The park will reopen — again — in 2018. Universal Pictures has announced that its to-be-titled sequel to "Jurassic World" will hit theaters June 22, 2018.

Stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are back on board for the follow-up to the dino-blockbuster that rebooted the "Jurassic Park" franchise and nabbed the record for the biggest domestic opening ever. Since its release last month, "Jurassic World" has grossed more than $1.5 billion worldwide.

The sequel will be penned by "Jurassic World" director Colin Trevorrow and his writing partner, Derek Connolly; the pair rewrote "World" from an earlier draft by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.

A director has yet to be named for the sequel, though Trevorrow has indicated it won't be him.

Frank Marshall will return to produce the follow-up, and original "Jurassic Park" helmer Steven Spielberg will once again serve as executive producer, this time joined by Trevorrow.
