Jurassic World took the world by storm when it was released in 2015, a new entry into the Jurassic Park franchise, people couldn’t get enough of it. It made $1 billion at the box office in 11 days which is a record. It also upped the anti in terms of dinosaurs, it introduced us to the Indominus Rex, a new man made hybrid dinosaur.
Ever since the sequel was announced fans have been speculating what new dinosaurs the sequel may introduce and what classic dinosaurs may return. We already know that Rexy will be returning for the sequel and we now have our first look at some of the other dinosaurs that will be appearing in the film. A few images have started to appear on the web, they give us a look at some of the animatronic models of the new dinosaurs being used in the new film. These were taken by some people passing by the set, and they depict two different types of dinosaurs.
The first dinosaur shown is the Apatosaurus, but it hard to make out. In the photo, you can see the long-neck bending down on the left side, appearing near its large trunk-like leg.
The other images are of a Dilphosaurus, which long-time fans of the Jurassic franchise will probably remember from the original movie. If you recall, this is the dinosaur that sprayed down Nedry in the Jeep, after he’d lost his glasses. Whats interesting about using these dinosaurs is that it could be a nod back to the first film or even a way to bring the series back towards it, its hard to tell at this point, but it is great to see the Dilphosaurus back.
Jurassic World 2 is being directed by J.A. Bayona and stars Bryce Dallas Howard (Claire), Chris Pratt (Owen), Rafe Spall, BD Wong (Dr. Henry Wu), Toby Jones, and Justice Smith. The film is being produced by Belen Atienza, Patrick Crowley, and Frank Marshall, with Steven Spielberg, Colin Trevorrow, and Thomas Tull serving as executive producers.
Jurassic World 2 is scheduled for release on June 22, 2018.
