Eli Sutler (Laura Dern) is not seen from Jurassic Park III but returns with Alan Grant (Sam Neal) and Dr. Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) returns to Jurassic World: Dominion.

The original Jurassic Park was based on the best-selling book by Michael Crichton, who also wrote and directed the original Westworld.

The 1993 version of the film would prove to be a groundbreaking blockbuster, and in addition to the great cast and scenery, it pioneered the use of CGI effects.

After two sequels, only one featuring Ellie, the franchise received a seamless reboot in 2015 as Jurassic World, which featured a new character.

Steven Spielberg will once again direct Lost World: Jurassic Park, again based on the novel by Crichton.

Unfortunately, the sequel suffered compared to the original, and Spielberg later admitted to being bored with it.

Not much has been revealed about Ellie's role in Dominion other than confirming that she will be the main focus of the storyline (and more so than Alan Grant or Ian Malcolm).

Whether anything comes of this remains to be seen, although it could put a sizeable spanner in the works for any potential Top Gun 3.
