The actress is the latest to board the follow-up to 2015's box office hit. Joining her will be Toby Jones ("Captain America", "The Hunger Games"), Rafe Spall (“Prometheus,” “Life of Pi”), and Justice Smith ("The Get Down", "Paper Towns"). 

Details surrounding the sequel are currently underwraps, however, we do know that stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return for the sequel. It's also expected that B.D. Wong will return, although there has not been any official confirmation regarding this as of yet.

Pineda is perhaps best known for her work on the CW's "The Originals," as well as TBS' "The Detour." Ahead of her "Jurassic World 2" role, Pineda can next be seen in the forthcoming films, "Mr. Roosevelt" and "Before/During/After" -- both of which look to be released sometime this year.
