‘Jurassic World: Dominion’, the final installment of the Jurassic World saga, starring Bryce Dallas Howard (Claire Dearing) and Chris Pratt (Owen Grady), reunites the original cast of ‘Jurassic Park’—Jeff Goldblum (Ian Malcolm), Laura Dern (Ellie Sattler) and Sam Neill (Alan Grant)—who will be present for a denouement full of nostalgia that teaches coexistence.

Metro interviewed Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, DeWanda Wise (Kayla Watts) and director Colin Trevorrow during their visit to Mexico, where they revealed exclusive secrets from the filming of the third installment.


What was the most memorable moment of this installment, the one you will treasure for the rest of your life?

Bryce Dallas Howard: Of the whole franchise, it would be when I got on a helicopter and we flew over Hawaii and they were filming from below. It was that moment when I noticed the locations where they shot ‘Jurassic Park’ and I couldn’t believe what was happening and what was to come. Everything I dreamed of and even better. It’s been an incredible experience and the people that I got a chance to work with and that we became family with… it just changed my life.

Jeff Goldblum: It’s this moment, right now, having the movie finished and showing it to people and being together discovering each other like we never did, hearing each other’s responses. It’s quite nice and I seriously love it.

DeWanda Wise: We were in the pandemic, it was the first two weeks of filming with Chris Pratt. It was that precious moment where we were all aware of how cautious we had to be, but we also realized how grateful we were to be able to be there. I’ll never forget it.

Colin Trevorrow: It was on the last day of shooting, we were all in the helicopter and I saw all the actors together, from ‘Jurassic Park’ to ‘Jurassic World’, I didn’t think it was that special until I saw it and that’s where it all ended, it was the last scene we shot.


What was the best part of the meeting and reuniting with the original cast?

Bryce Dallas Howard: It was wonderful to witness the talent and experience of the original cast.

Jeff Goldblum: I’m always experimenting and like to be interested in other people’s processes.

DeWanda Wise: For me, knowing that Jeff Goldblum still does the work and loves what he does was very inspiring.


If you could describe the saga in one sentence, what would it be?

Bryce Dallas Howard: Epic.

Jeff Goldblum: Transformational and spooky.


What is your favorite dinosaur?

Bryce Dallas Howard: Dreadnoughtus.

Jeff Goldblum: Because I’m a Libra, on one side we have the Giganotosaurus, and on the other side I like the one with feathers that’s in the new movie.

DeWanda Wise: Pyroraptor, but it might be different tomorrow because my zodiac sign is Gemini.

Jurassic World: Dominion‘ will hit theaters on June 10.
