Jurassic Park Original Star Will Return For Jurassic World Two
In 2018, the follow up to Jurassic World - the ever so snappy titled Jurassic World 2 - will hit our screens.
And it looks like a favourite from the 1993 original will be coming back with it.
The film, that will be directed by J.A. Bayona, will see the return of Rexy the T-Rex. Yes, the dinosaur that broke the gates and ate the man on the toilet.
Colin Trevorrow, who is currently working on Star Wars Episode IX, helped to co-write the screenplay for the latest instalment in the Jurassic series, announced the news on Twitter.
He responded to a tweet by a fan who showed their daughter snuggled up to a cuddly T-Rex. The tweet asked: "Can you confirm or deny Rexy making an appearance in #JW2?"
Trevorrow replied with: "Confirmed. Tell her when she wakes up."
Confirmed. Tell her when she wakes up. https://t.co/d39LBJ7LK5

We already knew that Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard would be returning as Owen and Claire for the second Jurassic World film, and that they'll be joined by newcomers Toby Jones, Rafe Spall and James Cromwell.
The film is set to be moving away from Isla Nublar; will Rexy have a new home?

Whatever has happened, Bayona has promised a darker and scarier town than the first Jurassic World.
Rexy, in all her CGI glory, shot to fame for various actions. She gobbled up the man on the toilet, threw Sam Neill into her enclosure, saved the film's finale from velociraptors, and dieted on the park's goat population.
In Jurassic World, she appeared in the closing scenes - roaring over the remains of the park. The big question lies on how Bayona will better her taking down an Indominus Rex?
The exact details of the second film are being kept closely under wraps and basically it leaves the rumour mill to work at full capacity.
In the only released image so far, a little girl stares at some dinosaur bones - but we will all have to wait until some flesh are put on these.
However, fans in the UK, may not have to wait that long to walk with the dinosaurs again. A Jurassic Park-style experience is coming in the form of a 70-minute creation which will combine dramatic storytelling, scripted actors, and high-end digital graphics.
It should do just enough to whet our appetite for the year.
