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.
Confirmed. Tell her when she wakes up. https://t.co/d39LBJ7LK5

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!
