Exclusive: ‘Jurassic World’ Live-Action Series in the Works
The GWW has exclusively learned that a ‘Jurassic World’ live-action series is currently in the works. The television series is set to take place in the same continuity as the upcoming ‘Jurassic World 3.’ We have learned that the movie will have sets resembling Vancouver, Canada, due to production on the series taking place there.
This news shouldn’t be all too surprising, seeing as how it’s been hinted at before: ‘Jurassic World’ writer and director Colin Trevorrow held a Q&A during a screening of the first ‘Jurassic World’ movie.
During the Q&A, last September, Trevorrow was asked about the possibility of a live-action television series, replying with:
“If the audience demands [other live-action stories], we will provide.”
Fans have been asking for a ‘Jurassic World’ live-action series for a while now, and it seems like NBCUniversal is finally listening.
‘Jurassic Park,’ later known as ‘Jurassic World’ with its soft reboot, is made up of films centered on disastrous attempts at creating a theme park of cloned dinosaurs. Numerous video games and comic books based on the franchise have been created since the release of the 1993 film, and several water rides have been opened at various Universal theme parks. As of 2000, the franchise had generated $5 billion in revenue, making it one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time.
So, it’s no surprise the franchise is finally branching out into television. This live-action series would follow in the footsteps of the animated series ‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous,’ releasing on Netflix later this year.
Meanwhile, ‘Jurassic World 3’ is set to hit theaters on June 11, 2021. The cast will see the return of Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Jake Johnson, Omar Sy, and fan-favorite trio Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum, as well as newcomers Mamoudou Athie and DeWanda Wise.
There is currently no premiere date, or cast and crew information, for the live-action ‘Jurassic World’ series as of now.
