Jeff Goldblum was in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom to drop a few oh’s, but his Jurassic Park co-stars Sam Neill and Laura Dern have yet to come back to the franchise to tell everyone that maybe humans and dinosaurs shouldn’t co-exist. It would be a shock if they didn’t show up in Jurassic World 3, though; director Colin Trevorrow is coming back and he said he would “feel robbed” if JP fans didn’t get to see Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler again, while in his latest comments made by Bryce Dallas Howard make it sound like its all confirmed.
When asked by MTV News on the Rocket Man red carpet whether she’s “excited about the prospect of sharing some scenes with the OG Jurassic Parkcast” (that’s some clever (girl) phrasing), the actress responded, “Yes, very much so. I don’t know what’s been confirmed or whatever, but I’ll blink if it’s happening…” Needless to say, she didn’t take the Doctor’s advice and blinked.

Neill and Dern didn’t go to Isla Nublar since 2001’s Jurassic Park 3, which, considering how many times they were almost eaten by prehistoric dinos, makes sense. Do Alan and Ellie need to be in Jurassic Kingdom 3? Not really, no, but it would be so much fun to see them back on the screen. It would be good for them, too.
Jurassic World 3 will hit theaters June 11, 2021.
