“Dominion is the culmination of the franchise. It concludes a story that Steven Spielberg started telling in 1993.” Universal has released a new “Legacy” making of featurette for Jurassic World Dominion, set to hit theaters worldwide in June. There’s also a new poster (below) to go along with some new shots, though it’s mostly the same footage from the previous epic trailer. Dominion takes place four years after Isla Nublar was destroyed. Dinosaurs now live—and hunt—alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and will determine, once and for all, whether human beings will remain apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures. This movie stars Mamoudou Athie, Scott Haze, Daniella Pineda, Omar Sy, Justice Smith, DeWanda Wise, Isabella Sermon, Dichen Lachman, Campbell Scott, and BD Wong. Plus the original JP cast: Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum. The hints in this video make me wonder if they’re going to wipe out all the dinos again, or let them stay as “wild animals”. How else can they wrap up Spielberg’s beginning without asking this question?
Here’s the “Legacy” featurette (+ poster) for Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World: Dominion, on YouTube:
