Jurassic World: Dominion Director On Balancing Legacy Characters Like Jeff Goldblum With The New Leads

The Jurassic Park franchise changed the film world forever, and the generations of fans were delighted when dinosaurs returned to the big screen with the Jurassic World trilogy. Director Colin Trevorrow is back in the director’s chair for Dominion, and recently spoke about balancing legacy characters like Jeff Goldblum with the new leads.

Moviegoers were thrilled to learn that the original trio of Jurassic actors would be returning for Dominion: Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neill, and Laura Dern. But the previous two movies were largely focused on newcomers like Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard’s Owen and Claire. Colin Trevorrow recently debuted the prologue for the new threequel, and spoke to the challenge of balancing the ensemble of Dominion. In his words,

Ellie and Grant and Malcolm are on this full adventure, they’re a huge part of it, and equal partners to Owen and Claire and Maisie and our new characters we’ve brought in. The challenge of a movie like that is to give every character their due, to honor everybody. That’s part of what this prologue is about; I felt that if we didn’t have this in the story, that the T-Rex wasn’t being honored. She’s a character too.
