What’s the story of Jurassic World: Dominion? An unofficial synopsis has been floating about.

When young Maisie (Isabella Sermon) is abducted by dino-poachers, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) set out to find and rescue her, with their journey taking them to a dinosaur habitat operated by a global corporation with a possibly sinister agenda… that’s even now being investigated by Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern).

We do know that dinosaurs are off the Island now so Jurassic World 3 will shoot for about 100 days all over the world.

World filming dates: February 25th – July 2020.

The bulk of filming for Jurassic World: Dominion takes place in the U.K.’s Pinewood Studios.

Director: Colin Trevorrow.

The script is unbelievable. Colin Trevorrow who directed Jurassic World  and wrote and directed Jurassic World is coming back to do this one…I can’t wait. . . I will shoot on and off until July….it’s a big one….probably close to 100 shoot days….it’s a massive movie. It’s a big movie. We’ll be all over the world. The story is really really engaging. Really cool. — Chris Pratt on The Ellen Show.
