Throughout the Jurassic Park series, the actors have almost always been secondary to the dinosaurs. Many iconic beasts have dominated our screens, non-so-much as the T-Rex seen in Spielberg’s original film.

Already, filmmaker Colin Trevorrow — who directed Jurassic World — has confirmed Rexy will return for Jurassic World 2, which will be directed by A Monster Calls' J.A. Bayona.

Thanks to leaked on-set photos, we know another dinosaur will be returning for the sequel: the terrifying Dilophosaurus, AKA the venom spitting devil seen in Jurassic Park.

Scientists have found no real evidence that the Dilophosaurus actually spat venom or had the frills seen in the films — instead, they were much bigger and more reminiscent of Velociraptors.

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Jones will reprise their roles from Jurassic World, while Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, and Justice Smith will also make appearances. Filming is currently taking place in London.

Jurassic World 2 is released 22 June with a third film already in development.
