Chris Pratt is confirmed to be returning for 'Jurassic World 2' and the blockbuster is going to take the dinosaur action out of the theme parks.

Director Colin Treverrow has confirmed the release date for the sequel will be June 2018 and teased that the movie will include more hybrid dinosaurs, like the current film's Indominus Rex, let loose in the world with Pratt's character, Velociraptor expert Owen Grady, leading the fight to stop them.

Treverrow said: ''I feel like the idea that this isn't always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment.

''Dr. Wu says in the film, when he's warning Dr. Mesrani, 'We're not always going to be the only ones who can make a dinosaur.' I think that's an interesting idea that even if we don't explore fully in this film, there is room for this universe to expand.'' The movie has become one of Universal's biggest grossing of all time banking over $1.5 billion at the box office so far and Treverrow wants to expand the military motif of 'Jurassic World', which sees character Vic Hoskins want to weaponise the dinosaurs for military combat.

He told Wired: ''When you look back at nuclear power and how that started, the first instinct was to weaponise it and later on we found it could be used for energy.

''I shouldn't use the word universe, because people will think we're making a 'Jurassic World' universe. We're not.''
