‘Jurassic World Dominion’ extended edition has more legacy cast scenes

‘Jurassic World Dominion’ director, Colin Trevorrow, recently shared that the extended edition of the film will have more scenes of the Jurassic Park cast. The action-adventure film is sixth and the final film in the long-running franchise that began with Jurassic Park in 1993. Dominion proved to be a box office success, garnering over $975 million worldwide, making it the second-highest grossing film of the year behind Top Gun: Maverick.

Set four years after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Dominion finds Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) and former raptor wrangler Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) traveling across the world to find Maisie Lockwood (Isabella Sermon) who had been kidnaped by agents of Biosyn Genetics. The trio end up crossing paths with Dr Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Dr Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), and Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum), three characters who first appeared in the original 1993 film. Dominion was the first time the three actors starred in a film within the franchise since the Jurassic Park trilogy, although Goldblum had a brief cameo in Fallen Kingdom.

Screen Rant recently caught up with Trevorrow, who explained that the Jurassic World Dominion Extended Edition will feature more scenes with the legacy cast. The director admitted that he was shooting the original cast members as a "fan" and wanted to truly honor them by making them as "real" as he could. Trevorrow revealed that there are more scenes in the extended edition which feature the original cast. 

The appearance of the three main characters in Dominion from the original Jurassic Park was a welcomed addition to much of the franchise's fanbase. Trevorrow appeared to have wanted to do his best to honor their return in an honest way as opposed to what he called a "camera-winking" style that leans heavily on nostalgia and callbacks to the original film. -Screen Rant
