Jurassic World sequel director JA Bayona took to Twitter this afternoon to tease the puppeteer team hard at work bringing the animatronic dinosaurs to life for the new film. The team, shown in the photo below, appears to be working underneath a stage or platform where shooting is taking place.

It was reported back in early February that the Jurassic World sequel was veering away from Legacy Effects practical dinosaurs and instead going with the ‘Creature Shop’ of Oscar Award winning Neal Scanlan. Scanlan might be most well known for his recent work on both of the most recent Star Wars films, ‘The Force Awakens’ and ‘Rogue One’. While Jurassic Outpost cannot 100% confirm, it appears Mr. Scanlan is in the photo second from the left.
Jurassic World star Bryce Dallas Howard, who is reprising her role as Claire Dearing in the upcoming sequel also teased today a fall protection vest that was being used during today’s shooting.
"Hold on to your butts."

Our good friends at the Bryce Dallas Howard Network was the first to speculate that perhaps the teased animatronic dinosaur and the fall protection vest could mean an exciting dinosaur action scene involving Claire.
So what kind of dinosaur do you think the puppeteer team is controlling? Also do you agree with the speculation that this could mean there is an action scene involving Claire and this animatronic dinosaur? Let us know in the comments below and on our forums.
