In 2015 both the old-timers that originally watched Jurassic Park and the Millennials were given the next round in this wonderful universe as the star of Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt, and Ron Howard’s daughter, Bryce Dallas Howard, rejuvenated the franchise. I left the movie feeling satisfied and was happy to see both the T-Rex and BD Wong return to the film. After the spliced dino that terrorized the movie was gobbled up we all wondered about a sequel and just when it would be released.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Howard gives an update on just how soon the shooting will begin.

“I’m getting ready to go to [film] Jurassic [World 2] and I got contact lenses to block off my pupil, I’m leaving really soon. It’s awesome. Now we’re in the flow of things where everyone is talking every day and we’re gonna go put on a show!”

Nice. This indicates to me that shooting will start quite soon, but I had to research her “pupil” comment. Apparently, she is not a vampire and instead has a sensitivity to bright light. She is a redhead and has milky white skin, so I guess this could be common with fair-skinned people as it is known the sun can cause damage at a higher rate than that of the darker skinned variety. Regardless, I am excited to see the next movie in the franchise and I have a feeling that “Jurassic World” may come frightfully true to the name.

In addition to Howard’s comments, the director J.A. Bayona was interviewed by a Spanish magazine and he disclosed the main filming location of the movie. There have been rumors that the movie would be shot in Brecon Beacons, Whales in addition to filming in Pinewood Studios, London and according to Magazinedigital the director has confirmed these reports as it cites Brecon Beacons to be a filming location. There is nothing to support the actual time which will be spent there, but I looked on Google Maps and it is quite a beautiful area, thus making me hope the majority movie will indeed be shot at that location.

As of now, we have about a year and a half to wait as the film is scheduled to drop on June 22, 2018, but we know this is likely not set in stone and only future updates will give us further information and I hope a fantastic trailer as well.

What is the word here? Will Jurassic World 2 be a dinosaur invasion of the entire planet or just the USA? Why not save global domination from our antediluvian gods until the third film?!
