Jurassic Park could have been one of those franchises relegated to the world of perpetual nostalgia, trotted out only for Halloween costumes or flashback lists. Though Steven Spielberg tried many times to get a reboot off the ground, it was 12 years before the delayed sequel (also effectively a reboot) began development in earnest.
The 2015 reboot Jurassic World was well received by critics and fans, so well it begot another: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. However, this sequel was not universally beloved by critics.

Newcomer to the franchise Isabella Sermon might also return as Maisie Lockwood, the genetically-created offspring of John Hammond’s former partner Sir Benjamin Lockwood (James Cromwell).
