Filming is coming to a close on Jurassic World 2 and a wrap party has allowed for the first look at its logo to surface online. Following the record-breaking success of Jurassic World, the sequel has a tough road ahead to replicate that financial success. Thankfully, the sequel is returning a few of the key components that helped bring the franchise back as both Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard are reprising their roles. But, they are far from alone on this adventure with a new supporting cast around them – including the return of Dr. Ian Malcolm played by Jeff Goldblum.
Production on the sequel has been ongoing since the early portions of this year, but the sets have yet to reveal any substantial pieces of information. However, as they’ve finished filming in England, the cast and crew had a mini-wrap party, which has brought about the first logo for the film.
Reel News Hawaii was able to find the logo thanks to one attendee’s Instagram story. The logo is not accompanied with any type of graphic behind it, but instead just a black background featuring a Jurassic World II logo in similar fashions to the Jurassic Park sequels.

The design of the logo is not too surprising as the franchise once again uses the claw mark styling for the numerical values. This is just the first logo that we’ve seen to this point, and studios have no problem tweaking logos as they move closer to the film’s release. If this is the final design, it will certainly look better when it is on official pieces of marketing and not being featured by itself. However, it could also still undergo a series of redesigns and Universal just mocked this one up for the purposes of the party.
It is very possible that Jurassic World 2 will keep this simple title, but most Hollywood blockbusters have continued to add subtitles in favor of simply keeping the number. Should Jurassic World 2 have a subtitle, Universal may still want to hold off on revealing that for some time to save it for later in the marketing. In either instance, once filming completes in the coming months, the truly official logo for the film will come out. In the meantime, with production moving to Hawaii, there is the potential for some better looks at filming to surface before director J.A. Bayona wraps up the sequel.
