If you're a fan of Spielberg's 1993 classic Jurassic Park, brace yourself: Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Sam Neill are returning to the franchise as Ellie, Ian, and Grant for Jurassic World 3. The release is currently set for 2021.
The iconic trio has not been together since the original, yet each have made appearances in later franchise films. Dern and Neill reprised their roles in Jurassic Park III (2001) while Goldblum was back twice in The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997) and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018).
The announcement came last night from director Colin Trevorrow at a Jurassic World screening hosted by Collider, where Dern surprised screaming fans post-announcement. The reports were later confirmed on Dern's and Jurassic World's social media accounts.
