Finally our speculation about BD Wong’s return as Dr. Henry Wu in the upcoming Jurassic World sequel can be out at ease. After months of coyly denying his involvement, and only a hint that he may return from Frank Marshall, BD Wong took to Instagram to seemingly confirm his involvement in Jurassic World 2 with a bang (or should I say roar?).
This picture is tagged to Pinewood Studios – the very place where Jurassic World 2 will be filming, and home of its current production offices. As far as I can tell, the Velociraptor in the picture is one of the 1:1 busts created by Legacy Effects for Jurassic World (this very one being Blue if I am not mistaken). While it’s possible it represents a Velociraptor in Jurassic World 2, I think it’s simply a really cool prop making its home in the production offices.
I’m thrilled that we can finally rest knowing BD Wong will return as Dr. Henry Wu – he is perhaps the character I am most interested in learning more about, and I know other fans feel similarly. He joins Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Justice Smith, Daniella Pineda, James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Toby Jones, and Rafe Spall in the highly anticipated Jurassic Park sequel.
Jurassic World 2 is expected to begin filming in just two weeks, so stay tuned as more news is sure to come!
