Yesterday, Deadline reported that Laura Dern, Sam Neil and Jeff Goldblum will be reprising their characters for Jurassic World 3. While Goldblum’s return isn’t much of a surprise since he already reprised his role as Dr. Ian Malcom in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, it is surprising to see both Laura Dern and Sam Neil returning to portray their roles. For those who are not aware Sam Neil portrayed Dr. Alan Grant while Laura Dern played Dr. Ellie Sattler Degler in the original three Jurassic Park films. Production of the film is stated to start next year, although no other details are confirmed at this time so stay tuned for updates.
I was happy to see Jeff Goldblum return to reprise his role for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, however I was disappointed to see how little of a role he played in the film. Hopefully with the return of Sam Neil and Laura Dern the trio will have a much larger role in this film and it will be interesting to see the two generations of characters meet up for the first time.
