Jurassic World: Dominion (2022) Movie Ending, Explained – How did Henry Wu find a solution to avert an ecological crisis? 

Jurassic World Dominion Movie Ending Explained

Jurassic World: Dominion (2022) Movie Ending, Explained: The Jurassic franchise began with the ‘Park’ series, took a hiatus, and returned with the ‘World’ series. Dinosaurs live among humans akin to dogs, pigeons, and any other animal you can think of. While that is a possibility, the reality isn’t amusing. In fact, it’s quite terrifying to have to share territory with prehistoric predators. This is exactly where the Jurassic series has reached.


Jurassic World: Dominion Plot Summary & Movie Synopsis: 

Jurassic World: Dominion showed the results of Fallen Kingdom, which allowed the dinosaurs to roam the earth among humans. However, there was still a misuse of the creatures, as Biosyn aimed to control the food supply by creating genetically modified locusts and training them to destroy all non-biosyn foods. 

This sees the original film duo of Dr. Ellie Sattler and Dr. Alan Grant join forces in an investigation, and they head to meet their former associate, Dr. Ian Malcolm. He now works at Biosyn lab, which is most conveniently situated in the middle of a dinosaur sanctuary. When Malcolm reveals his suspicions of the place, Sattler and Grant do the legwork to get the proof. Meanwhile, they run into Maisie Lockwood, who had been taken from Claire Dearing and Owen Grady’s remote house.


On their end, Dearing and Grady pursue the villains to get their adopted daughter back. Another reason is that Grady made a promise to the dinosaur, a velociraptor named Blue, that he would get her baby (Beta) back to her. 

The two groups united in the forest and fled the dinosaurs, broke into the premises to gather proof, and sneaked past the dinosaurs again. They only managed to fly to freedom safely as the apex predators confronted one another, allowing the humans to escape safely.

The ending saw Dr. Ellie Stattler and Dr. Alan Grant testify, and Biosyn’s premises get turned into a global sanctuary by the United Nations. Also, Dr. Henry Wu redeemed his character and lived up to his promise to seek Maisie. By doing so, he saved the world from a crisis, as the locusts weren’t destroying entire fields of crops anymore. 

On the other thread, Maisie Lockwood returned home with Claire Dearing and Owen Grady; Beta was reunited with Blue.


Did Dr. Ellie Sattler and Dr. Alan Grant get back together?

This hasn’t explicitly happened in the events of Jurassic World: Dominion, but Alan Grant saying I’ll come with you when they landed at the air base near Biosyn was sign one. Another came when Stattler adjusted his tie just before they were about to testify against Biosyn. These small signs, plus a throwback to 1993’s Jurassic Park, where she wanted to start a family, but he didn’t. This led me to conclude that the makers wanted audiences to buy into this theory.


What happened to Biosyn CEO Lewis Dodgson?

Dodgson tried to use the dinosaur DNA and Claire Lockwood’s work to control the world’s food supplies. However, once the CEO realized that people were onto his plan, he destroyed all the evidence.


Dodgson then attempted to escape from his lab through the underground transportation system from the center to the various outposts. It was the only possible way, considering the ground wasn’t safe, and the shields in the air were turned off. Unfortunately for him, he was cornered by a trip of Dilophosaurus that sprayed him with black gunk before seemingly devouring him. The fate of the embryos with Lewis Dodgson wasn’t touched on, but it seems likely that they remained on the global sanctuary. 

Rescue workers may have taken them carefully, or the dinosaurs may have picked up the case and done what they saw fit.

How did Henry Wu find a solution to avert an ecological crisis? 

Claire Lockwood realized she was sick and created Maisie Lockwood through her own genes. However, she altered the DNA to ensure Maisie didn’t suffer from a similar illness. This exact gene alteration helped Dr. Henry Wu save the world from an imminent ecological crisis.


The young Lockwood was seemingly convinced by what she heard and convinced the group to allow Wu to examine her DNA. Through the data he uncovered, Wu reverse-engineered the locusts and stopped them from destroying the world’s food supply. 

Biosyn was converted into a global sanctuary.

Biosyn was a lab in the middle of a huge forest region filled with dinosaurs beneath the water, on the land, and in the air. The lab was used for devious purposes, with the pre-historic beasts serving as a default defense mechanism against any uninvited guests. Audiences witnessed this, with Kayla Watts’ plane carrying Owen Grady and Claire Dearing was intercepted by dinosaurs.


After the events of Jurassic World: Dominion and the testimonies in the climax, the world realized that the place would be a huge problem. Hence, they opted to let the dinosaurs have that as their sanctuary. 

Does the creation of a sanctuary mean that dinosaurs don’t roam the earth anymore?

No. Dinosaurs still walk among humans in this film series universe. It was seen when Dr. Ellie Stattler adjusted Dr. Alan Grant’s tie. A little girl was feeding a baby dinosaur in the background is proof of the same.


Does the sanctuary leave the door open for a return to the franchise?

Audiences may have believed the Jurassic franchise was over with Jurassic Park 3. Then, almost a decade and a half later, they saw the return of the franchise with a sequel ‘The Jurassic World’ trilogy. It was built on the location of Jurassic Park 1 and 2 and expanded into a theme park.


We could very well see an evil corporation take over the sanctuary. However, what’s more, likely is that the sanctuary becomes a tourist attraction for patrons who wish to witness monsters like the Tyrannosaurus Rex or a Giganotosaurus. It would follow the same template of the park systems failing, things going haywire, and ending with a group overcoming the odds and saving the day. 

It’s possible. Perhaps after a few years, if audiences wish to see more Stories from this Jurassic Park Universe.

Well, it would be stating the obvious if someone proclaimed their love for films here. Why else would they be here? What would be useful, is knowing that I adore Hitchcock, Tarantino, and Nolan. I'm not averse to any type of film though as each cinematic work of art assists me in growing as a person and a cinema lover and a writer.
