Get ready to travel back to the land of thunderous roars and earth-shaking footsteps, because the ‘Jurassic Park’ saga – a cinematic adventure that’s been thrilling fans for an astonishing 30 years since its groundbreaking debut in 1993 – is set to unleash its latest installment. That’s right, 2023 marks the 30th anniversary of this iconic film franchise, and the excitement is palpable!
In a surprising twist that’s set the fanbase abuzz with curiosity, the upcoming seventh film in this prehistoric series will venture into new territory without the familiar faces we’ve grown to adore. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, who headlined the recent trilogy that wrapped up with ‘Jurassic World Dominion,’ will not be part of the upcoming project. What could this mean for the future of the franchise?
The air is thick with anticipation as the new film – yet untitled – officially begins its production journey. Without the return of the previous stars, whispers and speculation point to a reboot or a fresh start with an entirely new storyline. Sources like SFF Gazette are hinting at intriguing possibilities.
Rumors are swirling about who will helm the script for this exciting new chapter. David Koepp’s name is at the forefront of the conversation, bringing with him a legitimate ‘Jurassic Park’ legacy, having been instrumental in the original film and its sequel, ‘Jurassic Park: The Lost World.’ Fans can hardly wait as the proposed release date looms on the horizon: 2025.
Though details about the plot are shrouded in mystery, phrases like “a new Jurassic era” have set imaginations running wild. What we do know is that it will likely retire the legends of the screen – Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum – who were the bedrock of the initial trilogy.
Yet the question of who will take the director’s chair remains unanswered. Colin Trevorrow, who orchestrated ‘Jurassic World Dominion,’ might just find himself navigating the dinosaurs once more. One certainty in this sea of unknowns is the involvement of producer Frank Marshall, a familiar guardian of the ‘Jurassic’ lineage. And beneath it all is the steadfast vision of Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, the cornerstone of the franchise’s cinematic magic.
But wait, there’s more good news for the die-hard ‘Jurassic’ enthusiasts! In sync with the new film, a fresh video game titled ‘Jurassic Park Survival’ is also on the horizon. Crafted by the skilled hands at Saber Interactive – a team known for their exceptional ability to port games – this game marks a departure from past projects as they build something from the ground up. Revealed at the latest The Game Awards gala, ‘Jurassic Park Survival’ promises an experience reminiscent of the tense atmospheres found in games like ‘Alien Isolation.’ Although its release date remains as enigmatic as the depths of the Isla Nublar jungle, the game will transport players to the timeline of the original films, adding another layer to the rich ‘Jurassic’ lore.
The ‘Jurassic Park’ universe is expanding with no signs of slowing down. Be it on the big screen or through the immersive realms of video gaming, the saga continues to evolve, capturing the hearts of new generations and reaffirming its place as a timeless classic in the world of entertainment. As we look towards 2025 with eager eyes, one thing remains certain: the adventure is just beginning, and the dinosaurs are far from extinct.
