Fans of the Jurassic Park/ World films have had to endure months of teasing from the stars, including Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt and even director, Colin Trevorrow, on whether or not the cast from the first films will be making a comeback.
Chris Pratt teases at the opening ceremony for Jurassic World: The Ride, mentioning that, “I would love to see some of the other characters from the original Jurassic Park movies.”
Bryce Dallas Howard and Laura Dern were the biggest teases of all. The two were guests on Good Morning America when Howard sat with the audience and asked Dern to be a part of the third film. With which Dern requested that Howard join her. Howard’s answer? “Hell yes!”
It wasn’t until Colin Trevorrow held a big screen premiere for Battle at Big Rock, followed by a Q&A. After hearing the burning question all fans are dying to know the answer to, Trevorrow brought out Laura Dern herself and announced, that indeed, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill will be returning for the third Jurassic World Film! It was also revealed that the three will have major roles and not just small cameos.
While Bryce was on the green carpet for the 2nd Annual Environmental Media Association Honors Benefit Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday, September 28, she spoke with US Weekly about the newly released information.
“That was painful! “I don’t think I was very effective in keeping that secret. … I was like not effectively cagey about it, basically. People were like, ‘Is it happening?’ I’m like, ‘Mmm …’”
“I’m thrilled,” Howard said on Saturday. “Very, very, very, very, very excited. It feels really right and exhilarating because … these are the founders, essentially, of Jurassic Park, and so to have them join in now, it almost, in a way, legitimizes the last couple of movies and brings the whole narrative together.”
“Jeff Goldblum was in the last film. Just a total blast. I straight up, like, stalked Sam Neill a little bit. Like, I’ve gone to New Zealand and I found out where he lived and I maybe, like, drove past his property. I’m like, ‘That’s where he lives!’ … And then Laura is actually a friend and has been for quite a while.”
“It’s a good group,” the actress concluded. “Like, we are just all people that love running from dinosaurs. We’re going to do it together!”US Weekly
