Over the past few days, Universal Pictures has been releasing a series of teasers for next year’s sequel Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and now ahead of the arrival of the trailer this Thursday, Entertainment Weekly has revealed some plot details for the fifth instalment of the Jurassic Park franchise.
According to the outlet, the film takes place several years after the events of Jurassic World, and sees Claire Dearing (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen Grady (Chris Pratt) returning to the now-abandoned Isla Nublar in order to protect its dinosaur inhabitants from a second extinction when a volcano threatens the island.
“Claire’s founded an organization, Dinosaur Protection Group, and they’re finding a way to get these dinosaurs off the island,” reveals Howard. “She reaches out to Owen Grady to let him know this is happening. It’s complicated. When you see them at the beginning of this story, you get caught up as to what’s going on, but it’s not what you would necessarily expect.”
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful franchises in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is set for release on June 22nd, 2018 and sees J.A. Bayona directing a cast that includes franchise veterans Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum alongside newcomers Toby Jones (Captain America: The First Avenger), Rafe Spall (Black Mirror), Justice Smith (The Get Down), Ted Levine (Silence of the Lambs), James Cromwell (The Young Pope), Daniella Pineda (The Detour) and Geraldine Chaplin (A Monster Calls).
