First Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Story Details Revealed

As Universal Pictures continues their push for the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom trailer this Thursday (check out all the trailer teases so far), the first story details from the sequel have arrived online (via EW).

In the film, Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire Dearing has founded an organization called “Dinosaur Protection Group,” enlisting the help of new characters played by Daniella Pineda and Justice Smith. Their mission is “finding a way to get these dinosaurs off the island” as an active volcano threatens to make the animals go extinct, again. The film really kicks off when she goes to Chris Pratt’s Owen Grady for some help.

“When you see them at the beginning of this story, you get caught up as to what’s going on,” Howard said of the character’s relationship. “But it’s not what you would necessarily expect.”

Expect more details on the film to be revealed as the trailer debuts this Thursday night!

Pratt and Howard are joined by co-stars James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, while BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles from the first film in the series.

Directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible), the epic action-adventure is written by Jurassic World’s director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, Derek Connolly. Producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley once again partner with Spielberg and Trevorrow in leading the team of filmmakers for this stunning installment. Belén Atienza joins the team as a producer.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is set for release on June 22, 2018.
