Jurassic World 3 is set to hit theaters in 2021, meaning we'll finally get to find out just how many innocent civilians were torn apart by velociraptors because of one nine-year-old girl's staggeringly stupid decision to free a bunch of dinosaurs at the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Obviously this reboot series hasn't shied away from tickling our collective nostalgia with its shout-outs to the original Jurassic Park, from sculptures of John Hammond to abandoned Jeeps to giant piles of dino poop. And it seems as though the next movie is no exception.
Reportedly, Jurassic Park's beloved trio of heroes (Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, and Ian Malcolm) will be returning in Jurassic World 3. This is according to Bryce Dallas Howard, who literally confirmed the news through a series of blinks, as if she were caught up in some sort of hostage situation. While this news may be exciting to some, it's probably worth tempering our expectations, seeing as how most of the Jurassic Park sequels have had no damn idea what to do with these characters. Take the recent Fallen Kingdom, for example. It made headlines when it was announced that Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) would be returning to the Jurassic-verse.
