Filming has officially begun on the sixth Jurassic Park film and the third film in the Jurassic World series – and we finally have the title!
Get ready for JURASSIC WORLD: DOMINION. The title was unveiled by director Colin Trevorrow, who shared a snap from the set to mark the first day of principal photography. Captioned “Day One,” the pic was of a slate and featured the film’s full title…

It’s a strong title, and one that matches up where we left off at the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The dinosaurs are out now, roaming the earth at large. Are humans still the dominant force?
Chris Pratt shared the same pic, although his caption came with a dictionary definition of the word dominion:
1. sovereignty or control.
“man’s attempt to establish dominion over nature”
Oh, and if you didn’t catch the official short film follow-up to Fallen Kingdom, do so HERE.
Trevorrow returns at the helm after directing 2015’s Jurassic World (The Orphanage and The Impossible‘s J.A. Bayona directed Fallen Kingdom). He’s also behind the screenplay, co-writing with Pacific Rim: Uprising scribe Emily Carmichael.
In terms of the cast, everyone is going to be here. Not only are Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard back in the lead roles, supporting players Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda and BD Wong also return. But perhaps most excitingly, original Jurassic Park trio Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum are on board as well! Yes, Goldblum had a tiny part in Fallen Kingdom, even if he was in the freakin’ trailer and made to appear that he would have much more of a role. The cast also includes Dichen Lachman (Altered Carbon) and Scott Haze (Venom).
Jurassic World: Dominion arrives in Australia on June 10 and opens in the U.S. on June 11, 2021.
