Universal Pictures has halted the filming of Jurassic World Dominion, the third film in the Jurassic World series due to the global coronavirus pandemic, according to Collider. At the moment, it is not clear if the film’s June 11, 2021 release date will be affected as well.
Dominion is also the sixth film in the Jurassic film franchise that began with Steve Spielberg’s Jurassic Park in 1993. The franchise is based on genetically-recreated, cloned dinosaurs housed in a theme park using newfound DNA. The dinosaurs wreak havoc on humans, theme park crew and tourists alike, after they get out of control.
Jurassic World: Dominion will pick up from the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The JA Bayona directorial ended with the pre-historic beasts escaping into the world after being freed. The final film in the franchise will address the fallout.
