Four months before Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hits theatres, Universal Pictures has announced plans for a third instalment in the rebooted dinosaur franchise.

Universal said on Wednesday that Jurassic World 3 will land in June 2021. The film is to be written by Emily Carmichael and Colin Trevorrow, the director of 2015’s Jurassic World. Carmichael co-wrote the upcoming sci-fi adventure Pacific Rim Uprising.

Jurassic World ranks among the biggest box-office hits of all time. It launched with a US$208.8 million opening weekend and finished with US$1.7 billion worldwide in ticket sales.
