The Reel 360 team has a feeling that production is going to be very start and stop in a world with a pandemic crisis still very much going on. Less then twenty-four hours after announcing the decision to push back Jurassic World: Dominion to June 2022, Universal and director Colin Trevorrow have announced that production on the dino three-quel has been shut down for at least two weeks due to positive COVID cases.

Trevorrow stresses that the individuals who tested positive have since tested negative, but the cast and crew will adhere to the extensive safety protocols set by the studio and halt filming until everyone is completely in the clear.
