Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard set to return for Jurassic World sequel

In what is arguably the least surprising piece of news this month, Universal Pictures have announced this week that a sequel to Jurassic World will be unleashed upon the world on 22 June 2018.

Admittedly, we were all just waiting for this news to break given Jurassic World's record breaking box office run, which has seen the film gross more than $1.5 billion worldwide and take its place above Marvel's The Avengers (2012) on the all time list. The film has yet to receive a title – it may just go with Jurassic World 2 – but we do know that Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will, as per the terms of their contracts, return as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing.

Quite how they will fit into the plot has yet to be revealed, but figuring out the next reason for dinosaurs to rampage again will be the job of Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow and co-writer Derek Connolly, who revamped the script for this year's movie. Trevorrow has already said he won't direct the next entry in the franchise, which means Universal Pictures will either try and pursued him with a ridiculous amount of money, or have already started looking for a new director.

Seeds for potential sequels were already planted in Jurassic World, particularly with – spoiler alert – B.D. Wong's Dr. Henry Wu making good his escape with some genetic specimens as the theme park descended into chaos and carnage around him. So mark your diaries accordingly and start speculating on what will happen in the new movie.
