The end of 2018's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom saw the dinosaurs that had been shipped to the United States free and roaming the wilderness. Chris Pratt, who stars in the series, has now explained that Jurassic World 3 will feature a significant time jump so as to examine the consequences of that twist.
In an interview with MTV News, Pratt revealed that he knows what will happen in the upcoming sequel. "When I heard the pitch, I was blown away," he said. "I can't believe they found a way to deliver on the promise of the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom... The island is blown up. The animals are out. We can't put 'em back in the box. What are we gonna do? How is -- not only these dinosaurs, but this technology moving forward -- going to affect the planet? And we jump forward, it's like, 'oh! oh right! Oh damn!'"
Although exactly how much time will pass remains unclear, the actor's answers indicate that the film will take audiences into the middle of humanity's attempt to deal with issue of dinosaurs. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was set three years after the events of Jurassic World, which is also the real time between the movies. It's entirely possible that Jurassic World 3's time jump will be similar and based off the film's release date.
Pratt also reiterated that director Colin Trevorrow is intending to bring everything "full circle" with this third film in the Jurassic World series. Otherwise. Pratt didn't divulge many other details. In December, Trevorrow also claimed that dinosaurs will not terrorize cities in the third film, so we know that, at least.
