 Jurassic World 2 has been filming for about a week now and director J.A. Bayona just released the first official image. In it, we see a young girl in a museum filled with dinosaur fossils. Where could this be? Who is this character? And where did these bones come from?

Here’s the full image via Twitter. Click to blow it up.

So let’s break this down. We do not know who this girl is. Maybe Claire and Owen’s kid? Maybe someone else? Also, the amount of detail and money on display in this room likely suggests it not part of a theme park. So who is this girl? Why is she there? And, most importantly, who collects all these dinosaur skeletons? Where did this person get the skeletons? Is it someone who got them from the original Jurassic Park? Or is this from Jurassic World?

Like we said, lots and lots of questions, none of which we have answers to but we’re excited to find out more.

Jurassic World 2, starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Chris Pratt, Ted Levine, Daniella Pineda, Geraldine Chaplin, Justice Smith, Rafe Spall and Toby Jones opens June 22, 2018.

I think we’re breaking it down from the wrong angle: to heck with the kid, who are the dinosaurs?

We’ve got an ankylosaur and a kosmoceratops on the right, possibly an albertosaur (too small for a t-rex) and a hadrosaur on the left (and is that an actual velociraptor skeleton in the background, opposite the protoceratops, a faint reference to Gobi Desert fossil where they were found locked in a death match?)... but what in god’s name is that central skull supposed to be? Because that doesn’t look like any tricerotops skull that I’ve ever seen. Torosaurus? Mojoceratops?

Tell me, Jurassic World! I need to know!
