Time to bust out of the high heels and escape some dinosaurs!
While production news has been swirling around regarding Jurassic World 2’s shooting in London, we now have official confirmation.
Series star Bryce Dallas Howard posted to Twitter, revealing her character of Claire is back and ready to kick (or save) some dino tail.
She writes, “We have an asset out of containment. Put ACU on alert. This not a drill.”
Howard follows up the quote from the first film with by saying, “Day 1.”
The actor will share the screen with Chris Pratt and B.D. Wong who are both reprising their roles from the first film.
Little is known about the plot thus far, except that it will deal with animal rights. Writer (and director of the first film) Colin Trevorrow has stated that the film would recognize issues of animal abuse in terms of how the dinosaurs are treated.
This is backed up with new information that hints the dinosaurs will be trained and armed for battlefield deployment, which Vincent D’Onofrio’s villainous character from the first film pushed for.
Developments surrounding the marketing and promotion of the film have hinted toward these plot points, but we likely won’t get confirmation at least until an official synopsis is released.

Now, it's up to a former military man and animal expert (Chris Pratt) to use his special skills to save two young boys and the rest of the guests from an all-out, prehistoric assault.
