According to sources, the upcoming sequel is expected to introduce a new storyline to the franchise, which has been around for thirty years. It remains uncertain whether any of the previous actors, such as Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Neill, Laura Dern, or Jeff Goldblum, will be making a comeback.

“The Creator” is the latest movie directed by Edwards. The movie follows the story of an ex-special forces agent, played by John David Washington, who is sent on a mission to destroy a weapon that has been built to tip the scales against humanity in a decades-long war. However, upon arrival, he discovers that the target is an AI that has taken the form of a child.
