Steven Spielberg is one of the most iconic modern directors of all time, responsible for countless iconic properties. Chief among them is Jurassic Park, which broke new ground visually and started a massive franchise. The original trio of heroes will reprise their role for Colin Trevorrow's mysterious Jurassic World 3, including Laura Dern as Ellie Sattler. And the Oscar-nominated actress recently explained why she's so excited to reprise her role in the upcoming sequel.
Ellie Sattler is the heroine of Jurassic Park, and eventually popped back up for a brief role in Jurassic Park III. Laura Dern will appear alongside fellow co-stars Jeff Goldblum and Sam Neill in Jurassic World 3, to the delight of the hardcore fandom who has been wondering what Ellie has been up to. Laura Dern recently spoke to her return to the property, saying:
Laura Dern is returning to the Jurassic Park franchise after nearly two decades, and she's seen how Ellie Sattler has continued to inspire future generations. Now Dern will be able to take her life experience into this new version of the character, further ensuring Ellie's legacy in pop culture.
The Marriage Story actress' comments to IMDB shows how much love and work is being put into Jurassic World 3. Colin Trevorrow might be the architect behind the current trilogy, but he's also collaborating with those who made Jurassic Park into a reality back in 1993. While the Star Wars franchise has operated without George Lucas' blessing, Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall have put their two cents into the upcoming blockbuster.
Given how Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ended, it makes sense that Ellie and her colleagues might be called in for help. Dinosaurs are now living among us, and chaos has no doubt ensued in the world since the last movie ended. Ellie Sattler obviously has a ton of experience with these creatures, and she'll be an important resource in this new world.
Jurassic World 3 is currently set to arrive in theaters on June 11th, 2021. In the meantime, check out our 2020 release list to plan your next trip to the movies.
