Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, or Jurassic World 2, is set to become one of the biggest and best summer blockbusters of the year.
Jurassic World took the world by storm in 2015 after relaunching the popular dinosaur franchise to a whole new audience.
Jurassic Park, its two sequels (The Lost World & Jurassic Park 3) and Jurassic World are some of the highest grossing box-office movies of all time, and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom looks set to join them when it opens in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on 6th June 2018.
Reuniting its current cast Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard with a screen legend from Jurassic Park’s past, Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic Wolrd: Fallen Kingdon unites the two worlds as the plot looks to move into interesting new territories.
Let’s take a look at what we know so far about Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
What is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom about?
Following on from the events of Jurassic World, the official synopsis for the film reads;
‘It’s been three years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles.
When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission.
Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.
With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favourite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before.
