What Jeff Goldblum’s Return Means for JURASSIC WORLD 2

Two years ago, Jurassic World completely revitalized the Jurassic Park franchise while largely ignoring the events of the second and third films. Now, as Jurassic World 2 finally enters production, it seems that a familiar face from the past is ready to rejoin the dino action. Jeff Goldblum‘s Ian Malcolm is making a comeback, and today’s Nerdist News is examining the Jurassic continuity fallout.

Join host Jessica Chobot as she welcomes Goldblum back to the Jurassic World sequel. Of course this isn’t Goldblum’s second turn with the franchise. Ian Malcolm took center stage during the events of The Lost World, and he had been largely discredited because he wrote about his adventures during the first film in the face of a cover up. Naturally, it was pretty hard to pretend the that the cloned dinosaurs didn’t exist once they started stomping around in downtown San Diego!

Sharp eyed fans may have noticed that Ian Malcolm’s book, “God Creates Dinosaur,” in the background of Jurassic World. We can’t help but wonder if Malcolm wrote that book before The Lost World or after. Either way, we’re thinking that Jurassic World 2 will either have to acknowledge the events of The Lost World or else fully commit to the idea that they didn’t happen.

The Lost World Jeff Goldblum

Goldblum isn’t the only new addition for the sequel. James Cromwell is also joining the cast as Benjamin Lockwood, a man who played a key role in helping Jurassic Park founder, John Hammond, create the cloning technology to revive the dinosaurs. And in the first picture of Cromwell as Lockwood, he looks like he could win a cosplay award for channeling the late Sir Richard Attenborough. Additionally, one of the latest details to emerge is that we may see some dino action on a submarine. And we are totally down for that!
