The original cast of Steven Spielberg’s 1993 sci-fi action-adventure movie Jurassic Park has reunited for the first time since the original film in the latest installment in the Jurassic Park franchise.

Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum, who played paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler, paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant, and chaotician Dr. Ian Malcolm, respectively, are reprising their roles in this year’s summer blockbuster Jurassic World Dominion.

Speaking to Digital Spy about her return to the movie, Laura revealed that discussions about her Jurassic Park comeback began when she was filming The Last Jedi in 2017.

“They had been speaking about it for some time. What would it look like? What do you think she would do for a living now? All those questions had started.”

“I was making a Star Wars movie at Pinewood [and producer] Frank Marshall asked me to come for a visit, so that was my first re-entry back to a set with a raptor and his friends. We started having more and more conversation around it, and it seemed really exciting to me.”

She recalled, “We sent a picture to Steven Spielberg the day the three of us were back together for the first time. We all were teary, it was very sweet and so fun.”

On Monday, the 55-year-old actress attended the LA premiere of Jurassic World Dominion, and she turned up in a two-piece color-blocked ensemble from Prada.

Laura, who’s always been experimental with her red-carpet fashion choices, opted for a satin look, with a luminous blue turtleneck long-sleeved top and a red knee-length A-line skirt styled with a logo-detailed black leather belt.

Adding more colors to her already bold look, the Oscar winner carried a small pink purse and slipped her big feet into a pair of metallic Mary Jane pumps, also from the Italian luxury fashion house.

They have a pointed-toe silhouette topped with the label’s triangular logo and finished with 3-inch heels.

She then accessorized the fun, retro look with Pomellato jewelry, including a pair of long drop earrings and a statement ring, selected by her stylist Julia von Boehm.

Allowing her outfit to take center stage, Laura pulled her tresses back into a messy, wavy ponytail and wore minimal makeup with red lipstick to complement her outfit.

On Wednesday, the Marriage Story star visited Live with Kelly and Ryan to promote Jurassic World Dominion.

For her appearance on the show, Laura decided to show off her wild side in a zebra-print pantsuit from British designer Stella McCartney’s Resort 2023 collection.

She paired a tailored, collarless blazer that features a front snap fastening with matching relaxed straight-leg pants. Underneath, she wore a $108 Commando “Butter” black short-sleeved crewneck bodysuit.

Giving the zebra look a pop of color, Laura finished off her ensemble with Jimmy Choo Love pumps in red patent leather.

She styled the bold look with a dainty gold necklace and a pair of $1,250 Turner & Tatler sapphire and diamond drop earrings, finished with a $961 Sambar clutch in black velvet and a pair of dark sunnies.

At the London photocall for Jurassic World Dominion, the Little Women star couldn’t be missed in a purple dress from Stella McCartney.

Cut from silk jersey using eco-friendly viscose, the dress features a slinky, draped silhouette with a fitted diamond-cut waist. It also comes with a high neck, long sleeves, and a pleated skirt that fell a few inches below her knees.
