Jurassic World Should Crossover with Fast & Furious, Dominion Star Says

Jurassic World Dominion star DeWanda Wise thinks a crossover between the dinosaur franchise and the world of The Fast and the Furious would make a lot of sense. Speaking with That Hashtag Show, Wise, who joins Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady as former Air Force pilot Kayla Watts in Jurassic World Dominion, believes that – considering both tentpole franchises are owned by Universal – the likes of Dominic Toretto and his family should come face to face with the dinos.

“It’s Universal, so it would have to be The Fast and the Furious. What else can they do? They’ve already been to space!”

The Jurassic World trilogy has largely abandoned the atmosphere created by Steven Spielberg in Jurassic Park, with fight scenes, motorcycle chases, and shoot-outs bringing the franchise much more in line with the likes of Fast and Furious. This change has been much to the chagrin of many fans of the 1993 original but, now that this change has been made, merging the Jurassic franchise with Dom and the Fast and Furious crew might not be as difficult a task as initially thought.

Wise also makes the point that, now they have gone into space, where else does the Fast and Furious franchise have to go? Considering that Toretto and his family began their career stealing DVD players from trucks and have now saved the world from total destruction several times over, why not just add dinosaurs to the mix? Who doesn’t want to see Dom punch a Velociraptor in the face while running from a T-Rex?

Probably lots of people. But both franchises have now become so unlike what they once were, could it really do any harm?

Could Jurassic World Really Crossover with the Fast and Furious?

This is not the first time that a Jurassic World/Fast and Furious crossover has been suggested, with F9 director Justin Lin responding rather positively to the idea. “Well, I’ve never said never to anything,” Lin said during a press conference back in 2021. “And the fact that part of our philosophy is not to ever be boxed in or labeled. And that’s all I will say.”

Jurassic World Dominion director Colin Trevorrow, meanwhile, just loves the idea of what-ifs. “I don’t want to say anything because then the memes will stop,” Trevorrow said last year. “Reality is just not as much fun. I mean, have I ever heard anything about a franchise crossover? Of course not. But do I enjoy seeing people take it really seriously on Twitter? I do. So, let’s just keep having fun with the what-ifs.”

For now, audiences will have to just sit back and enjoy the Fast and Furious flavorings of Jurassic World Dominion. The sequel picks up four years after Isla Nublar has been destroyed, with dinosaurs now living alongside humans all over the world. This fragile balance will reshape the future and determine, once and for all, whether human beings are to remain the apex predators on a planet they now share with history’s most fearsome creatures.

Jurassic World Dominion is in theaters now. The Fast and Furious franchise is set to return with Fast X on May 19, 2023.
