There could be a big reunion in “Jurassic World 3.” After bringing back Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) in the sequel, the director of the third film hinted that the character may be back with a few others from the original movie.

Colin Trevorrow will be back at the helm in the next movie. He was the director of the first movie and wrote the initial script of the sequel. According to a report by Syfy, the director teased details about the possible cameo appearances in the final film.

Dr. Henry Wu (BD Wong) was in the first movie, then Goldblum was added in the sequel. Trevorrow explained that his approach was to introduce these characters from the original film slowly, to make sure the fans will keep coming back to watch more of these movies. The alternative was to bring everyone together in the first movie and then start slowly killing them off one by one in each subsequent movie.

Trevorrow is a big fan of the franchise, and he said that he has been fighting the urge to just bring all the main characters from the 1993 film for a big reunion. He explained that he hasn’t done that because the introduction of these legacy characters has to make sense for the story they are telling, and these characters shouldn’t be seen doing things that feel artificial, just to satisfy the director’s need to include them into the movie somehow.

So, there may be more additions in the next film, but Trevorrow did not elaborate on who they plan to bring back. Laura Dern (Ellie) has already said that she is willing to reprise her role, but it remains to be seen if Sam Neill (Grant) is ready to come back to the franchise as well.

“Jurassic World 3” is still in very early stages of development. The movie is set to be released on June 11, 2021 in the US.
