Despite following on from the less favourable Jurassic Park 3, Chris Pratt's Jurassic World was met by huge amount of fan affair, quickly becoming one of the highest-grossing films of all time.

Fans are, of course, very excited for the sequel, which is currently filming in the UK. Director Juan Antonio Bayona has teased the film, posting an image from the production to Twitter.

The photo reveals very little but has a Night at the Museum vibe with those dinosaur fossils on display. The young character standing centre frame is currently unknown.

Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will be back for the sequel, which also stars Toby Jones and The Big Short’s Rafe Spall, is currently filming in London before moving to Hawaii.

Colin Trevorrow - director of Jurassic World - previously whetted appetites for the sequel by teasing plot details, saying: “The dinosaurs will be a parable of the treatment animals receive today: the abuse, medical experimentation, pets, having wild animals in zoos like prisons, the use the military has made of them, animals as weapons.

“The second part will be a very different movie that will explore new paths. For that reason, it was clear that it needed to be Bayona who would direct it, in order to have it grow and evolve with his very personal vision.”

Jurassic World 2 reaches cinemas 22 June 2018. A third Jurassic World film is also currently in development.
