Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern, and Sam Neill Are Returning to Jurassic Park

The original Jurassic Park seemed impossible to follow when it hit theaters in 1993, but to paraphrase Ian Malcolm, franchises find a way. The movie inspired four sequels, with each one introducing new dinosaurs and new characters for them to terrorize. For the next installment, the series is going back to its roots. As Entertainment Weekly reports, stars Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and Laura Dern are joining Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard for Jurassic World 3.

When many fans think of Jurassic Park, they picture Alan Grant, Ian Malcolm, and Ellie Sattler. But the three main characters from the first movie have had an inconsistent presence in the sequels: Goldblum returned as Malcolm for the The Lost World and had a brief cameo in Fallen Kingdom, while Neill and Dern reprised their respective roles as Grant and Sattler only in Jurassic Park III.

Jurassic World 3 will mark the first time since the 1993 film that the three original stars appear together on screen. They will act alongside Pratt and Howard—the stars of the current phase of the franchise.

Colin Trevorrow, the director of Jurassic World and the upcoming Jurassic World 3, announced the news at a screening of Jurassic World in Los Angeles on September 24. How large a role the three characters will play is still unclear. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ends with escaped dinosaurs running free on the mainland, and Trevorrow hinted that the new film could pick up where that one left off.

Jurassic World 3 is set to premiere on June 11, 2021. If you plan on rewatching the original movie to satisfy your dino craving in the meantime, here are some things to look for.
