Filming on Jurassic World: Dominion, the third movie in the Jurassic World brand of the Jurassic Park franchise, has ended. It was a long, obstacle-filled journey for the Universal feature, with a shoot spanning nine months and navigating the COVID-19 pandemic with a variety of on-set measures to keep the cast and crew safe. The Jurassic World: Dominion filming schedule was also hit by two brief hiatuses, the first at the outbreak of the pandemic and the second happening just one month ago when a few people on set tested positive. In light of this long journey, it’s a triumph to say that Jurassic World: Dominion is finally in the can.
This achievement was not lost on Colin Trevorrow. The Dominion director marked the end of filming by sharing a photo from the set on Twitter on Saturday morning featuring Jurassic Park alum Sam Neill and franchise newcomers DeWanda Wise and Mamoudou Athie. Trevorrow also shared some reflections with Deadline the day before, on Friday, following the official end of filming. According to the outlet, Trevorrow reflected that “there are a lot of emotions,” and went on to say, “I’m not sure I can put it into words. It has been remarkable. Our crew and our cast have been so resilient. All producers have worked around the clock to make it the best it can be. It has been inspiring.”
Jurassic World: Dominion is scheduled to arrive in theaters on June 10, 2022. Check out Colin Trevorrow’s new photo from the set below. For more, read our in-depth interview with Jurassic World newcomer Mamoudou Athie and check out our 2021 movie release calendar.
