Following a worldwide haul of more than $1.5 billion, Universal Pictures announced a sequel for Jurassic World. However, it was already in the cards before the film even dropped.
Apparently, the original plan was a trilogy.
During a recent roundtable with The Hollywood Reporter, Universal executive Donna Langley revealed plans for the future of the franchise.
“[Director] Colin Trevorrow is busy working on an outline. He’s been working with Steven [Spielberg],” she said. “And, they have an idea for the next two movies actually. It was designed as a trilogy, unbeknown to us. It’s a happy surprise.”
Details about the third film are unknown, but the sequel is set for Summer 2018, with actors Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard returning to reprise their roles as Owen Grady and Claire Dearing, respectively.
