Jurassic World may have been originally imagined as a trilogy but it seems the franchise isn't extinct yet as new reports have emerged of a new film going into the works.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a fourth film in the sequel series to Jurassic Park has been greenlit and the publication has revealed some information about what is to come.

Here is everything we know so far about Jurassic World 4.

What is the plot of Jurassic World 4?

The Hollywood Reporter announced that the fourth Jurassic World movie will be written by David Koepp, who previously worked on the script for Steven Spielberg's original 1993 classic as well as its 1997 sequel The Lost World: Jurassic Park.

The sequel will be helmed by Gareth Edwards, the same filmmaker behind 2023's visual epic The Creator and Star Wars spin-off Rogue One. Edwards' involvement was unveiled in February 2024, a short time after it was announced that the original director who was set to helm the film - Bullet Train filmmaker David Leitch - had dropped out.

The Hollywood Reporter also revealed that the new film will be executive produced by Spielberg, and produced by Frank Marshall and Patrick Crowley whose ties to the franchise go back a long way.

The movie is expected to launch a new era of the franchise, with reports suggesting that it will focus on a whole new story that will reignite the film series and take it in a new direction.

When will Jurassic World 4 be released?

According to reports, Jurassic World 4 is said to be far enough along to have a 2025 release window. The film has not yet begun production, and Universal has not yet confirmed the film's potential release date though.

It has been reported that Jurassic World 4 won't mark the return of sequel trilogy cast members Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, nor will it see fan favourites Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern reprise their roles from the Jurassic Park franchise.

As yet, no casting has been announced for the film but this will likely be announced in due course when Universal begins making official announcements to the public.

Is there a trailer for Jurassic World 4?

With production not yet underway there is no footage to speak of that could be used for a trailer, but once filming has finished there will be an array of teasers and official trailers for fans to enjoy.
