Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is wrapping up its final week principal photography.


Producer Frank Marshall took to social media yesterday with a photo from the Jurassic World 2 wrap party, revealing that production is entering its final week. The producer apparently also moonlights as a DJ, spinning some tunes for his hard-working cast and crew. Here's what Frank Marshall had to say in a recent tweet, which accompanied a photo of the producer with his DJ setup.

"As JW2 wraps up it's final week, a big thanks and lots of dancing for fantastic London and Hawaii crews! @JurassicWorld #JurassicWorld2"

The sequel, which will be titled Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, began filming in London in February before the production moved to Hawaii for the duration of principal photography. The movie will bring back Chris Pratt's Owen and Bryce Dallas Howard's Claire, alongside new characters played by Justice Smith, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Daniella Pineda, Geraldine Chapman, and Ted Levine. 

The sequel will have quite a few Jurassic Park connections, including the return of Jeff Goldblum and the introduction of James Cromwell as Benjamin Lockwood, the former partner of Richard Attenborough's John Hammond, the original founder of the park. "We developed the technology of being able to plum the genes," Cromwell previously said of his character. "So I am trying to deal with the blowback from what we have done."

Spanish director J.A. Bayona (A Monster Calls) will also be bringing back the use of animatronics and practical effects which could be a return to form for the dino-rampaging franchise. Colin Trevorrow, who wrote the script along with his Jurassic World writing partner Derek Connelly recently teased that the new Jurassic is essentially a Spanish horror thriller.  The movie’s cast and crew, when asked during interviews, have been keen to emphasize that the Jurassic World sequel will be scarier than its predecessor, thanks in no small amount to the involvement of Bayona, an acclaimed filmmaker whose body of work includes the horror film The Orphanage and TV show Penny Dreadful, as well as the survival thriller The Impossible.
