Jurassic World star Chris Pratt has compared the upcoming third film in the rebooted franchise to mega blockbuster Avengers: Endgame.

The untitled movie — which is filming this year under the working title Arcadia — will reunite many of the cast members from the first Jurassic Park film in 1993.

Jeff Goldblum will return as Dr Ian Malcolm after his cameo in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, while Sam Neill and Laura Dern are also set to reprise their iconic roles.

Pratt revealed that he is about to jet off to begin shooting during an interview on The Ellen Show to promote his role in Pixar’s Onward.

When asked by Ellen DeGeneres if this was “the end” for the franchise, Pratt said it “feels like it”.

He added: “It’s got everybody. It’s got pretty much everybody in it. Maybe I just blew it, but I don’t care.

“All of the cast from the original Jurassic Park is coming back, so it’s going to feel very much like how Endgame brought everything together at Marvel.”

Avengers: Endgame, in which Pratt played Star-Lord, rode the reunion of the central Marvel Cinematic Universe cast members to the tune of $2.8bn (£2.2bn) at the box office, making it the highest-grossing movie of all time.

Pratt said he will be shooting Jurassic World 3 with returning director Colin Trevorrow until July, clocking up around 100 days on set.

The 40-year-old described the script, penned by Trevorrow and Emily Carmichael, as “unbelievable”.

He added: “It’s a massive movie. It’s a big movie. We’ll be all over the world.

“The story is really, really engaging and really cool.”
