Not counting a very elderly T. rex, Mr. DNA, and some night vision goggles, the only real character from the original Jurassic Park to pop up in Colin Trevorrow’s sequel/reboot Jurassic World was B.D. Wong’s Dr. Henry Wu. That’s going to change for Jurassic World 2, though, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Jeff Goldblum’s Dr. Ian Malcolm will be making a very ill-advised return to the world of dinosaur-filled theme parks. Goldblum’s character last appeared in 1997’s The Lost World, and though we don’t know anything about what he’ll be doing in Jurassic World 2, he’ll probably have something to say about chaos theory, his distaste for dinosaur droppings, and the fact that life, uh, finds a way.
Jurassic World 2 is being directed by A Monster Calls’ J.A. Bayona, and along with Goldblum, it’ll feature the return of original Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.
