In an interview with Variety, the actor said: “ It’s going to be a big film. [Director] Colin Trevorrow has that childlike sense of wonder, playfulness, and inventiveness that [Steven] Spielberg has. We really shot a six-hour movie. We were all very gung-ho.”
In November 2020, director Colin Trevorrow took to Twitter to announce the news of filming completion. He wrote: “Wrap on Jurassic World Dominion. All my gratitude to my extraordinary crew and cast. We made a family.” In an interview with Deadline Colin said: “It has been remarkable. Our cast and crew have been so resilient.

Director Colin Trevorrow shared that he bringing back the old cast of Jurassic Park. However, the cast of Jurassic World will remain the same in the upcoming movie. Sam Neil, Laura Dern, Jeff Blum will reprise their Jurassic Park role of Dr. Alan Grant, Dr.Ellie Sattler, and Dr. Ian Malcolm. Chris Pratt (Owen Grady), Bryce Dallas Howard (Claire Dearing), Isabella Sermon (Maisi Lockwood), Justice Smith (Franklin Webb), Daniella Pineda (Zia Rodriguez), Omar Sy (Barry Sembene), BD Wong (Henry Wu), and more.
Colin Trevorrow shared his opinion on this casting: “We’d brought back Dr.Henry Wu first because he was the man behind the science and the only one who made sense. Otherwise, we’d have to had to come up with a reason why Ellie, Malcolm, and Grant all went to the theme park on the exact same day it broke down again.” He also added: “But the next film follows the legacy characters to be a part of the story in an organic way.”
