If you’re like me, a dinosaur geek and massive fan of the franchise, you were thrilled to hear the news that another installment of the Jurassic Park/Jurassic World franchise is on its way when we first reported it back in January. Well, we have an update.

The new movie, whose title has yet to be announced, has officially found its new director: Gareth Edwards, known for his Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. This marks a significant turn for the franchise, bringing in a visionary director known for his bold storytelling and immersive filmmaking.

According to Deadline, Edwards impressed producers Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall with his vision for the new chapter. After weeks of speculation, Edwards spent last week meeting with executives, solidifying his position as the frontrunner. Now, with him “in final negotiations” with Universal, pre-production is expected to ramp up quickly.

Excitement is brewing amongst fans as details about the film emerge for the 2025 Jurassic sequel. The sequel sees David Koepp, the original writer for Jurassic Park and The Lost World, return to pen the script. The new installment promises a fresh start. It will reportedly mark the beginning of a “new Jurassic era.” This suggests a possible departure from familiar faces like Owen Grady and Claire Dearing, paving the way for a new cast and narrative.

However, the core themes of dinosaurs, scientific advancements, and the ethical dilemmas they present remain central. Fans can expect a thrilling adventure. As always, the film will be filled with awe-inspiring visuals and heart-pounding action sequences, all delivered through Edwards’ unique directorial lens.

Mark your calendars! The new Jurassic movie roars into theaters on Wednesday, July 2, 2025. Get ready for a thrilling ride into uncharted territory, where the future of dinosaurs and humanity hangs in the balance.
