Jurassic World Dominion Will Pick The Story Straight From The Original Novel For an Epic Conclusion

When Jurassic Park first came to the silver screen, not many were acquainted with the original novels that were adapted into blockbuster movies. Authored by Michael Crichton, the Jurassic Park novels were in close correlation with the movie scripts. However, with Jurassic World Dominion approaching theatrical release, this is the first time the script of the movie has been entirely separated from the novels. The original books were never adapted word for word into the screenplay, but there was a larger context that connected the novel and its adaptations. In the end, though, the novel left an open-ended conclusion for the dinosaur species as they emerged from the island and stepped out into the mainland. The film negates that theory and plays it safe. With Jurassic World Dominion, if the movie is anything similar to its title, perhaps we will finally be invoking the original novel and the original authorial interpretation on the big screen.

Jurassic Park vs. Jurassic World Dominion

The original novel authored by Michael Crichton was meticulously researched and composed as a pedagogical text. He wanted to show the evils of science when it is stretched to its limits. With apathy and unbiased sentiment, he set out to create the madman, the scientist, and the human’s natural affliction towards self-destruction. The novel was a testament to the hubris that ultimately becomes every man’s hamartia.

So too did the first novel begin and end — with Hammond’s invention of genetically engineered dinosaurs, setting in of his God-complex, and finally being killed by his own creations. The novel also killed off Henry Wu, however, we find the Doctor very much alive in Steven Spielberg’s 1993 adaptation and even getting a redemption arc in Jurassic World Dominion.

The novel finished with an open ending that suggested that strange animals were seen moving through the jungles of Costa Rica, implying that the dinosaurs had made it off Hammond’s theme park island. This arc was vastly repressed from happening all throughout the 5 movies that were produced so far. But the latest (and possibly, last) movie of the franchise picks up where Crichton leaves off. With no more references from the books or the author, the closing movie, Jurassic World Dominion promises to be the boldest project yet.

Jurassic World Dominion: The End of the Jurassic Era

Following the destruction of Isla Nublar, the dinosaurs now roam free in the wild as the world learns to coexist with the ferocious creatures. But as is the case with every science-gone-wrong movie, humans always have a tendency to come out on top (unless there are zombies involved!)

The last movie of the franchise will reunite the Jurassic Park cast with the stars of the Jurassic World saga. Sam Neill’s Alan Grant, Jeff Goldblum’s Dr. Ian Malcolm, and Laura Dern’s Dr. Ellie Sattler will join Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire Dearing for a final send-off to the epic Jurassic journey.

Directed by Colin Trevorrow, Jurassic World Dominion comes out in theatres on June 10, 2022.
