The news comes a day after the movie was pushed back to 2022.
Jurassic World: Dominion, which follows up from 2018's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, was due to arrive in cinemas on June 11th in 2021, but has now been pushed back and will arrive on June 10th in 2022.
Sam Neill and Laura Dern, who starred in the original Jurassic Park, will be back for this new movie.
They will play alongside a returning Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, Omar Sy, Jake Johnson and Justice Smith.
Dominion will see Trevorrow return to direct the third instalment of the trilogy that began with Jurassic World.
Trevorrow has written the script with Emily Carmichael, having composed the story with regular writing partner Derek Connolly.
