When Chris Pratt isn’t busy being Star-Lord, a LEGO man, or a certain Italian plumber, you can find him taming dinos. In the latest official image from Jurassic World Dominion, we get a glimpse of Pratt’s dino-trainer character Owen Grady gently leading a Parasaurolophus along with a rope.

In previous Jurassic World movies, Chris Pratt’s character was seen training velociraptors, so an herbivore is probably a nice change of pace. Of course, nothing in the Jurassic Park franchise ever goes to plan, so there is sure to be plenty of dino-related danger to enjoy. Jurassic World Dominion is the third movie in the Jurassic World trilogy and the sixth entry in the Jurassic Park series overall. Take a look at the image below:

Jurassic World: Dominion is set after four years after the events of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. The previous film ended with dinosaurs being released to roam free in our world, instead of being confined to the islands in Costa Rica where they were created. Whether or not this was a good idea (probably not) remains to be seen. Though it looks like Chris Pratt’s character is still very much in the dinosaur business.

Jurassic World: Dominion is directed by Colin Trevorrow, who returns to the series after directing the first entry in the series in 2015. Along with Chris Pratt, the film co-stars Bryce Dallas Howard as scientist Claire Dearling in her third turn as the character. Perhaps the biggest casting news about Jurassic World: Dominion is the return of original trilogy stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum. The paleontologist duo and chaos theorist haven’t shared the screen since Steven Spielberg’s seminal blockbuster in 1993. Jurassic Park is a universally beloved movie, so this bit of casting definitely bodes well for fans. Of course, there’s also the myriad of dinos to look forward to.

According to Trevorrow, we’re going to get a look at these dinosaurs Chris Pratt keeps trying to tame as we’ve never seen them before. Since they’re typically contained to the islands of Nublar and Sorna, we’ve never seen them interact in anything other than a tropical setting. Trevorrow indicates that Jurassic World: Dominion will be more of a global experience, allowing us to see dinosaurs living in all kinds of different environments and biomes.

Jurassic World: Dominion also looks like it will get a book-central antagonist in the form of Lewis Dodgson (Campbell Scott). In the original Jurassic Park, you see him in a minor role where he hires the bumbling Nedry (Wayne Knight) to steal dinosaur DNA from the park labs. The plan goes awry when a Dilophosaurus cuts Nedry’s plans short. In Jurassic World: Dominion the character will apparently feature more prominently.

In the way of dino-antagonists, there’s no word yet. The last two Jurassic World films featured the Indominus Rex and Indominus Raptor, respectively. It remains to be seen if there will be another genetically enhanced monster or if the dinos will be the more typical versions we’re used to (though without the feathers). Jurassic World Dominion will be released in theatres on June 10, 2022. Stay tuned for more dino news.
