One where the genetically resurrected dinosaurs have finally breached all boundaries and fences and have spread unchecked into the world on the loose.
Exactly how Dominion’s characters battle the threat of a world inhabited by prehistoric predators remains to be seen, however expression of this early footage bodes well for an activity packed blockbuster sure to appease fans both new and old alike. Perhaps the original Jurassic Park stars might have some sage advice for their younger counterparts, and there may in any case be a way for humans to coexist peacefully alongside the now wild dinosaurs. Jurassic World: Dominion is currently slated to hit theaters on June tenth, 2022.
