They do not appear in the credits of “Jurassic World: the world after” but they have marked the saga of dinosaurs over the episodes since 1993. Back to the children of the franchise and their journey after leaving the park.

Owen Grady (Chris Pratt), Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard), Alan Grant (Sam Neill), Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern), Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum): the reunion of Jurassic World: the world after were made between adults, without inviting the “Jurassic Kids” to the conclusion of the saga. Only Isabella Sermonwhich portrays a character introduced in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and now at the center of the narrative and genetic issues of the latest opus, thus stands out against the giganotosaurus and other giant grasshoppers.
