It looks like one of Jurassic World's most memorable dinosaurs will be back for the sequel.

Filming on director J. A. Bayona's Jurassic World 2 is under way now, and we already know that scenes featuring the Dilophosaurus and the classic T-Rex are being shot.

Another fan-favourite dino returning - according to the Daily Mail - will be the sneaky and vicious Velociraptor. But not just any raptor!

The newspaper reports that we'll actually catch up with Owen Grady's (Chris Pratt) domesticated raptor Blue - who was last seen in Jurassic World darting into the forest to escape a rampaging T-Rex.

The same sinister group who were trying to weaponise dinosaur DNA in the last film will apparently return to Isla Nublar in hopes of capturing Blue, springing Owen into action to save her.

Lending at least some credence to the latest rumour was an influx of military vehicles being delivered to the UK set of Jurassic World 2 in the past few days.

It's not just classic dinosaurs who'll be making a comeback in Jurassic World 2 - original franchise star Jeff Goldblum is reprising his role as Dr Ian Malcolm too.

New cast member James Cromwell has also revealed that his character Benjamin Lockwood has ties to the past, having developed dino cloning tech with the park's creator John Hammond (Richard Attenborough).

Jurassic World 2 stomps into UK cinemas on June 8, 2018 and US cinemas on June 22, 2018.
