Its sequel, "The Lost World: Jurassic Park" in 1997 was directed by Steven Spielberg, was based on the novel of the same name by Michael Crichton. Fans and critics pressured Michael Crichton for a sequel novel. He originally declined, but when Steven Spielberg finally started pressuring Crichton, a sequel novel was produced. Although the film is said to be based on Crichton's novel, exactly one scene from the book was used in the movie.

"Jurassic Park III" in 2001 science fiction film is a sequel to "The Lost World: Jurassic Park." It is the first in the series not to be based on a book by Crichton. The film was a moderate success, and had mixed reviews from critics.
