Jurassic World 3 is starting up production, meaning we’re about a year and a half away from the conclusion of the new trilogy of dino-laden films. For better or worse, the franchise continuation has been a juggernaut for Universal and has justified the existence of the sequel series. Though we still have a while until we can expect anything very definitive from the movie, director Colin Trevorrow has taken to Twitter to tease day one of their production.
In the photo shown off by the filmmaker, we not only got the slate for the film, but on it is a title reveal. If we’re to believe the slate, Jurassic World 3 will now be known as Jurassic World: Dominion. Take a look at the actual photo down below.

First off, it looks like that logo they’re using resembles the original Jurassic Park logo more than the Jurassic World one. That being said, I don’t really think that is indicative of much, since there is plenty of time for them to create new assets in the future. Let’s get to the meat of the issue here. What can we infer from the new title?
Well, at the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, a whole batch of dinos escaped into the world. This would seem to imply that, for better or worse, dinosaurs would be reintegrated into the world, and we’d just have to get used to this new reality of life. Of course, it doesn’t make a lot of sense, given that they could probably just hunt them down, but it’s a cool implication, nonetheless.
Dominion seems to imply control of a region. Does it have to do with the dinosaurs’ own dominion of the land they inhabit, the land humans inhabit, or even a clash between the two races for control? The last one does seem to be the most likely contender, but I have a hard time believing humanity would actually have a hard time taking control if they really wanted to. So, what will the overall conflict of the movie be? Can we expect it to have to do with overall control that will ultimately end with the dinosaurs being plunked back onto another island?
I hope they plan on taking more risks than that, but I guess that’s part of what makes this new movie so exciting. I have no idea where it’s really going to head. Plus, from everything Chris Pratt has said, we can expect this to be quite the epic chapter in the franchise that will bring back every other actor from the main franchise.

“I’m not allowed to say anything… It’s got everybody,” Chris Pratt told Ellen Degeneres last week. “It’s got pretty much everybody in it. Maybe I just blew it, but I don’t care. All the cast from the original Jurassic Park is coming back. It’s going to feel very much like how Endgame brought everything together for Marvel.”
“I leave tomorrow and I’ll be shooting for a long time. The script is unbelievable,” Pratt continued. “Colin Trevorrow, who wrote and directed Jurassic World is coming back to do this one. I can’t wait… I will shoot on and off until July. It’s a big one. It’s about close to 100 shoot days. It’s a massive movie. It’s a big movie. We’ll be all over the world. The story is really, really engaging. Really cool. It’s gonna be big.”
If nothing else, it’ll be a lot of fan service. Here’s hoping they close things out better than Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
