The Jurassic Park franchise continues to roll on, enjoying its second go at success. And this time it's bringing back one of its original stars: Jeff Goldblum.

The first film, Jurassic Park, was released in 1993 and based on a book of the same name by Michael Crichton. He and David Koepp wrote the script, and Steven Spielberg directed. The story followed a theme park with dinosaurs that were created by cloning. Goldblum, Sam Neill, Laura Dern, and Richard Attenborough starred.

At the time it was the highest-grossing film ever released, losing its title in 1998 to Titanic. It won three sound and visual effects Oscars as well as a People's Choice Award and other awards.

After the book received a sequel, so did the film, with The Lost World: Jurassic Park in 1997. Jurassic Park III was released in 2001. Fourteen years later, Jurassic World hit theaters with a new cast, other than B.D. Wong. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard starred, Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly co-wrote the script, and Trevorrow directed as well.

Goldblum was only seen in the first two films, but now he's inked the deal to appear in the fifth film, a follow-up to Jurassic World. Trevorrow and Connolly are writing again, with the former directing again, too. Steven Spielberg, Frank Marshall, and Pat Crowley will return as producers.

Jurassic World was every bit the blockbuster of the first film in the franchise. It earned enough to place it as the number four film of all time.

Goldblum started his career appearing in Invasion of the Body Snatchers, The Big Chill, and The Fly. After also reprising his role from Independence Day last summer, he has two more films coming out – Thor: Ragnarok and Isle of Dogs.

The Jurassic World sequel will hit the big screen on June 22, 2018.
