Original Rex Confirmed for Jurassic World 2 Sequel!

It’s time to visit an old friend once again! The original Tyrannosaur from Jurassic Park and Jurassic World will be returning in the highly anticipated sequel. Confirmed yesterday by Jurassic World 2 Writer/Producer Colin Trevorrow in response to a concerned fan questioning whether or not ‘Rexy’ would be returning on behalf of her young daughter.

Now that it is confirmed she is returning, we can start speculating about the sequel and how she fits in to the plot.

This confirmation of the original Rex returning more or less confirms that Isla Nublar is returning. While this may be obvious based on what we have already seen and heard, this certainly adds more credibility. In addition, it will be interesting to see if the senior-citizen Rex will return as an animatronic creature as opposed to its CGI counterpart in Jurassic World.

Let’s us know what you think about this news and if you’re excited to see the classic Rex return again!

Geraldine Chaplin joins the cast of Jurassic World 2!

In what could’ve been called an absolute certainty, Bayona-staple Geraldine Chaplin, daughter of legendary filmmaker Charlie Chaplin, has joined the ever growing cast of Jurassic World 2.

Announced today on Twitter by the Director himself, Chaplin has had roles in all 3 of his previous feature films; The Orphanage, The Impossible and A Monster Calls. Starting out with an uncredited role in her father’s ‘Limelight’, she has had a massively diverse career in English, French and Spanish cinema.

The addition of another well established actress is certainly an exciting announcement for Jurassic! Are you a fan of Geraldine Chaplin? Comment below!
