Filming has wrapped on Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, a milestone director J.A. Bayona announced with a GIF of star Chris Pratt up to his usual shenanigans.
Little is known about the sequel beyond its title, which was unveiled with the tagline "Life finds a way," a callback to Jeff Goldblum's character, Ian Malcolm, from Jurassic Park. The reference is particularly relevant, as the actor returns to the role for the first time since 1997's The Lost World.
Although Bayona has been coy about the plot, he has compared the movie to other notable sequels Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in how they both presented darker tones than their predecessors.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is directed by J.A. Bayona from a script by Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly. Arriving June 22, 2018, the film features returning stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and B.D. Wong, joined by Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, Ted Levine, Geraldine Chaplin, James Cromwell and Jeff Goldblum.
