Jurassic Park 4 has finally been given a release date and will also be known by a different name.

The movie, which is being release by Universal Pictures follows on from the hugely popular 1993 original and sequels The Lost World: Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III.
Universal Pictures have officially announced that the fourth instalment of the American science fiction adventure franchise will be released on the 12th of June 2015.

Unlike the original movie though it won’t be directed by the legendary Steven Spielberg. Instead Colin Trevorrow who has previously directed science fiction comedy ‘Safety Not Guaranteed’ will take on the role.

Along with directing the movie Trevorrow has also written the screenplay with Derek Connolly who worked on ‘Gary: Under Crisis’.


Jurassic Park 4 will officially be known as ‘Jurassic World’ it has also been revealed.

Director Colin Trevvorow had also revealed recently that for the new film he wanted to introduce a new dinosaur.

Plot details for ‘Jurassic World’ have not yet been released but it has been confirmed that the new film will take place on Isla Nublar which is the island where the original ‘Jurassic Park’ was set.

‘Jurassic World’ has already had its fair share of delays. Filming was supposed to begin in July 2013 but had been postponed to allow screenwriters Trevorrow and Connolly time to work on an original draft by Amanda Silver and Rick Jaffa.

It was also delayed to give Spielberg, who is an executive  producer, enough time to give notes on the revised script, according to Variety.

While speaking to JP Forever Trevvorow discussed the potential of a new dinosaur but didn’t want to give too much away: “We have a new one that’s pretty cool. I’m not going to tell you anything about it, but… it’s pretty badass,” he said.


“I think Jack Horner said something about that too… I feel like, obviously, everyone’s favourite is the T-Rex and there’s just something so iconic about that animal.”

Jurassic World we now know will be released on the 12th of June 2015.
