At least, that’s according to a Tweet from series producer Frank Marshall, who posted a photo from his HQ in London earlier this morning with the caption: “My office in London up and running [sic]. And so it begins…” The English capital is reportedly one of the locations earmarked by Universal, which has seemingly mapped out plans for filming to take place in Wales and Hawaii over the coming months. From what we understand, the cameras aren’t rolling just yet, but at the very least, this is a sure-fire sign that Universal has got the ball rolling on Jurassic World 2.

Pitched as the second entry into the studio’s rebooted trilogy, Jurassic World 2 will be directed by franchise newcomer J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls), who replaces Colin Trevorrow at the helm after the latter departed for a galaxy far, far away (read: Star Wars: Episode IX). Trevorrow will still have a creative input on Universal’s monstrous sequel though, given he penned the screenplay alongside writing partner Derek Connolly.
So far, little is known about the actual story that Trevorrow and Connolly have rustled up. Rumor has it that Jurassic World 2 will incorporate themes of animal rights and even more genetically modified dinosaurs, as InGen’s precious formula falls into the wrong hands. And though it’s by no means a confirmation, Jurassic Outpost has spotted three domain names for Bayona’s follow-up that appear to divulge some crucial plot points. Registered by Universal Pictures back in December, two of the domains are public: AllCreaturesHaveRights.com and .org, while the second is titled IslaNublarRescueMission.com. All creatures have rights surely lends credence to the issue of dino rights, while Isla Nublar Rescue Mission points to a return trip to that famous island.
Jurassic World 2 will be with us on June 22nd, 2018.
