After last year's surprise smash success of Jurassic World with $650 million domestically and over $1.67 billion worldwide. It comes as no surprise that the sequel was on its way, and now we know who will be directing the upcoming sequel.
Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow took to his Twitter account just a little while ago to announce that J.A. Bayona, director of The Impossible, The Orphanage, and A Monster Calls we be helming the upcoming sequel.
Trevorrow officially passed the "baton" of the Jurassic franchise by saying this:
" Proud to collaborate with one of my favorite filmmakers on the next Jurassic adventure. JA Bayona, it’s all yours."
In case you're wondering why Colin Trevorrow isn't coming back, it's because he will be busy directing a "little" film called Star Wars: Episode IX.
We will update you as more details become available on this sequel. Sound off in the comments with your thoughts.
Jurassic World 2 is set to hit theaters on June 22nd, 2018.
