There’s still several months before you’ll actually be able to see Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom in theaters. However, it’s evidently never too early to start thinking about the movie that will follow it.
Universal Pictures has announced an official release date for Jurassic World 3. The studio tweeted an image promising the movie will hit theaters on June 11, 2021–over three years from now. The film will, presumably, once again star Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. Then again, who knows? There could be no human survivors at the end of Jurassic World 2, with part three simply being a romantic comedy starring two dinosaurs.

It also remains to be seen who will direct the film. Colin Trevorrow, who directed the first Jurassic World film, will return as an executive producer and co-screenwriter, alongside Pacific Rim: Uprising writer Emily Carmichael.
Trevorrow has said all along that he envisions the Jurassic World films as a trilogy, so there’s no surprise that a third movie will happen–especially given that the first film made over $1.6 billion at the box office. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, meanwhile, will arrive in theaters on June 22. Pratt and Howard reprise their roles from the first film and are joined by Jeff Goldblum, returning to play his original Jurassic Park character, Dr. Ian Malcolm.
