Chris Pratt Says ‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Ends Franchise After 30 Years Film-News.co.uk
Chris Pratt has revealed that the “Jurassic Park” franchise is officially ending after the release of the last film.
The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ star reprises his role as dinosaur trainer Owen Grady in his third film, ‘Jurassic World Dominion,’ which premieres this summer.
It’s the sixth film in the “Jurassic Park” franchise that spans more than 30 years since Steven Spielberg’s groundbreaking original was released in 1990.
Now Chris has insisted that after six movies the curtain is finally falling on genetically modified dinosaurs, telling US show ‘Today’: “‘It’s been 30 years of filming. It is the sixth Jurassic film and the end of the franchise.”
The new film features the three main characters from the original film, played by Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum, reunited for the first time.
The legacy characters will appear alongside the cast of the “Jurassic World” movies, which includes Chris and Bryce Dallas Howard in what’s billed as an epic conclusion.
While appearing on ‘Today’, Chris explained what it was like to work with the original ‘Jurassic Park’ stars, saying: “You’ve got the legacy cast coming back, Sam Neill, Laura Dern , Jeff Goldblum, plus the cast of “Jurassic World” Our storylines converge in a way that is truly a finale…
“I had no idea I was ever going to be an actor…and these people were, like, ingrained in my mind like icons. Working with them is a dream come true.”
“Jurassic Park” was based on Michael Crichton’s book of the same name and spawned two sequels, “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” starring Jeff Goldblum and “Jurassic Park III” starring Sam Neill.
The franchise was revived in 2015 with the release of “Jurassic World”, followed by “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” in 2018.
“Jurassic World Dominion” comes out in June.
