The Jurassic Park universe will now tell the backstory of Claire Dearing and Simon Masrani through Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. So, the franchise fans will get to know more about the former park manager and her relationship with dinosaurs.
But it wouldn't be done through the upcoming science fiction adventure film, starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard in lead roles. The story of the former park manager will be narrated through a Young Adult novel by Random House.
The novel will be released in May 2018 and it will take the franchise fans through the journey of Claire with Simon Masrani and his theme park. The working title of the book is Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Young Adult Novel, according to a fansite called Jurassic Outpost.
