No expense is being spared for Universal’s Jurassic World sequel.
The still frame shows a young girl standing before the colossal skull of a Triceratops skeleton in what appears to be a lavish museum exhibit. Also on display are more predatory dinos that look very similar to velociraptors seen in previous installments in the series. Absent, however, are the remains of the Indominus Rex that terrorized the guests of Jurassic World in the previous film. Presumably, her body is still being digested by the leviathan Mosasaurus.
No word on the identity of the young woman amongst the relics of the Jurassic period. Will the series jump ahead a few years, revealing a child between stars Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt, whose romance was reignited by the prospect of being devoured by terrifying monsters of a bygone era, or will this child have an entirely different origin altogether? Perhaps the future generation of Prof. John Hammond, the man responsible for the creation of Jurassic Park in the first place?
One more thing to consider: the new set is reminiscent of Hammond’s study from 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
Jurassic World 2 opens June 22, 2018.
