, the actor described filming one of the craziest action sequences he has ever been a part of for the upcoming sequel, which will be the third flick in the Jurassic World trilogy and the sixth Jurassic movie overall.
Pratt also compared the film to seeing a fireworks finale, “Thirty years in the making, this is the sixth Jurassic film, and it’s the end of this franchise.” The actor revealed that “it’s the end. “You got the legacy cast back, Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, plus the cast of Jurassic World, all our storylines converging in a way that is very much a finale.”
Pratt added that it was “actually insane” to work closely with Neill, Dern, and Goldblum on the movie after the trio last appeared together in the original Jurassic Park movie that kicked off the franchise back in 1993. “The first time I saw Jurassic Park, I was 13. I had no idea I was gonna ever be an actor and these folks were, like, cemented in my mind as icons,” Pratt said. “So to be working with them, it’s a dream come true.”
Dominion picks up with Owen Grady (Pratt) and Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) after the events of 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, giving the heroes a new challenge: to save the lovable raptor Blue’s baby. “I made a promise we would bring her home,” says Owen in a recently released trailer, to which Goldblum’s Dr Ian Malcolm responds, “You made a promise to a dinosaur.” The upcoming movie is scheduled to release in theatres on June 10.
