Story details are incredibly scarce so far, but fans have been quick to spot teasers from both Universal and Jurassic Park aficionados too.
With that in mind, join me for a look at the long-awaited Jurassic World sequel and see what fans, and newcomers alike, can expect. A spoiler warning is in force, so if you’d like to go into JW2 with your eyes firmly closed, don’t read on.
