With less than two years until its release date, there is still plenty of prep work to be done on Jurassic World 2. So, what do we really know about the sequel at this early date? Quite a bit, actually. We know when it will hit theaters. Who is starring. And who is directing. We even have a vague outline of the plot. But let's look deeper, shall we?
