I’m quite certain that it has been said that the current JP area in IoA is being rethemed to Jurassic World when the new coaster is installed.
Apparently that originally was going to be the case due to the re theme of the Hollywood ride, however internal plans have apparently changed due to this new park and other projects in other parks.
According to reliable sources Universal wants to sell the idea of a 'Storytelling' resort, with multiple lands in multiple parks to be a cohesive experience. As with Wizarding World in both parks and a new Fantastic Beasts one to be set in the past in a new park. Universal Studios Beijing is currently being built and is having a completely original area dedicated to Jurassic World, so the current rumor is we will be seeing a larger clone of this world at the new park. So then the US can have 2 different versions of the River Adventure ride, one that's more iconic and one that's more new. The new coaster is a tricky one, we know its happening, with are pretty sure of the type (Intamin Blitz) and the tricky one is a theme, which is something more associated with Jurassic World, Raptors.
Is a third Harry Potter land needed there is still a large amount of land on the 'London' side that could be filled with 2-3 large rides? Does Jurassic World have the popularity for another land? Dreamworks makes a lot of sense though and they already have a bunch of rides they could quickly put in it..
Potter sells, its Universals big money maker, they'd be stupid not to feature it in a new park. There was a rumor that Fear Factor would close to have a ministry of magic ride built there, but has since been moved for the Fantastic Beasts area for the new park due to the success of the films, set in a different time period to the other lands and how the various ministries have important roles in the films. As for Jurassic World, the last movie made $1.3 billion so I'd say its pretty popular.
