After the huge success of "Jurassic World" in 2015, it was apparent that a sequel should take place soon. Now, "Jurassic World 2" director J.A. Bayona posted the first official photo for the sequel, seemingly confirming that the production has finally started.

"Jurassic World 2" is not set to hit the theaters until June 22, 2018, but the production team has started the ball rolling already, Gamespot noted. J.A. Bayona, - director of "The Orphanage" - who will helm the sequel teased fans with the start of production by posting the first ever photo from production. Taking to Twitter, Bayona posted a black and white photo of several head gears with the recognizable symbol of "Jurassic Park" plastered on it. He then accompanied the photo with words "Getting ready for the journey," which many claimed to mean the start of the sequel's production.

In fact, renowned producer Frank Marshall posted the first ever photo from the set of "Jurassic World 2" giving fans a first glimpse of the sequel, Cinemablend reported. Marshall has been with the franchise from the very beginning, producing several works of Steven Spielberg as well.  In fact, he was responsible for ushering together the new "Jurassic World" franchise.
