Photo: Practical Dinos On “Jurassic World 2” Set

Filmmaker J.A. Bayona has shared a new behind-the-scenes photo from the set of the “Jurassic World” sequel which confirms that Bayona is fulfilling his promise of going practical whenever possible with the follow-up. The shot showcases a group of eleven puppeteers who are on set to help bring one of the dinosaurs to life.

With the exception of one scene with a dying apatosaurus, the first “Jurassic World” essentially stuck with CG – that doesn’t appear to be the case this time around. Back in November, the sequel’s writer/producer Colin Trevorrow, said they deliberately penned in opportunities for animatronics in the sequel – using CG in the same way used in the first “Jurassic Park” film.

Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, B.D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, Daniella Pineda, James Cromwell, Geraldine Chaplin and Ted Levine star in the film which is currently in production ahead of a June 22nd 2018 release.
