“Jurassic World: Dominion” released a new poster on Tuesday, showing the iconic “Jurassic Park” logo encased in amber. It’s pretty cool. And it suggests the “Jurassic Park” franchise is coming to an end. But that might not necessarily be the case.

Chris Pratt posted a photo on Instagram of the poster. He wrote, “Thirty years of Jurassic legacy culminate in one epic final film. Like the fabled monsters of 65 million years ago, this film too shall RULE THE EARTH.”

We get it, Chris. It’s an epic final film.

But look at what “Jurassic World: Dominion” producer Frank Marshall told Collider in May. He hinted that the franchise might last longer than the new movie.

“It’s the start of a new era,” he said. “The dinosaurs are now on the mainland amongst us, and they will be for quite some time, I hope.”

Back to Pratt. In February, Pratt said “Jurassic World 3” is basically like “Avengers: Endgame” in that it puts an end on the franchise.

“This feels like (the end). It’s got everybody. It’s got pretty much everybody in it, maybe I just blew it but I don’t care. I know that like all the cast from the original ‘Jurassic Park’ is coming back and so it’s going to feel very much like how (Avengers) ‘Endgame’ brought everything together at Marvel.”

It’s hard to understand whether or not the new film is the end of the franchise. Reactions seem mixed from people involved in the project. Guess we’ll have to see how it goes in 2022 when the film drops and if those dinosaurs — like life — find a way to survive.
