Cameras are already rollling on J.A. Bayona's (A Monster Calls) untitled Jurassic World sequel, but the director took time out from his busy shooting schedule to share a mysterious new shot from the dino-loaded sequel.

Revealed via his Twitter account, the image depicts what has been described as one of the new main characters named "Lucy," standing before a triceratops-like skull inside a cavernous natural history museum filled with ancient fossils.

We're still without an official synopsis, but this image does evoke a certain somber reflection of the 65-million-year rift between the two species.

Bayona did offer these thoughts on the evolution of his film to Coming Soon:

"Every story is different and you need to find the depth of every story and try to express it on the screen. The Jurassic World sequel is a more collaborative filmmaker experience, not only with Colin Trevorrow, but also with Steven [Spielberg] and with Frank Marshall. It's their baby as much as it is mine. It's about sharing views and working together to bring the story to life. But, at the same time, the way I face telling a story is to find something very personal. I think there will be plenty of myself also in the film."

Jurassic World 2, sadly burdened with this boring title for now, is set for a June 22, 2018, release and stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Toby Jones, Justice Smith, Rafe Spall, Ted Levine, Daniella Pineda, Geraldine Chaplin and James Cromwell.
