where is jurassic park filmed

The new Jurassic World movie is being filmed in Canada

If you've always wondered where the Jurassic Park movies are filmed and which cities get the chance to watch otherworldly dinosaurs roam, then look no further. 

Because it turns out that between February 24 and March 6, the third instalment in the Jurassic World franchise will be filming around Metro Vancouver. 

According to the Vancouver Sun, the film, which is tentatively titled Arcadia, is set to film all over the world next year, including at London’s Pinewood Studios, the islands of Oahu and Malta and Gastown. 

And when a movie crew comes to Canada to film, that means the film's A-list celebs come with it. 

Don't forget to keep an eye out for leads Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard, as well as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing. 

Original Jurassic Park cast members Laura Dern, Sam Neill, Jeff Goldblum, and BD Wong will also make an appearance in the movie (and in Vancity).

The current working title comes from the name of the boat which transported the dinosaurs off Isla Nublar in last movie titled Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, but it's still subject to change. 

The latest film, set to hit theatres on June 11, 2021, will feature a world where dinosaurs roam freely since multiple species escaped in the previous movie. 

When speaking with Cinema Blend last year, lead actor Bryce Dallas Howard said she wanted the third film to take place in "a world with dinosaurs everywhere."

So if you were taken aback when witnessing the gruesome sights that filled Vancouver's streets while Stephen King's Radio Nowhere was being filmed last month, then prepare to be even more shocked come February.
