We just can’t get enough dinosaurs.
“Jurassic World 3” is hitting theaters on June 11, 2021, and actors Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern and Sam Neill will all appear in the film.
The trio starred in the original “Jurassic Park” back in 1993 and are reprising their roles for this third installment of the “Jurassic World” franchise. Their casting was announced at a special screening of “Jurassic World” at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood on Sept. 24.
In addition to appearing in the original “Jurassic Park,” Dern returned to play Dr. Ellie Sattler in 2001’s “Jurassic Park III,” and Neill also portrayed Dr. Alan Grant in that film.
Goldblum appeared as Dr. Ian Malcolm in both 1997’s “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” and in 2018’s “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.”
Dern was on hand for the exciting announcement, and Collider tweeted out a video of director Colin Treverrow introducing Dern. The actress let the crowd know that Goldblum and Neill will be joining her in the new movie:

“[email protected] is also bringing back the original cast of ‘Jurassic Park,’ Sam Neill and @JeffGoldblum to reprise their roles in #JurassicWorld3!” read the tweet.
After being introduced to enthusiastic cheers from the audience, Dern said, “I’m so excited. I’m so excited to share this news and be here with all of you. I love dinosaurs. I love that you love them like we do, and if it’s not asking too much, if I’m gonna get to join this party again, I would hate to not bring my friends Sam Neil and Jeff Goldblum. Is that OK with you?”
“Yeah, let’s do it,” replies Trevorrow, who directed both “Jurassic World” and “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.”
“All right, let’s do it, guys!” says an enthusiastic Dern.
At the end of the last “Jurassic World” movie, a dinosaur auction had gone wrong, allowing dinosaurs to escape a mansion. It remains to be seen where the next installment will pick up.
