Bryce Dallas Howard Wraps Jurassic World 2 With An Emotional New Photo

Principal photography for Jurassic World: _Fallen Kingdom_ is wrapping up. Bryce Dallas Howard returned to the sequel to reprise her role from the last film and now that it's over, she's saying goodbye in a beautiful way. She sent out this image on social media showing her saying goodbye to her co-star Chris Pratt. The image is lovely, though Howard claims that her crying over the farewell got ugly.

It's not clear if Bryce Dallas Howard's crying was due to her having to say goodbye to the production of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which she mentions she wrapped after a 60-day shoot, her co-star Chris Pratt who we see her hugging in the Instagram photo, or Hawaii, the location of filming and one of the most beautiful places on Earth. We're sure she wouldn't be the first person to cry while leaving Hawaii.

Clearly, the experience of making Jurassic World 2 was an emotional experience for Bryce Dallas Howard. The idea that a summer blockbuster action movie could bring out that sort of emotion is more than a little unusual, though certainly, the experience of making a movie is very different from the experience of watching the finished product. While the cast and crew were in Hawaii, which sounds great, the filming of the movie itself was likely not in and around a four-star hotel. Spending time in the relative wilderness can certainly bring people together and it may be this which made the movie so emotional for Howard.

It's also possible that the story itself is more emotional than we might suspect. We know very little about what Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is actually about so anything is possible. Maybe Bryce Dallas Howard's character gets eaten by T-Rex and she's sad she won't be back for part three. Maybe Chris Pratt gets torn to pieces by a pack of rabid velociraptors and she feels bad. Neither of these things are particularly likely, but if they were true, it's not like we'd have any idea.

The word on the basic plot is that the film will involve the dinosaur cloning technology becoming much more widespread and that will include seeing dinosaurs used for military purposes among other things. At some point, we know that Jeff Goldblum will return to the franchise in his role as Dr. Ian Malcolm from the first two Jurassic Park movies, but whether he will play a significant role or simply have a cameo isn't known.

We're certainly excited to see what's next for the Jurassic World franchise. The last movie became one of the highest-grossing movies ever, showing that the passion for the franchise is massive, whether or not there are tears involved. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hits theaters June 22, 2018.
