Speaking to LRM, Bayona, who is to direct the sequel to Jurassic World, revealed that the movie is part of a trilogy and he will direct the second part.
He said: "The whole 'Jurassic World' is a trilogy that Colin Trevorrow has envisioned. We're writing the second chapter, and it's very interesting where he's leading the story."

The sequel will arrive in cinemas on June 22nd in 2018. Both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard will return to star in the sequel.
Jurassic World has been directed by Trevorrow and also stars Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, Ty Simpkins and Omar Sy. The movie is the first film to emerge from the Jurassic Park franchise since 2001 and acts as a direct sequel to the earlier movie trilogy.
