Jurassic Park fans worldwide are roaring with excitement at the release of the trailer for the last movie in the Jurassic World Trilogy. Bringing all the nostalgic vibes we could ask for, the latest movie reunites the cast of the original Jurassic Park (1993) alongside the modern-day cast of the Jurassic World franchise (2015). As we saw in Spiderman: No Way Home (spoiler alert!), on-screen franchise reunions like this provide the ultimate cinematic moment. Here's what you can expect...

"This summer, experience the epic conclusion of the Jurassic era" teased the trailer released on February 10 (see below). And boy, does it look to deliver. Die-hard fans of the franchise are sure to have all the feels at the sight of Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jef Goldblum taking back their original roles on the big screen, alongside the lovable modern-day Jurassic World dinosaur heroes Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Talking to Empire Magazine, director Trevorrow recalls sending Steven Spielberg, the big-time director of the original movie, a photograph of the reunion. "He got very emotional. I don't think even he was prepared for how moving it would be," Treverrow explained. Forget the popcorn - make sure you have your Kleenex ready, folks!

Alongside the trailer, an official synopsis of the movie was released, teasing fans that this movie picks up four years after the ending of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018). "From Jurassic World architect and director Colin Trevorrow, Dominion takes place four years after Isla Nublar has been destroyed. Dinosaurs now live—and hunt—alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history's most fearsome creatures".

Coming to the big screen on June 10, the pressure is on for director Trevorrow to re-create his iconic record-breaking $1.7 billion global box office achieved by the release of Jurassic World in 2015. With the promise of "never-seen dinosaurs, breakneck action, and astonishing new visual effects," we'll be stomping into the movie theaters as soon as those Jurassic Park gates open! Until then, stay tuned.
