For anyone still annoyed about trained Raptors, Chris Pratt has assured us that Jurassic World 2 will be "darker" and "scarier".

While we still don't know too much about what next year's sequel will include plot-wise, Pratt has praised director JA Bayona and reckons that the franchise is in very safe hands.

"He's a remarkable filmmaker. If you haven't seen The Impossible or A Monster Calls, I mean he's really visually masterful. Deep emotions and suspense," he told Screen Rant.

"I think it's going to be a scarier version, a little bit darker, and will continue to expand and carry the story forward in a way that is really unexpected and you wouldn't have imagined."

Pratt's comments echo those of Bayona when we spoke to him last December for his heartbreaking coming-of-age tale A Monster Calls.

"I think one of the reasons they called me is they wanted to go darker and scarier," he explained. "[Jurassic Park is] very dark; it's very scary. I think it's more in that vein. We're going to go back there."

That could explain why one of our favourite dinosaurs, the Dilophosaurus, is making a comeback in Jurassic World 2, marking its first appearance since Jurassic Park.

The T-Rex will also be back to terrorise Pratt and co in the sequel with the co-writer and producer Colin Trevorrow confirming the exciting news on Twitter earlier this month, where he's also been teasing a whole bunch of new dinos.

Jurassic World 2 is in UK cinemas on June 8, 2018 and US cinemas on June 22, 2018.
