The new Jurassic World movie, Dominion, has now got a release date - and it's just a casual two years to wait.
Yep, Universal Pictures has confirmed the much anticipated movie will be hitting screens on 10th June 2022. They do like to keep us on our toes...
The news broke in a brand new poster which dropped on social media, and also teased the all-star lineup.
Stars from the original film franchise including Sam Neil, Jeff Goldblum and Laura Dern will be returning.
Chris Pratt, Bryce Howard, Daniella Pineda, Scott Haze and BD Wong also star.
The news we have another two years to wait will be a disappointment for some viewers, seeing as the movie was originally tipped to land next summer.
It was apparently nothing to do with coronavirus, though - despite some crew members testing positive in remote locations.
In fact, the Colin Trevorrow directed movie is actually on track to be finished shooting in around three weeks at its UK site.
Instead, the delay is more about dropping at a time when there are less big 2021 blockbusters like Black Widow and No Time To Die to compete with.
While it might be a while before we get to see the dinosaur filled movie, we've been given some sneak peaks of the set during the filming process.
Giving us a glimpse at the filming in action, Colin Trevorrow shared a snap of actress Bryce Dallas Howard in a dinosaur head in front of a green screen.
Meanwhile, Chriss Pratt shared a picture of the director's gong, teasing fans on day one of filming.
And Bryce Dallas Howard shared some snaps of the jungle backdrop as she returned to a Covid-secure set in August.
The new film will be the sixth in the franchise. The last movie, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was released in 2018.
While details of the upcoming film are being kept under wraps, it's set to follow on from the 2018 instalment which saw the dinosaurs leaving the confines of Isla Nublar - which was destroyed by a volcano - to roam free on earth.
Laura Dern played Dr Ellie Sattler in the movies, while Sam Neill starred as Dr Alan Grant - although they haven't been seen in the films since the 2001 instalment, Jurassic Park III.
Chris Pratt will also star as Owen Grady (having starred in Jurassic World and 2018's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom).
Meanwhile, Jeff Goldblum (who plays Dr Ian Malcolm) also featured in the 2018 sequel.
Speaking with Empire, director Colin Trevorrow explained that the new film was a way for the iconic stars to continue their characters' legacy.
"We'd have to come up with a reason why Ellie, Malcolm and Grant all went to the theme park on the exact same day it broke down - again. The next film allows the legacy characters to be a part of the story in an organic way," he said.
New Girl's Jake Johnson will also return as Lowery while Bryce Dallas Howard (who plays Claire Dearing) and Omar Sy (Barry) will also be part of the sixth film.
Alongside director Trevorrow, Steven Spielberg will also be producing the next instalment.
We might have a while to wait but we can all agree it will be oh-so worth it.
