He says, “Maybe because we hadn’t done it! That’s kind of the answer, right? It felt to me that you’re someone who enjoys our films and you love Dinosaurs enough, I can’t imagine that seeing The Cretaceous Era wouldn’t interest you. And it was something I wanted in the end; I think there is self-indulgence in it.

When I was a kid, I was a dinosaur nerd who wanted to see that world and now I am lucky enough to be able to realize it. I went out and just grabbed the opportunity.”

The movie is going to be a peaceful nature film, which will give the viewers a mind-boggling experience of the serenity of Earth. This time, there is going to be an introduction to new seven species of Dinosaurs that have been never seen in the previous Jurassic World movies.

There is going to be a scene where a mosquito will be sucking T-Rex’s blood, which is going to be a call back to the OG Jurassic Park as John Hammond uses the DNA from a preserved mosquito to clone dinosaurs. In a way, Jurassic World: Dominion will be taking us to The Cretaceous Era where we will find insight into the story of dinosaurs.
