Principal photography has ended on Jurassic World: Dominion. Director Colin Trevorrow announced the news this weekend via Twitter.

The shoot began earlier this year but was shutdown in March due to Covid-19 restrictions. The film then resumed filming in July only to face another two-week shut down in October when crew members tested positive for the virus. Despite delays, however, the cast and crew returned time and again to continue working on the film.
“I’m not sure I can put it into words,” Trevorrow told Deadline over the weekend. “It has been remarkable. Our crew and our cast has been so resilient. All producers have worked around the clock to make it the best it can be. It has been inspiring.”
Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return for this sequel and are joined by original Jurassic Park stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Jeff Goldblum as well as B.D. Wong. Newcomers to Jurassic World: Dominion include Mamoudou Athie, Dichen Lachman, Daniella Pineda, and Campbell Scott.
Sam Neill also took to Twitter this weekend, saying:
There were days we thought we might not make it. But we have…we pulled off what seemed well nigh impossible . Great crew. Lovely cast . Top director. Phew- and CELEBRATIONS. #JurassicWorldDominion #JurassicPark https://t.co/MCzIo3efxF
