Jurassic World: Dominion Has Wrapped Filming

Who knows how long it will be before anyone gets to see it, but Jurassic World: Dominion is now in the can. Following a COVID-19 pause, the production became one of the first to institute strict safety protocols. According to Deadline, which reported the end of production, virus-proofing the set cost between $6-8 million.

While many other productions resorted to virtual sets and additional CG, Dominion apparently went as intended. Director Colin Trevorrow maintained his dream of mostly practical dinosaurs, and location shoots in Malta. Although the director notes that quarantine kept all the actors close and allowed for more rehearsal. “I think that close proximity to each other has made the movie better,” he told Deadline. “Everything we were going through emotionally we would share. We would rehearse on Sundays, we crafted the characters, which made the emotion of the film richer. I think the movie will be stronger for it.”

He adds that the movie “is about the need to co-exist and survive together,” and therefore fitting for the pandemic era. Naturally, that implies the dinosaurs will likely still be around at the end of this installment.

Jurassic World: Dominion reunites original cast members Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum. They’ll get to interact with current franchise stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Barring any further delays, Universal plans to release the movie in the summer of 2022.
