Following the news that Jurassic World has taken $1.5 billion in box office receipts worldwide, becoming the third-highest grossing film of all time behind Titanic and Avatar, Universal Studios is knee-deep in preparation of the sequel.
The film's director Colin Treverrow has confirmed that the sequel to the blockbuster hit will see the comeback of Chris Pratt and they are planing to take the dinosaur action out of the theme parks. The 38-year-old filmmaker, whose dinosaur adventure film became the third-highest grossing film of all time, teased that the sequel may include more hybrid dinosaurs, like the current film's Indominus Rex, reported Wired.
"(It will not be) just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island. That'll get old real fast. I feel like the idea that this isn't always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment," Treverrow said.

"Dr Wu says in the film, when he's warning Dr Mesrani, 'We're not always going to be the only ones who can make a dinosaur.' I think that's an interesting idea that even if we don't explore fully in this film, there is room for this universe to expand," he added.
The untitled sequel will be executive produced by Steven Spielberg and written by Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow. As announced by Universal Studios the film is slated to release in June 2018.
