It seems like everything having to do with Jurassic World 2 has been totally hush-hush, but we now know that a fan favorite will be returning.
According to the film’s producer, one very important member of the Jurassic family will be coming back for the sequel… Rexy the T-Rex!
On Monday, a fan named Kevin Rodenhofer II posted an adorable photo of his daughter sleeping with her Rexy stuffed animal. He posed a question to the film’s producer, Colin Trevorrow, director J.A. Bayona, and Bryce Dallas Howard, who stars in the film (and is set to return for the sequel).
“@colintrevorrow @FilmBayona @BryceDHoward can you confirm or deny Rexy making an appearance in #JW2 ? She’s my daughters favorite. 😊,” he wrote on Twitter.
After seeing the tweet, Trevorrow replied and gave us the answer we were all secretly hoping for.
“Confirmed,” he wrote. “Tell her when she wakes up.”
It might not sound like a lot, but she is a very important character. The iconic T-Rex was in both the original Jurassic Park and 2015’s Jurassic World.
Other casting confirmations include, Chris Pratt as Owen and BD Wong as Dr. Henry Wu.
