Jurassic World: Domain: Universal today (23) released a teaser for Jurassic World: Dominion, which shows dinosaurs living on Earth for 65 million years. The preview, which does not contain material from the film, also shows a modern-day Tyrannosaurus fleeing a helicopter.
The video was created by Industrial Light & Magic and shown in theaters before The Fast & The Furious 9. For the film’s director, Colin Trevorrow, it was the opportunity to connect all the features into a single video.
“Since I was a child, I’ve always wanted to see dinosaurs in their natural habitat,” he explained. “It may have taken a few decades, but with a little help from ILM, Universal and Amblin, it finally happened. This preview is just a glimpse of the movie we made. It’s an epic celebration of everything Steven Spielberg and Michael Crichton have created and I can’t wait to share it with the world next summer.”
Trevorrow had also talked about how this new trilogy has more connected stories, unlike the first three.
“For me, [Dominion] is the culmination of a story that has been told,” explained the filmmaker in January. “When you got to the end of the Jurassic Park trilogy, it might not have been so clear what the full story of these three films was, because they were a little more episodic in the way they were approached. But this trilogy is not like that. It’s a serial story. What was important to me is that when someone watches Domain, they’re going to really feel like they’re learning how much of a story the first set of movies was and how everything that happened in those movies actually informs what might happen in this third one. If children born today are introduced to six Jurassic Park movies — you hope their parents will buy them the box — you hope they feel like watching a long story.”
The film features the return of Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, who starred in the first three feature films in the Jurassic Park franchise. They are joined by Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Daniella Pineda, who have been in recent films.
Jurassic World: Domain hits theaters on June 10, 2022.
