Move over dinosaurs of the past; a new era is stomping into theaters! While details are still emerging, here’s what we know about the upcoming Jurassic World installment.

A New Dawn for Jurassic World

Scheduled for a July 2nd, 2025 release, Jurassic World, currently described as an “All-New Jurassic Event Film,” will mark a fresh start for the franchise. This film won’t directly follow the events of Jurassic World: Dominion but instead launch a new narrative thread.

Familiar Territory, New Storyteller

Jurassic Park veteran David Koepp, who penned the original Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park: Lost World, is back on board, this time as a screenwriter. However, behind the camera, Gareth Edwards (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Godzilla) will be steering the ship, taking over directing duties from David Leitch.

Filming on the Horizon

Production is expected to begin this summer at NBCUniversal’s Sky Studios Elstree in the UK, with additional international locations likely in the mix. While filming delays are always possible, 2025’s release date seems to be on track.

New Blood Joins the Jurassic Hunt

While casting remains unconfirmed, reports suggest that Scarlett Johansson and “Bridgerton” star Jonathan Bailey are in talks to lead the upcoming film. Details about their characters are still under wraps.

The OG Crew Bows Out (For Now)

Fans of Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and the legacy cast (Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum) shouldn’t expect to see them in this new chapter. Neill has hinted at his absence, and Howard has expressed a willingness to return in the future, but likely not for this immediate installment.

A Franchise Ready to Evolve

With a fresh story, a great director, and potentially A-list leads, the movie is poised to take audiences on a thrilling new adventure. While some franchise favorites may be sitting this one out, the return of David Koepp and the addition of filmmaking talent like Gareth Edwards hint at an exciting new direction for the Jurassic saga. Get ready and revisit Isla Nublar (or perhaps a new location) when the dinosaurs return in 2025!
