The dinosaurs will be back for seconds, and lucky for us, they're bringing Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard along with them once again.
After Jurassic World
became one of the biggest successes
of all time for Universal, grossing $1.52 billion worldwide to date and putting it in the No. 3 slot for highest of all time, it would be crazy for there not to be a second (and third and fourth) film.
Director-writer Colin Trevorrow
and co-writer Derek Connolly confirmed with ETonline that they will script the next installment. Connolly told us the two started working on the sequel during a road trip they took just after Jurassic World
If this makes you anxious for round two, sorry, but you'll have to wait a little while -- the sequel won't be released until June 22, 2018. The good news is that the gang, including Pratt and Howard -- will all be back. Steven Spielberg is set to return as executive producer, and producer Frank Marshall will once again lead the team of filmmakers for the next chapter in the franchise.
As long as anything Jurassic World
coming our way includes Pratt -- and his behind-the-scenes antics
-- we will be very happy!
After all, who wouldn't want to think of the next best prank to scare Pratt with?!
Well, maybe the dinos… Watch the creatures get the best of him in the video below:
