'Jurassic World 3' Release Date Officially Announced

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Universal Pictures

'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom' isn't premiering until this summer, but Universal already has plans to turn the dinosaur reboot into a trilogy.

Jurassic World 3 is happening.

Universal announced Wednesday that the follow-up to this year's upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is in the works, with a planned release date of Jun. 11, 2021.

While that may feel like it's as far away as the prehistoric era, at least we can still look forward to its predecessor, which premieres on Jun. 22 of this year.

Steven Spielberg and Colin Trevorrow are back to executive produce the movie, and Emily Carmichael (Pacific Rim Uprising) will co-write the screenplay with Trevorrow.

Back in December, ET talked to Laura Dern, who hinted at a possible cameo in Fallen Kingdom. 

"[It] could be fun," she teased, hearkening back to the iconic character she played in the original movies. "I mean, I love Ellie Sattler."
