Universal Studios has decided to shift the release date of their highly-anticipated film Jurassic: World Dominion by one year to protect it from the pandemic. The film which was slated to release in July 2021, will now hit the theatres on June 10, 2022.
The new instalment in one of cinema’s biggest franchises is the latest film to have a rescheduling in its release date amid the global coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic has made Hollywood studios reshuffle release dates of several films as the industry tries to recover from a global shutdown of cinemas in March.

For the past three months, I’ve worked with an extraordinary cast and crew on a film we can’t wait to share with the world. Even though we'll have to wait a bit longer, it will all be worth it. Let’s stay healthy and take care of each other until then. pic.twitter.com/vnGzhHs4nR

Reportedly, the Jurassic World franchise is scheduled to compete against an untitled Disney/20th century studios film. Jurassic: World Dominion is directed by Colin Trevorrow and stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neill and Laura Dern. It is a spin-off from the 1993 blockbuster Jurassic Park about the return of dinosaurs.
