Jurassic World 3 promises to finally unleash the dinosaurs on the real world. In the ensuing battle between mankind and nature, it should be the prehistoric creatures that reign supreme.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom completely changed the Jurassic franchise, finally delivering on the promise of its title; in the film's ending, the dinosaurs were released out into the Californian night just as dino-DNA was transported for further experimentation. As Dr. Ian Malcolm warned, "Welcome to Jurassic World".
This didn't just wrap up Jurassic World 2's questions about Mother Nature's dominance, but also set up where the franchise is going with Jurassic World 3. Our kingdom, as we know it, is indeed beginning to fall, and as we head into the third movie in the trilogy a full evolutionary war looks set to break out. What's more, this is a war that the dinosaurs should win.

The Humans Are The Real Villains of Jurassic World
Throughout all of the Jurassic movies, the humans have been the bad guys, but it's particularly evident in the Jurassic World reboot. Despite everything that's gone before, humans still can't resist dabbling in genetics and cloning in order to create hybrid dinosaurs. Not only that, but they seem surprised when those hybrids don't turn out exactly as they'd expect. Advancements in science and technology are all well and good, but humans seem unable to grasp that such knowledge and power needs to be reined in.
Way back in Jurassic Park, John Hammond successfully brought dinosaurs back to life in order to create a theme park where humans could visit the creatures and marvel at their spectacular glory. The problem is, dinosaurs were never meant to be tamed. It's bad enough that we cage lions, tigers, and other magnificent beasts, but dinosaurs? Some of these are ferocious, giant predators and, as we've seen multiple times, they are capable of killing with just one bite.
Jurassic World saw Hammond's dream theme park now fully open and operational. Was it ethical to have cloned and caged all these animals for profit and human satisfaction? No, but it seemed as though maybe the world was now satisfied; maybe humans had done all the scientific processes needed to bring dinosaurs back to life and now it was time to sit back and appreciate their spectacle. Humans are never satisfied, though, and advancements continued to be made. Next came Owen Grady hand-rearing a group of raptors, taming them to respond to his clicks and calls. Added to that, we also had the first cloned dinosaur, the Indominus Rex. Bigger, more fearsome and powerful than its base genome, the T-Rex, the I-Rex was designed by Dr. Henry Wu with the intention of weaponizing the species; she killed multiple times for sport and was intelligent enough to purposefully evade capture.
You can look at the Indominous Rex as a deadly, violent predator, or you can realize that this is a creature that should never have been created in the first place. Who are we, as humans, to mess around with genetics, science, and cloning, and then bemoan the consequences when they don't go our way? We see exactly the same scenario play out in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, with the creation of the Indoraptor. It seems Dr. Wu has learned nothing from his earlier experiments and continues to play God, creating a prototype that is pure killing machine, lacking in the necessary DNA needed from Blue to make her more empathetic.
In Fallen Kingdom, Wu's dream of weaponizing dinosaurs is approaching a reality; after evacuating Isla Nublar, InGen is now looking to sell dinosaurs to the highest bidder, to people who have no idea how to care for them, just so they can turn a profit and continue to clone more and more of the Indoraptors. This doesn't go to plan thanks to a batch of rebels: Blue's T-Rex blood transfusion has clouded the gene pool, Owen lets the Stygimoloch escape, and human clone Maisie sets the rest of the dinosaurs free. The fall of the kingdom has begun. And now it's time for payback.
