A few of the popular cast members from "Jurassic Park" such as Jeff Goldblum, Sam Neill and Laura Dernmight might reprise their roles as Ian Malcolm, Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler in the upcoming sequel of "Jurassic World".

Steven Spielberg, Colin Trevorrow and rest of the members from the creative team are planning new surprises for the fans of dino-centric film franchise and one of them could be bringing back some of the popular characters from the first sequel.

When the latest dinosaur movie hit big screens in June, viewers were expecting a few familiar faces, but geneticist Dr. Henry Wu (BD Wong) was the only one to join the cast list. According to Trevorrow, it is mainly because Spielberg had plans to create something different for the new generation.

"I never saw a draft in which they were included, and I think I looked at every iteration at least once. That was because I think largely, and I'm sure the writers agree, but Steven had a mission to make something new, and he really wanted it to be a Jurassic Park for a new generation. So that was always the mission - however different all of those movies were," Cinema Blend quoted him as saying.

But speculations are ripe that a few of the popular characters from "Jurassic Park", including Malcolm, Grant and Sattler, could probably join the cast list of "Jurassic World 2".

However, the cast and crew are tight-lipped about the recent buzz and fans will have to wait for the official confirmation. As of now, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are the two confirmed cast members for the next sequel of "Jurassic World".

"Jurassic World 2" is scheduled to hit big screens of UK on 7 June and the US on 22 June 2018.
