It appear that Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has taken a leaf out of The Mandalorian's book.

Posting to Twitter, the director has gone full steam ahead with the cuteness (following the runway fandom of Baby Yoda in the Disney+ flagship show) with a new baby dinosaur primed for the next instalment in the movie series.

“Ready,” he captioned, with a picture of the baby triceratops poised in the movie's workshop.

Trevorrow is back on the dino-franchise after being dismissed from the Star Wars universe – he was all set to direct the ninth movie – what became The Rise of Skywalker – before creative differences saw him depart the production.

However, he's not averse to it coming up in conversation with fans.

As yet, there's not much to go on in terms of JW3's plot, other than we'll see the return of Sam Neill and Laura Dern in this final movie of the current trilogy.

They'll reprise their roles of Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler from Jurassic Park and Jurassic Park III, joining Jeff Goldblum's mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm.

One snippet of detail Trevorrow has dropped is that the movie will concern the newly bred generation of dinosaurs going 'open source', following the beginning of the 'neo-Jurassic Age', a coined by Goldblum at the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

As seen in the brief short Battle At Big Rock, in which a family camping out in Northern California happen upon some loose dinosaurs, we'll see what happens when the Jurassic creatures and humans have to learn to in the same world.

It's due out in the UK on 11 June, 2021.
