All the Dinosaurs Are Dead in First 'Jurassic World 2' Photo

Universal Pictures/Slash Film

The Triceratops and Velociraptors are finally getting along — it just helps that they’re dead. The as-yet-untitled sequel to 2015’s Jurassic World — dubbed Jurassic World 2 for the time being — might not yet have a plot, but one thing’s for certain: There will be dinosaurs — or, at least, the skeletons of dinosaurs. No word yet on whether or not there will be living dinosaurs.

Jurassic World 2 director J.A. Bayona tweeted the first official photo for the film on Wednesday, saying: “So excited to show you this!! A first look at the new Jurassic adventure.”

The photo is of a little girl in a red jacket staring down the skull of what looks to be a Triceratops. The skull is one of many skeletons in a dim, dusty museum or private collection, and while it may be the only Triceratops in the collection it’s also the only incomplete skeleton. At least its dino buddies have bodies.

The sequel will bring back Bryce Dallas Howard as Claire, Chris Pratt as Owen, and BD Wong as the ageless Dr. Henry Wu, who was first introduced in 1993’s Jurassic Park. It’s expected that the film will pick up where Jurassic World left off, with stolen dino embryos and the island and its theme park under the jurisdiction of the dinosaurs after the Indominus Rex debacle.

Jurassic World 2 is expected to premiere in theaters June 22, 2018.
