Reunions, uh, find a way. It looks like the original cast of Jurassic Park will be signing on for Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World 3. Heading back to 1993, Steven Spielberg kick-started the sci-fi franchise.
While Jeff Goldblum had a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in last year’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, it sounds like Laura Dern and Sam Neill will be reprising their roles as Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler.
The plot of the untitled Jurassic World 3 is currently being kept under wraps, but seeing the original trilogy of stars would be a huge coup for the movie. Goldblum led The Lost World: Jurassic Park, Neill and Dern were last seen in Jurassic Park III.
Speaking to MTV on the Rocketman red carpet, the 38-year-old teased a galaxy of stars for the movie. Asked whether she was looking forward to sharing scenes with the original characters, Howard said, “Yes, very much so. If that happens, I don’t know.”
She continued, “I don’t know what’s been confirmed or whatever, but I’ll blink if it’s happening and maybe…”, before rapidly blinking. Yes, I know it isn’t an official confirmation, but it’s as close as we’re getting for now.
If you want to relive he wonder of the original trilogy, Netflix has finally added the first three movies to Netflix.
While some people refuse to acknowledge anything past the first movie, there’s a loyal fanbase that love the original trilogy. Hold onto your butts because Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and Jurassic Park III are all able to stream right now.
Unfortunately, there’s no sign of 2015’s Jurassic World or the recent Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, but you can’t win them all. Looking at the original trilogy, there are too many standout moments to count.
From raptor kitchens to tumbling trailers, giant bird cages to “You didn’t say the magic word”, the original trilogy has it all. Also, who could ever resist the glistening chest of Goldblum?
Considering Netflix is known for hosting some of the best movies out there, it’s amazing to think Universal’s original Jurassic Park trilogy isn’t already on there.
This latest news comes after speculation Netflix is working on a secret Jurassic project. According to fan site Jurassic Outpost, a potential Netflix listing points toward something called Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous.
The mysterious title was alongside the various Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies on the streaming service. Although the listing has vanished as quick as it appeared, it ties into a Universal trademark for “Camp Cretaceous” that was registered in December 2018.
It’s important to note that LEGO Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape is already on Netflix, meaning this could be just another LEGO outing for the long-running legacy of Jurassic Park.
