We celebrated when Jeff Goldblum returned as Jurassic Park favorite Ian Malcolm in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Unfortunately, even after several rumors, Sam Neill didn’t make an appearance as Dr. Alan Grant in J.A. Bayona‘s sequel. The former is important because it not only confirmed the filmmakers were open to bringing back characters from Jurassic Park, but have executed on it. The idea of seeing Neill’s Grant return in the next sequel isn’t out of the cards. What about Laura Dern‘s Dr. Ellie Sattler?
While this is a bit of non-news (and wishful thinking on my part), Dern has openly expressed a desire to revisit the character. If the filmmakers were to reach out to her, we could see a huge reunion that would be celebrated among fans everywhere.
“I don’t know, I have no idea actually,” Dern told ET in response to rumors of a possible cameo. “I mean, I love Dr. Ellie Satler so I could never say no to that on any level,” she admitted. “But I really don’t know, I don’t even know what they’re cooking up yet.”
Both Chris Pratt and Jeff Goldblum have both previously expressed their openness to have Dern’s character return in any capacity she wants.
