Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment have pushed back Jurassic World: Dominion from June 11, 2021, to June 10, 2022.
The film has faced production delays due to the pandemic and is understood to be several weeks away from completing production in the UK.
Studio executives want enough time to ensure the theatrical global day-and-date release and advertising campaign go ahead smoothly, as there are multiple partners, theme park and consumer products obligations to consider.
Colin Trevorrow directs returning stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in the latest episode of the dinosaur action adventure, and serves as executive producer with Steven Spielberg.
Laura Dern, Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles, and new cast members are Mamoudou Athie, Scott Haze, Dichen Lachman, Daniella Pineda, Campbell Scott, Isabella Sermon, Justice Smith, Omar Sy, DeWanda Wise, and BD Wong.
Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley return as producers on the $5bn-plus global franchise, and Alexandra Derbyshire joins as executive producer.
Emily Carmichael co-wrote the screenplay with Trevorrow from a story by Derek Connolly and Trevorrow, who co-wrote Jurassic World and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Trevorrow directed 2015’s Jurassic World, which grossed $1.67bn worldwide and is the sixth highest-grossing film in history, unadjusted for inflation.
