Jurassic World: Dominion star DeWanda Wise has responded to the mixed to negative reviews the movie has received from fans and critics.

The Jurassic Park / Jurassic World franchise remains beloved by fans for the most part, but Dominion received criticisms for its plot, dialogue, characterisation and even some of the CGI.

Wise, who plays pilot Kayla Watts in the third Jurassic World movie, believes that what the team behind the movie achieved was special because of the production during the pandemic.

"From my perspective, I've always been pretty critic-immune," she told Insider.

"We made a movie during a pandemic. Like, honestly, you can print this if you want: You can't tell me shit.

"We were the first production back during a pandemic. We all lived together. The people who received this movie with the love that it was created with, that's where I put my focus. That's just who I am naturally. I don't go where I'm not loved."

Colin Trevorrow done with franchise movies

Colin Trevorrow was the surprise choice to helm the revamped Jurassic Park franchise, starting with Jurassic World which was followed by Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom and then Jurassic World: Dominion.

The director was also involved in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker before being replaced in the chair by J.J Abrams, though he did receive a writing credit.

Trevorrow has spent the majority of his career lately dealing with these franchise pieces, and he now wants to move on to projects with no affiliation to previous fanfare.

"I've learned something every day. For me, I'll be honest, (it's) being able to potentially make something that doesn't have a legion of people to whom it's deeply personal," he told ScreenRant.

"Because I've been in that space on two different franchises for eight years of my life now, and it seems even movies that I've made that weren't about either of these were still kind of in the shadow of which franchise I was attached to.

"(I'm ready) to be able to tell stories in a way that hopefully doesn't have people's childhood in its hands – because I'm one of those people; I understand it. It's a very delicate thing to be working with, the way we felt when we saw a movie like 'Jurassic Park' when were nine years old."
