Director Colin Trevorrow has announced an end to principal photography for Jurassic World over Twitter, and the image he released has fans excitedly wondering what role one of Jurassic Park‘s most famous dinosaurs may play in the upcoming film.
The image, simply captioned “wrap,” shows a Jurassic World production slate surrounded by the teeth of what appears to be a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a dinosaur that played a major role in the first trio of Jurassic Park films.

Just what part the T. Rex may play in Jurassic World is open to speculation. As The Inquisitr previously reported, the film takes place 22 years after the original Jurassic park, and is set on Isla Nublar, the same island that featured in the first film.
Frank Marshall, who is producing Jurassic World along with Patrick Crowley, posted his own celebratory image on Twitter. In the caption, he thanked the city of New Orleans, where Jurassic World has filmed in recent months, according to The Times-Picayune.
Previously, Trevorrow posted a new image of Jurassic World star Chris Pratt, who also stars in this summer’s blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy. Acknowledging Pratt’s role as Star-Lord in the Marvel film, Trevorrow also referenced Jurassic World‘s planned release date next summer.

Although it was only recently announced that Pratt would star in Jurassic World, a behind-the-scenes clip from Parks and Recreation‘s second season seemingly predicts the role, Entertainment Weekly reports. The tongue-in-cheek video shows Pratt “texting” director Steven Spielberg, saying “I’ll have to get back to you later about Jurassic Park 4.” The video was filmed in 2010, long before the announcement of Pratt’s actual role in Jurassic World.
Meanwhile, Pratt has also revealed in an interview with Total Film that John Hammond’s vision from the first movie will be up and running in Jurassic World. Saying that he is most excited for fans to see the park, Pratt also stated that “everything he dreamed of, and more, is there at that park.” The Jurassic World audience, however will also “see it get torn down.”
Though principal filming may be a “wrap,” fans still have a long wait ahead of them: Jurassic World opens in theaters on June 12, 2015.
